Quest Software (http://www.quest.com) has announced expanded device support for Quest vWorkspace with the introduction of vWorkspace connector software for the iPad and “Zero PCs.”
By expanding device support and deployment options for vWorkspace, Quest gives businesses more ways to embrace the benefits of deploying virtual desktops with lower cost and greater mobility, says Simon Pearce, vice president and general manager, Quest Desktop Virtualization Group.
The vWorkspace Connector for Zero PCs extends the concept of a “zero client” to PC hardware, effectively enabling computers to be used as single-purpose client devices that require zero administration and updates, he adds. The vWorkspace Connector for iPads expands the benefits of vWorkspace to a broader set of users by providing support for the most popular dual work and personal mobile device in today’s workplace, according to Pearce.
Enabling desktop virtualization on the iPad also improves mobile user productivity by giving them greater desktop and application availability, he adds. The vWorkspace Connector for iPad is in a trial phase with selected customers and partners, and will be available from the Apple App Store soon.
