Sphere 3D's V3 desktop cloud computing architecture provides a turn-key appliance solution that eliminates the performance issues, installation challenges and unpredictable scalability associated with traditional VDI. The V3 offering will include a proprietary cloud services portal that automatically provisions and delivers virtual desktops and applications, thus simplifying the desktop-as-a-service delivery model. Sphere 3D's Glassware 2.0 is uniquely positioned to address the increasing demand for a hyper-converged solution that virtualizes the most demanding modern and legacy applications.
Atos is a recognized global leader for delivering innovative cloud and virtualization solutions and the selection of Sphere 3D's V3 and Glassware virtualization products offers new solutions to address the needs of Atos' enterprise customers. This alliance strengthens Sphere 3D's presence and broadens its cloud services deployments through Atos as Sphere 3D continues its global rollout plan to deliver integrated and converged VDI offerings with increased performance, simplicity, security and mobility.
