Cloud and virtualization infrastructure vendor VMware Inc. has announced the acquisition of CloudVolumes in a bid to strengthen its ability to deliver virtualized software applications for the enterprise.
CloudVolumes is a California-based application delivery provider, and its solutions allow for the management of applications on VMware’s Horizon virtual desktop platform, Microsoft RDS, Citrix XenApp, Dell vWorkspace and others for delivery to virtual machines.
“Customers are looking to modernize their existing Windows application delivery architecture to be more like mobile IT,” Sumit Dhawan, VMware’s senior vice president and general manager for desktop products, said in a release. “The combination of CloudVolumes and VMware Horizon will allow customers to build a real-time application delivery system that enables all applications to be centrally managed, always available and up-to-date, and delivered to virtualized environments for desktop, server or cloud on-demand.”
