ParallelsWeb Hosting ToolsHERNDON, Va. – Virtualization and automation leader Parallels, today announced that BTR Associates has selected Parallels Virtuozzo Containers to deploy and manage their hosted virtual desktop offerings. Parallels’ virtualization technology helps hosting and cloud services providers maximize their IT infrastructure utilization by enabling many end-user desktops on a single-server and by improving the manageability and time-to-market.

Most businesses require core desktop computing, the only issue is how best to deliver the need, and how to deliver in the most cost-effective way. The hosted virtual desktop model addresses this challenge by placing the operating system, applications and associated data on centrally managed servers. The end-user then accesses the applications via the network with the desktop and applications delivered on-demand from the virtual desktop servers.

“The day-to-day maintenance, upgrading and troubleshooting of desktops has become overwhelming to our customers,” explains Bob Breitman, President and Chief Executive Officer, BTR Associates. “The advantage of a centralized desktop architecture is undeniable. Hosted virtual desktops simplify the management of the software needed for desktops and simultaneously deliver a cost-effective solution.” Mr. Breitman also stated, “Our hosted virtual desktop solution, called “A Better AppSM” is delivered on a month-to-month subscription basis, providing additional benefits for organizations with dynamic staffing.”
