NxTop Puts Virtual Desktops on the Road
The NxTop platform uses a bare metal hypervisor on desktop and laptop systems to implement virtual desktops on user systems. The effect of hosting the virtual machine locally enables NxTop users to work untethered to the data center. IT managers should anticipate substantial planning time to ensure that NxTop virtual machine policies and workloads are fine-tuned for your organization. NxTop uses a policy engine and other tools to enable IT managers to customize virtual desktops for individual users or groups of users. NxTop 3.1 will start shipping April 19 and costs $150 per user and requires a Microsoft Windows Server 2008 that is running the Hyper-V role.
