Double-Take Software and RES Software have entered into strategic alliance, which they claim to simplify desktop management and ensure ongoing user productivity.
According to Double-Take, the joint offering allows IT professionals to maintain a single, shared desktop image that minimises the time and expense of desktop provisioning and management, while increasing desktop control; centrally-manage and deliver personalised, context-aware desktop experiences to any user; and enhance desktop images from a central source without disrupting users’ workspace environments.
Through the alliance, the company has combined its Double-Take Flex OS streaming technology with RES Software’s user workspace management suite.
The company said that the Double-Take Flex reduces the time and expense of desktop and server provisioning and management by creating master images that run over the network and can be shared between multiple systems, while OS streaming technology allows the companies to leverage their existing PC, storage and network infrastructures to create Flextops.
In addition, by separating the user workspace from the operating system, RES PowerFuse automates the management, creation and composition of user workspaces. It provides IT professionals with the ability to offer context-aware, secure and centrally managed delivery of applications, printing, data and personalised settings to end-users, the company said.
