HiveIO & Cloudhelix Join to Take on a $5B Cloud-Based VDI Market
Partnership to take advantage of Virtual Work-From-Home Initiatives
Hoboken, NJ & London, England – September 9, 2020 – HiveIO, the leader in the all-in-one Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) software market, announced today a partnership with Cloudhelix a specialist cloud services provider in the UK. HiveIO and Cloudhelix will work together to deliver best-in-class cloud-based virtualization solutions for customers that want to get started with VDI within hours, and not days or weeks.
As a massive number of businesses, schools, and hospitals go virtual, so do their desktop needs. The combination of VDI technology from HiveIO and specialist cloud expertise from Cloudhelix allows organizations to reduce hardware expenses and IT complexity, enable efficiency across their organization, and control security and compliance. Historically, VDI solutions have been complex, expensive, and performed poorly – unable to deliver the end users experience desktop users demand.
HiveIO has disrupted this market with a state-of-the-art, all-in-one solution, developed on Swam Theory that delivers a high performing VDI solution that scales and heals itself to ensure end users get the best performance. Starting today, organizations can experience the power of HiveIO as a service with the capabilities delivered by Cloudhelix.
Cloudhelix offers a full end-to-end delivery service for HiveIO, taking away the historical challenges associated with delivering complex VDI solutions internally.
“We are extremely excited to be working with HiveIO. Working together, we can meet the needs of organizations needing to deliver a fully managed VDI environment within a fraction of the time and cost seen traditionally” said Mark Underwood, Managing Director at Cloudhelix. “VDI no longer needs to be expensive, complex or ugly to deal with. Our partnership delivers a modern VDI solution that provides value and return on investment from day one.”
VDI has experienced hyper growth in the face of COVID-19 across the globe. In 2019, the market size for end user computing was $5 billion, and some estimate that since then it has already grown to over $11 billion. This is expected to continue to grow due to the impact COVID-19 has had on remote workers. HiveIO is an ideal VDI solution for many organizations because of its ability to deploy fast and perform 24/7. Additionally, it provides the lowest cost of ownership in the market, with a simple per virtual machine monthly pricing.
Offering cloud and on-premise deployment options to cater for a range of use cases, Cloudhelix support cloud-first organizations and those requiring a cloud-like experience on-premise due to data residency or regulatory requirements. Organizations can now transform their approach to end user computing without the need for large investments in time, money or people.
“Cloudhelix has been a great company to work with. They show the same drive and passion for a customer’s success and satisfaction as we do” said Yama Habibzai, president & COO at HiveIO. “We are absolutely looking forward to this joint partnership.
