VMware Keeps On Truckin' With Mobile VDI Demo Center


VMware used its VMware Partner Exchange, held this week in Las Vegas, to unveil the VMware Express, a mobile VDI (virtual desktop infrastructure) demo center built into an 18-wheeler.

The VMware Express semi-tractor and trailer is being leased by VMware for one year, and is slated to travel across the country to help VMware and its solution providers introduce VDI to potential customers.

The VMware Express is likely to show up anywhere to push the VMware virtual desktop message, said Carl Eschenbach, executive vice president of worldwide field operations at VMware.

"We may even show up in front of a Citrix or a Microsoft event," Eschenbach said. "You'll never know where. Unless you're a partner, and then you'll know through our partner portal."
