CEO: Don Bulens

Desktop virtualization startup Unidesk got a major confidence boost in May when Dell chose its management technology for use in virtual desktop infrastructure projects. Unidesk's VDI provisioning and management technology is now part of Dell's Desktop Virtualization Solutions (DVS) lineup, where it works with VMware View and Citrix XenDesktop to handle image management, storage optimization and the all-important maintenance of a user's personalized settings in VDI environments.

"This is a defining moment for us," Tom Rose, chief marketing officer at Unidesk, told CRN in May.
