Leostream and Ericom Partner to Enhance Leostream Mobile Desktop Delivery

Nov 04, 2011 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) -- Leostream Corp., a developer of virtual hosted desktop software, and Ericom Software, a provider of application access and virtualization solutions, announced the integration of Ericom products into Leostream Mobile Desktops.

According to a release, Ericom Blaze RDP compression and acceleration technology, Ericom AccessNow HTML5 RDP client, and Ericom AccessToGo mobile RDP client expand the availability and applicability of Leostream Mobile Desktops to additional mobile devices and use cases.

Leostream Mobile Desktops, originally announced on October 24, provides fully functional, personalizable, and persistent desktops, without the cost and hassle associated with obtaining hardware, configuring operating systems, or building Virtual Desktop Infrastructures (VDI).

The integration of the three Ericom products into Leostream Mobile Desktops allows organizations of all sizes to use Leostream Mobile Desktops to deliver on-demand access to Windows desktops. With the Ericom AccessNow HTML5 RDP client, Ericom Blaze acceleration technology and the Ericom AccessToGo mobile client, Leostream Mobile Desktops are accessible from almost any end-point device that has internet connectivity, including laptops, locked-down PCs, thin clients, Chromebooks, iPad / iPhone, Android and RIM Blackberry / Playbook, etc.

"We're delighted to collaborate with Leostream and be a part of their Leostream Mobile Desktops offering," said Eran Heyman, Ericom founder and CEO. "Delivering fast, simple and easy remote access user experience, especially involving access over slow connections and graphics-heavy content, has always been a challenge to the smooth adoption of cloud technologies. We expect these three remote display technologies by Ericom to enable hosted cloud providers to leverage their offerings and accelerate a wider adoption of cloud hosted desktops." "The adoption of cloud hosted desktops faces the challenge of poor performing display protocols when used on the WAN," said Michael Palin, CEO of Leostream. "Our partnership with Ericom Software allows us to meet that challenge, expanding the reach of Leostream Mobile Desktops to a wider array of client devices and to a more complex set of use cases. The combination of Leostream and Ericom makes cloud hosted desktops that work for everyone." More information: ((Comments on this story may be sent to [email protected]))
