Kaviza is a next generation virtual desktop company founded by virtualization and VDI leaders from HP, IBM, and venture-backed start-ups. Our mission is to make desktop virtualization affordable, easy and practical. Both IT and end-users should be able to use Kaviza as a better and cheaper way to manage desktops, without having to worry about server management or virtualization.
We started Kaviza to address the cost and complexity we saw with first generation VDI approaches. VDI today is an extension of full-blown server virtualization, and hence is very costly and complex. As desktop workloads are very different from server workloads, we saw an opportunity to offer an inexpensive, easy-to-use VDI solution at a fraction of the cost.
So, we designed Kaviza’s solution from the ground up to address the specific needs of desktop virtualization. Kaviza’s team of Ph.D.’s with expertise in fault-tolerant distributed computing developed a desktop-specific scaleout fabric that seamlessly scales on commodity hardware. We abstracted and automated the virtualization management and provisioning so that administrators can focus on what they care about – their users, and their desktops.
Kaviza VDI-in-a-boxTM enables you to create a Kaviza fabric on multiple commodity servers and offers built-in high availability. We are gratified by the growing customer and partner interest in Kaviza.
