AppSense Partners With CSC on Hosted Desktop Solution

AppSense Ltd. announced a desktop virtualization marketing deal with IT services company CSC, based in Falls Church, Va. Under this partnership arrangement, the Melvile, N.Y.-based company's AppSense Management Suite will be included as a component of CSC's Dynamic Desktop, a hosted desktop virtualization offering.

Hosted desktop (also called VDI) relies on centrally based and managed virtualized servers to provide full Windows desktop capability to end users across an enterprise over LAN or WAN connections. Analysts expect this segment of the virtualization market to enjoy robust growth over the next several years.

The AppSense Suite provides what the company calls user environment management specifically associated with personalization and policy profiles. Personalization is especially important in VDI deployments because it maintains end user customization.

End user profile attributes include items such as wallpaper, browser favorites and custom operational settings. The AppSense solution abstracts such user data from both the OS and applications and then manages it, along with policy information specified by IT admins, on a separate server.

AppSense typically works with partners offering VDI solutions via jointly marketed distribution channels. Its current partners include both VMware and Citrix. The CSC offering is being offered through a strategic partnership with Citrix and involves the company's XenDesktop product.
