SLM Sistemas: Taking Your Desktop to The Cloud

CIO VendorGonzalo Araujo Cabarcas, CEO
The hosted virtual desktop plays a crucial role for the success of a cloud project. Users do not need to make intensive use of bandwidth to access the cloud since applications are hosted within a desktop that is in the same cloud of servers and always available to clients. All GUI programs required by the users (Office, SAP, Dynamics, amongst others) are preinstalled and they have access to the infrastructure hosted in the Cloud (IaaS), also to users' backups (BaaS), this hosted desktop can be accessed from any end point device like IPADs, PC, MAC, Android tablets, and many others. Among other advantages is the fact that the desktop can include a solution for unified communication, IP Telephony with Lync, Asterisk or any other. If users did not have their desktop hosted in the cloud, they would have to install applications in each computer and would also require high bandwidth to be able to reach the servers on the cloud.

Tapping upon this opportunity is SLM Sistemas. Founded in 2000 and based in Caracas, Venezuela is a solution developer focused on virtualization and cloud computing. The company is an expert in the area of desktop virtualization, desktop as a service and remote desktop solutions.

This technology was internally adapted by SLM Sistemas, which is a guarantee of customer satisfaction as they can automate every little piece of the solution hosted in the SLM cloud. This solution is called Galeon VDI.
