ThinPrint's .print Technology Newly Integrated into VMware View
ThinPrint's Technology Expands Printing Capabilities of VMware View
VMware View is a major advance in virtual desktop computing. With VMware View 3, IT organizations can "decouple" a desktop from specific physical devices or locations to create a personalized view of a user's desktop, applications, and data - called "myView" - that is securely accessible from almost any device, at any time. By hosting these virtual desktop images in the datacenter using the industry-leading virtualization and management platform, VMware Infrastructure 3, VMware View 3 enables IT personnel to provision and manage thousands of virtual desktops simply, securely, and with substantially lower operating costs.
The integration of ThinPrint .print technology with VMware View enables seamless printing in virtual environments, enabling customers to:
• Eliminate the need to deploy printer drivers to individual virtual desktops
• Achieve data compression of up to 98 percent, minimizing network usage while maximizing output speed
• Reduce administration overhead, enabling simplified deployment of virtual desktops
ThinPrint is also releasing .print Engine for VMware View for customers seeking to utilize print servers. .print Engine for VMware View allows the use of dedicated print servers in virtual desktop environments with direct network printer support. This further streamlines print management, enabling all drivers needed to support corporate network printers to be managed in one location. .print Engine for VMware View supports printing from thin clients and features centralized bandwidth management, which can further reduce management overhead.
"We are excited to announce our enhanced cooperation with VMware, as virtual printing is a natural next step to a fully integrated virtual desktop environment," said Charlotte Künzell, senior vice president at ThinPrint. "Our technology powers a broad range of solutions, from smartphones in cutting-edge markets that are on the forefront of technology to most major infrastructure and network technologies in use today. This allows ThinPrint .print technology to be strategically integrated as a print solution in virtually any environment."
"VMware View transforms how enterprises provision and manage desktops while providing increased flexibility to end users," said Jocelyn Goldfein, vice president and general manager of VMware's Desktop Business Unit. "Streamlining the print function within virtual desktop environments will greatly improve the end-user experience while increasing productivity. We are excited to work with ThinPrint to provide our customers with increased convenience, functionality and productivity on their virtual desktops."
