RingCube Reaches 100,000 Virtualization Users

MojoPac's Rapid Adoption Revolutionizes Desktop Virtualization

RingCube Technologies announced that it has surpassed 100,000 registered users of its MojoPac software platform. MojoPac is a virtualization software platform that allows a user’s desktop environment to be decoupled from the operating system and encapsulated into a secure container, including applications, data, settings and system resources. This rapid adoption further demonstrates RingCube’s innovative leadership in the Desktop Virtualization product category to enable users to gain greater mobility, productivity, and access to their desktops, applications and data.

“The market for portable virtual workspaces is just beginning to develop and the response to MojoPac has been overwhelming,” said Pete Foley, CEO of RingCube Technologies. “To capture over 100,000 registered users in just over 1 year of the first available download for registered users validates the significant value and benefit customers have gained using MojoPac’s revolutionary approach of virtualizing desktop environments and the strength of our product offering.”

“The range of PC virtualization products available in the market is increasing,” according to Leslie Fiering, research vice president at Gartner, Inc. “A new category of PC desktop virtualization is emerging that decouples users from specific hardware systems to enable them to work seamlessly across multiple PCs or notebooks or in multiple locations without lugging heavy devices.”

When development of its first patent-pending Virtual Desktop offering began in 2005, RingCube set a new direction on how to help customers achieve the benefits of mobility, security, and ease-of-use in their desktop environments without the tradeoffs of slower performance, PC upgrades and the massive storage requirements associated with legacy implementations of desktop virtualization. For example, through the deployment of MojoPac, Prometric, reduced the cost and complexity of provisioning secure workstations with the required applications and data in their distributed network.

“Deploying MojoPac brought us significant savings in time, labor and travel costs,” said Kim Langenbach, director of technology at Prometric. “RingCube’s approach enabled us to deploy a secure, lock-down environment with limited mode login while having the required applications, regional settings and plug-ins on portable USB drives. Particularly attractive, MojoPac leverages our existing windows PCs with no need for upgrades to our PC hardware, storage or network infrastructure, and no additional operating system licenses.”

Virtualization technologies in the world of networking, storage, and servers have all provided abstraction layers between the device platforms and the functions and services used in their deployments. These abstraction layers allow customers to better design and deploy complex systems with higher levels of flexibility, reliability, efficiency, and performance. Like networking, storage, and server virtualization, the next wave of virtualization technology has come to desktop environments where customers require similar benefits. However, legacy implementation of desktop virtualization have failed to met these requirements without forcing customers to make significant and often unforeseen investments in storage, network infrastructure, PC hardware, and software as part of their deployment costs.
