RT: Partners Support Microsoft RemoteFX

Today Max Herrmann (who posted on this site on March 18) posted a blog that calls out software and hardware partners’ stated intentions to support Microsoft RemoteFX. You can read Max’s post on the RDS blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

Today, I am very happy to confirm that the following hardware and software companies, among others, have engaged with us as RemoteFX partners with the goal to build a formidable ecosystem of first-class user experience solutions: AMD, AppliedMicro, Citrix, Cloudium Systems, Dell, DevonIT, HP, Nvidia, Quest, Texas Instruments, ThinLinx, Via, Wondermedia and Wyse.

Several of these companies have already come forward with their own RemoteFX announcements last Friday, one day after Microsoft RemoteFX was born: We have seen statements of planned support for RemoteFX from AppliedMicro, Citrix, DevonIT, Quest, ThinLinx, Via and Wyse. AMD expressed excitement about our RemoteFX announcement in one of their blogs, and in a Network World article, HP announced future support for Microsoft RemoteFX to enhance the user multimedia experience for their thin clients.

Jeff Groudan from HP commented that Microsoft’s recent announcements are consistent with HP’s ongoing efforts to simplify client virtualization, from the desktop-to-the-datacenter. “Integrating Microsoft RemoteFX enables future WES-based HP thin clients to deliver a richer, local-like user experience for Microsoft session-based desktop and virtual desktop infrastructure customers. By leveraging the power of virtualized graphics and advanced codecs, remote workers will be able to access any type of application or screen content, including rich media and 3D applications.”

I feel with these great companies on board, RemoteFX is heading into an exciting future. For more information on these RemoteFX partner companies, visit our RDS partner page.
