RES reshapes its software range

Jazzes up its management tools

Dutch virtualisation management company RES Software is to offer its VDX (virtual desktop extender) as a standalone tool.

The product was part of the company's Workspace Manager product but is now being sold as an individual component due to customer demand said Bob Jannssen CTO of RES.

VDX allows organisations to enhance a virtual desktop with applications that run locally, meaning that users have no need to switch between multiple sessions. "One way that it's helpful," said Jannssen is if you bring your own PC into a corporate environment. It will help access local applications.

The company has also repackaged two existing products together into a three module suite called RES Automation manager - this will include a new feature called Service Orchestration. This module will allow organisations to set business rules to automate their service delivery needs and offer IT as a Service to end-users, for example, by establishing an IT service catalogue for end users. Once chosen and approved by a manager, the services will automatically be turned on, removing IT dependency and saving valuable time.

Both RES Automation Manager and VDX are, along with the company's Workspace Manager, part of the company's Dynamic Studio Desktop suite.

The company sees plenty of opportunities in the growing interest in desktop virtualisation. "RES is a strictly management company, we don't do the virtualisation ourselves," said Jannssen, "what we offer is a way to manage profiles, policies and scripting."

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
