PALO ALTO, Calif. -- VMware today announced the acquisition of CloudVolumes, a leading provider of real-time application delivery technology that enables enterprises to easily deliver native applications to virtualized environments on-demand. Financial details of the transaction were not disclosed. The transaction is expected to be immaterial to VMware's financial results.

"Customers are looking to modernize their existing Windows application delivery architecture to be more like mobile IT," said Sumit Dhawan, senior vice president and general manager, Desktop Products, End-User Computing, VMware. "The combination of CloudVolumes and VMware Horizon will allow customers to build a real-time application delivery system that enables all applications to be centrally managed, always available and up-to-date, and delivered to virtualized environments for desktop, server or cloud on-demand."

With the continued consumerization of IT, companies have increasingly turned to desktop virtualization to provide employees with secure, anytime, anywhere access to desktops, applications and data. With the addition of CloudVolumes to the VMware End-User Computing portfolio, VMware Horizon 6 customers will be able to lower their desktop and application infrastructure and management costs while giving end-users a personalized experience.

This promises to change the game for desktop virtualization and addresses the application delivery and performance challenge. With real-time application delivery, personalized desktops and application environments can be created at a reduced infrastructure cost by using a single gold image for multiple users or groups. As a result, customers will no longer have to choose between cost and a personalized experience.

CloudVolumes will also enable VMware to build real-time application delivery across all three of its technology focus areas that include end-user computing, software-defined datacenter and hybrid cloud services.

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
