The Challenge

Regulatory changes are forcing local Telecom companies and Managed Service Providers (MSP) to replace historical revenues. Fortunately, these organizations have existing billing, customer support and IT / connectivity infrastructure in place to service both new and existing business and government customers. Today, many businesses are seeking to leverage efficiencies and lower IT overhead by using outsourced IT solutions. Sphere 3D’s V3 System delivers the fastest, most flexible computing solution in the market that is specifically designed to drive new revenue from your existing users:

The Solution:

Sphere 3D’s role: how do we fit into the Managed Service Provider environment?

Our V3 Desktop Cloud Computing Appliances deliver 25 – 400 virtual Windows® desktops per unit, with guaranteed performance that is 2x – 8x faster than physical desktops. The drop-in server appliances elegantly integrate into an existing VMware infrastructure (whether at the customer site or the datacenter), providing the computing and local storage needed for hosting virtual desktops. We also offer V3’s Desktop Cloud Orchestrator software to simplify the creation, management and movement of dedicated virtual desktops, including policies for failover. This desktop management software aggregates key features that a desktop administrator would need from VMware’s vCenter and View into a centralized console.


What this means is that MSPs can choose how they want to deploy the solutions, with 3 flavours:

  • Hosted running from a MSP data center
  • On-Site where the appliance resides in a business customer data center
  • Hybrid with a combination of private/public networks and mix of on premise and hosted storage, appliances.
