Sphere 3D Signs Master Agreement with iPro to Deploy Virtualization Solutions to over 200 Healthcare Locations
iPro's network of healthcare clients are facing the need for enhanced patient record security, coupled with demands for anywhere, anytime access to patient data. The use of hyperconverged infrastructure to deliver virtual desktops and applications allows IT departments to keep information in the data center and off end user devices. This approach not only provides for greater data control and security, but improves clinical workflow, enhances accessibility to that workflow and reduces the cost of replacing dedicated workstations.
Sphere 3D Enables Application Migration to Support Microsoft Windows 10 Adoption
"Today's globally-distributed businesses with mobile workforces need IT solutions that deliver a flexible and secure environment while maintaining productivity, said Mark Bowker, Senior Analyst, Enterprise Strategy Group, Inc. "Sphere 3D's Glassware 2.0 Windows containerization technology allows the modernization and mobilization of applications without the need to invest in new applications development and infrastructure, which is commonly required when implementing traditional hypervisor-based virtualization solutions. Also, I believe the simplicity of its application virtualization methodology, along with the ease it provides for mobilizing legacy applications, makes the G-Series a game changer."
Sphere 3D Launches "LET'S GET SMART ON TECHNOLOGY" - Targeting Small and Medium Sized Businesses
"The U.S. Black Chambers understands the importance of secure application mobility and data protection to the SMB; however it has been a service out of reach for many of our members," said Ron Busby, Sr., president and CEO, U.S. Black Chambers. "This partnership with Sphere 3D is not only a commitment to our members, it is a commitment to the success of small businesses."

LISA Scientific Research Institution Selects Sphere 3D's SnapScale to Meet Rapid Data Growth Needs
SnapScale was chosen by LISA over other competitive solutions for the simplicity of deployment, the unique data protection architecture, and versatile scalability. Both scale-up and scale-out capabilities are supported for matching performance and storage capacity growth as needed. SnapScale provides the high availability that LISA required to tolerate multiple disk failures, or the failure of nodes, and through software refreshes without any disruption of service. SnapScale uses Sphere 3D's patented Peer Set protection technology that drastically reduces any service degradation caused by offline data reconstruction normally experienced with traditional scale-out solutions.
Sphere 3D's V3 Hyper-Converged Appliance Shows Leading Linear Scalability and Desktop Workload Performance
Sphere 3D used Login VSI v4.1 workloads to measure the response times of 100 simulated desktop users performing various workloads, including the most demanding workloads typical of "power workers" such as those that use many graphics-intensive applications. Sphere 3D's results showed consistent sub-second response times across all workloads.
Sphere 3D and Microsoft to Deliver Glassware 2.0 Windows Application Containers on Microsoft Azure
"When we created Glassware 2.0, we envisioned a time where any application, regardless of its hardware or operating dependencies, could be easily delivered across multiple platforms from the cloud," said Eric Kelly, CEO of Sphere 3D. "Today, by joining forces with Microsoft, we have taken a substantial step towards realizing that vision."
