Program offers free desktop virtualization licenses

Virtual Bridges, Inc. today announced the launch of the Teacher’s Pet Program, an exclusive opportunity for K-12 school districts to receive complimentary desktop virtualization licenses. The program is designed to support educators facing severely reduced budgets by providing proven technology that eases desktop management, reduces labor costs, extends PC lifecycles and reduces security risks.

The Teacher’s Pet Program is open to K-12 organizations at accredited institutions in the United States. In addition to 50 free licenses of VERDE VDI Gen2, the program offers:

• Single server deployment

• Remote install and troubleshooting

• E-mail support 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. CT, Monday through Friday

• Annual maintenance of $2,000 for all 50 seats

• A 50 percent discount on additional licenses purchased within 60 days

“Across the board we’re looking for new and innovative ways to get more out of our existing technology investments,” said Michael Davis, Technology Director, Leakey Independent School District. “VDI Gen2 reduces desktop management costs, while providing our teachers and students an even better experience than they had before.”

VERDE eliminates the need to track, maintain, upgrade, repair and keep virus-free all desktop and notebook computers scattered across the district. It also allows teachers and students to securely access desktops regardless of whether they are in the class room, working from home or studying in the library.

The Teacher’s Pet program is running through June 30, 2011. To register for this program, visit To learn more about Virtual Bridges’ work with K-12 school districts, visit:
