Lakeside Software, a leader in big data analytics for IT professionals, today announced integration agreements
with leading technology vendors Nutanix, Unidesk and World Wide Technology (WWT) whereby detailed reporting of
these vendors’ products will be available within SysTrack MarketPlace.
The Nutanix report delivers immediate insight into the Nutanix next-gen converged compute and storage
platform that delivers the best value for a particular customer workload. For the Unidesk report,
SysTrack thoroughly analyzes and identifies distinct software use cases and articulates how Unidesk’s
unique layering approach can simplify VDI image management and application delivery. For the WWT
report, SysTrack provides a summary of the metrics gathered and describes the infrastructure sizing
implications when you choose to enable your workforce with VDI.
SysTrack MarketPlace, announced in June 2012, provides detailed analysis for sizing and selecting
hardware, software and service infrastructure. MarketPlace provides a single source for IT professionals
to get the quantified data they need to maximize the performance of their infrastructure, accelerate
ROI and maximize end-user experience. MarketPlace is the result of cooperation between Lakeside
Software and leading IT infrastructure technology companies that includes AppSense, Atlantis Computing,
Cisco, Citrix, Dell Wyse, EMC, HP, IBM, Login VSI, Nexenta, Trend Micro and VMware.
MarketPlace reports are 100% customized for a specific vendor solution and provide only the data
most relevant for analysis of that solution. They are developed through close consultation between

Carrie Reynolds, director Sales, Lakeside Software:
“SysTrack MarketPlace is about providing actionable information and recommendations about
customers’ specific implementation. With the addition of informative reports for Nutanix,
Unidesk and WWT, SysTrack Marketplace provides IT professionals with even more information
to help them efficiently and effectively manage their environment.”
Howard Ting, vice president Marketing, Nutanix:
“Virtualization in the datacenter has suffered from overbearing complexity due to traditional
network-based storage such as SAN/NAS that limit scalability and performance while driving up cost.
Nutanix has delivered a next-generation converged storage and compute platform to allow for optimal
scalability and simplicity while dramatically lowering both capex and opex. The SysTrack MarketPlace
report delivers powerful data analysis, which ensures the Nutanix infrastructure is right-sized for
every organization's virtualization initiatives and helps our mutual customers achieve optimal IT
efficiency and ROI.”
Tom Rose, chief marketing officer, Unidesk:
“The management of applications and Windows® images is a big problem in VDI projects with user
and desktop diversity. With the MarketPlace for Unidesk report, IT managers can identify applications
that are ill-suited for application virtualization and are better delivered by Unidesk desktop layering
software. SysTrack highlights Unidesk’s cost-saving benefits of using one clean gold image for all
desktops, packaging heavily and lightly used apps as interoperable layers, and providing storage-efficient
persistent desktops that enable users to install and manage one-off apps on their own.”
Jason Diestelkamp, data center solutions architect, WWT:
“Jason Diestelkamp, data center solutions architect, WWT: “SysTrack MarketPlace has increased our
efficiency and value in delivering VDI assessments and ongoing VDI monitoring and management. This
capability allows us to generate a custom report for our customers that contains the essential data
to ensure our solution will meet the unique needs of each customer.”
