NoMachine joins VMware Technology Alliance Partner Program

Quoting from the NoMachine official announcement:

NoMachine, leading and award-winning provider of NX desktop virtualization software, announced it has joined the VMware Technology Alliance Partner (TAP) Program. This brings all the benefits of NoMachine NX software to the virtual suite of VMware, ensuring customers successful remote access to their virtual environments.

As a VMware technology partner, NoMachine will continue to enhance the ability of NX to work securely and successfully with VMware products. Beginning today, all NoMachine products are fully supported running in VMware virtual environments…

The fact that NoMachine joined the VMware TAPP is particularly interesting: the company provides remote desktop enhancements to Linux X Window System and already requalified itself as a desktop virtualization vendor (despite terminal services related technologies are usually referred as presentation virtualization).

It’s not hard to imagine the company releasing a VDI connection broker in the near timeframe.
