Qumranet is an enterprise software company offering a virtual infrastructure platform to enable Independent Computing. Organizations use Qumranet’s first product, Solid ICE, to host Windows and Linux desktops centrally on servers in the data center, creating what Qumranet calls an Independent Computing Environment (ICE) for users. Solid ICE enables enterprises to host desktops in KVM virtual machines on servers in the corporate data center, and allows users to connect to them via a remote protocol called SPICE.
The benefits for IT include centralized provisioning, management, policy enforcement and compliance for desktops. In addition, due to the KVM and SPICE combination, Solid ICE delivers a superior end-user experience, especially with respect to graphics and multimedia. Solid ICE reduces desktop and laptop TCO by more than 50%. Qumranet is also the creator, maintainer and global sponsor of the KVM Open Source Hypervisor Project.
