Ever since Quest Software bought Provision Networks back in November 2007, Quest's vWorkspace product has been sort of a "distant third" behind Citrix and VMware in the desktop virtualization space. But why is this? In many ways vWorkspace is superior to both XenDesktop and View. So what's their problem? Mind share? Technology? Customers?
In this one-on-one interview, Brian Madden sat down with Quest vWorkspace's VP of Product Management Jon Rolls. Jon is sort of an "old school" Citrix guy who's been in our space for over ten years. We discussed where Quest vWorkspace is now and what the shortcomings are. We discussed what they're doing with regards to Microsoft, Citrix, and VMware. Jon also shared his thoughts on the future of desktops, the cloud, and how Quest can fit in.
