Microsoft Acquires Desktop Virtualization Software Startup FSLogix
November 19, 2018 / Joe Panettieri
Microsoft has acquired FSLogix, a Windows 10 and Office 365 virtualization software company that could simplify VDI (virtual desktop infrastructure) and Remote Desktop Session Host (RDSH). Financial terms were not disclosed. FSLogix’s software, the company claims, enables virtual desktop administrators to “massively reduce the number of Windows Gold images, easily manage per-user applications, optimize license costs while assuring compliance, and eliminate some of their biggest problems in VDI and RDSH.” Key FSLogix adopters include Cherry Health, Emory Healthcare, Equity Bank, Neovia Logistics and Okada, according to the software company’s website. Deployments typically range from less than 1,000 to over 50,000 users, the software company has previously indicated. FSLogix, based in Atlanta, Georgia, raised $7.5 million in Series C funding in March 2018, bringing total funding at the time to $12.5 million.
