DevonIT Moves UK Office to Support Worldwide Thin Client, Hosted Virtual Desktop Sales Growth

King of Prussia, PA – February X, 2010 – Devon IT, Inc., on 4th Feb 2010 announced it has moved into a new larger European headquarters in Birmingham, located at the Innovation Centre, 1 Devon Way, Longbridge B31 2TS UK, to meet growing demand for thin clients and hosted virtual desktops in the region.   

According to Gartner Inc., the worldwide hosted virtual desktop (HVD) market is expected to reach 49 million units by 2013, up from over 500,000 units in 2009. Worldwide HVD revenue is expected to grow from about $1.5 billion in 2009, which is less than one percent of the worldwide professional PC market, to $65.7 billion in 2013, equal to over 40% of the worldwide professional PC market. U.S.-based Devon IT works with over 100 European distributors and resellers, including TDIST, a leading provider of IT products to the value added reseller channel.    

“The European thin client market has always been larger than that of the United States, and our precipitous sales growth in the region sparked the need for expansion,” says Adrian Hedges, general manager of European operations for Devon IT. “We’ve seen an uptake in virtual desktop deployment worldwide, fueled by VMware’s View software, and tremendous interest in centrally managing desktops. Our Intel Atom processor-based TC5 thin client and thin client management software fit perfectly with virtualization software, and we are poised to increase our global presence in the booming virtual desktop market.”

“It is no secret that users are increasingly deploying virtualization and wireless technologies across Europe, and that this trend will continue indefinitely,” says Marketing Director for TDIST. “Companies like Devon IT have introduced advanced thin client hardware and software technologies to the marketplace and have destroyed performance and cost barriers formally prohibiting widespread adoption of hosted virtual desktops. We expect Devon IT to continue its exceptional growth into the European market, and are proud to expand revenue opportunities for resellers with Devon IT.”
