Virtualization Demand Lifts AppSense Bookings 54 Percent
AppSense, a virtualization specialist, says its booked orders increased 54 percent and revenues hit $71 million for its fiscal year ended June 30. The company also claims to have increased its headcount by 60 percent.
We’re digging for deeper details. In the meantime, the last time we heard from AppSense, Goldman Sachs had invested $70 million into the company — a financial sum that apparently helped AppSense to grow its headcount.
As part of its fiscal year ended June 30, AppSense opened a cloud and mobile research center in Santa Clara; hired Harry Labana as CTO in May; and opened new offices to serve EMEA (Europe, the Middle East and Africa).
AppSense has gained some traction in the channel by “decoupling” approach to user virtualization. Similar to VDI, AppSense’s offering enables users to retrieve their desktops from any Internet-connected machine, the company claims.
