Pano Logic Rolling in Dough, Talking Smack
These are heady days at VDI zero-client device maker Pano Logic, which has just landed $20 million in a Series C round of financing led by VC firm Mayfield Fund. Flush with money, Pano Logic openly published their hardware specs, and perhaps reeling just a bid with hubris, dared other vendors to remove the kimonos from their own alleged zero client solutions. Shockingly, none did, the cowards.
I like Pano Logic. They're cheeky, and even though they are still not showing up everywhere, it's certainly not because they haven't been out on the stump, shamelessly shilling for themselves.
Understand that we editors face a constant deluge of similar-sounding press releases, so when one from Pano Logic arrives on your electronic desk, you can look forward to rhetoric like "transformed the landscape of endpoint computing" and "demand for desktop virtualization is exploding and Pano Logic will become the chief beneficiary." One more: "Pano Logic joins a long list of groundbreaking technologies such as Compaq, SGI and Citrix that have revolutionized computing."
And, by the way, they claim to have tripled sales in 2009.
Are you buying or selling the Pano Logic story? Could their zero clients help your company? Let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
