Leostream plays in the VDI space without being a VDI Company. They are all about unlocking the complexity of hybrid managed work.

In this episode I talk with Karen Gondoly. CEO at Leostream. Leostream is a driver in the evolving hybrid cloud space and a leader in the management of end-user resources hosted in the data center and cloud. The are the 'Ultimate Connection Broker' and evolved from the early days of Virtualization doing P2V and VMM management to now being 'The One Broker to Rule them All'! Karen and I talk about how their flagship Leostream platform provides a comprehensive and scalable solution for organizations to deliver and manage desktops, remote sessions, and applications hosted in a public cloud or a private data center. Leostream was founded in 2002 and is based in Waltham, Massachusetts.
