After testing other virtualization platforms we realized that they didn’t fully adapt to the quick response we expected from a desktop virtualization software. We wanted something simple, lightweight yet powerful, so we decided to create our own platform that provides an incredibly more agile desktop virtualization deployment, while also lowering costs and reducing implementation times.

A screenshot of IsardVDI. There's a left column with a menu, and the current activated tab is 'Desktops'. In the main section there's a table with different desktops, and there are two of them started: 'Windows 10 audio compress' and 'KDE Neon'. Also, there are two viewers opened (one for each started desktop) showing the 'content' of the VM
