With its app provisioning capabilities, FSLogix is able to reduce resources, labor and time required to support virtualization.

Both FSLogix and Microsoft are dedicated to providing the absolute best experience for companies choosing to deploy virtual desktops.” – Randy Cook, Founder and CTO, FSLogix, wrote in a blog post.
