TechTarget Launches SearchVirtualDesktop.com

Helps IT Professionals Make Informed Decisions during Evaluation and Purchase of Desktop Virtualization, Application Virtualization, and Virtual Desktop Infrastructure Technology

Needham, MA – February 16, 2009 – Information technology (IT) media company TechTarget, Inc. (NASDAQ: TTGT) today announced the launch of SearchVirtualDesktop.com™ to keep IT professionals well-informed and help them make the right purchase decisions for their specific organizations when they are evaluating and buying solutions for desktop virtualization, application virtualization and virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) technology.

SearchVirtualDesktop.com will be the first site dedicated exclusively to helping desktop architects, IT directors, IT managers and their staffs tasked with understanding desktop virtualization technologies from Microsoft, Citrix, VMware, and the many newer specialized companies that offer unique approaches to virtual desktop delivery. SearchVirtualDesktop.com delivers a single online point of information for best practices and business strategies that can lead to successful deployment of desktop virtualization.

SearchVirtualDesktop.com will offer unbiased news analysis, an essential tips library, learning guides, and white papers to provide the tools and tactics needed to make optimal technology purchase decisions. Because desktop virtualization involves more than just the desktop, SearchVirtualDesktop.com includes links to the most relevant server, networking, data center and security content from other TechTarget sites.

“The corporate desktop is strategic again, thanks to desktop virtualization and VDI. For the first time since personal computers (PCs) became the standard for end users, IT organizations have real decisions to make about the new ways to deliver end-user computing. Virtualization on the desktop changes everything and it’s new. IT teams need information to make informed purchase decisions. SearchVirtualDesktop.com provides that information,” said Jonathan Brown, Publisher of the Data Center and Virtualization Media Group.

SearchVirtualDesktop.com adds to TechTarget’s industry leading portfolio of virtualization coverage including SearchServerVirtualization.com™, SearchVMware.com™, BrianMadden.com™, BriForum® 2009 Conference, and free, live independent seminars on advanced virtualization and VDI.
