Fondo and GNS Systems form partnership

The partnership focuses on the optimal implementation of the engineering workplace of the future in the cloud as well as on-prem. GNS Systems as High-Performance Compute (HPC) integrator and Fondo as specialist for VMware desktop virtualization specifically address product development in companies in a virtualizes environment. The core benefit for simulation tasks: With a "Workplace as a Service", engineers are quickly and cost-effectively provided with a workstation tailored to the specific requirements and needs of virtual product development. GNS Systems brings many years of expertise in high-performance computing for CAE, data analytics, digital twins and machine learning to Fondo's smart solutions and services for virtual workplaces.


Christopher Woll, Managing Director of GNS Systems, is convinced of the joint strategy: "We are currently observing how the virtualization of work processes in engineering is rapidly accelerating. That makes it essential to set up the digital working environments as seamlessly as possible." The partnership with Fondo results in significant know-how synergies: GNS Systems has been on the market as a specialist for CAE IT for more than 20 years, most recently also with its own engineering cloud platform. Marijke Kasius, CEO of Fondo (acquired April 2023 by PQR, a Bechtle company), agrees: " With GNS Systems, we are gaining a strong, globally active partner who complements our market expertise in the field of computing in an optimal way. It enables a common, automated virtual environment for development engineers. Moving forward on this basis, we will be able to offer a simple engineering environment that provides and manages applications for engineers flexibly and quickly."

Fondo provides the powerful VMware Horizon and VMware Workspace ONE solution platform for the joint solution. With its services, GNS Systems ensures the seamless integration of the various solutions as well as the complete automation of simulation processes in mostly highly complex IT environments. A fully automated environment, tailored to the needs of development engineers, forms a solid platform that ensures smooth development processes and the continuity of business processes always based on them.
