Sphere 3D Corporation has entered into a strategic association with Corel Corporation. As part of the contract, Sphere 3D has been named a Value Added Reseller and Distributor for Corel Office and Corel PDF Fusion. Sphere 3D can now electronically issue the prize-winning office productivity software titles to end users. They can be distributed as a normal desktop version, as a Virtual Desktop Instance (VDI), or as mobile software releases powered by Sphere 3D’s Software Virtualization solution, Glassware 2.0.

In a statement, Nick Davies, executive vice president and general manager for graphics, digital media and productivity software at Corel, said, "This Value Added Reseller and Distributor Agreement with a globally recognized, award winning software brand is an important milestone in our plan to commercialize and promote adoption of Sphere 3D’s cloud based virtualization technology.
