End-users enjoy the responsive Windows and Linux desktop experiences enabled by CacheIO™ technology and the easy access to their virtual desktops.
Your business will benefit from the security advantages of keeping data securely inside the data center–with advanced security features such as the ability to limit access to virtual desktops to specific MAC addresses.
And your budget will benefit from our exclusive StorageOptimizer™ technology that can cut your storage costs in half. VERDE makes it easy to go from zero to VDI in no time.
VERDE TECHNOLOGIES AND CAPABILITIES
Automatically moves Gold Master images to the server’s local storage subsystem, which typically caches to server memory. This enables fast reads of the Gold Master in user sessions while eliminating the IOPS load on shared storage, thereby lowering storage-related costs and increasing performance.
GOLD MASTER IMAGES
Administrators reduce management significantly by creating Gold Master desktop images with the required OS and applications for each user segments. Users run read-only copies of the image with personal settings and documents written to a separate user disk.
SERVERS AND CLUSTERS
Built on open Linux standards, VERDE uses a highly scalable, Web 2.0 horizontal model in which each server is a standalone instance of the complete infrastructure.
Seamlessly integrates with LDAP-compliant directory services including Active Directory, Novell E-directory and OpenLDAP.
VERDE’s web-based monitoring console offers real-time visibility to all virtual desktop sessions running on VERDE cluster servers. Admins have flexibility to view virtual desktop sessions grouped by user or server, or based on type of gold image. The console also provides real-time server utilization metrics.
Ensure IT services are up and running for every employee, at every branch. Treat your branch office employees like those at headquarters by freeing them from slow, choppy and unreliable WAN connections. VERDE branch management technology reduces network bandwidth in many scenarios while providing business continuity even if the network is down. The branch server connects directly to the VERDE cluster and gold master image repository, providing a consistent, high-quality experience.
VERDE provides dynamic routing of user sessions to the optimal VERDE server through Distributed Connection Brokering. This brokering eliminates any single point of failure or choke point, allowing greater availability and scalability. The server-side hypervisor includes the VERDE hypervisor, based on KVM and optimized for desktop virtualization. Hardware-assist (VT) allows more desktops to run per CPU core while KSM (Kernel Shared Memory) improves memory density.
