  • Another connection broker provider is Ericom Software, with PowerTerm WebConnect DeskView. WebConnect supports over a dozen hypervisors. This flexibility helps organizations save money by allowing them to select the lowest cost hypervisor that meets their needs.

    WebConnect DeskView also includes Ericom Blaze, a software product that accelerates and compresses standard Microsoft RDP, so it speeds RDP while conserving bandwidth. Blaze accelerates RDP performance by as much as 25 times.

    • Virtual Desktop Infrastructure - Connection Broker
      CONNECTION BROKER
      Dedicated Desktop
      Pooled Desktop
      Connection Broker Providers
      Citrix with XenDesktop 5
      Microsoft with Remote Desktop Services (RDS)
      VMware with View 4.5

    • Virtual Desktop Infrastructure - Application Streaming & Virtualization
      APPLICATION STREAMING & VIRTUALIZATION
      Install application on server; execute on local machine.
      Advantages: installation, upgrade, roll-back, delivery speed, ease of application support (management).
      Application Virtualization Providers:
      Altiris/Symantec Workspace Virtualization
      Citrix Application Streaming
      Microsoft App-V
      VMware ThinApp
      4
    • Virtual Desktop Infrastructure -OS Provisioning
      OS PROVISIONING
      Single image on multiple workstations
      Advantages: upgrade or roll-back an OS quickly. When virtual desktops use OS provisioning, (valuable) storage is saved
      OS Provisioning Providers:
      Citrix Provisioning Server, part of the XenDesktop and XenApp family, DoubleTake Flex, Wanova Mirage and the VMware View Composer
      5
    • Virtual Desktop Infrastructure - Server-Hosted Virtual Desktop (VDI)
      SERVER-HOSTED VIRTUAL DESKTOP (VDI)
      Two kinds of VDI:
      server-hosted desktop
      With server-hosted, desktops no longer bound to a location. Client display is delivered via Microsoft RDP, Citrix ICA/HDX, Teradici/VMware ―PC-over-IP
      client-hosted desktop
      Server-Hosted VDI Providers:
      Microsoft, Citrix, Kaviza, Quest, Oracle/SUN and VMware
      6
    • Virtual Desktop Infrastructure –Server-Hosted VDI GPU Acceleration
      SERVER-HOSTED VIRTUAL DESKTOP WITH GPU ACCELERATION
      Rich Media Experience
      VDI with GPU Acceleration Providers:
      Citrix HDX 3DPro
      Microsoft RemoteFX
      Teradici
      HP RGS
      7
    • REMOTE DESKTOP SERVICES (RDS)
      (Also known as Shared Remote Desktop)
      Every user has unique terminal server session that runs in the data center
      Programs execute centrally on terminal server versus locally on desktop
      desktop or application is location independent
      Low TCO
      Remote Desktop Services (RDP) Providers:
      Microsoft
      Citrix
      Quest
      Virtual Desktop Infrastructure – RDS (Terminal Server)
      8
    • CLIENT-SIDE DESKTOP VIRTUALIZATION (VDI).
      (Also known as Client Hosted Virtual Desktop)
      virtual machines run locally on the client device
      Advantages:
      hypervisor ensures that each virtual machine is hardware-independent
      simultaneously use a number of virtual machines at the same workstation
      Two types of hypervisors:
      bare-metal client - Citrix XenClient bare-metal hypervisor
      client-hosted hypervisor - Microsoft Virtual PC and MED-V, VMware ACE and Fusion, VMware View Client with Local Mode and Sun VirtualBox
      Virtual Desktop Infrastructure – Client-Side Desktop Virtualization (VDI)
      9
    • Client Management Services
      Features:
      OS deployment
      Patch management
      Application and client deployment
      Asset management
      Service desk integration
      Remote control
      Client Management Providers: Altiris Deployment Solution, HP Configuration Manager, IBM/BigFix, Intel LANdesk Client Management, and Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM)
      Virtual Desktop Infrastructure – Client Management Services
      10
    • Virtual Desktop Infrastructure – Web Application Acceleration
      Web Application Acceleration
      Web Application Acceleration appliances accelerate and secure web-architected applications
      Web Application Accelerator Providers:
      Citrix Netscaler
      F5 BigIP
      Microsoft Desktop Optimized Pack (MDOP)
      11
    • Benefits of Application Virtualization – Citrix XenApp*
      Eliminate application conflicts and OS instability resulting from desktop application installation
      Reduce the costs associated with regression testing, deployment, maintenance, updates, and de-provisioning for applications running locally on users‘ machines
      Offer applications as an on-demand service
      Lower support costs by automatically updating and repairing applications every time they are used
      Speed regulatory compliance by eliminating the need for extensive testing to certify applications
      Enhance security by giving IT administrators complete control over applications delivered to desktops, even those of unmanaged partners and users
      * Citrix XenApp is included in Citrix XenDesktop Platinum
    • Benefits of Application Virtualization: Microsoft App-V
      Transforms apps into centrally-managed virtual services that are never conflict with other apps.
      Streams applications on-demand to any device.
      All applications are instantly available on any licensed device depending on user rights
      Standalone mode provides app caching on the local client for offline usage
      App usage & license metering are managed centrally
      Patch or upgrade once to the server
      Fully integrates with SCCM
    • Diagram: MS App-V Application Virtualization
    • Cisco’s Unified Computing System (UCS)Benefits
      Higher Availability
      Less Infrastructure
      Unified LAN/SAN Fabric based on FCoE 10GigE
      Less Management
      Faster Application Deployment
      Lower Operating Expenses
      Repurpose Physical & Virtual Servers without Service Disruption
