Servers and Clusters – VERDE servers authenticate and authorize user access to Gold Master Images based on corporate policy; sessions are then run directly from the servers.
Gold Master Images – Gold Master Image provisioning reduces management significantly. Administrators create only a few desktop images with the required operating system and applications that different classes of users need. Users then run a read-only copy of the Gold Master Image with all the personal settings and documents written to a separate user disk.
AD/Directory integration – Seamlessly integrates with Active Directory, Novell E-directory and other Directory Services for AAA.
Storage Optimizer – Works with Network Attached Storage (NAS) as an authoritative data store. And it scales by utilizing direct attached storage (DAS) on the VDI nodes for IOPS offloading.
Highlighted Capabilities Include:
- Completely stateless cluster servers increase scalability with Distributed Connection Brokering architecture
- Gold Master Image model ensures users are running the latest version, significantly reducing the number of images requiring management and providing native malware resistance to all desktop sessions
- Lightweight App Layering technology streamlines deployment of applications inside VERDE Gold Master Images
- Single console supports USB peripherals for online, offline and branch VDI users
