Can you do Linux with that VDI?
Linux VDI is a number of things, the most obvious thing is being able to use Linux based clients to access remote virtual desktops that could either be workstations that are fixed or re-purposed workstations that are just being used as thin clients.
It could even be an actual thin client that is Linux based, Praim Atomino with its VERDE optimised ThinOX is a very good example.
But that’s where most desktop virtualization vendors draw the line as to what they support for a Linux based VDI.
Virtual Bridges VERDE takes it all the way. We support Linux virtual desktops as first class citizens, running a Linux OS and applications, side by side with Windows XP and Windows 7 environments, all managed by the same VDI infrastructure.
Leo Reiter then talks about a number of use cases that become possible because of this technology and how it can avoid the Microsoft tax for cloud SaaS-based environments. We also cover a number of features such as USB redirection, seamless printing, single sign-on, and offline and branch access to your Linux desktop.
