How to deploy a VDI platform with Microsoft Hyper-V

by | Mar 23, 2015

In this post we are going to describe how to deploy a VDI infrastructure with Microsoft Hyper-V and our VDI connection broker for Windows and Linux UDS Enterprise. The process of integrating UDS Enterprise with Microsoft Hyper-V is a simple task since its components are offered in Virtual Appliance format. Through a simple process, the UDS Enterprise components are hosted on the Microsoft Hyper-V platform on which the virtual desktops are going to be deployed. Once the components have been stored, it is necessary to interconnect all of them between each other as well as with the Microsoft Hyper-V virtual platform.

Having completed these initial steps, UDS Enterprise is capable of administering and managing the virtual desktops that are deployed on Microsoft Hyper-V, which are available for the users.

UDS Enterprise automatically manages the user station lifecycle without requiring the Microsoft System Center, making it a completely autonomous system, avoiding the need of additional licenses.

Thanks to the ability of UDS Enterprise to deploy virtual desktops on multiple hypervisors through the integration with Microsoft Hyper-V, a virtual desktop management and administration solution that is unique on the market is achieved. Find below the main characteristics that we can find in a UDS Enterprise with Hyper-V solution:

-UDS Enterprise is compatible with Microsoft’s proprietary Hyper-V differential disks for deploying template-based virtual desktops, which permits saving a significant amount of disk space, while simultaneously achieving efficient desktop management.

-Management of the virtual desktop lifecycle.

-Automated deployment of virtual desktops on Microsoft Hyper-V.

-Memory management in services, with the ability to dynamically assign memory to the different services regardless of the base template configuration.

All of these functionalities and compatibilities have been implemented so that they are managed from UDS Enterprise, without requiring intervention from the Microsoft System Center, resulting in a considerable cost savings, as purchasing additional licenses is not necessary.

UDS Enterprise with Microsoft Hyper-V is a robust, efficient and ideal solution for managing virtual desktop platforms for any type of environment, maintaining all of the characteristics of the hypervisor chosen for your platform.

VDI: The most secure environment for hybrid working

Today is Data Privacy Day. The purpose of this date is to raise awareness and promote privacy and data protection best practices. It was initiated by the European Commission, the Council of Europe, and the Data Protection authorities of the European Union’s member states. Their main goal was to drive attention to the importance of privacy, user data protection, and compliance of the General Data Protection Regulation (RGPD). It is a regulation characterized by significant fines for non-compliance since its implementation in 2018.

How to avoid issues with virtual machines

Virtualization comes with a wide range of benefits for organizations. It helps cut IT costs and reduces downtime while increasing efficiency and productivity. It also increases the resiliency of networks, primarily when disasters occur, and promotes more green-friendly operations.

However, using virtual machines also comes with a set of downsides. Information security may get compromised, workloads mixed up, separation duties lost, among other issues. It is vital to know how you can get over these problems, and that’s what this article will discuss.
