Intel has released a new version of Cloud Hypervisor, an Open Source virtual machine monitor (VMM) that runs on KVM. This new release includes support for vhost-user-blk backends. This allows users to plug av host-user based block device (for example, SPDK) to be connected to the hypervisor as a back-end of paravirtualized storage.
UDS Enterprise 2.1 incorporates, among many other new features, a full support of Citrix XenServer 7.1 and 7.2.
The UDS Enterprise development team has worked to enable users of our VDI connection broker to enjoy the enhancements built into Citrix’s new Open Source hypervisor versions, such as snapshots, Proxy authentication, and better Scalability of XenCenter.
We’re back to school and to start the week we’re compiling the most read articles in our blog during the summer. The comparison between Microsoft‘s and VMware‘s hypervisors, the deployment of an Open Source desktop virtualization infrastructure with oVirt* and the list of the top 2015 Open Source software have been the most popular posts.
Find below the links to these articles so that you can keep up to date with the most outstanding topics related to VDI and Open Source according to our followers:
UDS Enterprise integrates with multiple Windows and Linux service providers, such as the main hypervisors in the market.
This multiplatform connection broker enables the administration and deployment of virtual desktops, physical desktops, applications and other desktop services with Citrix XenServer, Microsoft Hyper-V, Nutanix Acropolis, RHEV KVM, oVirt KVM, VMware vSphere…
UDS Enterprise not only allows to use one or several hypervisors at a time, but also makes it very easy to migrate from one to another.
