Some days ago, we announced on our blog that it is now possible to deploy Windows 11 virtual desktops with UDS Enterprise , our connection broker for VDI, application virtualization and remote access to devices. Today we confirm our software’s compatibility with the latest version of another Microsoft technology, in this case, to manage and deliver both virtual desktops and virtualized applications to users: Windows Server 2022.
Thanks to the work of our development team, the stable version of the UDS Enterprise connection broker supports Windows 11; Microsoft’s latest update, which was released on October 5.
Application virtualization (vApp) is gaining ground in IT infrastructures from many organizations. To all the advantages of desktop virtualization (VDI), adds the simplicity of providing access only to the applications users need. UDS Enterprise is fully compatible with this technology. This popular software for VDI, vApp and remote access to physical and virtual machines allows centralized and automated deployment and management of Windows and Linux virtual applications.
To facilitate the implementation of this type of Windows solutions, the UDS Enterprise team has developed a complete manual that describes step by step how to deploy and configure a Windows virtual application platform with UDS Enterprise 3.0.
Microsoft is going to release a security patch through Windows Update next March which will disable certain authentication mechanisms via Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) in Active Directory (AD), including the one used by UDS Enterprise.
As of that date, UDS Enterprise will only work with authentication via LDAPS (LDAP over SSL). Therefore, all UDS Enterprise administrators using the Microsoft AD authenticator in their VDI and vApp deployments must enable “Secure LDAP” (LDAPS) on their Active Directory server or servers.
The UDS Enterprise team has published a complete video to guide all users, customers and partners when it comes to deploying their desktop virtualization platform with UDS Enterprise.
In a little more than half an hour, this tutorial exhaustively shows all the steps that need to be taken to install and configure all the necessary elements to deploy Windows and Linux virtual desktops with our VDI and vApp connection broker.
