The support of the latest version of OpenNebula is framed within the philosophy of Virtual Cable, the company behind UDS Enterprise. Since its inception, they have been committed to delivering an open and flexible product, offering the freedom to choose the technologies that best suit the needs of each organization to build customized virtualization and remote access platforms. Following this line, they strive to make the necessary adjustments to the software and verify first-hand the optimal functioning of UDS Enterprise with the new versions of the multiple technologies it supports.
The compatibility with OpenNebula 6 allows IT infrastructure administrators with UDS Enterprise to leverage all the new features incorporated in this new release. This is the case of the new options related to edge computing technologies, developed in the context of the ONEedge project to implement distributed and on-demand edge cloud environments.
UDS Enterprise provides environments with OpenNebula with a myriad of advantages, which are beneficial for both administrators and users. Thanks to this VDI broker, users can access their resources 24×7, from anywhere and any device. Added to this is the management simplicity for all types of platforms. Whatever its complexity, with UDS Enterprise, its administration is simplified to the maximum. The entire infrastructure can be managed from a single console accessible through a web browser. The agility in the deployment and the unlimited and fast scalability capacity are other of its strengths, in addition to the possibility of incorporating at the same time all the virtualization platforms, authentication systems, connection protocols, and cloud services that are necessary.
Tens of thousands of users worldwide use virtual desktops managed and deployed with this robust joint solution daily. An example is the Université Catholique de Louvain. It has a VDI infrastructure with UDS Enterprise and OpenNebula sized for its around 37,000 students, 900 teachers, 750 researchers, and 1,500 administration and services employees. This prestigious university has been relying on this solution for many years. Thanks to the fact that they had it in place, they provided an efficient and safe remote working and eLearning system when the Covid-19 pandemic began. Not only do they have virtual desktops, but the versatility of UDS Enterprise has also helped them build a complete platform that combines virtualization of Windows and Linux desktops and applications.
