Just one month after the OpenStack Foundation released the latest version of its cloud orchestrator, UDS Enterprise customers can deploy a joint VDI solution with complete confidence and thus take advantage of the new features added to OpenStack Train. These include important improvements in security and data protection, advances for projects based on artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) and new capabilities for the management, monitoring and tracking of resources.
The optimal operation of the VDI broker with OpenStack is guaranteed and backed by the OpenStack Foundation, that granted the OpenStack Compatible certification to UDS Enterprise after checking the compatibility of both products to deploy desktop virtualization infrastructures.
The UDS Enterprise team has been committed for years to OpenStack as one of the multiple service providers available in the UDS administration for the management and deployment of virtual desktops and virtual application sessions. VirtualCable, the company behind the VDI broker, is in the list of supporting organizations that help in the development of this cloud orchestrator, as it contributed to this Open Source project by developing an automated brokering system for OpenStack.
In the latest version of the VDI broker, significant efforts were made to optimize and simplify integration with the different editions of OpenStack, incorporating two different connectors: one for Ocata and all later versions, including Train , and another for versions before Ocata.
With the joint UDS Enterprise and OpenStack solution, IT administrators have full freedom to enable multiple virtualization platforms, connection protocols and authentication systems to run simultaneously and provide flexibility to users of virtual desktops to access them at any time, from any place and device. All this with great simplicity of management and use both for the IT team and for desktop users.
