OpenStack offers a feasible alternative to running desktops on dedicated hardware in the datacenter, and presents an attractive option for organizations and MSPs wanting the flexibility and cost control inherent in open source software. Keys to successfully delivering desktops is choosing an adequate workspaces platform that delivers an outstanding user experience from multiple end-points and a connection broker.
Both the Leostream Connection Broker and the Teradici Pervasive Computing Platform install seamlessly into an OpenStack environment in order to build, deliver, and manage a virtual desktop infrastructure in OpenStack clouds. Throughout the webinar, Karen Gondoly, COO of Leostream will cover what makes OpenStack an ideal platform for VDI and share tips on managing desktop usage in order to optimize resources. Srikanth Gopalaswami, Senior Product Manager of Teradici will offer insight on how to ensure a high-performance end-user experience and mobile accessibility, without compromising security.
