The Leostream Connection Broker is a vendor-independent virtual appliance that runs on virtualization hosts such as those offered by VMware, Citrix, Microsoft, and Red Hat. It manages the connection of end users to their desktops and applications without sitting in the data path. IT administrators use the Leostream Connection Broker to establish access control rules that offer end users the correct resources, and connect users to those resources based on who the user is and where the log in.
Built from the ground up, Leostream Connection Broker provides everything System Administrators need to manage user connections to workstations, blades, VDI, and more.
The Connection Broker connects end users directly to physical and virtualized desktops, HP Moonshot Systems, Remote Desktop Services, and applications according to the user’s identity and the location of their client device. The Leostream Connection Broker integrates with an organization’s directory services, such as Microsoft® Active Directory® and Novell® eDirectory™, to authenticate users and map them to a Connection Broker policy. The policy, in turn, defines which resources the user may access, how they are connected, and how the Connection Broker manages the user's session.
