The Leostream Connection Broker provides the centralized connection management layer you need to deliver computing resources to your end-user community. No matter if your users need dedicated hardware or virtual machines, Linux or Windows, the Leostream Connection Broker helps you ensure that the proper resources are always accessible.
With Leostream, you can tackle some of your most challenging hosted desktops needs, including:
Hosted Desktop Infrastructures (HDI)
A hosted desktop infrastructure (HDI) removes the virtual requirement from a hosted desktop solution, relying instead on dedicated hardware in the datacenter for each user. Leostream manages hosted desktops running on HP Moonshot Systems, workstations and blades. Using HDI, you can provide end users with the performance they need while securing their data in the data center.
Linux Workstations and VDI
The Leostream Connection Broker is the only vendor-independent connection broker to support Linux operating systems in the datacenter. Using Leostream, you can manage Windows and Linux desktops side-by-side, providing users with access to whichever, or both, they need using the display protocol that’s best for their application.
Support Rich, Flexible Protocols
Leostream supports over ten display protocols, including protocols tailored for systems running graphic-intense applications. Leverage the performance of Teradici PCoIP, HP RGS, or Exceed onDemand to provide each user with the best performance for their application.
Openstack VDI and Desktops-as-a-Service
OpenStack software is increasingly being used to control large pools of compute, storage, and networking resources throughout a datacenter. Why not use it for VDI, as well? All you need is Leostream and a display protocol, and OpenStack becomes a solution that allows organizations and MSPs to host virtual desktops with ease.
HP SAM Replacement
The Leostream Connection Broker provides the core functionality available in HP Session Allocation Manager (SAM) along with an arsenal of additional pooling, policy, management, and reporting capabilities. Leostream helps organizations transition from HP SAM and provides a single management console for blades, virtual machines, remote desktop services, and XenApp application delivery, as well as a seamless platform for transitioning between solutions.
The enterprise datacenter is constantly shifting, as new technologies enter the market and employees become increasingly mobile. IT needs the flexibility to tackle these changes, while providing end users with the computing resources, applications, and performance they need.
