Simplifying Linux VDI - How to Deliver Linux Virtual Desktops on Demand

Watch the webinar recording!



It’s no secret that Linux has a loyal fan-base across the development community and industries such as government, engineering, and oil & gas. But, when it comes to VDI, the operating system often gets the short end of the stick.

How can you lower IT costs when applications run on a Linux operating system? How can you handle a mixture of Windows and Linux in a hosted environment? And, how do you ensure a seamless end-user experience, while maximizing resource usage and minimizing downtime?

The truth is, Linux VDI doesn’t have to be hard. You can create a virtual Linux environment that provides an efficient way to access hosted resources on centrally managed servers. By combining the Leostream Connection Broker with a high-performance protocol, managing a hosted Linux environment can be as simple, seamless, and powerful as a hosted Windows environment.

Watch this 45-minute presentation, product demonstration and Q&A as we discuss how to form a comprehensive VDI solution that can satisfy Linux users and deliver desktops on demand.
