The IBM® Virtual Desktop with Virtual Enterprise Remote Desktop Environment (VERDE) from Virtual Bridges is a second-generation virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) environment. It addresses the issues of cost, complexity and coverage associated with existing virtual desktop implementations. It simplifies the implementation of Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS), enabling customers and service providers to securely extend their mobile strategies to include mission-critical applications in Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) environments.
The IBM Virtual Desktop powers the deployment of cost-effective, secure and scalable yet centrally managed Microsoft Windows and Linux virtual desktops. It delivers end-user mobility and supports business continuity while lowering IT costs. It is designed to provide an end-to-end desktop management solution spanning from virtual desktops to integrated offline virtual desktops (for disconnected and mobile use) to remote office virtual desktops. The IBM Virtual Desktop was designed to offer high availability and performance to PC desktops located anywhere in the enterprise.
This IBM Redpaper® publication introduces the IBM Virtual Desktop, its architecture and covers how to scale the product.
