VDI-in-a-Box

VDI in a Box is the ideal solution for rapid deployments of 30 to 1,000 users.

It is particularly well suited to departmental deployments and per class for education as it does not require the added complexity of multiple servers and software layers.

It delivers Server Hosted Virtual Desktops for simple environments that scale from SMB to Enterprise. This all in one solution can initially be implemented on a single or two server set up and then scale the grid upwards as user numbers increase.  It is a very efficient way to provision virtual desktops typically reducing the traditional infrastructure by half.

VDI-in-a-Box provides a single virtual appliance that is loaded onto the hypervisor of choice. This single virtual appliance provides all of the components required to support the VDI platform.

The VDI-In-A-Box manager appliance contains;

  • A controller/broker service Desktop Access
  • A Web Interface service for Portal Access and Web Services access
  • A License Service for Citrix Licensing
  • A Database Service for storing configuration and state information

This appliance does not require Windows instances or database licenses. For 5 or 5,000 users, there are no additional license costs for management of the solution. This results in a substantial saving on license costs.
