2 9 Components How It Works 2

3 VDI COMPONENTS Thin-Client, Browser Based, Smart Device Access Hypervisor Virtual Desktop Server Connection Broker Virtual Desktop Storage Remote Access Gateway Network Virtual Desktop Image Virtualized Applications 3

4 Thin-Client, Browser Based & Smart Device Access Thin Client a small office device that takes the place of a PC or laptop. Small enough to be mounted to the back of the monitor. Browser Based Access Java-based client that can be ran from a PC or laptop (regardless of Operating System) in order to access the VDI solution. Smart Device Access Software that enables a user to access the VDI solution from a smartphone, tablet, netbook, or similar personal computing device. 4

5 Hypervisor Server Software that Allows Virtualization 5

6 Virtual Desktop Server 20 to 100 Virtual Desktops per Server 6

7 Connection Broker Negotiates (Brokers) Virtual Desktop Services between VDI Servers and Clients 7

8 Virtual Desktop Storage Storage for the Desktop Software Components (Desktop Image) Not to be confused with Data Storage 8

9 Remote Access Gateway & Network Infrastructure Physical and Logical Network Services including: LAN WAN Firewalls Gateways 9

10 Virtual Desktop Image The Base Virtual Desktop Configuration Also known as the Golden Image Usually includes the standard applications like: Microsoft Office Suite Microsoft Internet Explorer 10

11 Virtualized Applications Applications that are Streamed, Hosted, or Extended to the Virtual Desktop Streamed Examples Adobe Acrobat Pro and MS Project Hosted Examples MS Visio and MS OCS Extended Examples OpenText Right FAX, McAfee USB Manager, and Roxio Image Creator 11

12 How It Works - Overview Client requests a Desktop from the Broker Broker Negotiates Virtual Connections Broker Delivers Virtual Desktop Image to the client Virtual Applications are streamed to the Desktop or hosted by the Virtual Server. The Virtual Desktop can be extended to the locally installed applications 12

13 How It Works Detailed Client requests a Desktop from the Broker If the Client is connecting via the Internet, it will need to pass through our firewalls & VDI Gateways 13

14 How It Works Detailed Broker Negotiates Virtual Connections Between Virtual Desktops and Virtual Servers The VDI Servers send the Virtual Desktop Images from the VDI Storage to the Clients via the Broker. 14

15 How It Works Detailed The VDI Servers talk with State Fund s Applications, Services, and Server on behalf of the clients via the virtual desktops. 15
