At VMworld 2013 today, Unidesk announced the latest release of its virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) management software, used increasingly by Citrix XenDesktop® and VMware Horizon View™ customers to achieve deployment success. Organizations that try to implement virtual desktops with application virtualization, profile management, and image sharing tools often find that VDI is too hard to manage, or doesn’t work. technology">Desktop layering is the new, customer-proven approach. Unidesk 2.5, which is being demonstrated this week at VMworld booth 341, proves again why Unidesk is the standard-setter in desktop layering innovation.
“We initially looked at implementing non-persistent desktops and virtualizing our applications, but it just wasn’t feasible,” said
The Industry’s Leading Desktop Layering Technology Gets Better
Unidesk is unique in its ability to layer the entire desktop – operating system, applications, and user -- with one holistic solution and one simple, elegant management interface. Unidesk 2.5 provides many enhancements that further distance the industry’s only complete VDI provisioning and management platform from competitive products that only manage a single layer, or products designed for physical PC environments that are being retrofitted to VDI. All of the following new features are fully integrated with both VMware Horizon View and Citrix XenDesktop:
-- Driver flexibility.
Commented Kramer: “This added flexibility is critical. We have some apps that install low-level drivers into the OS, such as printer drivers for Adobe PDF. These drivers are now layered into the desktop and we don’t have to worry about where they are installed."
-- Deeper layering granularity and conflict resolution. Layering conflicts that can result from having printer drivers,
-- User layer conflict resolution and desktop repair. New repair functions enable administrators to automatically resolve conflicts between the User layer and IT-created Application layers without wiping out any user data. The Clear option in the desktop repair wizard enables Level 1 support staff to repair desktops by resetting user Data or Configuration to its initial cleared state. Resetting Configuration only will keep all Data intact.
