Application Delivery for Virtual Desktop Infrastructure

Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) also called application and desktop virtualization environments, allows anyone, (employees and contractors), anywhere (globally), anytime (24X7), from any device (PCs, MACs, desktops, tablets or smartphones), secure on-demand access to their specific set of applications and desktops, in the most efficient manner.

Get Started

  • Remote Desktop Services provides a way for users to gain access to Windows applications from any location

  • Citrix Virtual Desktop infrastructure (VDI) composed of XenApp and XenDesktop products

  • Dell provides desktop virtualization solutions for organizations of all sizes

  • VMware Horizon View is a virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) solution that simplifies administration

KEMP LoadMaster supports all of the above VDI environments and is a key factor in the efficient and cost-effective delivery of VDI.

While each vendor has specific key architectural components in order to implement application and desktop virtualization, common elements include - user devices sometimes with a thin/headless client, a gateway, front-end servers, back-end servers and a directory service. Some vendors consolidate multiple functions reducing the number of components through which traffic traverses. The thin/headless client functions as a beacon to allow connections between users and back-end servers. The gateway securely manages traffic to and from the user and the back-end servers. The front end servers, serve as an intermediary between the directory service, gateway and the back-end servers, resolving AAA and access to resources. The directory service provides AAA services. Finally, the back-end servers host the applications and desktops.
