Release: Virtual Bridges VERDE 5

Virtual Bridges has made generally available version 5 of its Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) platform VERDE. This version is the follow up of version 4.2 which was released in August this year.

VERDE provides VDI connection brokers for KVM, and an offline VDI solution called Live Environment Access Format (LEAF), which is actually a lightweight Linux distribution featuring KVM.

New features in this version:

  • Updated Integrated Management Console – combines online, offline and branch VDI; facilitates granular role- and task-based provisioning; provides centralized visibility and reporting.
  • Support for Red Hat SPICE high-definition multimedia protocol.
  • SmartCast which provisions the appropriate protocol (SPICE or RDP) based on the user connection and type of desktop for a rich PC experience.
