Windows and/or Linux Application delivery
Ulteo's Open Virtual Desktop delivers applications that are hosted on Linux servers or via Windows Terminal Services to any Java-enabled web browser, to any desktop (Windows, MacOS, Linux, thin client), anywhere (WAN-enable).
Windows applications are served from Windows Server 2003 or 2008 servers.
The provided “base” set of Linux applications include the OpenOffice productivity suite, Firefox web browser, Thunderbird email client, Pidgin instant messaging client, and more. Thousands of additional Linux applications may be installed and deployed by the system administrator.
End-user Web Interface
Applications are delivered to users by way of:
* A user-friendly desktop – Users log into a full-featured desktop to access applications “published” by the administrator, or
* Through a web-portal – The application portal provides a file manager for basic file system manipulation, and icons for launching applications in individual web browser windows
