Entering Virtual Enviroment - Questions
Just after a bit of advice really.
We're due to open a new remote soon and have a requirement for 5-20 PC's down in the new office, both sites will be connected via site to site VPN on our BT POP 10MB leased carrier.
We're currently exploring various avenues to achieve this and one of those is Thin Client / VDI's as we have an in house database system that would prove to intensive for our leased lines, so having the data computed on our backbone would save massive traffic between sites and free up our other services going between sites.
I'm currently "evaluating" VMWare View's product range. Have and ESXI server setup, resource pools and the assosciated management applications (VMWare Infrastructure Management, and VMWare View Server)
Will be evaluation XenServer / XenDesktop as well.
We are just trying to achieve or evaluate a situation where 5-15 Wyse terminals can connect to their respective desktops saved on either platform.
Could someone if possible point me in any directions for reading, applications needed and the likes. Still not quite sure what the role of the "Connection Broker" is, and why the terminals cant simply RDP into their respective VDI stored on the server.
