Why VERDE VDI™?
VERDE VDI provides the most secure, easy-to-use, enterprise-grade virtual desktop infrastructure. At a price that is considerably less than our competition, VERDE VDI offers three additional capabilities that separate it from the competition: we treat Windows and Linux clients as equal citizens, eliminate WAN latency by decentralizing VDI processing to the edge of your organization, and we span one’s end-user computing fabric from on-premise to cloud-hosted, or hybrid using our unique Cloud Branch technology.
VERDE VDI delivers enterprise-level features.
Desktop computing for business doesn't need to be complicated or expensive. VERDE VDI takes the sensibilities of enterprise-level virtualization and makes them available to small- and medium-sized business.
Windows and Linux
No WAN Latency
Our competitors continue to avoid reality and disregard the prevalence of Linux in mainstream corporations. VERDE VDI embraces Linux, providing a seamless environment for serving Linux desktops of all stripes and configurations, side-by-side with Windows.
But we go further than just serving up desktops. Lets say I have to do a compile job once a month, needing multiple cores to finish in a reasonable amount of time. I don’t have to have a beefy workstation sitting idly all month waiting for that job to call upon it. With VERDE VDI there can be an instance available to the engineer that can be called upon when needed.
Resources will be carved out of the existing pool to handle the job, and then returned to the pool when complete. Does that sound familiar? Sound like cloud? Well, yes.
VDI has a cloud-like architecture and allows organizations to reconfigure on the fly depending on the needs of the moment. In a Linux desktop user population – research, engineering, CAD, military, intelligence, etc., VDI is a huge advancement in flexibility, cost optimization and security.
VDI, as promoted by our competitors, has gotten a bad name from its inability to be successful outside of headquarters.
VERDE VDI has an innovative capability that uses caching and differential updates, among other techniques, to effectively “akamaize” VDI, cache it at the edge for easy, quick access, but without requiring any local management/administrator involvement.
The major benefits of this approach in addition to eliminating WAN latency, is business continuity – if the external network goes down, all the local apps will keep working without interruption. It also reduces network bandwidth as the applications are all communicating over the LAN and seldom need to go out over the WAN for normal desktop application usage.
Schools, campuses, branches, regional data centers, mission isolation, etc. all benefit from this architecture. VERDE VDI is a perfect solution for bringing the benefits of VDI to these user populations.
VERDE VDI, is an end-to-end virtual desktop infrastructure and management solution that combines VDI, offline VDI and VDI remote branch solutions to remove the management burden, complexity and cost traditionally associated with desktop virtualization solutions.
VERDE VDI offers unified management and reporting through a single console and is adaptable for today’s dynamic environment. Ideal for companies of all sizes, VERDE VDI can scale up to ten thousand clustered servers or scale down to a single-server configuration.
Through a combination of better hardware efficiencies, more attractive all-in-one pricing, the ability to optimize workloads between Windows and Linux, and incredibly easier management, VERDE VDI is by far the best ROI among the competition.
VERDE VDI has a long history as a preferred secure desktop platform with demanding users like the NSA, CIA CSEC and others. And for good reason. VERDE VDI is secure on a number of levels.
Being built organically from the ground up gives us a much more deterministic architecture as opposed to the cobbled-together monstrosities from our competitors, which not only make their solutions complicated and difficult to manage, but also introduces inherited code and architectures from smaller, acquired companies bought to plug the holes in their offerings.
VERDE VDI starts with a solid, secure Linux foundation. It then incorporates a dynamic provisioning model that makes users more impervious to malware by making unsanctioned changes non-persisting. We even go so far as to give admins the ability to set permission on USB devices by model and serial number.
If you identify only this make/model of drive authorized on this device, then any attempt to copy info to a non-authorized device will be blocked and logged. VDI in general offers tremendous security improvements over traditional desktops, but VERDE VDI takes this security to a whole new level with innovations we have developed over a long relationship with many demanding users.
AFFORDABLE ENTERPRISE-LEVEL FUNCTIONALITY
VERDE VDI is a purpose-built VDI solution for enterprise customers without the big price tag of other solutions.
Not only do you save on desktop management and end-user computing by virtualizing, we drop the cost of administration and user provisioning.

VERDE Remote Access
VERDE VDI: Overview
VERDE can be downloaded as a trial version but requires a per concurrent seat license for any connections past the initial trial. Contact NComputing or your local reseller to obtain an access key to obtain a copy of the VERDE software.
A VERDE VDI trial download can be obtained by filling out this form on the NComputing website. Based on this request, we will contact you with a download redemption key that use when you login to our management portal and go to the VERDE download page. VERDE comes with a 30-day / 10-seat trial license activated upon installation.
NComputing provides VERDE release notes, documentation for configuration sizing, installation planning, and detailed installation steps to help you get started. A VERDE administration guide is also available at the same time that describes how to create gold images, administer users and sessions.
Our extensive collection of Knowledge Base articles is another excellent source of information about VERDE and includes installation and performance tuning tips we have gleaned over the course of development and internal testing of VERDE. The KB articles are easily searchable from the support page of the NComputing website.
VERDE installation options include:
- RPM packages compatible with CentOS 7.9
- RPM packages compatible with CentOS 7.9 with GPU support (GPU support requires CentOS 7.9 or better)
- VERDEOS ISO package built on CentOS 7.9 (burn to DVD)
- VERDEOS IMG package build on CentOS 7.9 (save to USB stick)
The RPM packages provide a more flexible installation as you have more control of the OS packages installed beyond the minimum install of CentOS. This is the recommended installation package for production systems.
The VERDEOS package has an easier menu guided installation process with the limitation that the OS image may not contain all of the latest patches or device drivers needed or available on your hardware. This package is useful to help you get start quickly with a VERDE POC.
Installation assistance is also available directly from VERDE through a professional services engagement.
VERDE provides a downloadable software client application that allows any PC, Mac, or Linux desktop to connect and authenticate to a VERDE host system.
We also support the VERDE client tools on our RX300, RX-RDP, and EX500 thin clients as well LEAF OS devices and third party Windows or Linux embedded thin clients. Clientless access to VERDE is supported via any HTML5 compliant browser.
VERDE supports Windows and Linux based desktop OS’s as equal citizens and these desktop VMs can be run simultaneously in any VERDE based host system. Currently, we support Windows 7 (32-bit), 10 and 11 desktop implementations. Windows Server 2008, 2012r2, 2016, 2019 and 2022 are also supported when running in Desktop Experience Mode. For Linux desktops, we support Red Hat, Centos, Ubuntu, Mint and Linux Lite desktops as well.
VERDE is currently hosted on CentOS 7.9 servers.
You can see the full compatibility list here: VERDE Compatibility Matrix
Yes. We continue to release new versions of VERDE. Each version comes with many new enhancements that are beneficial to customers and bug fixes found in earlier versions of VERDE have been included in VERDE. Please refer to the latest VERDE release notes for a list of the most significant fixes and remaining known issues.
Upgrading to the latest version of VERDE now will ensure that any future point releases will always be the best supported version going forward
VERDE requires that the processor type is based on the X86 architecture. For installation of VERDE on a CentOS 7.9 system it is important to also check the Linux compatibility list for supported processor types. VERDE makes every effort to support new processor types with each new release of VERDE but cannot assure you that a new processor type made between VERDE releases can be supported.
For the virtual desktops, VERDE has the ability to emulate many different processor types depending on the supported processor architectures for the particular desktop OS being deployed. Again, checking the individual OS being virtualized you should always check the support matrix from the desktop vendor.
