What operating systems does VERDE support?

Mon, 11/19/2018 - 13:51 -- Phil Mason

VERDE supports Windows and Linux based desktop OSs as equal citizens and these desktop VMs can be run simultaneously in any VERDE based host system. Currently we support Windows 7, 8.1, and 10 as either 32-bit or 64-bit desktop implementations.  Windows Server 2008, 2012r2 and Server 2016 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 8.2 is currently hosted on Linux Red Hat/Centos version 6.9 and 7.5

Are there any restrictions on the processor types you can use to run VERDE?

Mon, 11/19/2018 - 13:51 -- Phil Mason

VERDE requires that the processor type is based on the X86 architecture. For installation of VERDE on a Red Hat/Centos 6 or 7 version OS 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.

What is LEAF/OS?

Mon, 11/19/2018 - 13:50 -- Phil Mason

VERDE Live Environment Access Format (LEAF/OS) is a set of Endpoint technologies used to transform the VDI experience.  For many companies assessing VDI, other solutions fall short on client support. With client desktops hosted on a server, traditional VDI solutions have failed to provide for legacy client hardware and / or repurposed clients with PXE capabilities for network boot. While using legacy hardware and when no software distribution is possible to client devices LEAF/OS provides a solution.
