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 and RX-RDP thin clients as well as third party Windows or Linux embedded thin clients. Clientless access to VERDE is supported via any HTML5 compliant browser.

What installation options do I have with VERDE?

Wed, 03/21/2018 - 15:09 -- Phil Mason

VERDE 8.2 installation options include:

  • RPM packages compatible with CentOS 6.9 / 7.5
  • RPM packages compatible with CentOS 7.5 with GPU support (GPU support requires CentOS 7.5 or better)
  • VERDEOS ISO package built on CentOS 7.5 (burn to DVD)
  • VERDEOS IMG package build on CentOS 7.5 (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.

NComputing provides VERDE release notes, documentation for configuration sizing, installation planning, and detailed installation steps to help you get started.  A VERDE 8.2 administration guide is also available at the same time that describes how to create gold images, administer users and sessions. In addition to downloadable PDF documentation an online, searchable, version of these documents is available on our website.

LMU Munich have been happy VERDE VDI users for over 5 years. We find the cost, ease-of-use and enhanced security a very compelling advantage over other major VDI solution providers. We have tested the VERDE VDI 8.1 release and believe it is the best platform for the 2nd Wave of VDI that is building in the global market as a result of widespread enterprise migration to Windows 10.
