VDI Server

The VERDE VDI server is one of many nodes in the cluster that serve virtual desktops to users. Users connect to the cluster using an entry point and a session point.

The entry point is any VDI server in the cluster. When a new connection starts, the VDI server automatically checks for either a matching persistent session (if one exists), or a recommended VDI server to host the new session. The VDI server communicates this information back to the client as a referral.

The session point is the referral’s IP address. Clients disconnect from the entry point and connect to the session point. Because connections are stateless, the session will have a reservation on the particular server that receives it. Users then authenticate against the configured repository and are either connected to an existing persistent session or given a new session.
