Hi,

Right now in our 4.1 environment  we have  2 vmware  view 4.1 server for internal and external users and also using Leostream  for vsphere 4.1.

now planning to migrate  vdi environment to go on vsphere 5.1

Please Advice the difference b/w leostream(7.8) and vmware view(4.1) ?

Can users use both at same time ?

how to connect vdi using leostream and vmware view ?

any difference b/w both functionality ?

what if we only go with leosteram  7.8 there in vpshere 5.1 ?

 and prerequisite we have to follow with respect to licence /or any other upgrade required to migrate vdis on 5.1  ?

and my vdi environment is running with win xp and win 7 vms, so will that be ok to use win xp on 5.1  ?

Leostream is just a Connection Broker, which is vendor neutral, which is a piece of software that allows you to connect to virtual desktops hosted on a Hypervisor (e.g. VMware, Microsoft or Citrix).

VMware View, or VMware View Horizon, is a complete VDI solution, which also contains it's own Connection Broker.

You can use both at the same time, and you can use Leostream Connection Broker and integrate with VMware View 5.1.


Windows XP and WIndows 7 VMs (VDI desktops) can be used on VMware vSphere 5.1.

Hello,

Some of the main differences between Leostream and VMware focus on flexibility and scalability. As Andrew points out, Leostream is a vendor-agnostic so you can use it simultaneously with a number of different technologies, such as vSphere and View, as well as Hyper-V, XenServer, blades and public clouds.

>> how to connect vdi using leostream and vmware view ?

Can you expand on your VDI setup? For example, which protocol do you plan to use, PCoIP, RDP, or something else? Do you have Windows VMs, and/or Linux? Anything else you can tell us about your environment?

>> any difference b/w both functionality ?

Yes. Again, Leostream is much more flexible and scaleable. What Leostream functionality you need depends on your environment.

You can use both or a single product to reduce costs and licensing and complexity!
