UDS Enterprise 2.1 incorporates support for OpenStack Ocata. Until now, the UDS Enterprise VDI connection broker has been compatible with previous versions of this cloud orchestrator. The UDS Enterprise development team, faithful to its commitment to ensuring compatibility with the most current technologies, has made the appropriate adjustments in our software to make it work properly with OpenStack Ocata. Our team is already working to offer support for the latest stable version, baptized as Pike.
Thanks to this new development, administrators and users of UDS Enterprise can take advantage of the important improvements in management, scalability, and resilience introduced in OpenStack Ocata, among many other novelties.
The integration of these two solutions through an automated brokering system developed by the UDS Enterprise team gives the platform administrators numerous advantages, such as the ability to manage virtual desktops with OpenStack through the intuitive and simple interface of UDS Enterprise. This latter also allows the use of other cloud platform technologies, such as Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure.
The pairing of these two solutions also offers the possibility of automating, among other things, pools of large volumes, storage systems, network resources ... to provide users with remote desktop services, such as VDI or virtual application sessions.
The perfect integration and proper functioning of a joint solution have been validated by the OpenStack Foundation, which has certified our UDS Enterprise VDI connection broker as OpenStack Compatible.
In addition to OpenStack Ocata, UDS Enterprise 2.1 has incorporated support for new releases from other service providers, such as Citrix XenServer, Nutanix Acropolis, OpenNebula, oVirt, and VMware vSphere.
