This document defines a set of architectural blocks for building a multitenant, Virtual Desktop Infrastructure in and application services on the Cloudistics platform.
This document includes 2 major sections:

  • VDI Solution Architecture

The primary goal of this VDI architecture is to enable service providers and IT departments to create secure, scalable, and reliable desktop hosting solution offers for small- and medium-sized organizations ranging from 500 to 1,000 users. The intended audience is hosting providers, and IT departments who want to leverage the Cloudistics infrastructure services to deliver desktop hosting services to multiple tenants.
