Quality Virtual Desktop 3.1 Released

Open source VDI company releases next iteration of its flagship Linux based software

Oct. 8, 2012 - PRLog -- Quality Virtual Desktop (QVD) today released version 3.1 of its flagship VDI software. QVD 3.1 features a new containerizing technology, as well as improved disk management capabilities helping enterprises significantly reduce operational costs and decrease deployment time.

QVD is an open source container virtualization platform that enables provision of virtualized desktops from one or more network nodes. QVD 3.1 includes support for Linux Containers (LXC), achieving greater VM density per server than any other VDI solution on the market today, providing enterprises with a low footprint, high performance VDI solution.

LXC allows guest virtual machines to utilize the same kernel as the host, allowing greater scalability and better performance through the shared use of resources. QVD 3.1 continues to support KVM.

QVD 3.1 incorporates a new feature, known as Operating System Flavors (OSF), which allows an administrator to assign runtime parameters to the desktops they manage. This runtime data is stored separately to the disk images themselves, allowing administrators to create several distinct environments for their users without the overhead of storing and creating new desktop images for each desired scenario.

QVD is configured and controlled through a web administration interface and provides an equivalent command line tool. Fully open sourced, the code is obtainable from the website, theqvd.com, and packages are available for Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin, and SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 SP2.
