Octopus Platform: VDI 2.0

I came in contact with the people of e-BO yesterday. Their Octopus platform is truly amazing. In fact, this company already deployed VDI infrastructures years ago, when the term VDI did not even exist! Moreover, the whole concept is not even tied to VDI (hosted desktops), but can include other types of application/desktop provisioning as well.

Under the hood, an abstraction layer is created between the user front-end (thin or fat client) and the desktop/application provisioning backend. This layer makes it possible to do advanced things like: load-balancing, settings connection policies, secure channels, failover, etc.

Definitely worth a look!
