Leostream Announces Version 5 of Its Connection Broker


SAN FRANCISCO, CA — 09/10/07 — VM World Conference — At the VM World Conference running this week, Leostream Corp., a leading provider of Virtual Hosted Desktop software and physical-to-virtual conversion tools, today announced version 5 of its Connection Broker for the management of access to hosted desktops running in virtual machines. The Leostream Connection Broker dynamically assigns users to Hosted Desktops whether running on physical or virtual machines.

“Leostream has been building Connection Brokers for the last two years — starting with a 5,000 seat project for the US Patent and Trade Office,” said David Crosbie, Leostream CTO. “Using Connection Broker is extremely simple — simply enter your user credentials and you are automatically logged into the Windows session.”

Version 5.0 of Leostream’s Connection Broker was co-developed with a major financial institution that is using it as a key component in its move to Hosted Desktops with thin clients. This reduces the per user power consumption from 400W to around 100W and eliminates the need for UPS to the desktop as well as halving the amount of wiring in the building. These cost savings alone justify the project — particularly in major financial centers where there are acute power shortages.

The product is proven to scale globally to 30,000 users and eight datacenters. As well as being highly scalable it is also highly robust — and capable of providing uninterrupted service in a wide variety of disaster recovery scenarios.

From an Administrator’s perspective, Connection Broker v5’s Virtual Appliance architecture means that an initial deployment can be up and running in a couple of hours — while it has the depth of functionality to satisfy the largest of deployments.

Support for a wide range of remote viewer technologies — from Teradici’s PC over IP to VNC and RDP — enables Connection Broker to work across both Windows and Linux Hosted Desktops. Integration with third party SSL VPN hardware (Cisco, F5, and Juniper) ensures the same single sign-on experience from outside the firewall.

Users are given single sign-on access to their assigned desktops using Leostream Connect for Windows 2000, XP, and Vista; thin clients from Compumaster, Devon IT, IGEL, Neoware, and Wyse; or simply using a web browser.
