Qumranet Solid ICE Desktop Virtualization (VDI) Review


Qumranet’s Solid ICE aims to bring low-cost, hosted desktop virtualization to businesses via the KVM standard.

One of the most popular IT topics of late is virtualization. After all, virtual machines can help reduce the footprint of the data center and leverage processing power that would otherwise go unused. But the topic of virtualization has been rather one-sided, with everyone focusing on what the technology means to the server and the data center.

Qumranet is aiming to shift the conversation from the needs of the network to the needs of the user (and desktop administrator) with Solid ICE V4.1, a virtualization product based upon the KVM (Kernel-based Virtualization Machine) standard, which aims to virtualize desktop sessions.

In the simplest terms, Solid ICE offers remote PCs access to virtual desktops via a Web browser. The product is installed on a dedicated server running a Linux OS and then an administrator creates virtual PCs using the desktop operating systems and applications of his or her choice. Users then access those sessions via a compatible browser and have complete access to a virtual PC.
