VDI deployment with Edge Servers RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have SfB infrastructure with edge servers deployed...

    We have some remote office where SfB clients exists (WAN connection)
    We want to remove WAN connection and use VDI deployment for these users access

    I'll use printing solution like ThinPrint, triCerat or UniPrint.

    For voice, Microsoft doesn't Support W10 VDI deployments and they recommend Citrix solution.

    We want to use Microsoft VDI solution...

    I think we could use Microsof VDI solution to the rest applications (not SfB) and use our Edge Servers for SfB, not ???

  • Hi rivers,

    Thanks for your response.

    For SFB edge server, it is required component for external access. if you want external user use SFB (VDI), you need to deploy edge server. For internal user, it doesn't need to use edge server.

    If your VDI environment and SFB environment in different area, you need to use edge server

  • Hi Rivers 75,

    Can you give us more information about “I think we could use Microsof VDI solution to the rest applications (not SfB) and use our Edge Servers for SfB, not ???”, what is rest application?

    Based on my knowledge, you can use VDI deployment for users access. If you mean that you want to deploy Edge server with VDI, that is OK

    I will share a document for your reference

  • Users will connect by VDI to virtual machines and run corporative applications....and when they want to use SfB they will use edge servers...

    SfB VDI is not supported in Windows 10. Also Microsoft says "This plug-in is still supported, but no future updates are planned. For Citrix-based virtual environments, the Citrix RealTime Optimization Pack is recommended"

    So, the best option is not use it...

  • Hi Rivers,

    Thanks for your response.

    Yes, the Lync VDI plug-in was developed for Lync 2013 and is compatible with either the Lync 2013 or Skype for Business 2015 client running on a virtual desktop. It's a stand-alone application that installs on the local computer and allows the use of local audio and video devices with a client on a virtual desktop. The plug-in does not require a Skype for Business client to be installed on the local computer or thin client, which must run Windows 7, Windows 8, or Windows Server 2008 operating systems, it is not supported windows 10.  (Thin client devices using these operating systems and supported by Microsoft include: Dell Wyse Z90D7, Dell Wyse R90L7, Dell Wyse X90m7, HP t610 and HP t5740e.) This plug-in is still supported, but no future updates are planned. For Citrix-based virtual environments, the Citrix RealTime Optimization Pack is recommended.

    The corporative applications, if you mean the application like word and excel, you can use remote desktop connection to use them, but you want to use it on windows 10, like you said, the best option is not to use it
