zero clients with microsoft vdi




    i need to implement VDI Microsoft solution - no citrix - with zero clients

    is it possible and what are the recommended brands

    i already did Microsoft VDI with thin clients but not with zero clients

    as far as i know we must have the remote app and desktop connections to make it work

  • zero clients are thin clients - there has to be an OS that the client boots to form the basis for connecting to an RDP session (regardless if it is RDP or ICA).

    If your zero client is enabled through PXE booting, you must deliver a basic OS and RDP client to then connect to the VDI session using the RDP protocol. 

    If you are talking the embedded chipsets that have support for RDP, PcoIP, or ICA then you need to specifically check wit hhte manufacturer as to how their particular implementation works, they are not generic.
