Horizon View in the Branch Office Just Got “Officially” More Awesome

Several months back, I got up in this forum to talk about some good stuff for the branch office from our friends at Riverbed. As part of that discussion, I described a tech-preview of a VDI deployment architecture where the virtual desktops themselves are distributed to servers in the branch, while management stays centralized at the datacenter.  Well, today I’m excited to announce that we’re moving out of tech-preview and into full support of distributed branch architectures with partners like Riverbed, Ciscoand...

Hyper-V ActiveX RDP Control

The Dynamic Data Center Toolkit for Hosters project have just put up the sample code for a Hyper-V ActiveX RDP control, available here: http://code.msdn.microsoft.com/ddc/Release/ProjectReleases.aspx?ReleaseId=3833 What this allows you to do is to create a Remote Desktop connection directly to the virtual machine (not to the guest operating system) in exactly the same manner as when you are using the Virtual Machine Connection window in the Hyper-V Management Console. As this is an ActiveX control you can even use it in a web... [Lire la suite]
