Frequently Asked Questions

Is flexVDI free/open source?

flexVDI is licensed on a pay-per-user (concurrent user) basis. A monthly or yearly subscription is required. If you want to know more about pricing, please go to next question.

Only part of the flexVDI components are open source software (QEMU/KVM, libvirt, spice).

What can I do with flexVDI?

flexVDI is a virtualization platform designed specifically for Virtual Desktops. With flexVDI, users can access their desktops (Windows XP/7/8/10 and Server 2008/2012/2016, any type of Linux) from almost anywhere (we have clients for Windows, Mac, Linux, Android, IOS and some OSs for thin client). In addition, you can easily manage all aspects of your users’ workstations through a centralized interface, from security (access control, availability, accounts, …) to usability (local devices and printers, clipboard integration, screen resolution, …).

What can’t I do with flexVDI?

There are two main features that you may expect to find in flexVDI that we have not yet implemented.

The first of them is 3D hardware acceleration. The virtual graphics adapter provided by flexVDI is not yet capable of using hardware acceleration, but we are getting promising results in the development of this feature.

The second is application virtualization. flexVDI does not provide application virtualization in the way that other products like Microsoft App-V or Citrix XenApp do. Nevertheless, flexVDI can integrate both desktop and application virtualization, resulting in a simpler and more flexible template-based workstation system.

What infrastructure do I need to deploy flexVDI?

If you have chosen the Just flexVDI or Managed flexVDI modality, you will need one or more compute hosts and a storage space. We recommend Intel Xeon based servers and a shared storage cabinet with direct attach connection. Contact Us and we will help you to correctly size the infrastructure that you need for your business plan.
