Reducing VDI complexity with HP Moonshot and Login AM

Reducing VDI complexity with HP Moonshot and Login AM

In the past few years, there have been many innovations in the system and application virtualization arena. Even though these innovations solve many of the daily application management challenges in the data center, they also introduced new and costly ones. The HP Moonshot system is a refreshingly simple concept. Small dedicated computer cartridges provide computing power from the data center to end users in a one-to-one relation. Each computer cartridge packs their own CPU, graphics card, networking and storage to deliver an optimal end-user experience.

A VDI solution based on HP Moonshot (called HDI) does not use virtual machines running on a hypervisor. In one big swoop, the HP Moonshot system reduces complexity by removing the need for shared storage and the need for shared graphics processors. End user performance is guaranteed and consistent since they do not need to share the resources of a single host.

Not having a hypervisor also means that some of the benefits like cloning are not available. HP Moonshot administrators need to fall back to (tried and tested) provisioning solutions that are focused on physical computer systems.

What does Login AM add to the mix?     

The HP Moonshot system provides technology to provision the hardware and operating systems but it doesn't provide any means to deploy software. This is where Login AM comes in.

With simplicity at its core, Login AM represents some of the same values as advocated by the HP Moonshot system. Login AM is a highly portable and easy to use system that automates the deployment and configuration of hosted desktop solutions and their end user applications.

Login AM is able to automate all the steps required to build hosted desktop solutions and publish applications to the end user. Like most other software deployment systems, Login AM is capable of deploying the software. Unlike most other systems, Login AM is also able to automate all steps that are required after deployment of the software:

  • Detailed application configuration and on-the-fly updates thereof;
  • Automatic creation of application authorization groups;
  • Application of security settings;
  • Automatic publication of applications.

Login AM Blueprint

Administrators can wrap an entire solution in a Login AM Blueprint. A blueprint contains all software and configuration settings needed for the creation of a new environment. It allows administrators to deploy an entire hosted desktop solution in a few easy steps. Imagine having your first users logging in only hours after installing the HP Moonshot system in the data center.

A powerful but simple and ready-to-go solution stack based on HP Moonshot and Login AM provides everything you need to deploy and manage a hosted desktop environment from your data center.

Feel free to contact us for more information about Login AM.
