The most simple configuration of a flexVDI platform, looks like this:
When a flexVDI Client is started, it connects to the flexVDI Manager, to ask for instructions.Usually; usually, flexVDI Manager first requests the flexVDI Client for credentials to authenticate the user. But unauthenticated access can be configured too.
- Guests: the virtual machines that execute the desktops used by end-users.
- flexVDI Manager: this software runs on a separate virtual machine, executed on any of the flexVDI Hosts.
- flexVDI Agent: every flexVDI Host runs an instance of flexVDI Agent that controls its actions.
flexVDI Gateway usually runs on flexVDI Hosts too, although it is not needed in every deployment.
