RES Virtual Desktop Extender
Making Virtual Environments a Reality for More Workers
Reverse seamless technology by RES Virtual Desktop Extender (VDX) provides a simple, cost-effective way to introduce Bring Your Own PC (BYOPC) models, increase VDI adoption and separate personal desktop environments from corporate environments.
RES VDX enables users to access and run their personal and local apps seamlessly from within their virtual desktop, as if they were centralized. This makes desktop environments such as VDI or RDS more viable for a larger group of users within organizations. Because apps that end users rely on are merged into a single desktop, users no longer need to switch between sessions. RES VDX allows IT to increase user productivity in virtual environments, enhancing the worker's overall desktop experience. Read the RES VDX product brochure.
RES VDX Features
Reverse Seamless Apps
Apps that are difficult or impossible to execute on a virtual or central desktop can now be launched and used from within a user’s remote desktop session.
File Type Redirection
Ensure a local client app is launched when a specific file is opened from the central desktop session. For example, if a user clicks on a .DXF file the locally installed AutoCAD app will automatically open.
Invoke Local Screensaver
Avoid unnecessary resource use in central desktop environments by launching the local client screen saver.
Extensive Protocol Support
Extend the central desktop environment through remote session protocol virtual channels. RES VDX supports seamless integration with Citrix XenApp, Citrix XenDesktop (ICA and HDX), Microsoft Remote Desktop Services (RDP and RemoteFX) and VMWare Horizon View (PCoIP).
Access to Local Start Menu and Desktop
Users can access the local client start menu, including the local desktop and notification area, with a single click.
Extend VDX with Context-aware Workspace Management
RES VDX integrates with RES One Workspace to add capabilities such as context awareness, granular VDX behavior control and improved personalization for a better user experience.
