Abstract

Many enterprises migrate to a private cloud VDI environment. In such an environment multiple workstations are served by a single powerful server. On such an environment each VDI workstation receives only a limited CPU power. An average of less than a quarter of a core per planned VDI workstation is a common setup. Under such cases, anti-virus and application control software load is multiplied by the number of VDI workstation running on each server. These security applications take merely a few percentages of a single core on a normal desktop. However, on a VDI server where the multiple VDI workstations run on a single server, they may consume 20-25 percent the load. Naturally, such an increase is significant. We present an application control system that is extremely useful in a VDI environment.
