Open Virtual Desktop (OVD) is an installable Open Source virtual desktop and application delivery solution, ideally suited for corporations, educational operations and small businesses alike. It allows IT departments to deliver desktops and applications easily and at a lower cost than other solutions. It can be integrated in both a Windows and Linux environment. OVD is perfectly suited to deliver concurrent seamless Windows and Linux applications, pushed to the OVD user via a unified desktop or an OVD based Portal.

Open Virtual Desktop delivers applications that are hosted on Linux servers or via Windows Terminal Services to any HTML5 enabled web browser, to any desktop (Windows, MacOS, Linux, Thin Client), anywhere (WAN-enabled).

Windows applications are served from Windows Server 2003 or 2008R2 / 2012R2 servers

Inuvika OVD can be customized to your needs, does not enforce up front license payments, and offers affordable subscription plans.

Scalability: OVD has been designed to serve applications to thousands of users at the same time. Comprehensive tests and tuning have been performed to ensure excellent Linux & Windows® application servers load handling and directory management up to 50,000 users and more. 

Security and Remote Access: Wan Internet & LAN accesses secured by SSL. WAN access has been simplified with the OVD Gateway module: One (1) IP address, one (1) port ... thousands of users.

Remote Administration: A full-featured administrator web console is provided for configuring server settings, managing users, publishing applications, and for monitoring servers. 

An easy to use wizard walks the administrator through the process of publishing applications. New applications may be conveniently installed from within the OVD administration console. 

The administration console also offers administration delegation so that specified users may administer the system.

Inuvika OVD is available as a license free Open Source Version and as a licensed subscription based Premium Version that includes professional support, consulting and some additional premium features. Users of the free Open Source Version can purchase "per incident/project" support. Please contact us for details.
