Leostream refines hybrid workflows with its 2022 platform release

Leostream, a provider of enterprise-grade remote access solutions, is releasing the next generation of its Leostream Platform—Leostream 2022—featuring numerous enhancements aiming to simplify IT while ensuring end-user productivity.

In addition to continuing the Leostream tradition of supporting enterprise workflows for hosted desktop environments, Leostream 2022 embraces themes of modernization and usability, with upgrades to the underlying operating systems and a redesign of the end-user facing portal, according to the vendor.

The Connection Broker, which was originally packaged as a virtual appliance, has been internally redesigned to run as an application with more restricted permissions. This redesign enables the deployment of the Leostream Connection Broker in environments, such as in DoD, that have stricter guidelines related to operating system maintenance and application access.

The Connection Broker and Leostream Gateway are now packaged for installation on any virtual or physical machine running the latest Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8.x operating system and its derivatives, such as Rocky Linux and AlmaLinux OS, allowing organizations to modernize and secure their infrastructure.

Leostream 2022 includes several other customer-requested features that enhance the integration with supported centers, display protocols and authentication servers, as well as features that enable even more flexibility when defining VDI workflows.

Enhancements include:

  • Additional dashboard charts that provide insight into resource usage, such as showing pool comparisons or the number of currently assigned desktops, so IT can easily monitor and adjust how their data center and cloud resources are being consumed.
  • An expanded Connection Broker command line interface (CLI), with new options to accept the Leostream EULA and automatically reboot the Connection Broker, if required. When used along with other Connection Broker CLI options and with the Leostream RESTful API, Leostream customers can script and automate Connection Broker deployments, in support of modern DevOps workflows.
  • Support for multiple SAML-based authentication servers in one Leostream environment, allowing organizations that leverage different identity providers across teams to consolidate those users into one environment, simplifying the overall architecture of their Leostream deployment.
  • Finally, the Leostream partnership with AWS continues to expand with the integration of NICE DCV into the Leostream feature to manage collaborative sessions. Leostream users connecting to hosted desktops using NICE DCV can now send and accept invitations to join other users’ sessions. In a modern, hybrid workplace, collaboration has proven to be a key requirement for user productivity and project success.

“We are excited to be releasing our latest version of the Leostream Platform to better allow customers the ability to support their corporate infrastructure, increase usability, and contain costs,” said Karen Gondoly, Leostream CEO. “The latest updates to Leostream allow IT to manage hybrid workflows more easily while modernizing their infrastructure to ensure the overall security of their Leostream environment and the desktops it manages. Our goal is to always offer the best experience possible, and we believe that Leostream 2022 does just that.”
