SCVMM RDS Connection Broker plugin released

SCVMM RDV plug-in enables dynamic placement of VDI VMs for both personal and pooled VMs. The key benefit of using this plug-in is that it reduces the number of servers required since VMs are placed on demand rather than statically placed.  Dynamic placement is achieved by integrating SCVMM with the Connection Broker in Windows R2.

Dynamic Placement for Personal is available in Windows R2. Pooled requires Windows SP1.

Figure below shows the integration:

For those of you that don’t understand how this works Ill write a little process workflow so you understand.

1. The VDI client tries to connect to the last it was using via the Connection Broker.

2. The Broker, knowing where it was in the cluster, in communication with SCVMM, tries to wake the from a save state

3. Problem is that the its trying to start the on is already at capacity and it cant start there

4. SCVMM gets involved as part of this and moves the to another node in the cluster based on its dynamic placement algorithm, via a SAN move

5. The Connection Broker is then told which host the is now on and

6. The user connects to the

Nice huh Winking smile

Microsoft is going to be a real competitor against VMware
