Trend Micro Virtual Desktop Support Parent topic

Optimize virtual desktop protection by using Trend Micro Virtual Desktop Support. This feature regulates tasks on OfficeScan clients residing in a single virtual server.
Running multiple desktops on a single server and performing on-demand scan or component updates consume significant amount of system resources. Use this feature to prohibit clients from running scans or updating components at the same time.
For example, if a VMware vCenter server has three virtual desktops running OfficeScan clients, OfficeScan can initiate Scan Now and deploy updates simultaneously to all three clients. Virtual Desktop Support recognizes that the clients are on the same physical server. Virtual Desktop Support allows a task to run on the first client and postpones the same task on the other two clients until the first client finishes the task.
Virtual Desktop Support can be used on the following platforms:
  • VMware vCenter™ (VMware View™)
  • Citrix™ XenServer™ (Citrix XenDesktop™)
  • Microsoft Hyper-V™ Server
For more details on these platforms, refer to the VMware View, Citrix XenDesktop or Microsoft Hyper-V websites.
Use the OfficeScan VDI Pre-Scan Template Generation Tool to optimize on-demand scan or remove GUIDs from base or golden images.
