With a few simple clicks, itopia orchestrates the configuration of the entire deployment. Google Cloud environment: Network, Firewall, Compute, and Storage. Windows infrastructure: Active Directory, Group Policy Objects, RD Gateways, RD Brokers, RD Web, RD Licensing, RD Session Hosts, and File Servers.
itopia provides a single console for user access and group management. Assign user groups to collections with designated Windows apps and permissions, accessible across multiple regions.
Pair Windows apps with specified collections and control access to apps with trackable user counts. Store licenses and product keys in a secure enclave only accessible to the IT admin.
Create unique “pools” of VMs for different types of workloads. Collection Pools are fully customizable:
Auto-Scaling for quantity, size, and capacity of VMs. CPU, RAM, and storage resources. Custom images of OS and Apps. Multi-region accessibility with user connection settings such as Session Timeout.
itopia can automatically determine a user’s location and point them to the collection in the nearest region, ensuring the lowest latency.
Scheduled Uptime can start and stop individual VMs conveniently according to a preset schedule. Useful for shutting down unneeded compute resources on weekends or off-peak hours. Dynamic Uptime will intelligently start and stop VMs based on the number of active users in the collection pool. By keeping only the necessary number of VMs active, Dynamic Uptime can reduce compute costs significantly.
itopia provides a “copy & paste” solution to deploying images on new VMs. Once a VM has been configured with the desired OS, apps, and settings: itopia can replicate the image across additional VMs, either manually or via itopia’s Auto-Scaling.
Manage file shares from a centralized location. Define the folder structure and permissions, as well as assign mapped drives to users and groups: Windows File Server, Google Filestore (coming soon), NetApp Cloud Volumes Service (coming soon).
Capture full VM snapshots using preset schedules and version retention policies. Snapshots can be used to restore VMs to a prior point-in-time configuration, providing insulation from server-wide failures and yielding a powerful tool for disaster recovery.
Gather insights from itopia’s analytics dashboard to report on historical user behavior and compute activity. This provides monitoring on: session length per user, frequency of app usage and file access, as well as a breakdown of GCP costs.
