Local Disk and
in RAM Storage
You can deploy virtual machines to local RAM or Disk storage pools for your stateless or persistent virtual desktops.
See real-time performance of a host or a guest machine including CPU, local storage, and memory usage, as well as Network or Storage IO.

You can go back 30 days to find the root cause of an issue or an alert.
Hive Fabric provides the ability to use a network target as an available Storage Pool within the host or cluster. Support includes for NFS, CIFS, Ceph (RBD), Amazon AWS, and Azure.

Desktop Pools create a set of identical virtual desktops, all using the same settings. They inherit the attributes of a guest profile and template.
An Application Pool allows a pool of VMs to dynamically scale based on CPU utilization across the pool. These pools auto-provision or remove VMs based on the threshold set for CPU consumption. Cluster Resource Scheduling ensures load balancing across the Fabric cluster.
Virtual Machine
VMs can be created outside of Desktop and Application Pools, commonly referred to as standalone VMs as they exist outside of the scope of a managed pool. Hive Fabric supports a variety of Operating Systems.

You can use GPU as a passthrough device and dedicate an entire physical GPU to a developer workstation or slice the memory of a GPU card into smaller chunks and add them to an individual machine or a pool.
Access to
Physical Desktops
For users that need to access machines in a remote office, HiveIO provides the ability to remotely log into the machines or servers with ease and as part of the same highly secure fabric.
(Available in full solution only)
Hyperconverged storage is easy to enable with Hive Fabric for clusters containing two or more hosts. You can create shared storage among hosts in the clusters. It is self-contained, secure, and highly available within the cluster, making it ideal for a variety of workloads.
(Available in full solution only)

Supports clustering multiple hosts together allowing for cross-server administration, resource load balancing and simple administration of a large number of hosts. Provides the ability to deploy nodes running different OS versions of Windows or Linux.
(Available in full solution only)
Cluster Resource
Ensures load balancing, and hosts from overloading - including distribution of Virtual Machines and optimal use of cluster resources. Algorithmically measures current system load over time and nominates guests as migration candidates.
(Available in full solution only)
Desktop Broker
Allows admins to enable secure remote access for their end-users using Two-factor authentication, Smart Card authentication, or RDP, with a customizable web interface.
