11 Chapter 2: Managing Leostream Cloud Desktops Chapter 2: Managing Leostream Cloud Desktops This chapter describes the different administrative features for managing desktops in the Leostream Cloud Desktops Web interface. Any Leostream Cloud Desktops account administrators has access to the features described in this chapter. You can create cloud desktops running either of the following operating systems. Windows Server 2008 (32-bit) Windows Server 2008 R2 (64-bit) Windows Server 2012 R2 (64-bit) All new Leostream Cloud Desktops include the following applications. All standard applications available on a Windows Server operating system Microsoft Internet Explorer 9 Web browser Google Chrome Web browser Adobe Flash Player 10 Adobe ReaderX Leostream offers persistent and pooled desktops. Each user in your account can have any number and combination of persistent and pooled desktops. Persistent desktops belong to a particular user. All changes made to the desktop and all data stored on the desktop persist when the desktop is rebooted. Only the associated user and the Leostream Cloud Desktops account administrators have permission to log into a persistent desktop. See Creating Persistent Desktops for information on giving users a persistent desktop. Pooled desktops are single-use desktops that are available to any user with access to the pool. Pooled desktops are created on demand from a master image, with options to have running spares in the pool, and are deleted when the user is finished with the desktop. See Building a Desktop Pool and Assigning Users to Desktop Pools for information on defining a desktop pool and giving users access to the pool. Creating Persistent Desktops You can add any number of desktops to your Leostream Cloud Desktops account. To add desktops: 1. Sign into your administrator account on the Leostream Cloud Desktops Sign In page. 2. Go to the Desktops tab. 3. Click the New Desktop button below the name of the user who will use the desktop, as shown in the following figure. 11

12 Leostream Cloud Desktops 4. In the Add a desktop form that opens, enter a name for the new desktop in the Name field. 5. Use the Performance drop-down menu to select the required memory and processing power. By default, this drop-down menu contains the following options. Standard desktop: Includes 613 MB of memory and consistent, but potentially throttled CPU resources. These desktops are recommended for running non-cpu intensive applications, such as word processing. A Standard desktop is created from an AWS t1.micro instance. Premium desktop: Includes 1.7 GB of memory and consistent, non-throttled CPU resources. Leostream recommends Premium desktop when running graphic or processorintensive applications. A Premium desktop is created from an AWS m1.small instance. Super Premium desktop: Includes 3.75 GB of memory and double the processor power of a Premium desktop. A Super Premium desktop is created from an AWS m1.medium instance. To create desktops from large or extra-large AWS instance types, you must enable the Enable selection of all AWS machine sizes option on the Account settings page. See Creating Large or Extra-Large Cloud Desktop Instancesfor more information. See for information on the different per-hour costs associated with the different instance sizes. 6. From the Cloud drop-down menu, select the cloud region for the new desktop. For best performance, ensure that you select the cloud region closest to your physical location. You cannot move a desktop from one cloud region to another after the desktop has been created. Ensure that you initially create the desktop in the cloud closest to your users to optimize performance. 7. From the Image drop-down menu, select the image you want to deploy as a desktop in the selected cloud region. By default, this menu contains three images, a Windows Server bit operating system, a Windows Server 2008 R2 64-bit operating system and a Windows Server 2012 R2 64-bit operating system. If you create custom images, they also appear in this drop-down menu. 8. Use the Availability zone drop-down menu to create the cloud desktop in a particular availability 12

13 Chapter 2: Managing Leostream Cloud Desktops zone. This option is available only if you enable the Enable selection of availability zone or VPC account option. If you want to use an Amazon EC2 Reserved Instance for your cloud desktop, you must place the desktop in the AWS Availability Zone associated with that Reserved Instance. See Using Reserved Instances for Desktops for information on enabling the feature to specify the desktop s Availability Zone. 9. From the Disk size drop-down menu, indicate how much disk space the desktop should have. You cannot add disk space after the desktop is created. Ensure that you have enough disk space to handle your required applications. Leostream Cloud Desktops use Elastic Block Storage. See for information on the cost associated with adding disk space to your cloud desktop. 10. Click Add to create the desktop. To return to the Desktops page without creating the desktop, click the x at the top-right of the form. The new desktop appears in the Desktops tab associated with its user, for example: For information on using the persistent desktop, see Connecting to Persistent Desktops. Building a Desktop Pool Pooled desktops allow you to offer users a one-time use desktop built from a customized master image. When a pooled desktop is powered down, Leostream automatically deletes the desktop, ensuring that no user data is retained in the cloud. To offer users a pooled desktop, your account must contain at least one master image. See Creating Master Images from Desktops for complete instructions. After you have a master image, you define your pool, as follows. 1. Sign into your administrator account on the Leostream Cloud Desktops Sign In page. 2. Go to the Pools page. 3. Click the New pool button, shown in the following figure. 13

14 Leostream Cloud Desktops 4. In the Pool form that opens, enter a name for the pool in the Name edit field. 5. From the Image drop-down menu, select the master image to use when creating all desktops in this pool. 6. Use the Performance drop-down menu to select the required memory and processing power. See Creating Persistent Desktops for a description of the different performance options. 7. From the Power plan drop-down menu, select an option power plan to associate with this pool. If no power plan is selected, the number of spare desktops specified for the pool are created and powered on as you save the form. In addition, the desktops in the pool are never automatically powered down. If you select a power plan, the number of spare desktops specified for the pool are created and powered on the days and Start at time specified in the power plan, and powered down at the Stop at time specified in the plan. 8. Enter the number of desktops to initialize in the pool in the Number of spare desktops in the pool edit field. If you select zero, pooled desktops are not created until a user accesses the pool, and users experience a delay while a new desktop is created and powered on. If you pre-populate the pool with spare desktops, users who access the pool are immediately connected to one of the existing desktops, and a new spare desktop is automatically created to refill the pool. 9. Specify a value in the Maximum number of desktops in the pool edit field to place a ceiling on the number of desktops that can be either in use or running as spares in this pool. If you leave this field empty, Leostream continues to spin up new spare desktops as users log into desktops in the pool, to maintain the value set in the Number of spare desktops in the pool edit field. 10. Select the Release desktops from the pool when used option if you want to convert the pooled desktop to a persistent desktop after the first user grabs the desktop from the pool. After the desktop is released from the pool, it will not be deleted when powered down. 11. If all new users will have access to desktops in this pool, select the Automatically assign a new user a desktop from this pool option to simply your setup. Selecting this option does not assign a pooled desktop to any existing users. 12. Click Add. If you entered a non-zero number of available, running desktops for the pool, the specified number of desktops is automatically created as soon as you save the pool. Spare desktops appear on the Desktops tab associated with a special System user, for example: 14

15 Chapter 2: Managing Leostream Cloud Desktops When a Leostream Cloud Desktops starts a pooled desktop, an available spare desktop is removed from the System user account and assigned to that user. After that occurs, a new spare desktop is automatically created to bring the number of available desktops back up to the limit set when the pool was created. The System user account is displayed only to account owners and administrators. Assigning Users to Desktop Pools After you create a desktop pool, you can give any number of users access to that pool, as follows. 1. Sign into your administrator account on the Leostream Cloud Desktops Sign In page. 2. Go to the Desktops tab. 3. Click the New Desktop button below the name of the user who needs access to a desktop in the pool. 4. In the Add a desktop form, enter a name for the pooled desktop. 5. Use the From a pool drop-down menu to indicate which pool to pull a desktop from or create a desktop in, in the event that no available desktop exists in the pool. After selecting a pool, the form appears as follows: 6. Click Add. A pooled desktop is assigned a Pool label in the user s desktop list, for example: For information on using a pooled desktop, see Connecting to Pooled Desktops. Creating Kiosk Desktops 15

16 Leostream Cloud Desktops For certain use cases, such as desktops for a classroom or hosted application, you may want a single user identity to log in simultaneously at multiple clients, for example, to use the address to log into unique Leostream Cloud Desktops at 20 terminals in a classroom. You can use the Leostream kiosk mode to support these use cases. To enable Kiosk mode: 1. Build a pool of desktops to offer in kiosk mode (see Building a Desktop Pool) 2.

21 Chapter 2: Managing Leostream Cloud Desktops Modify the desktop s operating system or any operating system properties Move the desktop to a new cloud region Install applications on the desktop Any modification to the desktop, such as installing applications, must be done by connecting to the desktop. Creating a Cloud Desktop File Server If your Leostream Cloud Desktop account manages desktops for multiple users, you may want to provide those users with shared cloud storage. Leostream Cloud Desktops file servers provide a private area for each of the users in your account, and a public area where all users can share files. A file server should be given an always-on power plan otherwise uses may not be able to access their mapped drives. You create a file server for your account, as follows. 1. Create a Leostream Cloud Desktop to use as the dedicated file server. See Creating New Desktops for complete instructions. To minimize data transfer costs, place the file server in the same AWS region as the cloud desktops that access it.

If you have multiple Leostream Cloud Desktops, the client automatically opens the Connect dialog where you can select which desktops to launch. If this option is not selected, after you log in to Leostream Connect, use the System Tray menu to connect to your desktops (see Connecting to and Disconnecting from Desktops). Save password: With this option selected, Leostream Connect stores your password for future sessions. If your password is stored, Leostream Connect does not prompt for your username or password when you log in to the client. If you need to change a stored address or password, deselect this option and restart Leostream Connect. Notify when new version of Leostream Connect is available: With this option selected, when you launch Leostream Connect, the client will query the Leostream Cloud Desktops Web page to determine if a new client version is available. If an update is available, the client prompts you to install the update. Configuring Exit Behavior Options on the General tab allow you to configure what happens when you exit Leostream Connect, as follows. Stop desktops if started on connect: With this option selected, upon exiting Leostream Connect, the client automatically logs you out of and powers down any desktops that were powered on when you launched Leostream Connect. The client does not power down desktops that were running before you launched Leostream Connect. Disconnect all desktops: With this option selected, exiting Leostream Connect automatically disconnects any connected desktops. Because your session is disconnected, instead of fully logged out, any applications that are open on your desktop remain running and are available the next time you connect to that desktop. Configuring Log Options To log Leostream Connect operations for debugging purposes: 62
