 +======Rhino e la virtualizzazione desktop======
 +> **Product:​** //​[[it:​zoo:​home|Zoo]]//​
 +> **Summary:​** //Discusses running Rhino for Windows on Desktop Virtualization servers.//
  
 +=====Question=====
 +Our school is using Microsoft [[http://​www.microsoft.com/​windows/​multipoint|Windows MultiPoint Server]]. Is Rhino compatible with this system? ​
 +
 +=====Answer=====
 +Technically,​ Rhino should run in [[https://​en.wikipedia.org/​wiki/​Desktop_virtualization|Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI)]] environments if installed as a standalone-node using an Educational Lab license. Single-user licenses should also work, but only for a single-user at a time.
 +
 +Rhino should also run in VDI environments if installed as a network-node,​ using a Zoo license server to distribute licenses.
 +
 +Rhino 4.0, however, will not run in VDI environments.
 +
 +That said, __we cannot make a recommendation__ on whether or not you should run Rhino in this manner, as we (McNeel) neither test nor use Rhino in a VDI environment.
 +
 +Rhino is a CPU, memory, and graphics-intensive application. Imagine logging onto your own computer 5, 10, 20 or even 30 times and trying to run Rhino in each logon session.
 +
 +Our customers have reported mixed results running Rhino in VDI environments. Some say that Rhino'​s performance is quite acceptable for an educational setting. Others have reported that Rhino'​s performance is inadequate for anything but the most basic operations. ​
 +
 +Clearly, your results will vary depending on the products and technologies your organization has chosen to implement.
 +
 +If you are considering running Rhino in a VDI environment,​ then you are going to want to perform some considerable testing to ensure that both performance and reliability are acceptable for your needs.
 +
 +When you finish your testing, please share your results with our [[tech@mcneel.com|technical support]] staff. We are interested in hearing about your experience.
