I’m looking for an infrastructure which ideally should be maintained as following:
Several (virtual) operating-systems (linux and windows as well) should run on a server simultaneously and be accessible over the local network from heterogeneous clients (such as linux, os x and windows operating systems running on a desktop computer).
The aim is that it doesn’t matter which client device in the local network you use, you can always connect and use these operating-systems on the server. It should also be possible to use on the client device two or three operating-systems from the server at the same time.
I investigated some time VMware ESXi / vSphere Hypervisor but I am anxious about the connection (the “remote desktop”) to these virtual-machines running on the server.
I am looking for a thin-client which can connect to these virtual-machines running on the server so that I can use this virtual-machine on the local computer. Does there exists something in general or is that only possible with RDP for windows and for example VNC for linux?
