Implement and configure AWS Backup for VMware Cloud on AWS VM workloads

In our previous post we saw the design of the AWS Backup on VMC. In this post we’re going through the implementation steps As per the design and best practice, we are going to use the ENI for the Backup traffic CREATE A VPC ENDPOINT  TO CREATE AN INTERFACE ENDPOINT FOR AN AWS SERVICE 1. Open the Amazon VPC console at    2. In the navigation pane, choose Endpoints 3. Choose Create endpoint 4. Name the endpoint   5. For Service category, choose AWS services 6.

For  Subnets , select one subnet per Availability Zone which we used for SDDC VMC selection  10. For Security group , sel

6.Building VDI using Remote Desktop Services (RDS)

To deploy personal virtual desktop or most of the time we called as "static virtual desktop deployment", you need to has
a) Active Directory Schema upgraded to Windows Server 2008.
b) Client virtual machine running Windows XP or Windows 7 need to use FQDN in Hyper V Manager snap-in.

Static Virtual Desktop is a 1 to 1 mapping. If you have 100 users, then you need to create 100 Virtual machine. User will access to their own unique virtual machine and have greater control. Besides that, changes on the Virtual machine will maintain in the Virtual Machine. This concept is similar as their own desktop environment.

Task 1: Personal Virtual Desktop Configuration.
1. Click on Configure virtual desktops on the top right of the Action pane.
