Simplifying VDI Printer Management in VMware Environments
Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) allows organizations to centralize control over desktop deployment and minimize administration costs, while allowing users full access to their desktop applications. Managing printer drivers in virtual desktop environments with a remote workforce is a challenging task for any IT department.
UniPrint Infinity extends the benefits of VMware Horizon to printing, IT administrators need only to install one printer driver on the “master virtual desktop image,” regardless of the printer make or model, at home or at remote sites.

How it works
How it Works
UniPrint Inﬁnity can be installed in many types of IT architectures such as Client/Server, Print Server-based, VMware, Microsoft Azure, Microsoft failover cluster and High Availability printing architectures.
Also, along with universal print driver functionality, UniPrint Inﬁnity can also be set up for secure pull printing, mobile printing for iOS, Android and Chrome OS, print job statistics monitoring, automated print job archiving, compressed branch ofﬁce printing and Smart Route printing.
In the Print Server-based architecture, workstation and/or thin-client users print through their virtual desktop sessions to network printers. The following three components are required to be installed on two servers and on the master virtual desktop images: UniPrint Bridge with the License Server, UniPrint Print Server and UniPrint Application Server.
UniPrint Client is optional and is only required for those printing to client attached desktop printers.
