NEW Version - vSpace Server 7.0 for Windows – Deployed by over 50,000 customers and used daily by over 20 million users, vSpace Server is NComputing’s virtualization software that resides on a stand-alone PC, a server, or within a virtual machine hosted in a datacenter; enabling IT to centralize and virtualize end user access and management of computing resources for desktops and applications. This latest release adds many new features including the ability to manage multiple vSpace Server environments from a single vSpace Management Center interface. vSpace Server 7.0 for Windows enables a richer user experience by incorporating significant performance improvements for USB-based peripherals and support for isochronous devices such as web-cams. In addition, this release includes direct access and management of secure smart cards used in conjunction with NComputing L Series- and M-Series thin client devices connected to vSpace Server 7.0 powered virtualization environments.
NEW Offering - vSpace Management Center 3.2.1 for vSpace Environments – For organizations deploying NComputing thin client devices connected to vSpace Server 7.0, vSpace Management Center delivers a highly scalable, flexible and easy to use single point of device management. A web-based console lets IT administrators manage L300 and M300 devices and vSpace Server 7.0 instances from anywhere, anytime, reducing the overhead needed to maintain and control an environment, regardless of the size, location or number of deployment sites.
NEW Offerings - vSpace Standard and Premium Software Support and Subscription Programs – Extending the basic one year support included in all NComputing products; new Standard and Premium support programs are now available for vSpace Server and vSpace Management Center. Each of the new packages offer enhanced levels of access to software upgrades and NComputing support. The Standard Support package provides access to software upgrades and unlimited email or phone support during local business hours. For customers with complex environments or who need NComputing support always on hand, the Premium Support package delivers regular software upgrades, enhanced response times, and access to NComputing support 24x7x365.
