Microsoft has stopped support for Windows XP—and soon third-party vendors will pull support for software that runs on XP. To stay functional and secure, you need to migrate to Windows 7 or 8. But how do you achieve that goal on a tight budget?
Older PCs have higher failure rates, and may not support the latest OS and applications you need. But even new PCs have labor intensive maintenance due to software updates, and malware and configuration issues. PC replacement is an opportunity to say goodbye to these issues by using thin clients and session based desktop virtualization.
Now that Microsoft has pulled the plug on Windows XP you must choose an alternative computing environment. Choose now or later, but choose wisely. In a Microsoft Windows environment, no solution does more to maximize the benefits of session virtualization than vSpace by NComputing.
Schools across the US are gearing up to support state mandated online testing. NComputing, the leader in thin client computing for K-12, manufactures the vSpace thin client solution for Windows that meets the requirements of both major US test consortiums (PARCC and SBAC) and has been certified as “TestNav Qualified”.
More and more educators advocate a 1:1 PC ratio at the classroom level to better teach and engage students. But costs for deploying traditional PCs include acquisition costs, maintenance hours, and power and cooling costs. In an effort to establish a future-proof IT platform, schools are turning to desktop virtualization to achieve 1:1 computing without straining existing resources or budgets.
Looking to take advantage of technologies such as Desktop Virtualization to reduce IT management costs, provide better security and improve application accessibility? Is mobility and use of multiple devices anytime, anywhere becoming increasingly important to you? This white paper focuses on the overall benefits of desktop virtualization, the differences between desktop virtualization architectures and how to choose the right type of architecture for an implementation.
IDC explains how virtual client projects can offer clear benefits for most organizations when properly understood, scoped, and implemented. In particular, solutions leveraging Virtual User Session software can offer the most compelling cost advantages, particularly for small and medium-sized businesses.
NComputing desktop virtualization is a modern take on the time-honored concept where multiple users share the processing power of a single computer. This approach has several advantages over the traditional PC model, including lower overall costs, better energy efficiency, and simplified administration.
This white paper sets out to answer the questions, "Why use a System-on-Chip to support virtual computing deployments?" and "How is the HDX System-on-Chip different?" Learn about the Citrix HDX System-on-Chip program, key criteria to consider when selecting an HDX Ready SoC thin client, and the underlying architecture and engineering of the Numo™ 3 System-on-Chip.
Desktop virtualization technology —what it is, what it does, how it works, and how it can be beneficial to businesses of all sizes as well as government and educational institutions from an overall cost and management perspective.
Providers require the ability to access applications quickly and easily to provide quality care and patients want the ability to access the internet for email, entertainment, news, and health care information. Desktop Virtualization delivers a computing solution that addresses the need of both the caregiver and the patient.
NComputing systems are a major leap forward in green computing. More than 15,000 organizations in over 80 countries have used NComputing to slash their carbon footprint and electric consumption.
IDC MarketScape Excerpt: Worldwide Client Virtualization Software 2013 Vendor Assessment
Over the past few years, NComputing has successfully evolved from a device-centric company whose virtualization software platform only supported its hardware end points to a software company with a client virtualization platform purpose built for simplicity, low cost, and minimal IT resource requirements.
