Why vSpace for Linux?
You have a room or office full of people who all need computers. You could buy them, but that’s expensive and boring, at least until they start having issues. Then they’re expensive and frustrating.
The smarter approach is to simplify what you deploy and save a bunch of time, money and effort, leveraging the open source Ubuntu desktop operating system which powers millions of PCs and laptops around the world.
It's Easy to Setup
So you buy a server and install vSpace for Linux. It’s replacing all those computers and hosts your virtualized desktops, probably in another room where you can’t see or hear it. You give each of your users a keyboard, mouse and monitor, then plug them into an NComputing access device like the RX300. Connect to your network via LAN or WIFI, and now each of your people have their own virtual computer with support running a supported Linux operating system. That’s it.
You'll Slash Costs
It’s quiet in here. That’s because there are no fans or hard drives spinning around, creating heat that your air conditioner then works hard at removing. You’re saving money on acquisition costs, energy, and on-going maintenance while reducing noise pollution. Did we mention the access devices are small and can mount to the back of your monitors? Genius.
Everything is Centrally Managed
Rejoice, the user data is on the server and easily backed-up. The applications and operating system are as well, so you are maintaining just one server instead of an army of computers. Your antivirus protection is now centralized to one system to help prevent malware, viruses and data theft. Provide IT with the peace of mind via the health monitoring service with real-time alerts. Updates to vSpace for Linux come with the firmware needed by the supported access devices, applied by a single button push. Use vSpace for Linux to centrally manage all of your NComputing access devices. Update the firmware to all of the devices with a single button push.
You'll be more productive
Inexpensive pieces with few moving parts mean less maintenance and attention required by IT, allowing your people to be more productive with less down-time. Centralized user session and device management empowers IT to spend more time on productive activities. The computing experience is the same if not better than having a full computer hiding under each desk. Now that’s how you Compute Smartly.
