Traditional Desktop Uses One Desktop Per User : School Initiative – One Laptop Per Child
Problems with traditional desktops in large organizations PCs Become Outdated Quickly High Cost for Acquisition & Refresh No Centralized Management High Cost of Support Uses Lots of Power Wasted Resources Security Risks
NComputing Revolutionized Computing with its PC Access Devices Over 2 Million Installed
The Most Innovative Educational Technology Since the PC Over 5,000 U.S. schools 7% of all new computing seats Hundreds of small & large districts
How It Works NComputing vSpace desktop virtualization software creates virtual independent desktops inside one Windows or Linux PC. NComputing User eXtension Protocol (UXP) delivers an efficient, secure, multimedia interface. NComputing access devices are small, silent, energy-efficient, reliable, and very inexpensive.
13 Operating System Enterprise App Operating System VMware virtualization VMware decouples software from hardware. First Things First: Virtualization
14 Run several operating systems on a single machine. Virtualization: Fundamentally Better Create shared pools of resources to optimize your infrastructure.

The Problems with Traditional SANs Traditional SANs – Previous Generation Controller Based Storage (arrays with cluster features) Controller Controller Units manage Reads/Writes of data as well as Controller Failover. Control units track where data is stored in the array, thus mimicking a clustered environment. The Control units have limited scalability. Traditional SANs also have a high acquisition cost, limited lifespan and a high replacement cost. In addition disaster recovery options are expensive and limited with traditional SANs Controller

What are Analysts Saying? True clustered storage systems are the next generation solutions that are designed to never be complex and to be perpetually optimal. —Enterprise Storage Group The age of the raid array is coming to an end… they will become much less common. The array business will see single-digit sales drops and general long-term stagnation. The storage cluster business will show robust growth. —StorageMojo Overall, given the price difference between FC-based and commodity-based systems (about ten times higher) and the experimental results we observe, we believe that commodity-based systems have a lot of potential in cost-sensitive environments and applications. —CoreGRID

How Does it Work? Intelligent Clustered SANs (ICS) – Next Generation ICS Clustering (leading edge) Each node is accessible to the initiator. All nodes act as a single unit. Drives are data “aware.” Data is automatically saved to multiple nodes creating an N+1 Configuration If one node or drive fails, the initiator is automatically directed to another node. Scalability is simple and nearly limitless. NO CUSTOMIZED HARDWARE. ICS architecture allows a supercomputing clustered file system to run on commodity Intel hardware. NO MASTER CONTROL UNIT. All nodes act as one unit in a single file system. NO DATA MIGRATION. ICS scales easily. Just add a node and data is striped and mirrored seamlessly. ADVANCED RAID. ICS has RAID-10 like features and automatically adjusts for disk or node failure.

What if you.. Could do more to ensure 100% application uptime? Could test applications in an isolated environment before deploying, or even purchasing them? Were never constrained by hardware again? Could add additional software packages on the fly? Could test your backup/restore operations before an actual outage or failure occurs? Could add additional services to your end users without the time, money, and hassle of new hardware acquisition? Could centrally deploy applications to your end user desktops? Had console access to all servers and desktops in your environment from one view? Never had to troubleshoot hardware issues again? We can do all of this and more for the cost of a desktop or a server refresh. The possibilities are limitless, but you will never know unless you take the first step..
