11 The technology: Virtualization Landscape

12 ClassLink Client Virtualization How Client Virtualization works Applications are accessed from client Applications & data reside on Application Server Virtual Desktop Infrastructure Local Device Screen updates 1. The application runs remotely on a server. 2. On the server the graphic is captured, compressed, encrypted and sent to the local device. 3. On the thin client, the keyboard and mouse events are captured and transmitted to the server. Low bandwidth ICA/RDP protocols Keyboard & mouse events

13 Client Virtualization Landscape  Server Virtualization  Multiple vendor options  Client Virtualization  Terminal Server (SBC)  Multiple vendor options  Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI)  Multiple vendor options

20 “I remember it doesn’t work on wireless” It’s changed & better than ever ClassLink has 300 buildings and 300,000 users “tried it and couldn’t get any software to install” ClassLink tested 1,000+ titles including: KidPix, Adobe Creative Suite, AutoCAD & more “what about licensing” ClassLink includes a license metering solution “what about video?” ClassLink sites are using United Streaming “I thought you needed citrix” Not always Myths

21 The LaunchPad Difference Benefits of Client Virtualization Cost Reduction Energy savings with thin client computers Reuse existing equipment Existing staff can handle more Technical Central management Greater reliability Increased security Educational Consistent experience everywhere 24/7 access (home access = increased instructional time) Teachers love the collaboration tools Software and hardware usage reports guide purchasing

22 ClassLink experiences… Typical thin client experience in Ed No custom desktop No custom desktop Lots of printing issues Lots of printing issues No educational software expertise No educational software expertise ClassLink experience Management system designed for Ed Management system designed for Ed Theme based desktops associated to AD groups Theme based desktops associated to AD groups Education Expertise … over 1,000 tested Ed. applications Education Expertise … over 1,000 tested Ed. applications Credentialed trainers & experienced support Credentialed trainers & experienced support

25 Assessing the project

26 The Principal, Supt, Board keeps asking … “Is anyone really using the computers or software we bought?” What do I say?

27 They want to know… Who’s using what? From where? When? How long? Does it help learning???

28 ClassLink Inquiry™

29 Application Usage Standard & custom reports For teachers & administration Web Based Computer Usage Websites usage

30 ClassLink Inquiry What does it look like?
