BYOPC at One Tenth of the Cost of VDI
1E Workspace gives users their corporate desktop on the devices they want at one tenth the cost of VDI. By utilizing Oracle’s VirtualBox client-side hypervisor technologies, 1E Workspace provides a virtual PC that can be used just as effectively online or offline.
Improves Individual Productivity and Employee Satisfaction
Giving users their device of choice for personal and business computing is key to user satisfaction and the flexibility to work at home and when travelling contributes to greater levels of productivity. With 1E Workspace a user can be up and running in on their corporate desktop in as little as five minutes, delivering maximum productivity in the fastest possible time.
A Secure and Manageable BYOPC approach
1E Workspace mitigates the problems with BYOPC relating to security and compliance, software licensing and separating business data from personal information and applications. It allows organizations to make use of their existing security tools and policies and provide additional security features such remote disable and/or wipe of the Virtual PC. The Virtual PC is completely isolated from the underlying Host machine and can be killed remotely (via the internet), without affecting users’ personal data.
Utilize the Power of the Device Instead of the Data Center
Client Hypervisor technology allows users to take full advantage of the cheaper and high performing computing power, local storage and multimedia capabilities of their own device. While in theory VDI promises to reduce support costs with centralized image management and distribution, it places a heavy burden on already overstretched Data Centers and Networks.
Use 1E Workspace while it is still downloading
With FastBoot OS Streaming users can use their Virtual PC even while the large virtual machine images are still downloading. As soon as the image starts to download the Virtual PC begins to boot and can be ready to use in around five minutes.
Use Windows applications in their native OS
Microsoft Office works best within a Windows environment and many in-house developed and third party corporate applications are still Windows-based. 1E Workspace allows users to use these applications natively in Windows just as if they were using a standard PC.
Complete Security for Corporate Information
With remote lock and wipe (over the internet) and with the ability to implement standard corporate security tools and polices makes the use of BYOPC possible for organziations that would otherwise be unable to benefit from it. The risk of security breaches including malware incidents is minimized and regulatory and compliance requirements are met. When not in use, the Virtual PC is fully encrypted using the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) algorithm.
Integrates With Your Existing Microsoft System Center Infrastructure
Designed to fit as closely as possible with a System Center administrator’s normal activities, 1E Workspace does not require huge investments in a new infrastructure and allows Virtual PCs to be managed in the same way as physical PCs
Manage Software Licensing
The single image approach used to reduce the implementation cost of VDI can provide users with applications they neither need or use. These applications however, still require licensing and when combined with the cost of Microsoft VDA licensing creates a large, often hidden cost of VDI implementation.
