Reduce the Cost of Windows Migrations
The Operating System deployment facilities of Nomad 2012 allow organizations to supercharge their Windows 7/8 migration projects without any additional staff, extra servers or network infrastructure and achieve the highest possible amount of automation on client systems.
Eliminate Servers in Your System Center Infrastructure
Nomad is the only solution that actively removes the need for desk side visits and up to 95% of branch servers – removing your existing server footprint and administrative overhead without creating any risk to client systems, a competing infrastructure or a single point of failure.
Use All Your Network Spare Capacity With Reverse QoS™
Nomad applies deterministic and statistical analysis to your data transfers ensuring that IT data never competes with business data, regardless of network hops, line speeds or configurations. With Nomad 2012 more than three million PCs are being patched faster than ever before.
Download Once and Distribute Software in the Fastest Way Possible at Any Time
When you distribute large software packages to thousands of systems, this can equate to terabytes of data traversing the network. With Nomad 2012 even 20GB+ Windows 7 Migration packages can be distributed quickly without impacting day-to-day use of the network.
Remove Infrastructure, Increase Resilience
By eliminating server infrastructure and allowing client systems to dynamically manage content and other tasks normally assigned to servers, Nomad 2012 allows IT staff to focus on other activities and projects rather than constant infrastructure troubleshooting.
Nomad is the only solution where you can choose to Multicast or Fan-out data to systems while still adapting to user and network activity securely with no client risk. Nomad is also is the only solution which doesn’t scatter your data to several systems, instead it goes where your data is targeted.
Eliminate Hardware and Networking Dependencies
Nomad 2012 is the only solution that doesn’t have any networking hardware dependencies or require system level drivers that could cause a Blue Screen of Death.
Simplify the Network
The Single Site Download (SSD) feature of Nomad 2012 enables automatic discovery of network topology. This allows organizations to treat a large complex, distributed network as if it were a simple local one by grouping physical networks (including subnets) into logical sites and locations.
