“Nomad is a set it and forget it type of product. It has exceeded my expectations.”
After hearing about Nomad at a SCCM user group meeting, Mike Simms, Desktop Technologies Architect for TEVA Pharmaceuticals, wanted to learn more about Nomad’s server reduction capabilities. He was redesigning the SCCM 2012 architecture for TEVA Pharmaceuticals in North America and knew that reducing hardware and infrastructure could improve systems management in the environment and user experience across the network.
Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager typically requires a lot of servers distributed throughout the environment. 1E Nomad uses peer-to-peer technology to eliminate the need for over 98% of servers in a typical SCCM infrastructure. Regardless of how large or distributed your network is, Nomad will drastically reduce infrastructure cost and months of maintenance and administration each year. After adding Nomad into their SCCM environment, the TEVA team was able to eliminate several dozen Distribution Points while improving end-user experience.
This level of server reduction is only possible due to Nomad’s intelligent bandwidth management (we call it “Reverse QoS”), which enables content to be delivered across the WAN without slowing other traffic down. It constantly learns and adapts to conditions on the network, giving priority to all other traffic and ensuring that end-users are not effected by patching or application delivery. The goal of TEVA’s CM design was to eliminate end user disruption and Nomad has enabled that in the environment.
