Today we notice people using multiple devices for their computing needs from desktops to mobiles and tabs. Over the past few years, we had seen many changes in the processing powers of these devices including personal computers. The computing power of PCs had changed from single chip to multiple core processors with higher efficiencies. With increase in the dependency on computers, the need to maintain and troubleshoot has also increased. Unlike in olden days, now organizations are investing good amount of budgets for IT as it has become an important aspect in their businesses. Not only large organizations, even the small businesses are exploring new ways to manage their IT costs with limited budgets. One such approach is Desktop virtualization from N-computing where multiple users are supported by a single system platform.
What is N-computing?
N-computing is an optimized solution that works on the concept of virtualization of desktops where a single server supports multiple clients through an extended user interface protocol. The users will not even realize that they are connected to the same system as the resources are distributed in an optimized manner efficiently. To deliver better user performance at lower cost, N-computing has developed its own patented components – a virtualization software called vSpace, a Single-on-chip device that works as an access device and an User extension protocol that acts as a link between virtualization software and access devices.
Working of N-computing
- vSpace virtualization software
The software is developed by N-Computing to divide the computing resources efficiently, and deliver improved performance to the users that is better than a traditional personal computer. Irrespective of the operating systems, vSpace platforms integrates well with all devices and applications so that the user will have an experience of working on an individual dedicated PC. It acts as a centarlized resource where the users have the flexibility to access their work spaces using any virtual device from anywhere. It is an ideal platform for organizations or institutions which cannot afford high budgets and cannot handle the complexity of managing a dedicated IT department.
- User Extension protocol (UXP)
N-computing has designed its own User extension protocol (UXP) to enhance the remote end user experience and increase the system performance. Basically it acts as a link between vSpace virtual software and the access devices that connects through Ethernet or directly. Generally, when thin clients are used in virtualization, the picture quality will be very low when compared to normal PCs. However, N-computing supports all multimedia applications including flash, videos, and 3D graphics with good high quality resolution.
- Access Devices
We all know the design of the normal computer involve many processors and chips to run the operating system whereas Ncomputing access device has only one single chip which is designed to handle multiple processes. Here the entire functionality is incorporated into a chip called System-on-Chip (SoC) which delivers optimal performance when integrated with virtual software and extended protocol. Soc in the access device supports multiple number of user connections, is compatible with variety of client devices and consumes less power when compared to traditional PCs.
