Schools and institutions are under constant pressure to meet the numerable demands and challenges growing rapidly for the faculty and students using school resources. They are supposed to have well equipped teaching rooms and labs but face budget issues in maintaining and providing infrastructure. Power consumption by traditional desktop computers with the need for space and IT staff involved in every task of administration and maintenance are the biggest challenges faced by them.
Establishing numerous PCs with the modest endowment, fixing PC errors and updating software upgrades and refreshing cycles periodically puts in heavy workload for school IT department and administration team. These challenges pave way for utilizing and implementing a more efficient and cost saving computing solution.
SUNDE desktop virtualization technology transforms the traditional PCs to SUNDE zero client devices with more efficiency and business continuity. It renders Diana zero clients that are small and simple, with no moving parts, memory, and hard drive. Diana zero clients run on virtual desktops that are created and managed centrally from the data center.
SUNDE desktop virtualizationtechnology provides savings on time, money and energy. The upfront cost is reduced when SUNDE zero clients are deployed to replace the expensive individual PCs.Since they have no moving parts, they consume less energy than the traditional PCs. They use only 5 watts when active and less than 0.2 watts when fully active in sleep mode thus saving more than 97% of energy. They shrink the refreshing cycle of traditional computers thus saving time and money involving in the process. Also a greener solution is provided by reducing the air conditioned rooms and labs because zero clients release much less heat when compared to PCs. By running centralized virtual desktops, SUNDE still enables a workstation to be setup in minutes and a whole lab in hours compared to days or weeks for using PCs. It also eliminates time consuming software updates and maintenance tasks, PC failures and downtime, streamlines management and improves security.
Many schools have deployed or are now in the process of rolling out a new desktop setup using SUNDE technology and will introduce more SUNDE zero clients into student and staff facilities to achieve optimum benefits from the new infrastructure.
