LeafOS is a new method of repurposing computers for use with a vSpace Pro deployment

Slow, ineffecient computers are a drag on your business. Users get frustrated, and productivity drops. Support for the native operating systems has lapsed, and your IT staff is constantly attending to their quirks. LEAF OS eliminates the headaches by converting the hardware from a stand-alone computer to a server-driven thin client running current operating systems and applications.

LEAF OS is based on Linux software developed specifically for vSpace Pro Enterprise, creating a secure computing platform that is simple to deploy and manage. Easily migrate from end-of-life operating systems like Windows 7 and give your users powerful desktops that just work

Cost

Save your money

Get out of the PC-refresh cycle and put off forced investment in new hardware until is makes sense for you.

 

Centralized management

Reduce maintenance & simplify

Push configurations and updates via a centralized management platform. All user data is stored on the server, making backups simple.

 

Secure

Securely built on Linux

The fully locked-down Linux platform is secure, protecting users against 3rd party applications and common threats.

 
 

Transparent USB Redirection

Expand USB capabilities

Using drivers on the server opens up extensive peripheral support capabilities for printers, touch screens, and other devices.

 

Dual monitor capability

Dual monitor support

If your computer has native dual monitor ports, use them both in a dual display setup.

 

WiFi

Virtualize with vSpace Pro

Add your older computers with LEAF OS to the vSpace Pro Enterprise environment and run alongside our thin- and sofware-clients, via WiFi or Ethernet.

CENTRALIZED MANAGEMENT & EXPRESS DEPLOYMENT

Computers running LEAF OS can be easily set up and configured to automatically receive updates from vSpace Pro Enterprise Edition servers. Define device settings, save as templates, and efficiently push out to connected devices. Manage one or hundreds of computers without physical interaction, keeping users up-to-date with the latest technology.

Alternatively, PMC Device Management Software provides a powerful solution to manage all your devices from a browser including LAN and WAN network deployments, locations behind firewalls and NAT-routers.
PMC Device Management is included with your LEAF OS license.

MULTIMEDIA ENHANCEMENT THROUGH NCOMPUTING VCAST STREAMING

Computers running LEAF OS feature the NComputing vCAST Streaming technology which reduces the overall server-side CPU usage for web videos like YouTube or local media content without the need for expensive GPUs. This allows for higher quality media streaming utilizing the network bandwidth without server CPU bottlenecks, thereby supporting more concurrent users per server.

Dual monitor support

DUAL MONITOR DISPLAY CAPABILITY

LEAF OS provides dual display support for PCs or laptops with secondary display output to provide added screen real estate for increased productivity.

BROAD USB PERIPHERAL SUPPORT

USB Support

LEAF OS driven computers utilize device drivers from the server to provide extensive peripheral support including mass storage, printers, scanners, smart card readers, headsets, speakers, webcams, signature pads, and COM ports.

Single-touch and multi-touch screens are also supported with a built-in calibration tool.

Licensing requirements for LEAF OS

LEAF OS is compatible with vSpace Pro Enterprise Edition (version 12.3 and above). You can download and try both for free.
