Why vSpace Pro 11?

You have a room or office full of people who all need computers. You could buy them, but that’s expensive and boring, at least until they start having issues. Then they’re expensive and frustrating.

The smarter approach is to simplify what you deploy and save a bunch of time, money and effort.

It's Easy to Setup

So you buy a server and install vSpace Pro. It’s replacing all those computers and hosts your virtualized desktops, probably in another room where you can’t see or hear it. You give each of your users a keyboard, mouse and monitor, then plug them into an NComputing access device like the RX300. Connect to your network via LAN or WIFI, and now each of your people have their own virtual computer. That’s it.

 

Cost

You'll Slash Costs

It’s quiet in here. That’s because there are no fans or hard drives spinning around, creating heat that your air conditioner then works hard at removing. You’re saving money on acquisition costs, energy, and maintenance while reducing noise pollution. Did we mention the access devices are small and can mount to the back of your monitors? Genius.

 

Centralized management

Everything is Centrally Managed

Rejoice, the user data is on the server and easily backed-up. The applications and operating system are as well, so you are maintaining just one server instead of an army of computers. Your antivirus protection is now centralized to one system to help prevent malware, viruses and data theft. Updates to vSpace Pro come with firmware for the access devices which are applied by a single button push. Genius.

 

Increased productivity

You'll be more productive

Inexpensive pieces with few moving parts mean less maintenance and attention required by IT, allowing your people to be more productive with less down-time. The computing experience is the same if not better than having a full computer hiding under each desk. Use the RX300 with adapter and you’ve got access to a second display. Now that’s how you Compute Smartly.

What does this virtual computer look like?

vSpace Pro supports 10 popular Windows™ Operating systems, including Windows 10 along with Windows Server 2016. If you use Windows, you’ll be right at home. Compatibility List

Access the Windows store, Windows desktop and applications like Cortana and the Edge Browser.

Windows 10

Thin clients

How do I access the virtual computer?

vSpace Pro supports L-series, MX-series, and our latest RX300 access device as well as some legacy products. You can even use a Windows computer you already own by installing vSpace Pro Client - a great solution for repurposing outdated computers that can’t keep up with today's computing requirements.

How difficult is managing all this?

vSpace Pro 11 comes with vSpace Console, software to centrally manage all your connected user sessions and access devices. We also provide a web-based management portal for anywhere-access to help you manage your hardware warranties, deployed assets, NComputing licenses, health monitoring and much more. It's all there.

Easy setup

What's new in vSpace Pro 11.2? We're glad you asked.

The core of vSpace Pro 11 doesn't have a laundry list of new features, but what it does have is significant. vSpace has always used UXP (User eXperience Protocol) to regulate information between the server and the access devices. While vSpace has grown over the years, this protocol has largely remained the same. It just worked.

In addition to UXP 2.0, vSpace Pro 11 brings back MultiView from vSpace 8 with additional session controls like Broadcasting & Block All, and Dual Monitor support is now native & doesn't require a separate license—add our Secondary Display Adapter (SDA) to the RX300, or fire up a dual monitor configuration with vSpace Pro Client for Windows.

UXP 2.0, Dual Monitors and MultiView

This release is all about making what worked well, work better. We optimized the protocol for speed and efficiency, reducing network traffic and increasing performance for all our access devices.

As an example, the L300 will see up to a 27% reduction in traffic, while RX300 and vSpace Pro Client for Windows will see as much as a 43% traffic reduction. If you are using vSpace 8 or 10, this update will make a noticeable difference.

vSpace Pro 11.2 opens the doors to programmable computers for educators and students.

In vSpace Pro 11.2 we added the ability to communicate directly with Arduino and BBC MicroBit programmable computers.

Now each user has their own environment for programming and writing to these platforms through the USB port on the thin client. Usually, this process would require dedicated PCs or Chromebooks with monthly per-user subscriptions.

 

Arduino

Arduino is an open-source electronics platform based on easy-to-use hardware and software. Arduino boards are able to read inputs - light on a sensor, a finger on a button, or a Twitter message - and turn it into an output - activating a motor, turning on an LED, or publishing something online. You can tell your board what to do by sending a set of instructions to the microcontroller on the board.

BBC MicroBit

BBC Micro:Bit is another popular programming platform for all sorts of cool creations, from robots to musical instruments and is widely used in many schools around the world. It can be coded from any web browser in Blocks, Javascript, Python, Scratch and more.

 

Advanced features of vSpace Pro, now FREE in 11.2

 

RX300 is Cloud-Ready with vCAST streaming support

vCAST Streaming

vCAST Streaming reduces server-side CPU usage when users watch web videos like YouTube or local media content, and does so without the need for expensive GPUs. This technology results in higher quality video streaming without CPU bottlenecks, allowing for more concurrent users on your system.

 

Broadcast

Broadcasting

Broadcasting provides screen sharing functionality, allowing one screen to be broadcast to others. This allows an instructor to broadcast their screen, or a students screen, to everyone else. Great for presentations, sharing local or web videos, or highlighting other content within a group. To learn more click here.

Block All

Block All

Blocking all active sessions in vSpace provides instructors or team leaders instant control to focus attention of the audience by blanking all user session screens and blocking all keyboard & mouse interactions. To learn more click here.

 

Smart card reader

Enhanced Smart Card Support

If your organization requires smart cards for single sign-on, access control or other security-related measures, vSpace Pro version 11 provides enhanced smart card support for RX300 with no limit on the number of smart card readers can be connected per vSpace Server. To learn more click here.

 

What does vSpace Pro cost?

Believe it or not, we give it away for free. And by free, we mean download it, install it, use our self-help center and documentation to get everything up and running, and expand until your heart’s content. And with this latest version of vSpace Pro, we’ve included Dual Monitor support and a revamped UXP 2.0 protocol that will increase the performance of older L-series and M-series devices, not to mention the RX300. Oh, and we give you a 30-day free trial of AMP for vSpace Pro. Free trial of what?
