Why vSpace Pro Enterprise Edition?

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 Enterprise Edition. 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 with support for the latest Windows operating systems. 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 on-going maintenance while reducing noise pollution. Did we mention the access devices are small and can mount to the back of your monitors? Genius. And in the back room, you can make more efficient use of the host computers by increasing user density with NComputing vCAST streaming technology. vCAST provides your users with great multimedia playback experience while reducing the load on your host computers.

 

Centralized management

Small to Large Deployments, 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. Provide IT with the peace of mind via the health monitoring service with real-time alerts. Updates to vSpace Pro Enterprise Edition come with the firmware needed by the supported access devices, applied by a single button push. Use vSpace Pro Enterprise Edition to centrally manage all of your NComputing access devices. Update the firmware to all of the devices with a single button push.

 

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. Centralized user session and device management empowers IT to spend more time on productive activities. 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 Enterprise Edition supports 11 popular Windows™ operating systems, including Windows Server 2019 and Windows 10. If you use Windows, you’ll be right at home. Your users will all have the same familiar Windows desktop experience. 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 Enterprise Edition 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 Enterprise Edition comes with vSpace Console–software to manage all your connected user sessions and access devices for small and large deployments. 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.

AMP subscribers also get access to PMC, our powerful device management solution specifically designed for RX-series thin clients.

Easy setup

Microsoft

Latest Windows operating system support

More Windows versions and updates? No problem, we've got it covered, including Windows Server 2019 and Windows 10.

100 or more devices per vSpace server

Go Big - Large deployment support

An enhanced vSpace Console allows for centralized management of user sessions and devices for deployments of all sizes, including larger deployments of 100 or more vSpace sessions per host machine. More scalability enhancements are on the horizon.

Centralized management

Centralized Management & Express Deployment

NComputing devices can be easily configured and automatically receive updates from deployed vSpace Pro servers. Administrators may define a device template with all settings and configurations, then clone and push it to new devices. All can be centrally managed and provisioned by the IT admin with vSpace Pro, allowing control of hundreds of NComputing devices with just a few clicks. Users are always up-to-date with the latest technology. We also offer PMC, a device management solution tailored to RX-series thin clients, as part of the AMP subscription.

Smartboards

Smart board and Multi-touch

We've added support for smart boards (interactive whiteboards) and multi-touch screens (up to 10-point multi-touch) in vSpace Pro Enterprise Edition via the RX300, expanding collaborative possiblities to use cases such as kiosks and live demonstrations.

RX300 is Cloud-Ready with vCAST streaming support

Enhanced vCAST Streaming technology

vCAST Streaming reduces server-side CPU usage when users watch web videos like YouTube, Vimeo, 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.

 

multiview

Multiview, Broadcasting and Block All

Multiview allows you to see thumbnails of all sessions. 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. Block 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. Other user session management controls like remote session view, send message, stop/disconnect session and session-take-over are all included.

 

Enhanced Audio

Enhanced Audio Quality

New audio protocols to further enhance the sound quality of L-series, M-series and MX-series thin clients during multimedia content playback (e.g. web videos, Flash content).

 

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.

 

vSpace Pro Health Monitoring graphs

Health Monitoring

Deploy vSpace desktop virtualization with confidence by monitoring your Windows and vSpace resource utilization through the cloud dashboard. It's now easy to access and see insights into key health metrics including memory usage, connected servers, CPU utilization, and active users. You can see 30 days of historical data in 24-hour, 7-day and 30-day increments. Receive real-time alerts on excessive usage with the NComputing Health Monitor companion mobile app (android only).

UXP 2.0

UXP 2.0

If you are using vSpace 8 or 10, migrating to vSpace Pro Enterprise Edition will make a noticeable difference. 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.

SDA (HDMI)

Dual Monitor support

RX300 is a great device, but sometimes you just want room to stretch your mind. Add a second display with the SDA (Secondary Display Adapter) and enjoy more desktop.

 

Support for programmable computers for educators and students.

We've 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.
