  • Quiet cooling solutions
  • Lower overall platform power for improved battery

Mobile Device Operating Systems
  • Windows XP Home/Professional/XPe
  • Traditional Linux Distributions
  • Intel Moblin Project
  • Google Android
  • Ubuntu Netbook Remix
  • Windows 7 Starter
  • gOS
  • Cloud based Operating System
  • Mac OS X

Cloud Computing
  • A definition refers to any situation in which
    computing is done in a remote location (out in
    the clouds), rather than on your desktop or
    portable device.
  • You tap into that computing power over an
    Internet connection.
  • "The cloud is a smart, complex, powerful
    computing system in the sky that people can just
    plug into."
  • Web browser pioneer Marc Andreessen

Cloud Structure
  • Cloud Benefits
  • Cloud Less Investment
  • (not own data center, hardware use outside
    provider of servers, storage, and bandwidth)
  • Cloud Scale
  • (tens of thousands of server computers)
  • Cloud Flexible and Efficiency

Cloud Computing Types
Cloud Operating Systems
  • Work completely online personally OR
  • Provide basic OS functionality
  • Centrally manage OS images
  • Public or Private cloud services
  • Enable lower cost computing elements (lower cost
  • Various Fee and free offerings

Intel My WiFi Technology Sync, Share, Show
  • Sync Wi-Fi enabled devlices like media players or
    digital cameras
  • Share content among your Wi-Fi devices anywhere
  • Show content from one Wi-Fi enabled device on
    another Wi-Fi device. Ex. Show a streaming video
    from the Internet on an HDTV
  • Print directly to a Wi-Fi enabled printer
  • My WiFi technology lets your Wi-Fi enabled CE
    devices connect directly and securely to your
    notebook without having to go through a Wi-Fi
    network access point. Your Intel Centrino 2
    processor technology based notebook is your own
    portable Wi-Fi network.
  • Intel My WiFi technology inherits the same mature
    security capabilities of conventional Wi-Fi (i.e.
    WPA, WPA2, etc)
  • Intel WiFi Link 5100 or Intel Ultimate N WiFi
    Link 5300 required Windows Vista Win 7

Managed Mobile Environment
Typical Terminal Services/Citrix Implementation
WindowsTerminalsand NCs
WinFrame MetaFrameServer Farms
Wireless Terminals and Information Appliances
What is a Multi User OS Environment?
  • Hardware/Software stack that runs applications on
    a remote server, not on a local desktop.
  • Key strokes and mouse click are sent over network
    to the server to process and give back the
    result thus sometimes referred to as
  • Clients can be a low powered PC or a Thin client
  • Thin Clients typically dont have HDD, FDD,
    CDROMS, Cooling Fans. Most have Low Processing

What is a Thin Client? How does it work?
  • Small User device about 1/3 Size Of PC.
  • Can Support Windows CE, XP Embedded, Thin OSs
    (i.e. ThinConnect) and Linux Environments.
  • Some are configured with NO local OS.
  • Can Be Configured On As Low As 16Mb Of RAM.
  • Same Feel As Working On a Windows Based OS
    basic Windows fidelity.
  • Remote Computation.Server Takes Care Of All The
  • Works On either Citrixs ICA (Independent
    Computing Architecture), Suns ALP (Appliance
    Link Protocol) Or Microsoft's RDP (Remote
    Desktop Protocol) Protocols (Both Require Only
    20Kbps Speed Over Network To Work).
  • User Logs Onto The Server Via Web Portal And A
    Familiar Windows Base Environment is Replicated
    to Users Screens With Access To Application,
    Internet, Mail, Drives, Printers, Etc.

Thin Clients General Overview
  • Sun Microsystems SunRay 2 (All based on Sun Ray
  • Range from 349.00 to 799.00 depending on
  • HP 5000 Series (OS Choice HP ThinConnect,
    ThinPro, Xpe or CE6) Range from 249.00 to
    600.00 depending on configuration
  • Wyse S, V, R, G series (OS Choice Linux, Xpe,
    CE6, Zero WSM)
  • Range from 250.00 to 1200.00

Client Hardware VirtualizationShare excess
computing resources among multiple users!
Turn 1 PC to up 30 Virtual PCs
NComputing Technology Enables Desktop
NComputing vSpace Software runs on standard
Windows or Linux host computer
NComputing Access Terminals are slim, silent,
efficient, and very low cost
NComputing User Extension Protocol (UXP) delivers
a secure, multi-media interface
Hardware Product Line Overview
X-Series Direct Connection
  • Lowest Cost
  • Full multimedia
  • Host in same room (10m)
  • 1 watt per user
  • X550 Up to 11 users per host
  • X300 Up to 7 users per host

L-Series Ethernet Connection
  • Most Flexible
  • Highest of users per host
  • Ethernet no distance limits
  • 5 watts per user
  • Up to 30 users per host computer

X Series Configuration
Ideal environments K-12
Note Four users can share a PC running with one
X300 kit. Seven users can share with
two X300 kits.
L Series Deployment Architecture
Ideal Environments Some Higher Ed computer labs
Connects over the LAN or WAN at any distance
using an IP address
  • Why buy an access terminal vs. another PC
  • Saves Hardware cost (less expensive than a thin
    client and easier to deploy).
  • Reduces IT Maintenance
  • Promotes central storage networks to increase
    data security
  • Reduces Power consumption and saves energy
  • Essentially, never obsolete and easy to upgrade
  • Eliminate any down time by having multiple host

Note Up to 30 users can share if the host
hardware is a server running a server OS (i.e.
Terminal Server 2008).
Sample Hardware Virtualized environment
In this example, just four host PCs are needed
for a lab with 24 students!
Student is playing a game in class
During Class Time, Playing a game
NControl can monitor student sessions, send
warnings, and even close the game window
Send a warning message to a student and close an
game window by using NControl
Only 1 network cable drop feeds 7 students --
dramatically reducing wiring costs/time
  • Access Terminal at student
  • Powered by the Ethernet cable, so
  • no additional electrical needed
  • Generates no heat, hence no
  • HVAC retrofits required
