  • Overview of a SMC boot The physical hardware is connected to the SAN, and LDMS (on San or Server). Note there is no local disk storage. Common boot identified, the hypervisor boots from a common boot image over iSCSI using the iSCSI services built into the physical NIC The user Logs-on to the boot manager. The LDMS server validates the User, and finds their image on the SAN. The User Operating system and image is booted, and any local HW, based on policy, is given to the UOS. The policy could for example limit access to local CDROM, ot USB ports, …

  • These are the TCO results generated by the publicly available calculator on Principled Technologies website (www.principledtechnologies.com). This is based on 1000 clients. Recommendation for presenting this slide is not to boast about OS streaming on vPro being the absolute lowest TCO. You will get into a debate about the details that will get the discussion off-track. Instead, show how all the managed models will reduce TCO substantially (except blade PCs), and that the decision should be based on other factors, such as mobility, application richness and datacenter build-out. Thin client advocate frequently cite power or “green IT” as major advantages. They point to a thin client with <25watts versus a PC with >110watts and declare victory. The first flaw in that argument is that the power moves from the clients to the datacenter, where there may be major issues with power delivery and cooling. The second flaw in the argument is that, even if power savings could be demonstrated, IT may be compromising business capabilities by going to thin clients. A well managed vPro installation with application virtualization may deliver lower costs, power reductions and more capabilities. SIDE NOTE: We have yet to encounter a customer interested in thin clients because of power savings or “green IT.” They are doing it for management, security and cost reasons. Any residual power savings are cited as IT’s contribution to the corporate “green” initiatives. Our discussions with analysts and customers reinforce this view.
  • This gives IT the ability to asses the performance of groups of machines set against the context of the production day (user presence, resource utilization, and PC Unavailability). This gives IT a windows into usage patterns, resource bottlenecks, and correlates this data to specific applications. Placeholder - Presentation title | 6 April, 2006

    • 15. SMC vs Streaming <ul><li>While Streaming is the closest technology solution to SMC, there are significant functional and costs differences </li></ul><ul><li>Overall cost of SMC solution is significantly lower than Streaming </li></ul>Stream either on none Must streams both OS & applications Software isolation; i.e., Softricity, SVS, Thinstall Requires unique image Same as a standard PC Requires unique packaging and testing Patch management & imaging Streaming doesn’t allow suspend, hibernate Same as a standard PC Doesn’t support any power management Functionality compared to standard PC PxE requires PxE servers or opening ports. iSCSI PxE Network boot SMC identical to PC. SMC can run Ardence if desired. Does not require special software Ardence software @ $250/user Streaming software; i.e., Ardence $100 additional cost per user plus DataCenter Typically requires VMWare & NAS Additional back-end Servers harder to deploy w/ higher TCO iSCSI up to 150 users per Server up to 100 users per Back-end Comments SMC Streaming
