  • Cloud computing is similar to what the tech industry has been calling "on-demand" or "utility" computing, terms used to describe the ability to tap into computing power on the Web with the same ease as plugging into an electric outlet in your home This makes sense for people who don't want to invest in building their own data centers or don't want to buy all the hardware required to handle "peaks" in demand. You can rely on outside provider to give you servers, storage, and bandwidth as you need it. Cloud computing's appeal is that it can eliminate a company's need for its own data center. It also lets businesses pay for bandwidth on an on-demand basis
  • Supercomputers today are used mainly by the military, government intelligence agencies, universities and research labs, and large companies to tackle enormously complex calculations for such tasks as simulating nuclear explosions, predicting climate change, designing airplanes, and analyzing which proteins in the body are likely to bind with potential new drugs. Cloud computing aims to apply that kind of power—measured in the tens of trillions of computations per second—to problems like analyzing risk in financial portfolios, delivering personalized medical information, even powering immersive computer games, in a way that users can tap through the Web This makes sense for people who don't want to invest in building their own data centers or don't want to buy all the hardware required to handle "peaks" in demand. You can rely on outside provider to give you servers, storage, and bandwidth as you need it. One is scale. Google, Yahoo! ( YHOO ), Microsoft ( MSFT ), and Amazon.com ( AMZN ) have vast data centers full of tens of thousands of server computers, offering computing power of a magnitude never before available. Cloud computing is also more flexible. Clouds can be used not only to perform specific computing tasks, but also to handle wide swaths of the technologies companies need to run their operations. Then there's efficiency: The servers are hooked to each other so they operate like a single large machine, so computing tasks large and small can be performed more quickly and cheaply than ever before.
  • This diagram shows side-by-side how the connections between the users and host are different for the X- and the L-series. X Series access devices connect directly to a PCI card installed in the computer. This limits the maximum number of users that can share a host to seven (one on the host and 3 connected to each of 2 PCI cards). L Series access devices connect to the host PC over Ethernet through standard networking cable, switches and routers. This lets us connect up to 30 users to a single host.
  • This diagram shows how the X Series would be configured for a 7 user system.
  • This diagram shows how the L Series would be configured for a 30 user system.
  • This diagram show how just 4 host PCs can provide computing for 24 students. If a student is playing Solitaire, the teacher can see it through NControl. If a student downloads a virus or pirated software, the NShield software can restore the computer to a known-good state.

  • 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 “screen-casting”
    • Clients can be a low powered PC or a Thin client device.
    • Thin Clients typically don’t have HDD, FDD, CDROMS, Cooling Fans. Most have Low Processing Power.
  • 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 OS’s (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 Processing.
    • Works On either Citrix`s ICA (Independent Computing Architecture), Sun’s ALP (Appliance Link Protocol) Or Microsoft's RDP (Remote Desktop Protocol) Protocols (Both Require Only 20Kbps Speed Over Network To Work).

    • 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 PC’s
  • Sample Hardware Virtualized environment During Class Time, Playing a game Send a warning message to a student and close an game window by using NControl NControl can monitor student sessions, send warnings, and even close the game window Student is playing a game in class In this example, just four host PCs are needed for a lab with 24 students!
    • Access Terminal at student:
    • Powered by the Ethernet cable, so
    • no additional electrical needed
    • Generates no heat, hence no
    • HVAC retrofits required
    Only 1 network cable drop feeds 7 students -- dramatically reducing wiring costs/time
