  2. 2. How Does vDesk Work? RingCube’s breakthrough Workspace Virtualization Engine, with 24 virtualization patents pending, enables vDesk to decouple the user’s desktop environment, including applications, data, and settings, from the operating system and encapsulates it into a virtual workspace. To self-provision vDesk workspaces, users login to the vDesk Client Portal, select a workspace master, and create their own personalized workspace instances. vDesk has the flexibility to deliver virtual desktops to users wherever they are through a variety of deployment options, including: • PC – vDesk is stored and runs locally on the users’ PC • Drive – vDesk is stored on USB drive, or other removable media and run locally. • Network – vDesk is stored on a network file share and run locally • VDI (Virtual Desktop Infrastructure) – vDesk is stored in the data center and accessed remotely using VDI F E AT U R E S VDESK VDESK BENEFIT S TA N D A R D ENTERPRISE Flexible Deployment Deliver vDesk on a PC, Drive, over the network, Options • • or using VDI High Performance & Performs at 99% of host PC and requires only 40-80 MB Lightweight • • Low Deployment Costs No second operating system to license, infrastructure • • to build-out or thin clients to purchase MobileSync Synchronize and backup vDesk workspaces between four vDesk • • deployment options (PC, Drive, Network, VDI) and work offline Network Virtualization & Separate network traffic to enable VPNs and prevent Isolation • • malware on the host from viewing vDesk workspace traffic Host Security Scanning Ensures that host PCs are protected by endpoint security • • prior to allowing vDesk workspaces to start Globally Distributed Deploy hierarchical and distributed management system that Management • synchronize multiple servers to provide unlimited scalability Distributed Image Create and master images over the network enabling Creation • administrators to collaborate on building vDesk workspaces Multi-site Storage Assign vDesk workspaces to different file servers based on • user group or workspace master to optimize network access SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS Administration Server (Required) File Server (Optional for Network mode deployment) Microsoft Windows Server 2003 or 2008, XP SP2 or later, Microsoft Windows 2003 or 2008 File Server Disk Space: 200MB, System Memory: 2GB Directory Server (Optional) vDesk Client and Workspaces (Required) Microsoft Active Directory Microsoft Windows XP SP2 or later, Vista SP1 or later, Windows 7 (32-bit) RINGCUBE TECHNOLOGIES 100 W Evelyn Ave., Suite 210, Mountain View, CA 94041 | Main: 1-866-323-4278 | International: 650-605-6900 | Fax: 408-605-6901 © 2010.
