  3. 3. Centralized Computing Solution DocumentABOUT THIS DOCUMENTThis document is a solution document for centralized computing requirements of organization of any size usingApplication Presentation Virtualization and Desktop Virtualization technologies.REQUIREMENTSThe solution document is applicable for organizations having LAN/WAN/Roaming users who needs access tobusiness critical, office productivity and general applications within the corporate LAN/WAN as well as whileroaming outside office network.Typically an organization is faced with following challenges when it comes to making applications available totheir users: 1. Information Security: With traditional computing, every user has a full capacity PC where the user can create and store corporate and business information. This information, even though the user do not intend to, is prone to under utilization, corruption, misuse and leakage. 2. Data Consolidation: With data on end user’s machine, it is not easy to make the same data available to all users in real time. The information sharing is on one to one basis. Also it is difficult to track which data is latest or is modified. There is a need to centralize the data so that it can be shared by users in real time and there is a versioning control system which can deliver latest contents to users. 3. Access Control Inside Network: Since all users have full PC, every user has access to almost all corporate applications and they can create, modify or access any data on the network. This poses security threat to the company information as an unauthorized user can have access to classified information and network areas. There is need to implement role based access to information and application. 4. Under Utilized Resources and Licenses: Application With every user having full access to their local desktop, it is difficult for IT to maintain the application license inventory and usage information. It is found by the IT team that there are application licenses which are locked on end user machines but the users are not using those application licenses. This puts the corporate resources to less utilization and more cost in terms of application licensing. There is a need to dynamically allocate licenses to user as they need to access the applications. 5. Application Performance: Most of the legacy and corporate applications are not designed to work over slow and high latency networks like ISDN, dialup, VSAT and even lease lines and RF links, The slow performance of the application over such networks results in under utilization of the application capabilities and the employee productivity capacity. Organizations needs to deliver applications to their users at blazing speeds to maximize the productivity 6. Support Issues and Administration: In multi-branch office scenarios, IT teams spend lot of time managing the resources at branch offices. Either the organization needs to have local IT teams at branch offices or they need to support users from a central location. In worst cases, the problematic machines need to be brought to IT department and is then fixed which results in loss of productivity and higher 3.Copyright © 2011, Propalms Network Private Limited.
  4. 4. Centralized Computing Solution Document administration costs. There is a need to reduce the end user support issues by eliminating maximum of resources from user side but making them available from a central location on demand.PROPOSED SOLUTIONSPropalms Network offers two different solution architectures.  APPLICATION DELIVERY PLATFORM OVER TERMINAL SERVICES USING PROPALMS TSE  VIRTUAL DESKTOP INFRASTRUCTURE USING PROPALMS VDI 4.Copyright © 2011, Propalms Network Private Limited.
  5. 5. Centralized Computing Solution DocumentSOLUTION 1: APPLICATION DELIVERY PLATFORM OVER TERMINAL SERVICES USINGPROPALMS TSEABOUT PROPALMS TSEPropalms TSE is a complete Server Based Management solution that extends Microsoft Terminal Services2000/2003 and 2008, offering features such as Application Publishing, Virtual Desktop Broker, Seamless Windows,Resource based Load Balancing, Simple Web based Management, Session Management, Server HealthMonitoring, Reporting, Virtual IP, Single Port Relay, Universal Print Driver, Application Access via DesktopShortcut, Windows Start Menu or Browser-based Application LaunchPad.Propalms TSE - Completing the Terminal Services ExperienceMicrosoft Windows Terminal Services (also known as Server Based Computing or Thin Client architecture) is themost cost effective method of application delivery for small-medium sized businesses up to Enterprise Levelorganizations. Propalms TSE is designed to make the most of your Windows® Terminal Services deployment byleveraging the most recent enhancements to the Microsoft® Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP). Propalms TSEadds indispensable management capabilities and scales to accommodate growing numbers of users,applications and servers, securely, reliably, and cost-effectively.What is Server Based Computing?Server Based Computing (SBC) is an architecture in which applications are installed and configured centrallyon servers. The applications run 100% on the central servers with only mouse clicks, keystrokes and screenupdates travelling across the network between the servers and client devices. From a users perspective, theapplications appear as though they are running locally where as they are actually being executed on theservers. Due to this fact, client devices are independent from the applications and can include desktop PCsand thin client devices (Windows and Linux based), Macintosh computers, and handheld devices.Server Based Computing provides many business benefits including:Simplified Management – all application management is performed centrally.Ease of Deployment – applications can be instantly delivered to end user’s devices without visiting them.Security – all data is kept centrally on the datacenter with no data left on laptops or PCs.Availability – applications can be load balanced to ensure they are always available to users.Support – support costs can be reduced as all users and applications can be managed centrally.Remote Working – easily provide access to applications from remote locations with local network typeperformance.Lower TCO – Total Cost of Ownership can be reduced dramatically and productivity can be increased. 5.Copyright © 2011, Propalms Network Private Limited.
  6. 6. Centralized Computing Solution DocumentSYSTEM ARCHITECTUREDeployment:Propalms TSE Server will be installed on server class hardware at the datacenter where the application serversare hosted. The applications used by end users will be installed on Propalms TSE server. Propalms TSE server willbe accessible to all users across the locations over corporate backbone. Optionally access to Propalms TSEserver can be provided over Internet to roaming users who need to access the application when outside ofoffice.Access Scenario:Using Propalms TSE, all corporate applications will be delivered to end users from the datacenter. Users can usetheir existing PCs, Mobile devices or thin clients to access Propalms Server. Users access Propalms server using aInternet Explorer browser and must authenticate before they can login into Propalms TSE server. Once loggedin, the users will be displayed icons of the applications on the browsers. User will have access to the applicationwhich are assigned to the user or to the group the user belongs to. User can click on application icons onbrowser and the application will be launched on the Propalms TSE server. At this time, application presentationwill be displayed on user’s screen. The mouse movements and keyboard clicks will sent from users machine toPropalms TSE server and the application screen refreshes will be sent back to user’s machine. User can nowstart interacting with the application in similar fashion as the user will use locally installed applications.Management Scenario:The administrator for Propalms TSE can be done using a web based management console. Using the Propalmsmanagement console, administrator can publish applications to different groups of users and do the requiredaccess control. Administrator can give access to some user but deny access to applications to other users. 6.Copyright © 2011, Propalms Network Private Limited.
  7. 7. Centralized Computing Solution DocumentAdministrator then defines the local device sharing parameter which will define how the users will share thedata from their local machine to server. For e.g., administrator may allow users to map their local PC drive tothe Propalms TSE server so that they can download the data generated by applications. This will also includesetting up parameters for printing so that users can print to their local printers from hosted applications.Administrator can monitor the application licensing usage and monitor the users activity. Administrator canprovide remote support to users by shadowing their session on Propalms TSE server.Infrastructure Requirements:Software Requirements:  Propalms TSE Solution 6.5  Windows 2003 Server Enterprise Edition or Windows 2008 Server 64 bit Enterprise EditionHardware Requirements:There is no simple formula to calculate the hardware size. Essentially we will have to calculate the memoryfootprint and CPU utilization nature of the applications.For an approximation purpose, for 500 concurrent users, each user session consuming 200 MB of RAM, we willneed to setup a server farm with following configuration:7 Servers with following configuration:Windows 2003/2008 server 64 bit Enterprise EditionRAM : 16 GBCPU: Core 2 Duo Processor 2.0 GHz or higher 64 bit processorFor adding reliability to the server farm, there should be at least 1 additional (recommended 2) servers.Licensing Requirements:  Microsoft Windows Server License x no. of servers (7 here)  Microsoft TS CALs – Per Seat/Per User (approx 500 here)  Propalms TSE License x 500 (concurrent users)  Microsoft SQL Express (Free) 7.Copyright © 2011, Propalms Network Private Limited.

  12. 12. Centralized Computing Solution DocumentCHOOSING THE RIGHT COMPONENTSPropalms VDI supports multiple hypervisor platforms namely: a) Parallels Virtuozzo Containers 4.5 b) VMWare vSphere 4.0 (ESX) c) RedHat KVMEach hypervisor platform has its own performance criteria’s to decide how much hardware is required to setupa good VDI environment. You should consider following points before choosing the hypervisor technology forthe VDI setup.PARALLELS VIRTUOZZO CONTAINERS BASED VDIParallels is a global leader in OS virtualization based solutions. Parallels Virtuozzo solution is the de-factorsoftware used for web hosting purposes where thin containers are required for virtual server hosting. Parallelshas now improved their solution to act as the lightest VDI solution. 1. Parallels is OS virtualization technology, I,e, it requires a host OS, namely Windows server platform. Parallels uses the host OS and create independent light containers out of the same OS binaries. 2. Parallels containers are very light, starts from 100 MB RAM and 200 MB HDD space per container. 3. Parallels has built-in application streaming facility such that you need to install application once and then you can share the application among other containers. 4. Parallels use requires Windows server platform as host OS and produce virtual desktops which are running the same server OS and not Windows 7 or Windows XP desktops. Though themes are available to make the desktops look like Windows 7 and Windows XP. 5. Desktop management , storage requirement and resource requirement is minimal in case of Parallels. 6. Applications that change time of systems or applications which are not terminal services friendly are not supported on Parallels based VDI solution. 7. Windows Terminal services licenses are required for Parallels solution. 8. Parallels is highly recommended for simple task based applications. All applications must be tested fully to verify the application compatibility.Requirements for setting up VDI using Parallels solutionSoftware Requirements:  Propalms VDI Solution,  Parallels Virtuozzo Container Server  Windows 2003 Server Enterprise Edition or Windows 2008 Server 64 bit Enterprise Edition 12.Copyright © 2011, Propalms Network Private Limited.
  13. 13. Centralized Computing Solution DocumentHardware Requirements:There is no simple formula to calculate the hardware size. Essentially we will have to calculate the memoryfootprint and CPU utilization nature of the applications.For an approximation purpose, for 100 concurrent users, each user session consuming 200 MB of RAM, we willneed to setup a server farm with following configuration:3 Servers with following configuration:Windows 2003/2008 server 64 bit Enterprise EditionRAM : 16 GBCPU: Intel Xeon Processor 2.0 GHz or higher, 64 bit processorEach server would be capable of support 50 virtual containers. So even if one server goes down, other twoserves can support total 100 users.Licensing Requirements:  Microsoft Windows Server License x no. of servers (3 here), Datacenter edition  Microsoft Terminal Services CALs – per Seat/Per User (100 here)  Propalms VDI License x 100 (concurrent users)  Parallels Virtuozzo Container Server License (3 here, per socket based) OR go for 100 user VDI license pack  Microsoft SQL Express (Free)VMWARE vSPHERE BASED VDIVMWare is the global leader in hypervisor technology. The hypervisor platform of VMWare is named as vSphere(earlier ESX). 1. VMWare creates virtual hardware and then OS needs to be installed separately in each virtual machine. Though automation like golden images and cloning is available to avoid installation time of OS for each virtual machine. 2. Each virtual machine required independent OS license key, Antivirus and firewall solution. 3. It is possible to install any OS in virtual machine created on VMWare. 4. VMWare based machines requires at least 1 GB RAM per machine and 10GB+ of HDD space. Hence the RAM and storage requirements are very high. 5. With VMWare you get actual Windows 7 and Windows XP desktops and hence no application compatibility issue.Requirements for setting up VDI using VMWare solutionSoftware Requirements: 13.Copyright © 2011, Propalms Network Private Limited.

  17. 17. Centralized Computing Solution DocumentWHEN TO CHOOSE VDI OVER TERMINAL SERVICES (TSE) Most of the application delivery needs can be satisfied using terminal services (Proaplms TSE) only. There are specific reasons to go for VDI based desktop delivery. Here are few:  One of more Applications are not supported over terminal services because of following reasons o Application require only desktop OS like XP/Vista. This is very rare as no application binds itself to the desktop OSes. The application vendor may not have officially supported terminal services. o Only one instance of the application can be invoked on a single OS o Application requires administrator rights for operations o Application is high resource intensive hence not feasible to have multiple users logged on to same machine and running multiple instances of the application.  Organizations really want to cut down on desktop management and move to virtual desktops  Mobile users who use non-Windows OS like tablet PCs, mobile OS devices like iPad, Android, etc.  Organization wants to go complete centralized computing for compliance reasons and terminal services is no enough as users do want to have their own desktop.WHY PROPALMS VDIPropalms VDI is the most cost effective hypervisor agnostic solution. Propalms as a single vendor provides threedifferent solutions for all application access needs: 1. VDI for Virtual desktop delivery 2. TSE for application delivery over terminal services 3. VPN for secure remote access to network services and application serversWith these three products organizations can deliver any application to any type of users working from anylocation.VDI being a capital intensive solution, Propalms offers highly cost effective management solution.VMWARE VDI vs PROPALMS VDIPropalms VDI is a replacement solution for VMWare’s VDI offering VMWare View. Customer already usingVMWare platform tend to go for VMWare View solution which adds significantly to the cost of implementingVDI. With Propalms VDI, customers can save huge cost by avoiding to buy VMWare View. 17.Copyright © 2011, Propalms Network Private Limited.
