ComputerVault is deployed either on site or in a colocation facility as a Virtual Desktop Infrastructure with a unique technology stack that efficiently delivers virtual desktops. Since data is accessed only by your business, ComputerVault VDI ensures data privacy and protection.
ComputerVault makes use of many different technologies:
Hyper-converged Infrastructure combined with VDI, virtual networking, and a hypervisor, provide fail over between all infrastructure components, servers, storage, network and applications, without requiring additional hardware. If any component or virtual server crashes, it fails over to another virtual server so that corporate data and applications are always available without downtime.
Businesses have access to data and applications hosted in the ComputerVault from both a Local Area Network and remotely from the WAN via a secure encrypted connection.
Built-in integration connects ComputerVault to any offsite resources, i.e., Public Clouds, datacenters, colocation facilities, etc., as well as any other ComputerVault. For an organization having multiple locations, any combination of resources may be connected in any network topology. All ComputerVaults are also connected to either our NOC, or yours, for 24x7 monitoring and support.
Compared to PC's and laptops, virtual desktops and virtual servers are both more secure and less expensive to support. The other virtual desktop solutions available in the marketplace, however, require very expensive initial investments in hardware and software to deploy them. Typically, there is an 8 to 10 year break even period before the lower support costs return an investment. With virtual desktops from ComputerVault, there is an immediate return on investment, since ComputerVault is less expensive than any competing virtual desktop product and less expensive than buying and supporting physical PC's.
Because ComputerVault VDI is 100% proprietary, and does not license any third-party software or require expensive hardware to host it, ComputerVault is priced for widespread adoption. Available on a subscription basis, ComputerVault is purchased like a DaaS or Cloud Service, but is hosted onsite or in a colo as a secure VDI. There's also no need to buy VPN's, firewalls, routers, UTM's and the other network gear that physical servers, PC's and laptops require.
ComputerVault delivers 100% redundancy for data, desktops, servers, applications and infrastructure components, combined with enhanced cybersecurity:
A variety of Thin Clients as well as Fat Clients, (PC’s and laptops) are available for connecting to the ComputerVault Virtual Desktops.
An existing PC or laptop can be used as a client for connecting to a virtual desktop by installing a ComputerVault Software Client. It is recommended that the fat client be used for Internet browsing, rather than accessing the Internet from the virtual desktop. Doing so isolates the virtual desktop from any malware, spyware or ransomware safeguarding corporate applications and data from harm.
There are a number of Linux and Windows-based ComputerVault Thin Clients, including the nP100, which is about the size of a deck of cards. Inexpensive Mini PC’s may also be used as well. A monitor, mouse and keyboard are plugged into the Thin Client and it connects the user to their virtual desktop. The Thin Client also provides Internet browsing like a Fat Client, isolating the virtual desktop from malware, spyware and ransomware. For most people a Mini PC is a great option, since it provides the same user experience as a PC.
Customers that have existing PC’s and laptops can continue to use them as Fat Clients in the LAN and WAN for accessing their virtual desktops with the ComputerVault Software Client. If a customer wants to later eliminate PC’s and Laptops, an inexpensive Thin Client can replace the PC. Any combination of Fat and Thin Clients may be utilized. Additionally, a ComputerVault Software Client may be installed on an employee’s personal devices for secure access to the corporate network. In short, you can phase out buying PCs altogether.
