The Scense Workspace Management solution separates all information about applications, desktop
configurations, and users from the underlying Microsoft Windows operating system and stores it in a central
database. This information is managed centrally, in real time, from one management console during the entire
user session. This enables Scense to create personalized desktops and deliver applications and other IT resources
dynamically, independent of the type of machine: desktop, laptop, VDI, terminal services, company owned, or
employee owned. Scense also supports all common application delivery techniques: virtualized, streamed, or
To deliver and execute the right application and desktop at the right time and in the right way, Scense takes
into consideration a large number of user context variables, ranging from the type of device and user identity to
current date and physical location. This approach delivers both a high quality desktop experience and compliance
with IT regulations.
Virtual Computer’s NxTop* combines a centralized management system and local execution with an
enhanced Citrix Xen*–based type 1 client hypervisor. All execution is local; only management functions have
been centralized. Because only the management functions are centralized, the solution requires very little
infrastructure in the data center. As an example, a typical VDI server that could serve about 40 end points would
be sufficient to manage over 1,200 end points using the Virtual Computer architecture.
Virtual Computer’s centralized shared image management capability enables IT professionals to manage
thousands of desktops and laptops in the same way that they would manage one. It delivers native PC
performance; mobility; security, including AES 256 disk encryption; and data protection, including full backup and
It offers centralized control over the end point, including control over ports, update interval settings, network
access controls for wired and wireless networks, and restart. An Apple* Mac*–like dock enables users to
swiftly move between multiple VMs, enabling them to use a single PC to work across both a secure corporate
environment and a personal environment.
