Scense supports mobile devices that run a Windows operating system. Scense will deliver applications, find the
best way to execute these applications local or in the data center , and manage the mobile desktop the same as
it does with regular desktops. Additionally:
The “context awareness” of Scense allows for proximity printing.
Scense supports offline usage: Mobile devices that are offline are still in a
managed state, and applications are still available.
Mobile devices are also within the span that IT controls outside the LAN.
There is no need for mobile users to start VPN connections or use cables: a
Wi Fi connection is sufficient to get access to new applications or updates.
Employee owned devices are supported, even if they use the home editions
of the Windows operating system.
Virtual Computer natively supports mobile users because all execution is local—running on the end user PC.
Only management functions have been centralized. We believe that this allows IT professionals to benefit from
centralized management without affecting mobility for the end users.
We support mobile users in both an online and offline fashion. Mobile users can use mobile thin clients, laptop PCs,
tablets, or smart phones to connect to their data center–hosted virtual desktop via the View Client anywhere they
have an Internet connection. View Client for iPad* allows users to use Wi Fi or 3G to access their data center–
hosted virtual desktops. Alternatively, users can check out their virtual desktop locally to a laptop PC and run the
virtual desktop locally when offline, while still syncing changes back to the data center when periodically online.
An upcoming release of the Mirage solution will empower mobile users to access the files on their end point from
any other device. For example, a user on an iPad or BlackBerry*, or other PC will be able to access the files on
their end point using a web browser, thereby providing file access to the end users from anywhere.
