NComputing Announces General Availability of oneSpace(TM)

First Unified Workspace Solution Designed for Small and Mid-Sized Organizations Starts at Less Than a Dollar per Day per User

SANTA CLARA, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/26/14 -- NComputing, a leader in client virtualization solutions, today announced the general availability of NComputing oneSpace. NComputing oneSpace is a unified workspace solution that enables IT to unify and securely deliver applications and files as a service to a variety of devices, including iPad and Android tablets.

The reality of IT today is a world of hybrid devices, applications and file services. This is exacerbated by the accelerated growth of Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) initiatives. Therefore, IT departments need a simpler way to orchestrate and deliver essential business assets to their end users. Until now, IT departments within small and mid-sized organizations have not been equipped with the right tools to aggregate and provide secure access to all applications and files from mobile devices.

With NComputing oneSpace, IT can unify the delivery of Windows, Web and SaaS applications, and both on-premises and cloud file shares to tablets without having to re-write applications or make costly changes to their existing infrastructure. All of this is delivered to mobile users via a single oneSpace mobile app with a common user experience across tablet devices. This results in improved end user productivity while allowing IT departments to maintain control of their internal applications and data.

NComputing oneSpace represents another step forward in NComputing's mission to deliver the most innovative client virtualization solutions to the market today. As the only unified workspace solution designed specifically for the needs of small and mid-sized organizations, NComputing oneSpace delivers the ultimate unified workspace solution starting at less than a dollar per day per user to meet even the most demanding IT budgets.

Alternative solutions are not designed to meet the needs of small and mid-sized organizations and often require forklift infrastructure upgrades, data migration, application re-writing, deep IT budgets, and a large number of IT staff to implement and manage. NComputing oneSpace allows IT to eliminate these high costs through a unique formula of simplicity, performance and value.

100 Percent Cloud or On-Premises Deployment Options
NComputing oneSpace is available as either a cloud service hosted by NComputing, or as an on-premises deployment at the customer site. This gives customers the flexibility of choosing their ideal deployment that best meets their needs.

The oneSpace Production Pilot is available for both 100 percent cloud or on-premises deployment, and allows customers to quickly provision a standard set of productivity applications, and both on-premises and cloud file shares to their end users on iPad and Android tablets. NComputing provides free support during the Production Pilot for the one day onboarding process.

Customer Quotes:
"With NComputing oneSpace, our school district aims to extend our existing investment in NComputing vSpace desktop virtualization to enable support for a variety of mobile devices. The goal of seamless access to both on-premises applications and data from a very user-friendly, touch-centric workspace aligns with the needs of our staff and students."
- Geoff Wilson, Manager of Information Technology, School District 72 Campbell River, BC

"As a higher education institution, we have a large percentage of our students that are spread across two campuses in the USA and Canada bringing their own personal computing devices. With NComputing oneSpace, we can deliver expanded access to both applications and data to these personal devices, including iPad and Android tablets, without compromising on security. And since NComputing oneSpace can enable secure mobile access without requiring a VPN connection, this enables hassle-free access for our students on their device of choice, and gives our IT department the assurance that our internal resources and data are protected. Our confidence in the NComputing platform is bolstered by our current beta-testing results -- we expect full production implementation of this platform once testing is complete."

"End user performance and experience is paramount to our mobile computing strategy. We have closely evaluated NComputing oneSpace as a unique solution that will enable us to package and mobilize applications supporting access to Windows applications, cloud based services and existing file shares to a variety of mobile devices, including Windows Laptops, Tablets and Apple iPad. Our ultimate goal is to establish a centralized application and virtual space that can be accessed at the point of learning by our students."

Key Capabilities and Benefits of NComputing oneSpace:

  • Mobilize applications with a rich user experience: With oneSpace, IT can package and mobilize Windows, Web and SaaS applications and deliver them to mobile devices -- including iPad and Android tablets -- with a rich, mobile-friendly end user experience.

  • Provide secure, seamless access to existing on-premises and cloud file shares: IT can offer users unified access to all their files -- both cloud and existing Windows file shares -- while applying IT security policies and control.

  • Embrace BYOD while maintaining IT control: With oneSpace, IT can easily isolate business applications and files on personal (BYOD) devices via a secure, unified workspace, enabling complete control of business applications and file access while preserving the end users' native experience and personal data privacy.

  • Provide VPN-less access to internal portals, intranets, and secure web pages: Because the oneSpace app is a secure container, security for all applications, files and user sessions are maintained within the solution itself. So now organizations can avoid the high-cost of implementing a VPN infrastructure and securely extend applications and files to remote users with oneSpace.
