E-VDI for K12 School

Background

With the rapid development of information technology, the old computer classroom infrastructure is unable to meet the increasingly complex teaching environment.

School IT construction needs:

1. How to make use of new information technology to construct advance technology for easily maintain and manage.

2. Meet the demand of separated teaching environment, high resources utilization rate. 

3. Build economic, secure and reliable computer classroom.

Requirements 

The present computer teaching developed to integrate information technology and teaching application, and push forward information construction in the primary and secondary school.

The traditional computer classroom still faces the following problems: 

1. Teaching software and operating system upgrade, caused computer upgrading frequently.

2. Numerous heterogeneous computers, it is difficult to install operating system and software to all.

3. Fat computer system, poor teachers and students using experience, affect the teaching result.

4. Easily damage computer systems, unable to avoid the risk.

5. Low resource utilization for fat computer classroom, operation cost is expensive.

Construction Target

The objective of this program is to use the latest virtualization technology to build E-VDI classrooms for schools, use education cloud desktop solutions to replace traditional fat PC, make full use of server compute, storage space for centralized management and maintenance.

Users use free-maintenance, lower power consumption terminals to access cloud desktop from server, which improves desktop experience for the teachers and students in class. 

Through the E-VDI classroom centralized management platform to unify manage all cloud servers, virtual desktops, users, terminals. 

Use OS-easy media to broadcast teacher desktop screen to all students, which significantly reduces operation difficulty, reduces TCO, saves energy, creates green E-VDI classroom for all students.

Solution Composition

OS-Easy E-VDI products mainly include: OS-Easy E-VDI server (OS-Easy E-VDI management component), OS-Easy media screen broadcasting components, thin client.

1. Centralized management——anywhere, anytime, any device 

WEB-based graphical management platform, Administrator can access management platform in any terminal browser, which enables centralized deployment or management of all the multimedia classrooms from single location.

2. “Link clone"-quickly deploy desktops to terminals in batch 

OS-Easy E-VDI provides virtual machine “Link clone” function. The administrator only needs to create a template, then clone virtual machines with same configuration based on the template in batch, which achieves quickly distributing virtual machines to terminals by user name or terminal name.

3. "Dual-desktop mode" suits for computer teaching, and office 

In "Teaching Desktop", the virtual machine can be restored as defined; it is suitable for class teaching, training where needs many desktops. it supports to modify virtual machines IP, PC name and user name in batch. 

In "Personal Desktop", each user has one account, they can login their desktop by account to save data;

4. "Cloud update" -Easily update system patches and software for all virtual machines

Administrators just need to login management console, click "A key update" button to update one template to update all teaching desktops in batch.
