This mainframe can host literally thousands of PC's - virtually. Why not let it...?
Q: Who will benefit from the ability to create, manage, update and maintain fully functional, Windows-capable virtual PC's, all from a central mainframe location?
A: Anybody wanting to cut overhead and simplify their computational process. This includes financial institutions, manufacturers, educators, hostpitals - in short, enterprises of all sizes, operating in all sectors. No matter what the nature of your business may be, chances are you will benefit from being able to tailor IT infrastructure according to the exact, real-time requirements of the enterprise, while at the same time cutting cost and simplifying the management process.
The door is open and the possibilities are endless. Take a look below at an example case of how z86VM might address some of the challenges faced by the educators, when it comes to providing students with the access they need to technology...
* Put computer technology within reach of every school child :
At present, the need to provide access to computer technology in schools is matched only by the difficulty and expense associated with acquiring, managing and maintaining the necessary equipment and personnel. The distribution of resources from one school district to another remains uneven, with the result that many schools simply can’t afford to equip their students with the tools they need in order to prepare for an increasingly technology-driven future. Here is how z86VM seeks to address this issue:
- Reduced operating cost: z86VM allows you to run any x86-based operating system from the mainframe environment. This means that the software required to operate let’s say a school-provided PC or laptop, can now reside at one central location. Literally thousands of PC’s can exist virtually at the datacenter. Now, as a school administrator, you are no longer burdened with the daunting prospect of providing one fully equipped, independently functioning computer for every student.
- Simplified IT management: By running the PC-associated software from one central location as opposed to hundreds - possibly thousands - you suddenly have an IT infrastructure which is exponentially simpler to manage and maintain. Needless to say, this translates into reduced cost which can be parlayed into a windfall for other important areas of the budget.
- Enhanced Efficiency: Why not take full advantage of the monolithic power of the mainframe to provide PC functionality?
So, dramatically less money and time spent on procuring PC’s for students...Proportionate decrease in money and time spent in managing and maintaining them...More efficient utilization of onhand datacenter resources.
All of which translates to a more effective education for students, and ultimately a brighter future for all of us...
