White Paper: Parallels
VMware came into the business from a pure VDI solution, while Parallels Remote Application Server originated from RDS. VMware may be more appropriate for VDI clients; however, Parallels Remote Application Server will exceed expectations with RDS clients. While considering both VDI and RDS solutions, RDS is less expensive than VDI. As a VDI management tool, VMware Horizon View is exceptionally hard to set up, arrange, and utilize. Even though it is a dedicated VDI management solution, it has a number of shortcomings when compared to Parallels Remote Application Server VDI module. An out-of-the-box installation of VMware Horizon View is limited in functionality, requiring additional add-ons (some at an additional cost) to provide basic functionality. This paper explains how the features of Parallels Remote Application Server and VMware Horizon differ and how these differences affect the end user experience. Move ahead and read the following whitepaper that will address all your questions, including these: How the installation processes for Parallels Remote Application Server differ from VMware Horizon? How to keep virtual desktops up to date? What are the unique VMware Horizon View features?
White Paper: Kontron
Choosing the right profile maximizes the value of pre-integrated systems, and provides a smart, streamlined design path for OEMs and developers. Pre-integrated systems based on COM Express Computer- on-Modules (COMe COMs) deliver a critical small form factor design advantage for a host of military and aerospace applications. By offering a slate of upgradable, rugged options in a ready-to-use small form factor platform, systems capitalize on carrier board attributes blended with the flexibility of mezzanine options, enabling a powerful competitive advantage in mil/aero system design. This informative whitepaper brings you the solutions to the always-present question of design vs. build and how to quickly and economically meet Proof of Concept (PoC) requirements. It also focuses on: Evaluating Build vs. Buy Dilemma Establishing Profiles Fuel Maximum Design Efficiency Storage Profile, Situational Awareness Profile and Server Profile Adding Flexible Value with XMC and mPCIe Mezzanines Smart Profile Choices Keeping Pace with Mil/Aero Initiatives Download this whitepaper to learn how the pre-integrated systems meet expanding military program application needs.
White Paper: INTEGRAL ANALYTICS
Across the U.S., demand-side management (DSM)4 activities, budgets and programs continue to grow in importance and to increase in overall magnitude in response to state and national policy. The effectiveness of these programs can benefit greatly from better integration and optimization in planning and operations. In the smart grid context, both the optimal integration and the full valuation of DSM cost-effectiveness (CE) have been challenging and difficult to achieve.5 Important interactive effects between measures and full optimization have been difficult to quantify, which in the long run cause poor investment decisions, misalignments, lost opportunities, and stranded benefits. This paper contends that much greater planning and operational efficiency (and resulting benefits) can be captured through robust valuation and optimization of the grid and the full integrated DSM (IDSM) portfolio, which will in turn show greater business case opportunities. Water related benefits, including embedded-energy-in-water, can also be further integrated and optimized. A critical outcome of better integration and optimization is to effectively and systematically optimize consumer engagement, with corresponding cost reductions.
