Workspace

Concept

Workspace is a cloud computing-based desktop service that outperforms personal computers (PCs) and the conventional Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) solution.

Workspace provides the same configurations (including vCPUs, GPUs, memory, and disks) as those of PCs and Windows OSs. Its familiarity ensures that you can use Workspace like using your own PCs.

Different from the conventional local VDI solution, Workspace does not require high investment or a long deployment period. Workspace can automatically handle heavy deployment tasks and provide hosting services.

Workspace supports access from multiple devices, including computers running Windows OSs, iPads, iPhones, and Android smart devices (For details, see Software ClientMobile Terminal). With Workspace, you can save and obtain files, and use applications anytime and anywhere, implementing mobile office.

Procedure

After you apply for Workspace, a secure and exclusive Workspace infrastructure server (For details, see Infrastructure Server) will be deployed and a dedicated elastic IP address used for accessing Workspace will be allocated to you.

You can create an active directory (AD) domain (For details, see AD Management Server) on the cloud or use your local Microsoft AD domain when you apply for the Workspace service.

With Workspace, you can effortlessly create and configure desktops (For details, see Desktop). Workspace provides packages of multiple types and supports disk configurations, ensuring secure and simple user operations. After you apply for the Workspace service and desktops are successfully created, the system will notify the end users by email.
