ServerFiles.com is a server software & hardware directory for Network administrators & IT professionals, listing networking & server software for Windows 2003, Windows 2000, NT and Linux; and now also listing networking hardware solutions focused on server based computing.
The vWorkspace is an enterprise virtual desktop and application delivery solution for the VMware Virtual Infrastructure and the Microsoft Windows Terminal Server platforms - embracing and extending both to deliver highly resilient and scalable on-demand desktop deployment and application delivery for enterprises worldwide.
The Quest Software vWorkspace is the only commercially available solution delivering the most comprehensive feature-set to consolidate the delivery of applications (including support for streaming) & consolidate the deployment of desktops from; terminal servers, blade or physical PCs and virtual infrastructures such as VMware VI3.
Block-IT (Application Access Control) ensures that no user can ever gain access to unauthorized (local- or network-resident) program executables regardless of their security privileges or file system rights. Using its built-in hashing algorithm, Block-IT guards against application spoofing by verifying the authenticity of each authorized application at launch time. Multiple hashes per application are allowed in a multi-server farm in order to support the piece-meal update or upgrade of a given application or O/S.
Block-IT also features a scheduler to ensure that users can only execute authorized applications within a specified schedule (time-of-day and days-of-week.) Shortly before terminating a schedule-bound application, Block-IT notifies the user of the impending termination, thus giving them the opportunity to exit the application. Finally, it terminates the running application when the ending time is reached.
Using page streaming, font embedding, property caching, and bandwidth-throttling techniques, Print-IT delivers PDF print streams. Moreover, Print-IT enables a client device, regardless of platform or operating system, to print to ANY shared network printer, regardless of make, model, or print driver. Many valuable features have been added including: Automatic partial font embedding; Intelligent font embedding; A client option to “show printer properties”; Auto-created client and network universal printers now inherit the properties of their native counterparts; Automatic support for International language fonts; Client printers can now be auto-created synchronously (before the published application launches) or asynchronously (the published application doesn’t wait for all the printers to finish auto-creating); and more...
Working in conjunction with a pre-configured (tiny) mandatory profile stored locally on the Terminal Server, MetaProfiles-IT simulates the behavior of a roaming profile by importing and exporting, upon logon and logoff, only the relevant portions of the profile that must persist across user sessions. Using the PMF Management Console, the administrator specifies all the relevant HKCU sub-keys and special folders (and sub-folders) that must persist, and sets additional important properties on a per sub-key or folder basis. Among the configurable properties is the scope, which specifies whether a particular sub-key or folder is farm-global or specific to one or more servers in the farm. Another important property specifies whether to process a particular sub-key or folder synchronously or asynchronously during the logon process.
MetaProfiles-IT can be used in conjunction with existing roaming profiles to ensure that all the relevant profile data are exported prior to reconfiguring user accounts to use a mandatory profile.
Manage-IT boasts several features designed to fully automate several time-consuming configuration tasks in a Terminal Server environment. These features include the ability to create Desktop and Start Menu program shortcuts, set backgrounds and color schemes, map drive letters to network shares, connect to shared network printers, execute scripts, manipulate the user`s HKCU registry hive, per - USER environment variables, AND lock down the USER`s Terminal Server session using stringent policy settings and undocumented hacks.
