One of the most effective ways enterprises make a positive impact on the environment is by switching away from pricey, power consuming hardware to the Cloud. So, In celebration of Earth Day next week, here are all the ways Stratodesk software enables green computing in your deployment!
Cloud Computing is Green Computing
Ultimately, Cloud computing is green computing. Here’s why:
- Virtualization: Virtualization enables businesses to use a single server to run multiple operating system instances. This reduces the number of physical hardware components needed inside the datacenter.
- Automation Compounds Benefits to Green Computing: Did you know that Cloud computing based infrastructure uses automation to maximize efficiency and drive down wasted power? Automation has gone a long way in recent years to ensure green computing can be a reality for IT organizations. When resources are used less, automation can power those resources down, and kick them back up again when needed.
- Flexible Pricing Enables Scale without Waste: Of course the last major benefit inherent to Cloud computing enabling green computing is the fact that enterprises can leverage Cloud computing without waste. Enterprises can leverage the resources they need when they need it, and shut it off easily when they no longer need it.
Stratodesk Delivers Green Computing as an All in One Solution for Cloud Endpoints Deployments
When you use Stratodesk with your Cloud deployment, non-traditional endpoints become enterprise ready. For example, Stratodesk software gives you the choice of being able to run on Raspberry Pi, Jetson Nano, Intel NUC endpoints and more. By powering these devices, Stratodesk software gives you the freedom to lower daily power consumption (see above regarding server virtualization) by eliminating the need for high powered resources and enabling users to take advantage of more intense desktop environments that are now leveraged in the Cloud.
Additionally supporting the broadest range of x86 and x64 based endpoints means you can redeploy existing hardware providing your users with a new modern operating system to leverage the latest features your VDI platform has to offer. This will help reduce your organization’s waste and component recycling, reducing dependencies and impact on local landfills.
Stratodesk Software Optimized for Graphics Intensive Users
The greener tomorrow has finally arrived! Optimized to deliver Teradici PCoIP for seamless packet transfer delivered to ClearCube hardware with NoTouch means you can have the same EUC experience of a Mac or PC at a fraction of the power consumed.
Additionally, NoTouch with ClearCube, or NoTouch on Teradici, enables high end content creators or graphics intensive users to reduce power consumption. Historically, to handle this sort of content it would have taken massive computer demands (upwards of 500-1000+ WATT consumption). You never know when or where inspiration will strike next, so with NoTouch Cloud, you can enable this experience at any time where ever your users need or choose to be.
Bring Your Own Device Empowers Remote Work
What are the benefits of bring your own device? BYOD helps enable work from home. Employees and contractors can use their own devices, at home or on the go, to access the data and applications they need. Anytime, anywhere. This is done safely and securely via a combination of your preferred VDI solution and Stratodesk software. Simply boot Stratodesk from a USB drive on any device. This is called “live boot” and does not harm the underlying OS. Enabling BYOD eliminates the need for powering both work and home devices, as well as the power consumption that comes with it, and reduces the volume of hardware that will inevitably need to be disposed.
Streamline Remote Work by Powering x86 and ARM Devices
Thanks to Stratodesk software, system administrators can empower their workers to skip the commute. Organizations have even more options to empower flexible work environments. IT managers can, for example, ship low cost devices, like the Raspberry Pi, powered by Stratodesk, to workers. When powered by Stratodesk software, the Raspberry Pi comes with the latest Clients from VDI/Cloud providers. This means that the Raspberry Pi does not require IT help to be set up. Your workers simply boot the device, and start working.
Remote workers can use these devices to securely access their work environment wherever, and whenever.
PC Repurposing Eliminates Waste
Replacing devices is not only expensive, it also creates waste. What do you do with the dozens, hundreds, or even thousands of PCs you would replace with Thin Clients? Those PCs end up in landfills, and also expend resources while they are transported from your offices to waste management facilities.
Stratodesk software removes unnecessary waste with PC Repurposing. Instead of overhauling your entire fleet, Stratodesk software lets you leverage your existing endpoints. This means longer life cycles for devices and greater sustainability. What might be considered legacy devices can be refreshed with Stratodesk software, bringing in the latest VDI connectors and letting users take advantage of the latest features of VDI.
These are just a few ways Stratodesk software and innovation is making the world a better, cleaner place. Get the free trial today and try it for yourself!
