RES Software, the proven leader in dynamic desktop solutions, today announced the launch of RES Workspace Manager 2012 with enhanced capabilities designed for massive scalability, meeting the needs of RES Software’s growing and diversifying customer base.
“Today we are seeing RES Workspace Manager implementations of tens of thousands of concurrent users,” said Bob Janssen, CTO of RES Software. “And we can easily foresee a time when our enterprise accounts and managed service provider customers, especially those with multi-tenant deployments, will need even greater scalability – up to hundreds of thousands of users. With the enhanced RES Workspace Manager 2012, we’ve put that capability in place today.”
The update to RES Software’s leading enterprise desktop management solution improves the key features found in RES Workspace Manager 2011, while offering new functionality. Most notably, RES Workspace Manager 2012 now features relay server capabilities, which provide even better support for complex and disparate environments, reduce the volume of network traffic, and offer functionality not found in other desktop management solutions.
IT administrators can select from and combine three modules of RES Workspace Manager 2012 – Composition & Personalisation, Advanced Administration, and Security & Performance, with the relay server component available across all modules. The relay server acts as a middleman between the agent and the backend datastore. IT administrators can daisy-chain multiple relay servers together, which lends itself perfectly to cloud-based projects.
RES Workspace Manager 2012 also includes the functionality for IT administrators to intercept and manage applications without the need to alter shortcuts, reducing the time needed to be spent, and integration with Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager.
RES Workspace Manager 2012 transforms an organisation’s desktop infrastructure by optimising the way users consume IT services, and makes IT administrators’ jobs easier:
- Context-aware Desktop Resources: Allow users to utilise the correct mix of IT services based on location, usage needs, operating device and working environment.
- Desired User State Management: Focusing and managing the IT services actually offered instead of managing the user and their desktop will improve time efficiency and reduce costs. RES Workspace Manager 2012 allows rules to be implemented for each user’s environment, introducing predictability into the IT function.
- Delivery Technology Independence: Today’s IT environments are often a complex mix of laptops, desktops, remote desktops and virtual desktops. RES Workspace Manager 2012 offers a single management tool across numerous devices and platforms, negating the need for multiple methods to achieve the same results.
RES Workspace Manager 2012 is part of RES Dynamic Desktop Studio, which improves the Windows experience with simplified management and context-aware services supported by a highly automated infrastructure fabric and personal self-service catalogue. RES Workspace Manager 2012 is available from for evaluation at www.ressoftware.com, and customers with a valid Solution Assurance can upgrade to RES Workspace Manager 2012 easily in their live environment, free of charge.
