This solution was best suited to meet the organisation s technology requirements because of the excellent multimedia capabilities, ease of use and the ability to remotely manage devices across multiple dispersed locations.
The NComputing solution is now deployed in 25 schools and allows Ma arif to run one standard version of an operating system, which is accessed by multiple users, from a central vSpace server in each lab. A standardised desktop, as well as a set of applications are delivered to students and teachers in each of the computer labs. This enables Ma arif to control and support all computer labs centrally, improving speed and effectiveness of maintenance work and minimising any downtime.
