Because the Zypha Virtual Desktop is delivered to your local device via a very “thin” connection the need for a fast broadband or internet connection diminishes.
The Zypha virtual desktop connection uses only 128k of your download bandwidth per user at a peak rate, and ONLY when the user is active on the desktop. This means that if you have only a 2MB internet connection this would support in the region of 8 ACTIVE desktop users all interacting with their virtual desktop together and at the same time.
In reality this bandwidth would support more desktop users as it is unlikely that everyone would be accessing their desktop at the same time. It is likely that a steady internet speed of 2MB would support an office base of 16 people or more.
One example is of an office with a simple 10MB connection and 30 desktops users, monitored consistently used less than 3mb and peaked at 3.6MB. Even when using such software as AutoCAD alongside a mixed application use office of the usual business software such as MS Office, MS Exchange Email and Sage Accounting systems.
We have often demonstrated multiple users accessing MS Office applications and Email all tethered to one mobile phone or single 3G dongle via Wi-Fi connections
Once connected to the Zypha virtual desktop the route out from the datacenter to the internet is via a fast “on net” service providing very fast connection. This results in much improved internet speeds to your virtual desktop and, consequently, to your local device.
Hard to grasp? OK, Imagine having a keyboard mouse and monitor connected by a very long wire to your desktop device in the Zypha data centre and using our very fast connection to the internet, this is in effect what the service offers, you are simply “viewing” your desktop in the data centre form your local device, , NOT transferring data up and down the connection to your local device, therefore the speed is improved and your performance increased.
This is how Zypha can help to increase your productivity, the performance of your systems and your business growth no matter what your internet speed.
