Feature Description – Remote Desktop VM

Remote Desktop Capability for the vSpatial Workplace

FEATURE OVERVIEW

With the upcoming release, users will be able to merge the productivity and collaboration of vSpatial, with mobile VR/AR and virtual machines. Users can now access their entire virtual office from anywhere. A small mobile AR/VR headset and cloud access are the only requirements.  This combination yields a revolutionizing experience with the protection, security, and accessibility of using virtual machines.

BENEFITS

Accessibility

Laptops are great for on-the-go, but leave users wishing they had more compute power, more screens for multi-tasking, and less environmental distraction. With only a mobile VR/AR headset and the vSpatial Workplace, a user can now have the same effectiveness and productivity levels as they would if they were at their ideal setup including large multi-monitor setups. Users no longer have to worry about having their remote computer setup just right because the virtual machine is always up and always accessible.

Security

Virtual machines are a secure way of accessing information in the cloud. They add extra levels of security as well as keep your data safe from theft, loss, or damage. The vSpatial Workplace leverages the compute power of virtual machines with state-of-the-art security protocols and user-friendly access yielding a mobile work-from-anywhere experience.

Scalability

The vSpatial Workplace with Remote Desktop VMs provides scalability of compute, storage, and instances (multiple VMs).  This provides instant compute and storage upgrades with the benefit of redundancy and geographic efficiency. 

FEATURE HIGHLIGHTS

  • Selection of apps from remote virtual machine based out of Dallas, TX
  • Selection of apps from remote virtual machine based out of San Francisco
  • vSpatial native applications
  • File Navigator from VM located in Dallas
  • Spotify from VM located in San Francisco

HOW IT WORKS

The vSpatial Workplace Remote Desktop VM feature is part of the vSpatial Cloud.  (Enterprise and Service Provider cloud versions are also available — please contact vSpatial directly.)   VM creation, configuration, and monitoring are accessible either in-app or via a browser.   Operation consists of the following steps:

  • Creation
    • This mainly covers type, ownership, redundancy, language (English only at this time) and geography (USA only at this time).
  • Configuration
    • Compute size (number of virtual CPUs)
    • Storage size
    • Virtual Network (depends on subscription type)
    • Dynamically adjustable
  • Activation (Depends on subscription type)
  • Accessibility
    • Upon activation the VM appears as an active panel in the Canopy view of the vSpatial Workplace (visible above the clock in the top figure).
    • Each application window in the VM virtual monitor receives its own view as indicated in the preceding diagram.
    • Network protocols use TLS for security and are firewall friendly
