Reducing Software Costs and Improving Performance with Server Based Computing
MetadataShow full item record
Classroom computing in graduate education continues to grow as more and more schools include the use of sophisticated software programs in their curriculums. Unfortunately many of these statistics and modeling applications are quite expensive and require significant processing power. The Graduate School of Business and Public Policy at the Naval Postgraduate School is using server-based computing to control software costs and improve the performance of applications. This paper describes the school’s use of Microsoft’s Remote Desktop Services to deliver applications to networked student computers. The virtual delivery of the software, which runs on a server, eliminates the need to install the software on every student computer. Depending on the software licensing structure, this can significantly reduce the required number of licenses. For some applications it can also dramatically improve performance.
