ZeroDesktop, Inc., developerof next-generation Web Desktop solutions for public and private cloud computing, today announced ZeroPC Private Cloud(www.zeropc.com/schools ) providing education and businesses serving 1,000+ concurrent users per entry-server or 3,000+ on an advanced-server with a full-function, cost-effective virtual desktop. For schools that don’t have a server infrastructure, ZeroPC also provides on-demand hosting service. ZeroDesktop will demonstrate ZeroPC at ISTE 2011, Philadelphia (Booth #2760).
The ZeroPC Private Cloud (previously Startforce) provides a “disposable” virtual desktop for the education market. ZeroPC enables IT administrators to setup general kiosk-mode desktops with predefined look-and-feel, applications, files and programs that students access in classrooms, labs or libraries without requiring user login credentials, and that can be shared by many users. If a student accidentally deletes desktop icons, files or folders, or modifies desktop settings, the desktop can be reset to its original format by simply refreshing the browser tab to dispose of the changes.
