GO-Global Cloud, available for immediate delivery, consists of three components: GO-Global Host, GO-Global Cloud Server, and GO-Global Cloud Client.
• GO-Global Host
virtualizes and stores existing applications, allowing users to run them from a distance as through they were installed locally. GO-Global Windows Host 4, available since July 2010, virtualizes Windows applications. GO-Global UNIX Host 4, to be announced in the near future, will virtualize UNIX and Linux applications. (GO-Global for UNIX 2.2 is currently shipping as a standalone solution for UNIX/Linux application virtualization.)
• GO-Global Cloud Server
, available for immediate delivery, provides a high-availability, secure gateway to GO-Global Hosts. It provides administrators with controls to monitor and manage clusters of GO-Global Hosts supporting thousands of users. The controls and capabilities can be accessed through the GO-Global Cloud Server’s user interface, or alternatively through the GO-Global Web API for easy integration of applications and workflows.
• GO-Global Cloud Client
, available for immediate delivery, provides a refreshed, more intuitive user interface. Offered as a native client or a Web browser plug-in, GO-Global Cloud Client is used by local and remote users to access GO-Global Hosts, and by administrators to manage GO-Global Cloud Server. The Client runs on Windows, UNIX, Linux, and Mac OS X computers, as well as portable devices. Alternatively, users and administrators can connect from any platform by simply using a Web browser that supports Adobe Flash 9 or later.
GO-Global Cloud Benefits
• Access from anywhere
. Applications and documents can be accessed from any location, even across firewalls and proxy servers. Users can view, edit and share documents whether or not they have the corresponding application
installed on their computer or mobile device.
• Scalability and load balancing
. GO-Global Cloud provides high-availability load balancing and centralized management of large GO-Global Host server farms.
. User connections are enabled via a multi-layered security system, including smart card authentication support. Applications and documents never leave the secure GO-Global Host.
. Administrators can set user and group permissions and publish different applications to different users.
• Flexibility and customization
. The GO-Global Web API allows developers to integrate hosted applications with workflow applications without the use of the GO-Global Cloud user interface. They can programmatically start sessions, authenticate users, create user-private workspaces, move files to and from a workspace, start and stop applications, and monitor server usage.
• Private virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI)
. Users and administrator can see a full desktop view of the Host in a private session. Administrators can manage the Hosts using a desktop view. When using VMs, they can configure GO-Global Cloud as a simple VDI, application delivery, and document sharing solution — all in one product.
