Discover the ceBoxOS® FAQ, Wisper’s new workstations virtualisation solution! We hope that we have managed to answer of your questions, but should you have any further queries, please do not hesitate to contact us via our contact us page.
ceBoxOS® can only be installed on an Intel NUC supplied by Wisper, enabling us to guarantee the expected level of performance, including intuitive USB redirection, multimedia, bi-directional sound, etc.
The workstation works like a normal PC. It integrates your domain and your GPO for networked printers. Native USB redirection also enables the seamless management of your printers locally.
ceBoxOS® dispenses with any export display between the main site and the remote site. The VM is run locally on the remote site, for maximum performance regardless of the network link. It offers an ideal solution for users of web applications given that they have been developed for local browser execution and not export display.
With the ceBoxOS® solution, you take full control of updates to your workstations; it’s up to you to decide when to initiate the updates. In case of any problems, there is an option to revert to a previous master version. Updates are no longer a source of stress and unexpected faults!
We recommend using an antivirus in “light-agent” mode for workstation virtualisation. This mode allows you to manage antivirus signatures from a centralised server.
No, as the name implies, the cache optimiser is there to optimise the exchange of disk blocks between the Wisper cloud and your sites. However, to facilitate installations, we strongly recommend using it.
Yes, using the IGD mode, the ceBox instinctively uses the resources of the NUC graphics card.
- Roaming profile: This allows you to manage internet favourites and network disks, etc. It is also recommended for .ost files to be redirected, for example, to a file server for consultation.
- We also have the option of partitioning the ceBoxOS® disk to locally manage the profiles used on the workstation.
The solution is independent of any type of directory, it is not a prerequisite. ceBoxOS® can be seamlessly integrated into your AD or LDAP. You manage it as you would on a standard PC.
You can manage all types of OS, X86 platforms. More specifically, all windows OS as of Windows 7 and all Linux versions.
USB redirection is managed natively by the ceBoxOS® solution, as on a conventional PC.
You can use this infrastructure to manage the cache optimiser.
The optimiser is not a point of failure; as its name suggests, it is used for optimisation. If it is no longer available, the disk blocks that are not present in the ceBox cache can be retrieved directly from the Wisper cloud.
As with a conventional PC, you will no longer have access to the Internet and your file servers, but your workstation will continue to function.
Yes, as the user, you can bring an Intel NUC box home and use your internet connection to access your work environment.
