System Virtualization

A system disk is a bootable disk that can be used to start up a computer. It is a disk on which a system’s operating system is stored, and from which end-users starts their computing. In standard computing, this system disk is placed inside a PC, and an operating system must be installed on it. On a site with more computers, installation and management of these system disks are time consuming and painful. Each system disk may even become infected by viruses and malwares. Softonnet's system disk virtualization enables end-users to boot up their computers with remote virtual disk on a server. Client computers don’t require local hard disk to start up their computers, and installations of operating systems on thousands of computers are unnecessary. System disks are also reliable and free from any kind of infections, because they are only managed and controlled by a professional IT specialist on a central server.

  1. The administrator build the disk image from existing system disks.
  2. The system disk images can then be stored on the server.
  3. When the users turn on their computers, the server streams the system disk images.
  4. As the streaming begins, the users' system-disk-less computer will boot up as if the system disks are physically attached.
