Reduced Effort Required for PC Management
Instant, friendly, automatic, and fun.

Concept

By keeping multiple physical PCs in a similar state through network booting technology, we aim to not only improve the quality of PC systems but also to reduce total costs of ownership. Network booting systems include the following features:

  • Restoring to the initial state when the power is turned off.
  • Performing batch updates of the initial state.
  • Updating templates of a disk image every day automatically to improve security levels.

These features not only work to stabilize the system but also to reduce both installation and operation costs significantly.

Products

Many of the solutions proposed by CO-CONV are stable systems based on Citrix Provisioning Services (PVS).
At CO-CONV, we develop proprietary technology to improve the reliability, manageability, speed, and flexibility of network booting systems that use Citrix products.

ReadCache
Through a proprietary system that includes a virtual disk cache on the terminal’s local disk, ReadCache eliminates boot storms on servers when all terminals are in operation as well as traffic congestion—common problems with network booting systems.

PVSregister
When replacing physical PCs in a network booting environment, required work can be performed in the single step of entering the host name. This minimizes terminal downtime with physical failures, improves terminal system operation rates, and reduces system operation and maintenance costs.

Other products
