Remote Work and Studying from Home

Because of COVID-19 my wife and I work remotely. My children also study remotely. How to work from home with kids so that they don’t interrupt our work? I remember that I wondered when is it time to buy a new computer? It looks like now is the right moment to buy it. But since remote work is a temporary phenomenon caused by the pandemic, I wanted to find a temporary solution to this problem within a small budget.

COVID-19 pandemic is fierce in India and the number of infected people has reached millions. I pray for everyone in the world to get through the pandemic safely!

Cost-effective virtualization: review of Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI), NComputing and ASTER

From all sides, people talk about the transition to cloud services like cloud computing and Virtual Desktops. Many believe that most problems can be solved simply by migrating to the cloud. At the same time, the technical part, as a rule, does not cause any questions. The main doubts are centered around the cost of the solution. Financiers are interested in cash flows and the timing of the return on investment. However, it is important to choose the right cloud model and at the same time optimize the use of existing IT infrastructure.

Interview to Internet Magazine CNews about ASTER for VDI

Cloud computing, terminal access, or VDI (Virtual Desktop Infrastructure) technologies transfer the processing and storage of information from companies' existing workstations to external processing centers — clouds. But access to cloud services still requires a low-performance computer — thin client. It is possible to use the existing PCs as thin clients.

Feedback from Coders Passion company (Bangladesh)

We have recently used ASTER in our office. Aster is the ideal answer for our office’s coders’ passion. To handle the entire office, we just need one server PC. For this covid-19 scenario, ASTER is the ideal option. Whereas all of the maintenance is difficult since PC components are scarce. We only need a few things to keep the system running. It is not necessary to have a separate computer or laptop for each individual user.

Four Birds One Stone

Nowadays, the demand for PC parts has been the highest of all time, and that happened for many reasons. One of them is because the cryptocurrency business is booming, so miners are emptying their pockets on buying graphics cards along with other PC parts. Another reason is that Schools and Universities moved to online teaching for the first time. And in this rough time, me being a gamer I need a PC because I want to play games, my brother being a student he needs a PC so he can attend his classes, my other brother being a programmer he needs a PC to be able to do his work. So, what can we do now?

"Ever since I became aware of ASTER, I have used it at home as well to share our home PC with other members. ASTER has helped us at both our office and at home! We have saved money on purchasing new computers at home and at the office. ASTER is a great tool to save money, space and power consumption of the computers in offices as well as at home!

"I have seen many places such as banks, offices, game nets, … etc, which have cluttered a lot of space for multiple PCs, spending a lot of money purchasing them and for their maintenance. Imagine what they could have done, if they already knew about Aster. Things would have been much easier, for sure."

"I had the problem that I wanted to split my computer but there was no multiseat software that supported splitting the graphic card to multiple workspaces. Until I found Aster, it gets the job done and is super easy to use: Just create a virtual PC and drag and drop the mouse, keyboard and monitor in there. Now restart your computer and it just works! It had absolutely no problems detecting the peripherals and I didn't experience any crashes whatsoever. I'm currently running it with three mice, keyboards and monitors to code together with my friends for school. This gives us the option to meet up in school and use one existing computer to run multiple workstations. Instead of purchasing one PC/laptop for each one of us".

"I started up an Internet café last year in Mubende my home district in Uganda. I embarrassed desktop computers in the first case, but after studying by electrical and hardware bills for a given period of time, I found out that they not guienne compared to my monthly earnings. I started looking for a way to improve and upgrade to a cheap, better less maintenance expenses, simpler technology that can suit my situation. I downloaded a trial version of ASTER and then installed it on my HCL duo core. This has greatly simplified my system, in that every who comes to my Internet cafe is amazed with is technology and even some can't imagine who Simple it is! ASTER Software technology has greatly inspired even my customers on how I made it and many a consulting me on how it works.
Wow!!! Wow!!!.Wow!!! Thank you"
