Educational and academic institutions are continually challenged to do more with less – provide reliable desktop computing for staff, faculty, students and labs with tightly-constrained IT and budgetary resources.
Pano System virtual desktops provide the productivity and flexibility needed to meet those challenges in settings ranging from K-12 to colleges, universities, and technical schools.
Pano Zero Clients free IT staff from the overhead of refreshing computer labs and training rooms, and let faculty concentrate on curriculum rather than technology.
Brian Walker, Network Administrator for the University of North Texas Dallas, was charged with laying a technology foundation that would support a new 10-year growth plan for the university. Transitioning from a satellite campus into a stand-alone university, the UNT Dallas will one day serve 30,000 students. In weighing today's technology decisions against long-term costs, Walker decided to replace the PCs in an existing building and forego them completely in a new facility that opened in August 2010. Instead, Walker opted for Pano Logic zero client desktop virtualization, which would enable him to eliminate time-consuming PC maintenance visits and serve a dramatically expanded computing resources with his existing help desk staff.

Little Chute Area School District replaced nearly 200 PCs in classrooms, computer labs and administrative offices with Pano Logic virtual desktops to shrink the cost of the five-year rotation cycle of PCs. This migration immediately reduced energy costs that the district expects to shrink further as it continues its move to Pano Logic’s zero clients. Because of the reduced energy use and Little Chute’s focus on green IT initiatives, the district is eligible to receive an energy grant from the state of Wisconsin.

Mark Lamson, director of technology at Westerly, a progressive school district in Rhode Island with seven schools, needed to provide desktop computing resources to 3,300 students and over 700 staff with an IT staff of just five. Leveraging of their prior VMware experience and infrastructure, he selected Pano Systems since their compact size and low power usage allowed installation even in older school buildings that lacked the space and power distribution needed for traditional PCs. Along with the benefits of improving data security and reducing the overhead of desktop support, Lamson expects the power savings alone to pay for the devices in about three years. Read More
The University of Maryland leveraged their existing VMware expertise to be up and running with Pano virtual desktops in just hours, deploying new users in as little as 10 minutes and reducing power consumption by up to 75%. The University also saved on both hardware and software license costs for out-of-lab use by students while the student got reliable access to the computing power and software needed for their courses.
