A Complete Re-Think


The zStation endpoint operating environment is a fourth generation, fully 64-bit Linux variant. zStation differs from other monolithic Linux distributions in that it is completely modular. This modularity, when coupled with the dynamic capability of policy based computing enables a highly specialized end point environment that is as much as one thousand times smaller than other Linux instantiations.

Because of its reduced size, the zStation, and its associated application workload, operates completely in volatile random-access-memory enabling system performance simply unachievable by systems executing from persistent storage. As part of its highly specialized boot and dynamic construction methods, only the required device drivers and kernel objects are present; fully supporting locally installed devices. This device support includes both OpenGL and OpenCL to fully utilize the capabilities of modern GPUs and yields stunning graphics performance.

As zStation is completely stateless and perishable, it is brand new for every session. Furthermore, the operating system itself is read-only. This combination effectively eliminates attack vectors that are typically exploited by bad actors to inject viruses or malware. By eliminating the end point as a source of ingress, external threats and attack vectors are significantly reduced and overall enterprise security is enhanced. Internal threats are mitigated through limited access to the underlying kernel and through detailed auditing and logging. In fact, as the end points are composed at runtime based on policy, an end user has no ability to install and execute any unapproved software on a zStation.

Unlike traditional VDI solutions, Beacen vSeries utilizes one hundred percent (100%) of the endpoints hardware resources for processing and memory. As such, the vSeries-based enterprise enables elastic scalability required by today’s challenging information technology environments. Each device that is added to the enterprise increases its overall capacity.

The Beacen vSeries platform is not just for desktops, this advanced operating system technology is also applicable for cloud server and Internet of Things (IoT) implementations. zStation’s size, performance, security and dynamic provisioning make it ideal for IoT devices. Its development and deployment environment and architecture make it ideal for Continuous Integration Continuous Delivery (CICD) software development lifecycles. Enterprises can be guaranteed that the running versions of applications are completely consistent across all running instances enabling true elasticity across the cloud.

Plug-and-Play

Your computer becomes a true plug-and-play appliance, capable of working "out of the box" without the need for any administrative intervention. The installer only has to plug it in; and turn it on.

Fully Responsive

As technology continues its steady migration to mobile platforms it is not enough for the application to be the only responsive element. zStation’s modularity guarantees a completely responsive environment.

Secure

vSeries represents a new level of security, reducing if not eliminating attack vectors. Since the filesystem that the operating system resides on is read-only attachment points for viruses and malware simply don’t exist.

In-Memory

zStation endpoint operating environment operates exclusively in volatile RAM not requiring local storage for any operation. This architecture provides performance not attainable by traditional computer architectures.

Stateless

Remember when your computer was new, everything was fast and it just worked, as it gets older your computer seems slower, that’s because it is, operating system decay is a real issue. Since zStation is stateless it is new evry time you login.

Consistent

Policy based computing guarantees that the system is deployed in the ideal configuration. Both operating system and application workloads are always in the optimal configuration on all systems.
