I'm currently using IBM Roaming, why do I need the panagenda Roaming solution?
The following properties of IBM roaming lead to issues that can be fixed with with our solution:
- As long as the user is using only one computer, IBM roaming exchanges very little data. When users switch to a new device though, large amounts of data have to be transferred over the network
- Only a hard-coded set of data is routed, leaving various personal settings behind
- IBM Roaming requires at least 20 MB of disk space per user
- IBM Roaming is not compatible with IBM SmartCloud
The panagenda Roaming solution offers the following advantages:
- 90% less roaming traffic
- 90% less memory requirements
- 90% less backup footprint
- IBM SmartCloud support
How can the Roaming solution help me with Notes installations on virtual clients (Citrix, WTS, VDI)?
It converts IBM Notes clients on Citrix, WTS and VDI into “local” installations. This provides you with the following advantages:
- 95% less storage space on network drives and backups
Instead of storing 40-200 MB per user on the file infrastructure, our solution only needs between 150 KB and 4 MB per user
- 95% less network traffic
Instead of constantly reading and writing on the file infrastructure, our solution reads only max. 4 MB during client startup (only for roaming) and writes an average of max. 4 MB during shutdown in order to back up the entire client configuration
- 100% less open file handles
Zero instead of eight permanently open filehandles
- 100% less file corruption
With a completely local client installation and the panagenda Roaming solution, your data remains tidy
Can I only perform upgrades with the Upgrade solution?
No. Theoretically you can us it to uninstall and install any software. This means that, in addition to upgrades (for instance, from 8.5 to 9), you can also perform updates (for instance, from 9.0.1 to 9.0.2), cross-grades (for instance, from single to multi-user clients), and even downgrades (for instance, from 9 to 8.5). Of course it’s also possible to install add-ons, fix packs, language packs, etc. You can also install third-party software (such as SSO solutions).
I have different client versions in my company, do I have to consider this when upgrading?
No. With our Upgrade solution, you only need to define how your client landscape should look at the end.
Can I change Eclipse settings with MarvelClient?
Yes. For instance, you can define that the starter is docked at client startup, the standard browser of the operating system replaces the integrated IBM Notes browser, or the feed reader is hidden in the sidebar – and of course much more!
Can I also install Eclipse Sidebar Plugins with MarvelClient?
Yes. Install, uninstall, and even configure.
