ASTER — program (and only a program!), which allows you to create several workplaces on the basis of one system unit.

ASTER is a software solution that does not use thin clients or terminal stations.

For adding additional workplaces to the system, it is enough to connect an additional monitor (TV), a keyboard, and a mouse. If necessary, each workplace can be connected to separate audio input/output devices as well as gaming controllers (joysticks). IT is also possible to use external monitors (preferably DisplayLink monitors) via USB or WIFI/LAN connections.

After installing and launching, ASTER will provide each user with their own independent desktop. ASTER is versatile and can be used in various areas - from office computers to gaming systems, while significantly saving on the cost of hardware and software for each workplace. The figure below shows an example and schematics of how ASTER works.

ASTER: 4 workplaces

Depending on the capacity of the computer and the work that will be done, several workplaces can be created (maximum 12). However, systems with a large number of workplaces (6 or more) must be tested beforehand with the set of software and hardware that you plan to use.

Testing is necessary in order to find an unforeseen error in the operation of your software and the compatibility of hardware. For this, there is a trial period (14 days)(See. Trial Period ) of ASTER which you can try out and decide whether to purchase an ASTER license or not.
