Cloud Printing

Cloud Printing

Today Cloud computing is widely deployed by large global and small local organizations alike, whereby hundreds or thousands of users, devices and printers, often across locations and geographical divides are connected with the data center over the Cloud. Mobile users may need to print from multiple locations - in different parts of a building, in a branch office or from another country, using corporate or their own devices. To enable fast and reliable cloud based printing in such complex environments, IT has to overcome many issues. They include new printer and driver installations, printer management and driver updates, printer mapping, and securing sensitive data as the print data stream makes its journey from the user device to printer across the Cloud.

UniPrint Infinity™ provides a cloud printing solution that simplifies intra-organizational printing structures to align the printers, drivers, devices and users within the system. The software comes with user-authenticated pull printing that improves document security; and a high availability with load balancing capabilities setup that allows full redundancy to maximize printing uptime, all of which are key to driving your enterprise Cloud success.

All Clients Can Print to Any Printer, Anywhere Over the Cloud

Through UniPrint Print Server, UniPrint Infinity eliminates the need to install client software on user devices enabling clientless or zero client printing. UniPrint’s all-client capability promotes reliable and fast printing no matter where you are working across the Cloud. Users are able to enjoy efficient cloud printing through their mobile devices, with the ability to print seamlessly over RDP, PCoIP or ICA.

UniPrint Infinity supports any printer make or model. Print commands sent through UniPrint Virtual Print Queue (VPQ) to busy or non-functioning printers can be redirected to other available printers for immediate printing, minimizing unnecessary work disruption caused by a printer breakdown.

UniPrint Infinity offers full redundancy through the high availability (HA) setup, providing an effortless alternative to Microsoft Cluster Services.

The result: All users connecting to any platform can print from any client device to any printer at any time in any location across geographies.

Simple to Manage and Easy to Deploy

No more “driver mess” or print queue errors! At the core of UniPrint Infinity is our patented, PDF-based Universal Printer Driver (UPD). UniPrint™ UPD replaces all manufacturer printer drivers on the application server, negating the need to manage multiple printer drivers in any computing environment, be it Citrix, Microsoft RDS, VMware View-based. In addition, with the UniPrint PrintPAL printer mapping utility, administrators can set up remote print servers without site-to-site VPNs. With printer incompatibility issues out of the way and simpler printer setup and deployment, printer management is almost effortless.

Improve Printing Speed over the Cloud

UniPrint Infinity is PDF based. By deploying UniPrint Print Servers in remote locations, print spool files will be converted and compressed by over 90%, providing speedier printing with the added benefit of less network bandwidth usage.

Improve End User Printing Experience and Reduce Costs

UniPrint Infinity is a true UPD that supports any printer make or model. This gives organizations more flexibility when it comes to choosing new printers or accommodating existing printers in a cloud computing environment. Rather than dictating what printers your end users must standardize to print, UniPrint allows your clients (end users) to choose printers based on their specific business requirements, pick the “best-of-breed” hardware from any vendor, and enjoy the best end user experience in printing.
