Wisper 360 VS ChromeOS : Le Comparatif Complet

Wisper vs Chrome

Virtualization and management of workstations are two key technologies that can help companies improve their efficiency and productivity. Virtualization allows multiple operating systems and applications to run on a single machine, which can reduce infrastructure and operating costs. Desktop management allows companies to control and manage their employees' workstations, which can improve safety and productivity.

Today, in the business world, two modes of operation stand out. In the first case, companies opt for environments based on well-known distributions such as Windows, Mac OS, ChromeOS and Linux. These distributions are managed using tools such as Microsoft Endpoint Management (e.g. SCCM), Ivanti Lan Desk, MDT, WSUS, especially for Windows systems. In the second case, companies are turning to virtual environments or virtual applications, exploiting solutions such as Windows 365, Vmware Horizon, Wisper 360 and Citrix. Here, two distinct technological approaches are emerging, one based on a classic distribution and the other on virtualization or containerization tools. This duality within the enterprise IT ecosystem offers crucial choices for resource and application management.

In this article, we will see how ChromeOS and Wisper 360 are reflected in this new ecosystem.


What are the distinctions between Wisper 360 and ChromeOS? What are the strengths and weaknesses of each solution? How to choose between Wisper 360 and ChromeOS to best meet your requirements?


Wisper 360 and ChromeOS: Two Distinct Approaches to Operating Systems

ChromeOS is an operating system developed and designed by Google based on Linux. It uses the Google Chrome web browser as its primary user interface and integrates a library of web applications. Unlike the open source project associated with it, ChromiumOS, ChromeOS can only be installed on machines built by Google and its partners, such as Chromebooks or Chromeboxes. 


Wisper 360 is a versatile and customizable solution, based on a prepared and secure environment. Designed for easy and secure desktop virtualization and management, Wisper 360 works on a wide range of devices, including desktops and laptops.

Moreover, it is a hybrid product which integrates part of the technology into the distribution installed on your computer, while the other part is in the cloud. 

Wisper 360 has the ability to position itself in both worlds by providing a virtualized Windows or Linux environment, while offering the possibility of having containerized applications such as a web browser or an office suite. What, in itself, offers the flexibility to choose between the virtual environment and the application portal.


Hardware Flexibility, Virtualization and Other Wisper Benefits 

ChromeOS is only available on Chromebooks, except for ChromeOS Flex clients. This is a version of ChromeOS that can be installed on desktops and laptops other than Chromebooks. However, Wisper 360 has very strong hardware compatibility, and can be installed on a wide choice of desktop or laptop with the minimum required configuration. 

In addition, Wisper 360 offers support to companies wishing to migrate to the full Web while still having a considerable number of heavy applications. It’s very simple, Wisper 360 gives its customers the opportunity to simultaneously maintain a Windows environment with heavy clients and an application portal.

Another advantage for Wisper, it allows the deployment and management of several virtualized environments on a single machine, without resorting to a cloud infrastructure or service. This feature provides freedom and efficiency in developing, testing and running applications, without relying on an external infrastructure.

To go further, Wisper 360 offers specific features that make it more suitable than ChromeOS for certain usage scenarios. It perfectly meets the needs of non-SaaS application domains and environments requiring virtualization or “Read Only” mode.

ChromeOS VS. Wisper 360: Read Only and Security Mode 

ChromeOS does not allow running native virtual machines for client-server applications that have been developed for a Windows or Mac environment. It does not offer read-only mode for scenarios involving multiple users or for shared access devices, but it does offer a guest mode and allows secure support for multiple users.

With Wisper 360, you get a better adaptability to SaaS applications, such as client-server software or other professional software. Virtualization of your machines is done locally on Wisper 360, which gives you the opportunity to create a Master containing the professional software needed by your teams. On the other hand, the read-only mode in Wisper 360 is perfectly suited for multi-agent use cases or open access devices. In other words, Wisper 360 is capable of providing read-only or persistent virtual environments to meet the needs of all businesses.

Yet another significant advantage, in case of attack or major problem occurred on your machines, Wisper 360 offers the possibility of returning to the previous version with ease and security. In the context of a training center activity for example, in the event of a viral attack that has spread to all the stations of your computer room; you have the opportunity to make a Rollback with one clic on all your machines running on Wisper 360! The deployment of the new virtual machine executed locally is done in a few minutes, and in a few minutes, you have a training room with brand new PCs!

In summary, Wisper 360 stands out for its ability to meet the requirements of businesses and professionals, offering notable advantages compared to ChromeOS. Wisper 360 is particularly suitable for users who work with non-SaaS applications, which means they can run software essential to their business. In addition, Wisper 360 allows native virtualization, facilitating the creation and management of multiple environments on the same machine, without the need for cloud infrastructure.

Another major asset of Wisper 360 is its function Read Only, which enhances system security and stability, especially useful in professional environments. 

However, ChromeOS is primarily focused on using cloud-based applications and is optimized for Chromebooks. Although it is suitable for certain needs, it offers a different approach and is more suited to different use cases.

The choice between Wisper 360 and ChromeOS will largely depend on the specific needs of the user or company. For those who work with on-premises applications, need native virtualization, demand a higher level of security, and also want to have cloud technology at their disposal, Wisper 360 is the best choice.
