This Site is now Equipped with 87 Stations and 120 Clients, That is used to Periodic, Preinternship, Osce, PMP and Basic Science Exams.
Virtual technology is used in electronic examination site. The advantages of using virtual technology include making the most of organizational hardware, resources, improving efficiency, accumulation of organizational services in one or a few servers, speeding the implementation of service and thus improving management; maintenance and supporting the systems, integration of organizational hardware resources, betterment of resource use and reduction of servers and database cost, saving energy, and reducing maintenance cost.
