For virtual desktop environments and hardware accelerated remote workstations
Devon IT, a thin client hardware and software provider, has launched TC10 zero client model to address the needs of users requiring high-powered virtual desktop functionalities.
The company said that the new model uses the PC-over-IP (PCoIP) protocol and is suitable for virtual desktop environments as well as hardware accelerated remote workstations. It does not embody application OS, CPU or processor and offers flexibility and management benefits for both IT administrators and users.
Devon IT claims that the new TC10 with an integrated Teradici PCoIP processor enables users at enterprises and small-scale companies to manage desktops centrally and allows delivery of images and applications that rival PC performance directly from the data centre.
In addition, companies can improve IT efficiency and reduce associated costs with the flexibility of centralised client management, storage, and processing from a secure data centre. The minimal footprint of the TC10 eliminates the need to equip remote users with a client device, Devon IT said.
Stephane Verdy, CTO of Devon IT, said: “Powerful new zero client solutions like the TC10 deliver high-end user experiences that rival traditional desktop PCs, eradicating the performance obstacle but also drastically improving the utility for IT personnel.
“The cost, management, and security benefits of managing virtual desktops centrally have proven to be very attractive to companies of all sizes, and we believe adding rich media and performance with zero client computing fills a growing segment in virtual desktop deployment.”
