BOSaNOVA, a developer of thin clients and network appliances, has joined hands with Aqua Connect, a provider of Mac terminal servers, to deliver desktops to Mac users.
BOSaNOVA Thin Clients now enable deployment of Mac applications via a terminal server with Aqua Connect. According to the partners, administrators can install Aqua Connect on a Mac OS X Server machine, load up all the applications that they want to access, and then make those available over the network accessible via BOSaNOVA thin clients.
Renee Mehrian, CEO of Aqua Connect, said: “With Aqua Connect Terminal Server 3.0 thin clients can connect to a Mac Leopard server via Microsoft’s Remote Desktop Protocol while centrally managing and deploying Mac applications. We have made significant efforts in assisting our customers to reduce their energy consumption and costs while providing the OS X experience.”
Martin Pladgeman, president of BOSaNOVA, said: “Our partnership offers more choices to users who need access to Mac applications, but would like the benefits of centralized management, enhanced security, reduced energy consumption and lower total cost of ownership that comes with thin client computing.”
BOSaNOVA Thin Clients are available for purchase through the company’s resellers. Its products are sold through a network of IBM and CITRIX Business Partners.
