Echo thin client management software manages all VDI and thin client devices that run DeTOS 7.1
Thin client and VDI hardware and software offerings provider Devon IT has released DeTOS 7.1, the latest version of its Devon Terminal Operating System (DeTOS).
DeTOS 7.1’s upgrades include: Devon Zero Client Feature, Wireless & VPN, RDP 7.1 Client, the latest Citrix Receiver 12, First Boot Wizard, Local Printing; and Firefox 5.0 update.
Devon Zero, a zero client configuration mode, enables thin clients to operate in a zero configuration mode through DNS environments, giving IT administrators a valuable tool for managing their users.
Thin clients running DeTOS can now detect and connect to the available wireless networks. VPN allows users to work remotely while retaining access to the devices and networks normally accessible from their workspace.
First boot wizard helps DeTOS users get up and running quicker. Network settings, connection types, terminal settings, and more can be established to prepare for remote sessions.
With the new OS, users can identify and employ locally connected printers to print from their virtual desktop as well as from the local Firefox browser and provides them with an updated version of the popular browser.
Operators can enjoy Firefox’s features and system administrators can utilize the kiosk mode to provide Internet browsing without giving desktop access to the user.
The latest Citrix client delivers the full Citrix remote desktop experience that users want and the RDP 7.1 client offers DeTOS thin clients the benefits associated with this key protocol. RDP 7.1 features an array of features that are desined to make every remote desktop experience exceptional.
All VDI and thin client devices that run DeTOS 7.1 can be managed by Devon IT’s Echo thin client management software, which automates the distribution of settings and connections to the thin client terminals, enabling system and desktop administrators to create or copy new arrangements of settings, connections, and disk images to tailor the IT environment to their needs.
Devon IT CTO Ian Geiser said Devon IT customers continue to show an increased interest in deploying thin clients for improved security and management.
"However, they don’t want to compromise on user experience. Devon IT’s support of RDP 7.1, including embedding our latest ICA 12 client, makes the Devon IT and Dell thin client devices ideal Desktop Appliances for many customers," said Geiser.
