Lets operators can enjoy Firefox’s features and system administrators can utilise the kiosk mode
Thin client, VDI hardware and software offerings provider Devon IT has come out with the latest release of its VDI Blaster software, DeTOS 7.1, which comes with the latest version of its Devon Terminal Operating System (DeTOS).
Devon IT VDI Blaster is a software tool that enables a PC to act as a thin client, converts PCs into secure and centrally manageable desktop appliances, enabling businesses and organisations of all sizes to realise the benefits of thin client computing and extends capital investment in PCs.
DeTOS 7.1 on VDI Blaster features include wireless & VPN, First Boot Wizard, local printing, Firefox 5.0 update and Citrix Receiver 12.
PCs running VDI Blaster can now detect and connect to the available wireless networks and the latest Citrix client delivers the full Citrix remote desktop experience that users want.
The First Boot Wizard helps DeTOS users run faster and the network settings, connection types, terminal settings, and more can be established to prepare for remote sessions.
Further, users can identify and employ locally connected printers to print from their virtual desktop as well as from the local Firefox browser, operators can enjoy Firefox’s features and system administrators can utilise the kiosk mode to provide Internet browsing without giving desktop access to the user.
Devon IT president Joe Makoid said Dell shows a similar commitment to desktop virtualisation by advancing VDI and other virtual and hosted desktop technologies with their thin client offerings.
"We are committed to expanding the market potential for server-based and virtual technologies in order to help continue to build this momentum towards VDI infrastructures," said Makoid.
