Mike Pagani, Senior Director of Product Marketing takes us through an introduction to our new N-series Thin Clients for Citrix HDX which deliver 100% of the amazingly rich HDX experience at approximately 1/3 the cost of typical HDX-capable PCs and traditional thin client devices. Powered by our third-generation Numo™ 3 System-on-Chip (SoC), N-series devices support and simplify XenDesktop, XenApp, and VDI-in-a-Box desktop and application virtualization deployments with full HD video while using less than 5 watts of power.
Windows 10 personal computer on the Raspberry Pi: NComputing unveils $99 RX300 Computer
Official intro: https://www.ncomputing.com/en/products/rxseries
The RX300 thin client will be offered to firms from the end of this month.
A thin client is a easily portable computer that is purpose-built for remote access to a server (typically cloud or desktop virtualization environments). It is dependent greatly upon an additional computer (its server) to meet its computational tasks. This is different from a typical desktop computer (fat client), which is a PC made to tackle these functions on it’s own. The specific roles assumed by the server could differ, from hosting a shared set of virtualized applications, a shared desktop stack or virtual desktop, to data processing and file storage on the client’s or user’s behalf.
NComputing has released a Windows OS thin client built on the $35, mastercard-dimension Raspberry Pi 3 Model B.
The RX300 thin client gives access to a variety of Windows desktops, such as Windows 10, which can be streamed from a central machine by NComputing’s vSpace Pro 10 desktop virtualization program.
The software allows firms to provision a centrally managed Windows desktop to many hundreds of RX300 clients.
NComputing declares its vCAST streaming technology enables full-screen playback of 1080p FHD local or on-line video on the clients, without the necessity for the central servers to use a dedicated GPU. Then again, subscription to this vCast technology is just bundled for half a year after paying for the RX300.
Each and every thin client has 4 USB version 2.0 ports, with full USB redirection and server-side device drivers to give support for a variety of peripherals.
The $99 RX300, which is aimed towards institutions and small middle businesses, can be run as a thin client to get into a virtual Windows desktop or as a local Raspberry Pi Computer, running the Pi’s official Linux-based Raspbian Operating-system.
NComputing claims the thin clients are created to be quick to configure and receive updates from vSpace Pro 10 servers on auto-pilot.
Young Song, NComputing CEO, mentioned he chose to base the client on the Raspberry Pi 3 due to the board’s affordable price and flexibility.
Each individual RX300 is provided included with a cost-free twelve months connection license to vSpace Pro 10, with each subsequent year pricing $49 a consumer.
NComputing’s vSpace Pro 10 can easily stream a Windows desktop to an individual client from Windows 7, 8.1 or 10 or maybe Windows Server. To stream a desktop to several clients, vSpace Pro 10 needs to be running on Windows Server 2016, Windows Server 2012 R2 U1, Windows Server 2012, Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1, Windows Multipoint Server 2011 or Windows Multipoint Server 2012-the enterprise should also buy the correct Microsoft client access licenses.
The NComputing RX300 series will be attainable all over the world in late February thru resellers.
The RX300 isn’t the 1st thin client to be introduced on top of the excellent Raspberry Pi. Not too long ago Citrix and ViewSonic released the $119.99 SC-T25 Raspberry Pi 3 Thin Client.
