Windows 10 personal computer on the Raspberry Pi: NComputing comes out $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 lightweight personal computer that is purpose-built for remoting into a server (commonly cloud or desktop virtualization environments). It is dependent significantly on one more computer (its server) to satisfy its computational functions. This is different from a regular desktop computer (fat client), which is a computer made to handle these functions independently. The specific roles assumed by the server can vary, 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 brought out a Windows thin client built upon the $35, visa card-dimension Raspberry Pi 3 Model B.
The RX300 tiny computer delivers use of a wide range of Windows desktops, which include Windows 10, which can be streamed from a central machine by NComputing’s vSpace Pro 10 desktop virtualization program.
The software allows firms to provide a centrally operated Windows desktop to hundreds of RX300 clients.
NComputing promises its vCAST streaming technology makes it possible for full-screen play-back of 1080p full HD local or web based video on the clients, without needing the central servers to get a first-rate graphics processing unit. However, registration to this vCast technology is only incorporated for six months time after purchasing the RX300.
Every single thin client has four USB version 2.0 ports, with full USB redirection and server-side device drivers to allow support for a huge selection of peripheral devices.
The $99 RX300, which is aimed towards educational facilities and small middle businesses, can be run as a thin client to reach a virtual Windows desktop or as a local Raspberry Pi PC, running the Pi’s official Linux-based Raspbian Operating-system.
NComputing suggests the thin clients are meant to be straightforward to manage and receive updates from vSpace Pro 10 servers auto-magically.
Young Song, NComputing chief executive officer, said he decided to base the client around the Raspberry Pi 3 because of the board’s value for money and flexibility.
Every RX300 is offered along with a free 1 year connection license to vSpace Pro 10, with each subsequent year costing $49 each customer.
NComputing’s vSpace Pro 10 has the power to stream a Windows desktop to an individual client from Windows 7, 8.1 or 10 or even Windows Server. To stream a desktop to multiple clients, vSpace Pro 10 is required 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 must also buy the correct Microsoft client access licenses.
The NComputing RX300 series will be on the market internationally in late February thru shops.
The RX300 is not the first thin client to be launched based upon the best-selling Raspberry Pi. During the past year Citrix and ViewSonic introduced the $119.99 SC-T25 Raspberry Pi 3 Thin Client.
