One of the challenges of managing desktops in the enterprise is how to distribute and control the applications that are installed on the guests. Virtual Bridges supports the concept of application layering, where virtualized applications or packages are brought to the desktop when the session is started by the user. In this video, we’re going to take a previously packaged application and add it to VERDE so that it is available for distribution to the users of the desktops.
Windows 10 desktop 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 for sale to firms from the end of this month.
A thin client is a compact personal computer that is purpose-built for remote access to a server (most of the time cloud or desktop virtualization environments). It depends seriously on another computer (its server) in order to satisfy its computational roles. This is distinct from a typical desktop computer (fat client), which is a PC created to handle these tasks on its own. The specific roles assumed by the server could 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 announced a Windows thin client built upon the $35, charge card-scale Raspberry Pi 3 Model B.
The RX300 thin client gives you access to an assortment of Windows desktops, including Windows 10, which can be streamed from a central machine by NComputing’s vSpace Pro 10 desktop virtualization software.
The software allows firms to provision a centrally managed Windows desktop to 100s of RX300 clients.
NComputing says its vCAST streaming technology enables full-screen replay of 1080p FHD local or web video on the clients, without the necessity for the central servers to get a dedicated GPU. In spite of this, subscription to this vCast technology is only incorporated for six months after buying the RX300.
Each and every thin client has four USB v 2.0 ports, with full USB re-direction and server-end device drivers to offer you support for a collection of add-ons.
The $99 RX300, which is created for educational facilities and SMEs, can be run as a thin client to access a virtual Windows desktop computer or as a local Raspberry Pi PC, running the Pi’s official Linux-based Raspbian Operating-system.
NComputing states the thin clients are made to be straight forward to manage and receive updates from vSpace Pro 10 servers routinely.
Young Song, NComputing CEO, said he chose to base the client around the Raspberry Pi 3 because of board’s cost-effectiveness and portability.
Each individual RX300 is offered along with a cost-free 12 months connection license to vSpace Pro 10, with each subsequent year charging $49 each consumer.
NComputing’s vSpace Pro 10 can stream a Windows desktop to a single client from Windows 7, 8.1 or 10 or even Windows Server. To stream a desktop to multiple clients, vSpace Pro 10 has 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 firm also has to spend money on the correct Microsoft client access licenses.
The NComputing RX300 series will be on the market across the globe in late February via resellers.
The RX300 is not the 1st thin client to be launched founded on the best-selling Raspberry Pi. Not too long ago Citrix and ViewSonic launched the $119.99 SC-T25 Raspberry Pi 3 Thin Client.
