Windows 10 desktop 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 for sale to firms from the end of this month.
A thin client is a easily portable personal computer that is purpose-built for remoting into a server (generally cloud or desktop virtualization environments). It depends heavily upon an additional computer (its server) in order to satisfy its computational jobs. This is different from a typical desktop computer (fat client), which is a PC which is designed to carry out these tasks by itself. The specific roles assumed by the server can vary greatly, from hosting a shared group 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 unveiled a Windows OS thin client built upon the $35, mastercard-scale Raspberry Pi 3 Model B.
The RX300 tiny computer gives you access to quite a few Windows desktops, for example, Windows 10, which are streamed from a central machine by NComputing’s vSpace Pro 10 desktop virtualization software program.
The software allows firms to provision a centrally controlled Windows desktop to hundreds of RX300 clients.
NComputing promises its vCAST streaming technology permits full-screen replay of full HD local or online video on the clients, without needing the central servers to have a excellent GPU. Then again, membership to this vCast technology is only provided for six months time after paying for the RX300.
Every thin client has 4 USB v 2.0 ports, with full USB re-direction and server-side device drivers to make available support for a spread of peripheral devices.
The $99 RX300, which is created for educational facilities and small middle businesses, can be run as a thin client to reach 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 rather simple to set up and receive updates from vSpace Pro 10 servers automatically.
Young Song, NComputing CEO, mentioned he decided to base the client around the Raspberry Pi 3 due to board’s affordability and mobility.
Each and every RX300 is provided bundled with a cost-free 12 months connection license to vSpace Pro 10, with each subsequent year costing $49 every customer.
NComputing’s vSpace Pro 10 can easily stream a Windows desktop to a single client from Windows 7, 8.1 or 10 or 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 corporation must also pay for the appropriate Microsoft client access licenses.
The NComputing RX300 series will be obtainable around the world in late February thru resellers.
The RX300 is not the 1st thin client to be released founded upon the recognized Raspberry Pi. A year ago Citrix and ViewSonic released the $119.99 SC-T25 Raspberry Pi 3 Thin Client.
