Windows 10 computer on the Raspberry Pi: NComputing launches $99 RX300 Computer
Official introduction: 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 computer that is purpose-built for remote access to a server (normally cloud or desktop virtualization environments). It is dependent to a great extent on one more computer (its server) in order to meet its computational tasks. This is not the same as a regular desktop computer (fat client), which is a PC designed to perform these tasks independently. 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 presented a Windows thin client built on the $35, charge card-sized Raspberry Pi 3 Model B.
The RX300 thin client delivers use of various Windows desktops, which include Windows 10, which are streamed from a central machine by NComputing’s vSpace Pro 10 desktop virtualization software.
The software allows firms to supply a centrally manipulated Windows desktop to hundreds of RX300 clients.
NComputing promises its vCAST streaming technology allows for full-screen playback of full HD local or on-line video on the clients, without the necessity for the central servers to possess a dedicated graphics processing unit. Even so, registration to this vCast technology is just bundled for half a year after buying the RX300.
Every single thin client has 4 USB version 2.0 ports, with full USB re-direction and server-side device drivers to allow support for a variety of peripheral devices.
The $99 RX300, which is targeted at schools and SMEs, can be run as a thin client to reach a virtual Windows computer or as a local Raspberry Pi PC, running the Pi’s official Linux-based Raspbian Operating system.
NComputing states that the thin clients are built to be very simple to configure and receive updates from vSpace Pro 10 servers auto-magically.
Young Song, NComputing chief executive officer, stated he decided to base the client around the Raspberry Pi 3 on account of the board’s affordability and flexibility.
Every RX300 comes included with a free 12 months connection license to vSpace Pro 10, with each subsequent year costing $49 for each customer.
NComputing’s vSpace Pro 10 can stream a Windows desktop to an individual client from Windows 7, 8.1 or 10 or even Windows Server. To stream a desktop to different clients, vSpace Pro 10 must 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 purchase the proper Microsoft client access licenses.
The NComputing RX300 series will be on the market across the globe in late February through shops.
The RX300 is not the very first thin client to be introduced founded upon the best-selling Raspberry Pi. Not too long ago Citrix and ViewSonic introduced the $119.99 SC-T25 Raspberry Pi 3 Thin Client.
