Windows 10 desktop on the Raspberry Pi: NComputing launches $99 RX300 Computer
Official intro: https://www.ncomputing.com/en/products/rxseries
The RX300 thin client is going to be offered to firms from the end of this month.
A thin client is a lightweight PC that is purpose-built for remoting into a server (usually cloud or desktop virtualization environments). It depends highly on a second computer (its server) in order to satisfy its computational jobs. This is distinctive from a common desktop computer (fat client), which is a computer designed to take on these jobs independently. The specific roles assumed by the server could differ, 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 announced a Windows OS thin client built around the $35, visa card-size Raspberry Pi 3 Model B.
The RX300 thin client provides access to a range of Windows desktops, like Windows 10, which can be streamed from a central machine by NComputing’s vSpace Pro 10 desktop virtualization software program.
The software allows firms to provision a centrally manipulated Windows desktop to 100s of RX300 clients.
NComputing claims its vCAST streaming technology allows for full-screen playback of full HD local or web video on the clients, without the requirement for the central servers to get a prime graphics processing unit. However, registration to this vCast technology is only provided for 6 months after purchasing the RX300.
Every single thin client has four USB version 2.0 ports, with full USB re-direction and server-side device drivers to supply support for a spread of peripherals.
The $99 RX300, which is intended for educational institutions and SMEs, can be run as a thin client to get into a virtual Windows computer or as a local Raspberry Pi Computer, running the Pi’s official Linux-based Raspbian Operating system.
NComputing states that the thin clients are intended to be effortless to manage and receive updates from vSpace Pro 10 servers auto-magically.
Young Song, NComputing CEO, explained he decided to base the client on the Raspberry Pi 3 on account of the board’s value for money and transferability.
Each individual RX300 is provided along with a free 1 year connection license to vSpace Pro 10, with each subsequent year costing $49 each user.
NComputing’s vSpace Pro 10 is able to stream a Windows desktop to a single client from Windows 7, 8.1 or 10 or even Windows Server. To stream a desktop to various 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 should also buy the suitable Microsoft client access licenses.
The NComputing RX300 series is going to be offered all around the world in late February via shops.
The RX300 isn’t the first thin client to be introduced based upon the excellent Raspberry Pi. Not too long ago Citrix and ViewSonic presented the $119.99 SC-T25 Raspberry Pi 3 Thin Client.
