Windows 10 computer on the Raspberry Pi: NComputing rolls out $99 RX300 Computer

Official intro:

The RX300 thin client is going to be available 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 (generally cloud or desktop virtualization environments). It relies seriously on yet another computer (its server) in order to reach its computational functions. This is different from a classic desktop PC (fat client), which is a computer created to undertake these functions alone. 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 announced a Windows OS thin client built upon the $35, debit card-size Raspberry Pi 3 Model B.

The RX300 thin client delivers access to many different Windows desktops, including Windows 10, which are streamed from a central machine by NComputing’s vSpace Pro 10 desktop virtualization software.

The software allows firms to offer a centrally controlled Windows desktop to hundreds of RX300 clients.

NComputing expresses its vCAST streaming technology permits full-screen video playback of 1080p full HD local or online video on the clients, without the necessity for the central servers to use a advanced graphics processing unit. On the other hand, subscription to this vCast technology is just incorporated for 6 months after buying the RX300.

Every single thin client has four USB version 2.0 ports, with full USB redirection and server-side device drivers to offer support for a number of peripheral devices.

The $99 RX300, which is created for institutions and SMEs, can be run as a thin client to gain access to a virtual Windows desktop or as a local Raspberry Pi Computer, running the Pi’s official Linux-based Raspbian OS.

NComputing suggests the thin clients are made to be effortless to configure and receive updates from vSpace Pro 10 servers on auto-pilot.

Young Song, NComputing CEO, said he decided to base the client around the Raspberry Pi 3 as a consequence of board’s very low cost and transferability.

Each RX300 is offered bundled with a cost-free 12 months connection license to vSpace Pro 10, with each subsequent year priced at $49 a customer.

NComputing’s vSpace Pro 10 is able 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 different 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 company must also buy the suitable Microsoft client access licenses.

The NComputing RX300 series is going to be on the market across the globe in late February through resellers.

The RX300 is not the very first thin client to be released based on the top rated Raspberry Pi. A year ago Citrix and ViewSonic unveiled the $119.99 SC-T25 Raspberry Pi 3 Thin Client.
