Thin clients have been around for quite some time and any day are good options to pump life into aging PCs. Devon IT's VDI Blaster is touted to be the most popular software tool that enables a PC to act as a thin client.
The patented VDI Blaster is a software suite that transforms PCs with hard drives into virtual desktops that can be managed centrally in a secure manner. Thus organizations of all sizes can take advantage of VDI Blaster and extend their capital investment of PCs, said officials.
Devon IT current and potential customers are being offered this software for free through October 31, 2012 as part of a promotion to expose customers to the power of virtual desktop computing and also allow them to test the VDI environment with very little upfront cost.
The VDI Blaster is managed by Devon IT Echo - a universal thin client management software platform, which reportedly manages all the devices that run Devon IT's VDI Blaster software. Devon IT Echo is compatible with the entire Devon IT software stack.
When a PC is tottering on its last legs, VDI Blaster can infuse fresh life by transforming it into a thin client that can still run the windows OS and all other applications. It does this by providing a simple plug-and-play solution.
The tool connects thin clients to shared services, and virtual desktops from Citrix XenDesktop, Microsoft (News - Alert), or VMware View and will help companies and organizations of all sizes realize the benefits of a VDI environment, allowing for centrally managed desktops and synchronized system updates.
By centrally managing all devices, users will reduce operational cost by up to 50 percent while implementing a leading virtual desktop infrastructure.
"Virtual desktop computing is gaining momentum in enterprises as a cost-effective, secure, and manageable way to gain the advantage of thin clients in PC environments," said Joe Makoid, president at Devon IT.
“Customers will be able to experience the value of what some of the world's largest banks and corporations are already seeing," concluded Makoid "We are committed to expanding the market potential for server-based and virtual desktop technologies, and are thrilled to share this offer."
