Devon IT Adds Features to its PC Repurposing Tool

Devon IT has announced an updated version of the powerful thin client software tool. The new VDI Blaster version 7.2.2 now includes several features that were previously available on expensive standalone thin client devices.

VDI Blaster enables PCs to act as a thin client and convert them into secure and centrally manageable virtual desktop. This capability not only enables businesses of all sizes to benefit from thin client computing, but it also extends their capital investment of PCs.

Version 7.2.2 features internal wireless support, an updated graphical user interface (GUI) and First Boot Wizard as well as new access clients. All these enhancements in VDI Blaster are made based on the feedback from VDI Blaster customers. This strategic move has ensured that any laptop, PC and aging thin terminal can be upgraded to a new and manageable thin client device.

“The VDI Blaster's new functionality and GUI interfaces make the process of repurposing PCs easy and less time consuming,” said Devon IT president Joe Makoid. “Our industry is moving to a device agnostic model and the new VDI Blaster facilitates this easily and cost effectively.”

VDI Blaster is especially good for PCs that are reaching the end of their useful life as this tool transforms them into a thin client with the ability to run Windows OS and applications. PCs can also return to their previous state if required with Devon IT’s VDI Blaster that reduces the risk of switching to a completely virtualized IT architecture.

Because VDI Blaster enables centrally-managed desktops its cuts down risk and allows for synchronized system updates.

"Traditional desktops typically need to be refreshed or replaced every three or four years, but IT departments can now extend the life of their company's PCs by converting them into thin clients," added Makoid.

Devon IT offers thin client software, hardware, and virtual desktop solutions. Its products offer users greater IT security, enhanced manageability, improved reliability, and lower costs.  The company was in news last month for joining hands with Acer (News - Alert) to host webinar focusing on thin client and VDI for K-12.
