Managing Windows access to VDI with Praim Agile

An often-overlooked aspect of migrating to a remote desktop computing infrastructure is the existing desktops. Some installations plan and develop a hardened Windows build with restricted capabilities and the bare minimum of functionality. Other implementations look to repurposing software, like Praim’s ThinOX4PC to convert PCs into thin clients, either as an interim solution prior to migration to dedicated thin client hardware devices or as part of a strategy relating to asset longevity. Unfortunately, there are as many implementations where this final step is not considered at all and involves little more than an icon created on the PCs desktop. Praim have recently released Agile 2.0 to help with connections from… Read More »

How to bring control and business continuity to your IT department?

Companies worldwide have used millions of distributed PCs as workplaces for their employees, often unmanaged and out of control by the IT department. As we know, especially in recent years of crisis, the IT budget is limited and companies are realising that without the renewal of digital processes their competitiveness is at risk. What are the solutions? It is increasingly evident that, used in this context, the PC is no longer a suitable device, at least not as it has been used until today. We could equip employees with alternative devices such as thin clients, designed to ensure IT managers control and simple and secure access to cloud infrastructure, but… Read More »

Distributed thin client management: The remote site conundrum and the elephant in the room?

Why should remote management of thin clients be complex? The benefits of thin client have centred on simplicity and ease of deployment, these have long been touted as the salient points that make the technology so compelling, so where is the issue? This message has been the rallying cry for the thin clients since their initial release in the 1990’s, however, the reality is that these two strengths are today only part of the whole picture.

What are the main advantages of thin client strategy? – Praim interview with Sacha Thomet

– What are the main advantages of thin client strategy? Like already said, to save money. Also, thin clients are easier to manage, easier to maintain and, not to forget, they have a lower power consumption. But I also say that a pure thin client strategy is not sufficient, you probably still have some employees who want to have the possibility to work offline. In my point of view, a Bring Your Own Device strategy (BYOD) is a good addition to a full thin client strategy.
