Thin Clients, Zero Clients, Android Stations and Cloud Clients
Since 1999, Thinclient.org has been reporting the thin client computing market as well as the ChromeBook, Zero Client, Android clients, Pi Raspberry Clients and Thick Client market. Generally the cloud computing market since it started with companies such as Citrix back in the late 80s.
A thin client is a lightweight[vague] computer that has been optimized for establishing a remote connection with a server-based computing environment. The server does most of the work, which can include launching software programs, performing calculations, and storing data. This contrasts with a fat client or a conventional personal computer; the former is also intended for working in a client–server model but has significant local processing power, while the latter aims to perform its function mostly locally.
Thin client hardware generally supports a keyboard, mouse, monitor, jacks for sound peripherals, and open ports for USB devices (e.g., printer, flash drive, webcam). Some thin clients include legacy serial or parallel ports to support older devices such as receipt printers, scales or time clocks. Thin client software typically consists of a graphical user interface (GUI), cloud access agents (e.g., RDP, ICA, PCoIP), a local web browser, terminal emulators (in some cases), and a basic set of local utilities.
ClearCube Technology, a leading provider and pioneer in Centralized Computing Solutions, announced enhanced integration with Teradici Cloud Access Software, PCoIP Host Cards, and Zero Clients via its award-winning Sentral Management Software.
ClearCube Sentral 6.10 Centralized and Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (CVDI) management software features PCoIP hardware management and powerful connection brokering capabilities that allow zero client and thin client users to connect via the PCoIP protocol to blade PCs and virtual machines with Teradici Cloud Access Software or PCoIP Host Cards. This capability allows a one-stop solution to organizations for their hardware and software centralization needs.
Visionect and Mercury Innovation’s past collaboration also includes the world’s first installation of solar powered e-paper traffic signs in Sydney that have been running uninterrupted, come rain or shine, over the past 5 years.
A new desktop thin client and two new notebook thin clients from Fujitsu offer compact computing for businesses who use a centralized access server to protect company data and improve security. These thin clients run low-powered hardware but offer fast networking connections. The operating systems supported are eLux RP6 or Windows 10 IoT Enterprise.
The notebook-based FUTRO MA576 and MU937 are expected to release around the end of April in Japan at retail prices of JP¥99,500 (US$930) and JP¥158,900 (US$1480) respectively. The desktop-based FUTRO S740 should release in late May at an MSRP of JP¥59,600 (US$555). While this initial release is for Japan only, Fujitsu devices often make it to Europe not long afterward and some models have started appearing in the United States now too.
Enterprises leveraging the IGEL UDC3 and IGEL UD Pocket to convert existing x86-based PCs, laptops, tablets and third-party thin clients into IGEL OS-powered endpoints now benefit from enhanced security capabilities
UEFI Secure Boot validated UDC3 and IGEL UD Pocket solutions are available now, and are distinguished by a visual cue in the form of a lock icon that appears on the system’s boot splash providing an assurance that the endpoint is activated with UEFI Secure Boot.
NComputing will evolve their RX-HDX thin client into the Citrix Ready workspace hub, bringing innovation and use-case driven features to enterprises.
The Citrix Ready workspace hub by NComputing is an enterprise-ready software and hardware solution. Citrix Ready verification ensures that it meets the performance, security and manageability demands of an enterprise-grade zero client.
The NComputing RX-HDX thin client is available through authorized NComputing resellers with a MSRP of $119*. The Citrix workspace hub update will be available as a technical preview and available for download on March 31st, 2018. And, if you’re attending Mobile World Congress you can also see it in the Citrix booth.
IGEL UD Pocket is a groundbreaking micro thin client device which enables remote and mobile workers to access cloud services, server-based computing applications and virtual desktops by plugging a tiny device into any x86 machine, including Macs. After connecting to the internet, it automatically integrates into the IGEL Universal Management Suite (UMS) for secure remote support, deployment and management. UD Pocket extends the functionality of existing hardware by enabling a second tightly managed operating system to run on an endpoint. Once the user has finished accessing their virtual desktop environment through the IGEL UD Pocket, they can simply reboot their principal OS and return to the original desktop. UD Pocket delivers any device, any application and any cloud solution that is foundational to a modern, mobile, software defined thin client solution.
