For organizations intending to migrate into to a virtualized, cloud-computing environment, VXL Instruments has rolled-out VXL Software’s new CloudDesktop PC repurposing software leveraging more viable solution to that of a legacy PC infrastructure.
Combined with the existing investment of a large PC infrastructure, VXL’s CloudDesktop is claimed to demonstrate an easy-to-deploy and low cost alternative featuring VXL Software’s latest Gio 6 Linux based operating system.
By extending the life of legacy PC’s as re-configured and fully-optimized thin client devices, VXL’s CloudDesktop offers a seamless PC-to-thin client transition strategy without the cost of acquiring new hardware and maximizing the existing investment.
Commenting on the launch, Frank Noon, VP Worldwide Sales, VXL Instruments added “Under the current business climate, organizations constantly have to balance the need to replace ageing PCs against the constraints of a tough economic outlook and stretched IT budgets. VXL’s CloudDesktop PC Repurposing software offers an effective and sustainable solution at a fraction of the cost.”
Gaining all the benefits of virtualized computing, including better security, zero viruses and low power consumption, CloudDesktop provides a unique stepping stone solution from traditional fat PCs to thin clients.
Powering performance and reliability, the new solution comes in a wide range of the industry protocols, including Citrix, VMware and Microsoft, VXL’s CloudDesktop, runs on X86 base PC’s and supports Intel, AMD and VIA processors. Extremely easy to configure and set-up in minutes, VXL’s CloudDesktop can be deployed via USB, CD-ROM / DVD or remotely using management tools and is available in both French and German language versions.
CloudDesktop’s integral USB Device Manager also controls which USB devices can be used, not only the type and manufacturer but also the make and model, while the Repository Manager provides App store-like convenience for deploying different protocols and applications.
Incorporating support for VXL’s Fusion Universal Device Manager (UDM), CloudDesktop also offers organizations the ability to construct an effective and managed solution. Furthermore, as the devices are centrally managed, all software updates can be simultaneously deployed without having to undertake time consuming individual tasks.
