- Wake Virtual Machines: when connecting to a VM which is in standby – send a wake-up command to it.
Aviv Soffer, Chip PC CEO, says: “Chip PC is proud to be part of the evolution of the computing world in the direction of desktop virtualization. Combining the forces of Server-Centric technology with Virtualization creates a whole new set of applications for thin clients in areas that were traditionally limited to fat clients. Chip PC is the first and currently the only thin-client vendor that offers native support for VDI across all of our platforms. Our Xcalibur Global management platform offers a unified devices, users, and sessions management solution and VM brokering without the need to integrate 3rd party products. With Chip PC thin-clients customers can seamlessly access applications through traditional web browser, ICA and RDP as well as through virtual desktop machines hosted on the server. The market is very enthusiastic about this new solution and about our integration of VDI brokering into the Xcalibur Global management suite. "
VMware’s Virtual Desktop Infrastructure solution enables organizations to control access to their workstations from the data center by placing any user desktop environment on a virtual machine that is hosted on the server. The user desktop is accessed by a thin client.
VDI contributes greatly to cost reduction, centralization and simplicity of running and managing applications.
