Chip PC Technologies Introduces its Desktop Virtualization solutions supporting the Citrix XenDesktop™ delivery solution alongside with its new class of Desktop Appliances

Jun 12, 2008, Munich, Germany

Chip PC Technologies, a leader in desktop replacement and thin computing, today announced that it will be introducing its Desktop Virtualization solutions supporting the Citrix XenDesktop™ delivery solution alongside with its new class of Desktop Appliances.

Delivering the most innovative family of desktop replacement products, Chip PC supports the XenDesktop™ virtualization standard via its complete line of hardware and software solutions, providing seamless integration into desktop virtualization environments as well as traditional server-based computing environments. Simple, efficient, scalable and flexible – Chip PC ushers in a new era that will take the virtual desktop beyond the familiar desktop experience to the superior!


Chip PC’s flexible products are an out of the box solution for mixed computing environments, including both virtual desktops suitable for knowledge workers and traditional thin clients historically targeted at fixed function application delivery requirements or task-based workers.


A single, policy-based management console enables on the fly allocation of desktops for users offering a single sign-on and seamless integration and migration between various computing environments. Chip

PC’s integrated management shadowing capabilities via the Session Desk Manager enable central monitoring and allocation of Virtual Desktops, ICA and RDP connections to users.


"We target ease-of-use and a seamless integration into desktop virtualization environments as well as server-based computing environments", said Stephan Herkert, VP Europe for Chip PC, "With access devices drawing as low as between 1.5 up to 3.5 watts of power at maximum load and featuring onboard multimedia acceleration in selective models, Chip PC’s devices are the logical replacement to traditional fat PCs. With their design centered on ease of use they deliver desktops on demand enabling full data protection and reducing total cost of ownership by up to 40%".


Leveraging years of experience, Chip PC continues to integrate its core strategy of providing state-of-the-art cold technology into its revolutionary products.  Featuring Chip PC’s new LX OS (Linux-based) and onboard multimedia acceleration, the new Plug PC access devices drive changes in the desktop continuum, while setting new standards for Desktop Virtualization, featuring rapid boot, domain authentication in an LX OS (Linux-based), and a truly rich multimedia experience.


“Chip PC’s participation in the Citrix Ready Desktop Appliance partner program has enabled them to develop a new line-up of desktop appliances that are optimized for XenDesktop, and offer a powerful mix of seamless integration, green technology and multimedia performance,” said Sumit Dhawan, senior director of product marketing, Desktop Delivery Group, Citrix Systems. “With the integration of Chip PC’s desktop appliances and XenDesktop, we can deliver a superior user experience that looks and performs just like a traditional PC.”


The benefits for IT organizations will be simplicity in deployment and maintenance, with the added benefit of the lowest power consumption desktop appliances in any class. The collaboration with Citrix further widens Chip PC’s status in the desktop virtualization market by leveraging Citrix XenDesktop to deliver an end-to-end desktop virtualization solution.


The new Plug PC appliance will be offered at especially attractive pricing from Chip PC strategic partners and will be available late in the third quarter.  Existing Chip PC Appliances that support XenDesktop are available today with RRP prices starting at €199.00.
