Devon IT releases new version of VDI Blaster thin client software

Supports VMware View 4 and PC-over-IP

By CBR Staff Writer

Devon IT, a thin client hardware and software provider, has released version 1.1 of its VDI Blaster software that repurposes PCs as thin clients.

The company said that the VDI Blaster software suite extends the life of PCs while testing virtual desktop environments. The new version supports VMware View 4 and PC-over-IP (PCoIP) and includes the ability to boot VDI Blaster from a USB key or CD-ROM, in addition to network installation.

According to Devon IT, the new version enables users to boot into the company’s new thin client operating system Devon Terminal Operating System 7 (DeTOS). The thin client management software is available as a free download to help IT administrators manage enterprise-wide deployments of thin clients and/or repurposed PCs from one central location.

Joe Makoid, president of Devon IT, said: “VDI Blaster gives organisations the ability to transform portions of their IT infrastructures from PC environments to virtual desktops overnight. We’ve found that the ability to repurpose and reuse existing PC asseys has not only extended organisations’ capital investments, but also helped them realise the cost, security, and manageability benefits of switching to hosted clients.

“This new release of VDI Blaster expands this effort and gives IT teams and users the chance to experience the power of PCoIP with VMware View 4 and other applications, and the flexibility to boot in various forms. The software’s price point is also very appealing to customers.”
