Devon IT Announces VDI Blaster PC Thin Client Repurposing Software Now Orderable from Lenovo in Europe

Devon IT today announced its VDI Blaster PC repurposing software thin client solution is available through Lenovo. VDI Blaster is designed to provide IT administrators a simplified way to repurpose PCs and then cost-effectively manage them as thin clients across their hosted or virtual desktop environment. VDI Blaster is now orderable in Europe as a part of Lenovo’s overall thin client end-to-end solutions, with part number 4ZR0D71083.

"We are committed to providing industry-leading and cost-effective thin client solutions for users and organizations of all sizes," explained Joe Makoid, President, Devon IT. "VDI Blaster is designed to provide a simple approach in transitioning from desktop PCs to thin clients in a server-centric computing environment.”

VDI Blaster

Devon IT’s VDI Blaster software provides extended life to existing PCs by converting them into thin-clients. VDI Blaster converts aging enterprise PCs into secure, managed desktop; enabling organizations of all sizes to realize benefits of thin client computing, and extends their capital investments. For companies and organizations looking to maximize the life of existing PCs, VDI Blaster offers the benefits of a thin client at less than a fraction of the price of a new desktop.

Benefits of VDI Blaster:

  • Repurposes existing PCs into thin clients
  • Centralizes desktop management
  • Creates the ability to run current Windows OS and applications
  • Minimizes risk of switching to virtual desktop infrastructure
  • PC can be returned to its previous state
  • When PC reaches end of life, a simple plug-and-play transition to a thin client
  • Connects thin clients to Microsoft Terminal Services, shared services, and virtual desktops from Citrix or VMware

Thin Client Software

Devon IT's software running on PCs repurposed with VDI Blaster, includes the DeTOS operating system and the Echo thin client management suite. These enable IT managers to easily create, deploy and manage their virtual desktop infrastructure. VDI is complex and therefore requires a holistic management framework to orchestrate the many components required for successful virtual desktop delivery and management. Devon IT's software suite streamlines and simplifies desktop virtualization deployments; enabling IT organizations to gain greater management and control, ensure data and asset security, deliver a superior end-user experience, and provide enterprise business continuity at reduced costs.

In addition to Windows XP PCs, VDI Blaster can be used to upgrade and manage:

  • Dell/Wyse C series, D series, R series, T series and Z series thin clients
  • HP t series thin clients
  • Other manufacturers’ thin clients
