ViewSonic Selects Stratodesk NoTouch Software for Groundbreaking Raspberry Pi VDI Thin Client for Citrix

Stratodesk announced today that ViewSonic has chosen Stratodesk NoTouch software as the operating system for a new HDX-ready Raspberry Pi thin-client architecture. The architecture is implemented as the ViewSonic SC-T25 HDX Pi, a fully integrated high-performance thin client that will begin shipping June 1, 2017. At an estimated retail price of less than $100, the new thin client shatters previous cost barriers to large-scale enterprise-level Virtualized Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) deployments.

Raspberry Pi—well known as a compact, affordable, single-board computing platform created by the Raspberry Pi Foundation—has not commonly been considered for enterprise-level applications. However, the SC-T25 developers have enhanced the platform to enable the thin client to perform on par with VDI endpoints that cost four times as much.

“Stratodesk NoTouch is already widely known as a highly robust and cost-effective VDI endpoint repurposing solution,” says Chris Fleck, vice president, Emerging Solutions at Citrix Systems. “We are pleased to welcome Stratodesk into the HDX Pi eco-system which should accelerate the adoption of this highly innovative endpoint platform.”

Integrated into the SC-T25 endpoint, Stratodesk HDX-ready NoTouch software offers Citrix users the following enterprise-level features:

  • Automated endpoint rollout, saving time and minimizing human error
  • Group-based management with multi-level inheritance
  • Help desk support
  • Enterprise Wi-Fi (802.1x) and network security support
  • Optimization for “Skype for Business” audio/video conferencing
  • Authentication and single sign-on (SSO) support
  • Dual-monitor support

Stratodesk CEO Emanuel Pirker sees immediate applications for the innovative VDI endpoint solution. “In large healthcare environments, for example, the SC-T25 client with integrated NoTouch offers an affordable way to roll out secure desktop environments across numerous shared mobile endpoints, driving noticeable improvements in staff productivity, data security and patient care,” Pirker says.

Erik Willey, product marketing director at ViewSonic, explains how its new thin client can benefit from the Stratodesk software: “By integrating Stratodesk’s NoTouch software into our SC-T25 HDX Pi, ViewSonic is able to deliver an ultra-high performance, yet highly configurable solution,” Willey says. “This provides for a very cost-effective delivery of virtual workspace computing power, security and scalability.”

Customers that have previously purchased an SC-T25 thin client will be eligible for a free upgrade to Stratodesk NoTouch, along with one year of software maintenance and support.

Managing mission-critical SAP systems and landscapes has never been easy. Add public cloud with its myriad of powerful cloud native services and this may not change any time soon. Public cloud offers exciting new possibilities for enterprise workloads. But to make use of these possibilities and capabilities, IT teams need to re-think everything they have done before. Otherwise, they will just end up using public cloud as a hosting platform for their workloads, aka known as “lift and shift.”
Multiple data types are pouring into IoT deployments. Data is coming in small packages as well as enormous files and data streams of many sizes. Widespread use of mobile devices adds to the total. In this power panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists looked at the tools and environments that are being put to use in IoT deployments, as well as the team skills a modern enterprise IT shop needs to keep things running, get a handle on all this data, and deliver...

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
"Tintri focuses on the Ops side of the DevOps, which basically is pushing more and more of the accessibility of the infrastructure to the developers and trying to get behind the scenes," explained Dhiraj Sehgal of Tintri in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
Both SaaS vendors and SaaS buyers are going “all-in” to hyperscale IaaS platforms such as AWS, which is disrupting the SaaS value proposition. Why should the enterprise SaaS consumer pay for the SaaS service if their data is resident in adjacent AWS S3 buckets? If both SaaS sellers and buyers are using the same cloud tools, automation and pay-per-transaction model offered by IaaS platforms, then why not host the “shrink-wrapped” software in the customers’ cloud? Further, serverless computing, cl...
