NEXT GENERATION THIN CLIENTS FOR MICROSOFT

NComputing delivers simple-to-deploy, centrally managed cloud-ready thin clients designed and optimized for Microsoft Windows Virtual Desktop (WVD) and Remote Desktop Services (RDS).

Thin client solutions from NComputing extend the affordability of Windows Virtual Desktop and Remote Desktop Services adoption by lowering the total cost of ownership. Our solutions are affordable and built to satisfy the high-performance demands of today’s users.

Deployment and ongoing maintenance get refined and simplified with centralized device management. RX-series devices are highly secure, built on a locked-down Linux platform, protecting against malware and viruses.

Windows Virtual Desktop (WVD)

Windows Virtual Desktop (WVD) is a comprehensive desktop and application virtualization service managed by Microsoft and hosted in the Azure cloud. WVD delivers simplified management with multi-session Windows 10 support.

The service includes optimizations for Microsoft 365 Apps for enterprise, and support for RDS environments. WVD addresses a broad range of needs from business continuity to Work-From-Home initiatives.

Windows Remote Desktop Services (RDS)

Microsoft RDS is a platform useful for delivering individual virtualized applications, secure mobile and remote desktop access.

RDS offers deployment flexibility, cost efficiency, and extensibility—all delivered through a variety of deployment options, including Windows Server 2019 for on-premises deployments, Microsoft Azure for cloud deployments. It can be used for session-based virtualization, VDI, or a combination of the two.

NComputing is best-in-class for WVD

Verified Windows Virtual Desktop solution

NComputing is an official Windows Virtual Desktop partner for integrated Linux thin client solutions verified by Microsoft. Our optimized and verified thin clients raise the bar.

Simple, Powerful, Affordable

NComputing has 20 years of expertise in desktop virtualization. As our computing needs continue to move to the cloud, how we interact with systems and applications continues to evolve as well. If powerful servers are running everything for you, gone is the need for the typical PC hardware and its issues. But you still need some way to connect a keyboard, mouse, and display to the cloud to do meaningful work.

The RX-series thin clients fill this need.

Plugin your peripherals and internet and connect–that’s really all there is to it. PMC management software allows for central management of all devices on the platform by IT staff, pushing firmware updates and controlling access as needed.

More secure

The RX-series thin clients are built based on a read-only, minimally sized Linux platform. Only the required thin client functionality is locally loaded. The fully locked-down Linux platform is secure, protecting users against 3rd party applications and common threats.

Lower total cost of ownership

The RX-series thin clients lower the overall cost of ownership needed to adopt Windows Virtual Desktop. For organizations looking to refresh or acquire new endpoint devices, RX-series thin clients are a fraction of the cost compared to traditional PCs and laptops and deliver a PC-like performance. Centralized device management, minimal moving parts, and no local data concerns help slash ongoing device maintenance and security expenses.

Windows Virtual Desktop simplifies computing. RX-series thin clients eliminate many of the issues surrounding typical hardware deployments including data security, component failure, and energy consumption.

Power where you need it most

We've been using ARM-based devices as the basis for our most recent thin clients. The Raspberry Pi 4 brings premium performance characteristics and native dual display support to remote computing. Optimized for Windows WVD and Microsoft RDS, the RX420(RDP) thin client in particular offers a rich PC-like experience in an affordable, energy-saving device that literally fits in the palm of your hand.

Straight-forward connections in a small foot-print enable a deploy-anywhere approach to Windows Virtual Desktop

Add a keyboard, mouse, a display or two, and an internet connection. Select from stand-alone applications or a full operating system and experience the high-performing Windows Virtual Desktop experience–all from a device that fits in the palm of your hand.
