Day 3 at NCS Booth #5644

Our staff is busy meeting with industry participants at HIMSS17, the year's largest and most influential Health IT conference. NCS is showcasing a broad technology portfolio at our booth. It turns out that the talk around the show appears to be in three major areas: data security, virtual reality applications and 3-D modeling. Whether you are approaching these areas because of a need for desktop virtualization and VDI, or facing other challenges that call for high-peformance computing platforms, NCS has industry-leading solutions to address any challenge.

In healthcare we are well known for our Cirrus family of desktop and laptop virtualized end points and have success stories all over North America and overseas to prove it. Our higher-performance computing platforms, such as Vortex workstations and our converged appliance offers, are more typically found in enterprise and government agencies, such as defense and intelligence, needing CAD rendering, 3-D modeling and improved graphics performance through hardware virtualization. But the power of our high-performance computing platforms are equally cost effective and accessible for healthcare applications!

undefined-007205-edited.jpgNCS is one of the industry's leading innovators in the virtualization space, and NCS is well known for its zero client virtual end points. Over the past few years we have educated IT administrators that implementing zero clients helps improve overall IT manageability and delivers strong security right to the desktop - where it is needed most.

Zero Clients Are a Key Component in Healthcare Security

NCS offers a complete family of virtualized zero client PCs. The NCS portfolio includes:

* Zero Client Desktops With Dual Display - Cirrus TZ-202L & Cirrus DT 5220
* Zero Client Desktops With Quad Display - Cirrus TZ-204L
* WiFi Zero Client Desktops with Dual Display - Cirrus DT WiFi & Cirrus DT 5230
* Zero Client Laptops - Cirrus LT & Cirrus LT Plus

Zero Clients are managed by VMware Horizon software and use the ultra-secure PCoIP remote display protocol. A zero client has no local OS. The operating system resides in the data center. Therefore, there is no persistent user data, no patches, updates or antivirus software needed. Of the many ways to virtualize at the endpoint, zero clients deliver super manageability, low cost of ownership and superior security protection. NCS solutions are also optimized for Amazon Workspaces and Microsoft Azure cloud environments.

If you would like to learn more about zero clients and how they help protect data, please download our brochure today. Please watch for our frequent Twitter updates using @InfoNCS and #HIMSS17
