Zero Client End Points Draws Strong Interest

Modern Day Marine ended Thursday at Marine Corps Base, Quantico, and despite the dreary weather, the huge white pavilions set up on the scenic parade grounds were energizing beehives of activity as visitors sought out information about the latest IT and tactical technologiesCLT-Plus.png. The NCS booth in the first pavilion was constantly busy as we showcased of range of innovative IT technologies, including the rugged Bunker XRV-5241 IU short-depth server; a transit case of deployable, end-to-end Virtual Desktop Infrastructure which featured rugged Getac servers and end points; and the comprehensive portfolio of NCS Cirrus zero client desktop and laptop solutions. 

While visitors took an interest in all of our products, it was especially gratifying to see the impressive level of awareness that visitors had about virtualization in general, the VMware ecosystem and the plusses and minuses of thin clients versus zero clients.

Using PCoIP Protocol & Optimized for VMware Horizon View

Customers who virtualize end points with zero client technology have the most secure and innovative VDI options available. Unlike thin client laptops and desktops, zero clients do not store any data and through the use of the PCoIP protocol, compress, encrypt and encode data at the data center, thus protecting confidential information. NCS zero clients come in both notebook and desktop options, delivering security, manageability, mobility and portability where needed for a superior virtualized computing experience.

At Modern Day Marine, NCS showcased:

Cirrus LT laptop - the industry's first zero client notebook
Cirrus LT Plus - 4G & WiFi, and a generous 15.6 inch HD display, full keyboard and numeric keypad
Cirrus DT WiFi - industry leading portability and manageability
Cirrus TZ - a portfolio of desktop zero clients supporting up to 4 displays

Please consider test driving our family of zero clients solutions.
