Chip PC Technologies AnnouncesSupport of VDI Solution

Chip PC announces support of the VMware Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) with its enhanced thin client product lines.

Chip PC, global technology leader in server-centric solutions, announces its thin clients support in the VMware Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) solution.

VMware’s Virtual Desktop Infrastructure solution enables organizations to control their workstations from the data center by placing any user desktop environment on a virtual machine that is hosted on the server. The user desktop is accessed by a thin client. 

VDI contributes greatly to cost reduction, centralization and simplicity of running and managing applications. 

VMware Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) is a server-based computing offering that provides desktop environments as an enterprise hosted service. VDI allows administrators to maintain and manage all user applications, data, and environments in the centrally located data center.

With VMware Virtual Desktop infrastructure (VDI), companies can host individual desktops inside virtual machines that are running in their data center. Users access these desktops remotely from a thin client using a remote display protocol. Since applications are managed centrally at the corporate data center, organizations gain better control over their desktops. Installations, upgrades, patches and backups can be done with more confidence without user intervention.

VMware Virtual Desktop Infrastructure lets companies preserve the security level of their corporate network at offsite facilities. Remote users access applications that reside in the corporate data center, where companies can more easily adhere to compliance requirements as well as secure data that is now locked down in the host country data center.

VMware Virtual Desktop Infrastructure includes full environments that are familiar to end users and not limited by hardware or location.

The VDI solution is also supported by Xcalibur Global management software Virtual Desktop Center that further enhances the existing support in virtual desktops, by offering:

  • Desktops Pool: pool virtual or actual desktops into groups thus making it possible randomly assigned machines to users
  • Manage Virtual Machines status: connect to the VMware Virtual Center and manage VM's status (Stop/Start/Pause/ Resume and more)
  • Wake Virtual Machines on the fly: when connecting to a VM which is in standby – send a wake-up command to it.
