Devon IT to Launch TC2, Industry's Smallest Thin Client at VMworld

Devon IT, Inc., an alternative desktop solution company and the fastest growing provider of thin client terminals, today announced it will debut its ultra-small TC2 thin client at VMworld 2008 (booth 360) at The Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas from September 15-18.

Starting at US$189, the TC2 is VDI, Xen, and RDP-capable and designed to be the most efficient and cost-effective alternative to standard PCs. Standing less than six inches in height and five inches in length, the TC2 is the market's smallest generally available thin client. It consumes 8-9 watts on average, compared to nearly 150 watts used by PCs, and is VESA-mountable to maximize desktop space.
 
"The TC2 is the latest in Devon IT's evolution of thin client technologies, and I believe it will help us set the industry standard for quality and price of hosted client solutions," explained Joe Makoid, President, Devon IT. "Devon IT's goal is to couple low-cost, high-quality hosted desktops with superior deployment support to help customers transition smoothly to hosted clients without breaking the bank. We are excited to showcase the TC2, the industry's smallest thin client, at VMworld."
 
The TC2 is available with the Devon Terminal Operating System (DeTOS), provides the latest multimedia and web browsing capabilities, and contains extensive device support.
Additional features include:
 
-- User-friendly Graphical User Interface (GUI)
-- Size: 5.9"h x 4.7"l x 1.4"w
-- Displays Windows desktops, web browsers, and applications from multi-user Windows Microsoft
-- Windows, Terminal Servers 2001/2003/2008
-- Full multimedia support with 4 USB 2.0 Ports (2 front, 2 back), 1 VGA (DB-15) port, 1 PS/2 port for keyboard, and audio ports (Line out, MIC)
-- VIA Eden 400 MHz processor, 64 MB RAM/128 DOM Flash
-- Fanless with no moving parts (i.e. hard drive) to fail
 
"We are listing this at $189 and we are bundling in our new and improved management stack for free," noted Makoid. "Coupled with virtualization technologies, the TC2 provides the enterprise-wide benefits hosted client solutions provide, including improved security, centralized management, and lower total cost of ownership. We are excited to showcase this new technology at VMworld."
 
In addition to TC2 demonstrations, Devon IT will feature its mobile thin client notebook, the SafeBook LVO. Launched in May, the SafeBook LVO is built on the Lenovo R61 ThinkPad platform and is compatible with all Lenovo docking stations and accessories. Devon IT will also demonstrate its TC10 desktop device that utilizes the advanced PC-over-IP protocol to access remote workstations.
