Next-generation thin clients running Windows Embedded Standard 7

Hosted desktop environments using Citrix, Microsoft, or VMware
All VDI and thin client devices that run DeTOS 7.3 (or Devon IT’s WES7
operating systems) can be managed by Devon IT’s Echo™ thin client
management software. Echo™ management software automates the
distribution of settings and connections to the thin client terminals,
enabling system and desktop administrators to create or copy new
arrangements of settings, connections, and disk images to tailor the IT
environment to their needs.
Echo Thin Client Management Software combines thin client management
capabilities with connection management features. Whether overseeing
complex, large scale hosted-desktop deployments or managing a small
group of thin client terminals, IT personnel use Devon IT Echo™ to
manage multiple desktops through one central appliance.
Devon IT Echo Thin Client Management Software is used to manage:
Features of Devon IT’s Echo include:
User Groups and Profiles - Echo allows system administrators to design
customized system profiles that incorporate the programs, settings,
and connection types available to their users. Using these profiles,
every user group receives a desktop experience uniquely tailored to
Remote Application - With the Echo thin client management console, new
configurations, settings, profiles, and updates can be remotely pushed
down to units without ever requiring the administrator to touch the
terminals. Any changes made can be instantly applied or applied upon
the next system reboot, depending on preference.
Real-Time Monitoring - Echo is in constant contact with all of the
devices it is managing. Administrators can view the current status of
any terminal and review event logs at any time. Additionally, Echo
automatically detects any new device directed to the server, making
large deployments a breeze.
Browser Based Interface - Echo is operated through any internet
browser that can connect to the Echo server, allowing administrators
to easily access the management platform from anywhere with an
Software Packages - IT personnel are able to apply customized software
packages through the management console. This gives administrators
greater freedom in making the user experience as streamlined as
possible through easily applied updates and software additions.
Among the many available settings that can be utilized was the ability
to apply a password for the DeTOS control panel that prevented the end
users from altering or creating connections, giving administrators
greater ability to prevent end user error.
“Our customers continue to show an increased interest in deploying thin
clients for improved security and management," noted Ian Geiser, Devon
IT CTO. "However, they don’t want to compromise on user experience.
Devon IT’s support of HTML5, Citrix 13.0 with StoreFront, VMWare Horizon
View 2.3 and RDP RemoteApp and RDGateway, makes the thin clients running
DeTOS ideal desktop terminals for many customers.”
“Thin clients continue to advance rapidly, and Devon IT remains
committed to advancing in the virtual desktop space,” says Makoid. “I
look forward to continuing our partnership with industry leaders such as
Lenovo and expanding the use of thin clients and the sever-based
computing model across our collective customer bases.”
