Devon IT, Inc., a leading alternative desktop solution company and the fastest growing provider of thin client terminals, today announced that its TC10 PC-over-IP thin client is certified with VMware’s industry-leading virtual desktop solution, VMware ViewTM. This designation indicates the models have completed the VMware Hardware Certification Program testing criteria for use with VMware View and are now listed on the VMware Hardware Compatibility Guide. The VMware Hardware Certification Program enables VMware Technology Alliance Partner (TAP) program members to provide mutual customers with jointly supported hardware solutions.
Passing the extensive certification testing helps ensure that the TC10 is compatible with VMware technology and ready for deployment in customer environments.
“By combining Devon IT’s TC10 thin clients with VMware ViewTM, enterprises can centralize management, increase security and improve overall TCO. This combined solution further helps enterprises provision users while meeting their diverse needs,” said Raj Mallempati, director, product marketing, desktop business unit, VMware. “We are pleased that the TC10 qualifies for the VMware ReadyTM Certified logo, signifying to customers that these thin client models have passed specific VMware integration and interoperability criteria.”
“Devon IT’s TC10 is the first desktop access device that gives the end user a true PC experience with instant screen updates, full multimedia support, and full USB compatibility. Unlike a traditional thin client, the TC10 is for demanding users that require real time PC-like capability such as financial traders and power users such as CAD engineers. Devon IT’s TC10 can now be centrally managed by the VMware ViewTM Connection Broker. We are proud of our continued relationship with VMware and are anxious to deploy VMware View with the TC10 thin clients to customers.”
– Stephane Verdy, chief technology officer for Devon IT
