Devon IT, Inc., a leading alternative desktop solution company, today announced significant early traction with the general availability of the VDI BlasterTM software suite designed to extend the useful life of desktop computers. VDI BlasterTM is currently available for an introductory price USD $19.95 per device at www.vdiblaster.com.
Over 200 companies from around the world have purchased and downloaded the VDI Blaster software suite, and are utilizing the novel approach to extending the useful life of PCs by transforming them into thin clients to save money, save management time and cut costs.
Users download VDI BlasterTM to old PCs via a USB key or a network install. VDI BlasterTM deploys Devon IT’s thin client operating system, Devon Terminal Operating System (DeTOSTM), and Devon IT’s thin client management software, ThinManageTM, to help IT administrators manage enterprise-wide deployments from a central location. Once VDI BlasterTM is deployed, users can select to boot into their normal Windows operating system or into DeTOSTM.
“Using VDI Blaster to convert aging enterprise PCs into secure, managed thin clients enables organizations of all sizes to extend their capital investment in PCs while testing thin client computing models. Traditional desktops typically need to be refreshed or replaced every three or four years, but companies and organizations can now extend the life of these PCs by converting them into thin clients. Users can simultaneously test hosted client computing methods, and we hope VDI Blaster will continue the momentum of IT administrators moving from desktop PCs to hosted client environments.”
