How Does VDI Blaster™ Work?
VDI Blaster is the most popular software tool that enables a PC to act as a thin client. VDI Blaster converts PCs into secure and centrally manageable virtual desktop, which enables companies and organizations of all sizes to realize the benefits of thin client computing, and extends their capital investment of PCs.
The latest version of VDI Blaster includes internal wireless support and when using Devon IT’s Echo management platform, persistence of settings and configurations. Additional enhancements include an updated graphical user interface (GUI) and First Boot Wizard, and new access clients.
VDI Blaster offers many benefits for IT initiatives. Once a PC reaches the end of its useful life, VDI Blaster provides a simple plug-and-play solution to transform the PC into a thin client, which is still able to run Windows OS and applications. It also allows the PCs to return to their previous state if necessary. VDI Blaster minimizes the risk of switching to a fully virtualized IT architecture. VDI Blaster makes centrally-managed desktops possible, which reduces risk and allows for synchronized system updates. Devon IT’s VDI Blaster will connect thin clients to Microsoft Terminal Services, shared services, and virtual desktops from Citrix XenAppView, Microsoft RDP, RemoteFX through rResktop, VMware Horizon View, Virtual Bridges, and vWorkspace.
Three ways to install
Users download VDI Blaster to old PCs via a USB key or a MSI (Windows Installer) install. VDI Blaster deploys Devon IT’s thin client operating system, Devon Terminal Operating System (DeTOS™), and Devon IT’s thin client management software, Echo™ to help IT administrators manage enterprise-wide deployments from one central location. Once VDI Blaster is deployed, users repurpose into a dual-boot Windows and VDI Blaster PC, run VDI Blaster with a live-boot CD or USB flash drive, or remove Windows and fully install VDI Blaster to the hard disk.
