Interphase Corporation (NASDAQ: INPH) announces the launch of clouDevice™, a comprehensive cloud computing/desktop virtualization product line, offering schools, business entities, and government agencies a smart choice for IT departments implementing private cloud-based desktop virtualization. Supporting all major virtual desktop host environments and end-user types, the debut of clouDevice marks the company’s entry into the cloud computing market. The clouDevice product line includes multi-seat clients that support Microsoft® Windows MultiPoint Server®, enterprise thin clients, and high-performance PCoIP zero clients, reaching a wide range of market segments: education, enterprise, SMB, and government. The clouDevice portfolio distinguishes itself with optimized features, and these devices are priced very attractively. “Our company’s track record of providing high-quality and innovative products is carried through with pride as we launch clouDevice,” says Greg Kalush, Chairman, President, and CEO of Interphase Corporation. “Our product portfolio brings a strong value proposition to schools, enterprises, SMBs, and government agencies. In schools where IT budgets are tight, our tailored solutions allow the IT department to expand computer resources to students, deploy virtual desktops with utmost flexibility, and manage them cost-effectively; Our clouDevice portfolio also includes an extensive line of feature-rich and cost-effective thin/zero clients for business entities and government institutions.” “According to analyst forecasts and industry trends, desktop virtualization is on the verge of rapid growth,” says HJ Li, Interphase Senior Director of Product Management who manages the clouDevice business. “We are entering the market with a comprehensive portfolio that supports both established and newly emerged desktop virtualization host environments. Our focus is to offer industry-leading product functionality and cost-saving benefits to end customers.” In a time when technology plays an integral role in the classroom, clouDevice offers schools affordable, innovative technology to make computer resources accessible to more faculty and students while at the same time minimizing IT departments’ end-point support burden. Multi-seat clients within the clouDevice portfolio are designed to support Windows MultiPoint Server and can help schools reduce CAPEX by 62%, save annual OPEX by 67%, and slash energy consumption by 78%. Overall, the key benefits of the entire clouDevice product line to end customers include lower total cost of ownership (TCO), enhanced security, simplified end-point management, and green computing.
ClouDevice addresses one of the biggest challenges for school IT departments – managing network configurations effectively. USB-based cloud clients available in the market today have a distance limitation of up to 16 feet between the client and a host computer running Windows MultiPoint Server. clouDevice multi-seat clients overcome such distance limitations and provide the most flexible network configuration and management options to school IT departments by providing both wired Ethernet and built-in Wi-Fi support.A demonstration of clouDevice clients for virtual desktops in schools will be presented during ISTE June 26 – 29th at M & A Technology’s booth, #1542.
