NCOMPUTING L350

Enterprise IT departments are actively searching for less expensive ways to purchase, deploy, and manage employee desktops. Desktop virtualization has been considered the cure-all for this headache, but users are still concerned about virtual desktop performance and multimedia support. NComputing shatters this perception by delivering rich multimedia playback, powerful yet simple deployment and management tools, and an industry-leading price point via its next-generation access device—the L350 virtual desktop with vSpace® Server desktop virtualization software.

NComputing, the market leader in deployed virtual desktops, has delivered more than 2.5 million low-cost access devices worldwide. The newest access device, the L350 virtual desktop, delivers rich fullscreen, full-motion multimedia playback; transparent USB redirection; and unparalleled peripheral support. Combined with the NComputing vSpace Server, the L350 now provides enterprises with a simple-to-deploy, low-cost means to implement a complete virtual desktop infrastructure in hours.

NComputing vSpace Server enables enterprises to optimize virtual desktop deployments by providing multiple end users with simultaneous access to a single operating system instance of Windows. vSpace not only integrates into virtualization server deployments based on VMware, Citrix and Microsoft offerings, but can also extend their value by changing the typical virtual desktop structure from one user per virtual machine to 100 users per virtual machine. This has a direct, positive impact on operational expenses and immediately lowers overall desktop PC costs such as support, maintenance, and desktop replacement.

With the L350, watching HD quality video comes standard for most common media formats. The game-changing access device comes packaged in a sleek low-power package that can be easily mounted on a monitor or secured to a desk. Powered by the proven NComputing Numo System-on-Chip (SoC), the L350 uses patent-pending hardware technology to decode and scale multimedia locally, eliminating network strain. The L350 access device costs less than any other thin- or zeroclient options and is a quarter of the cost of desktop PCs. In combination with the NComputing vSpace Server, it enables VDI solutions at one-third the price of traditional offerings.

FEATURE FUNCTION BENEFIT
HOST-OPTIMIZED VIDEO ACCELERATION Video content played through standalone media players or embedded into web pages may be transcoded, streamed, locally decoded, and scaled up to 1080p resolution with DVI-D digital video output to the monitor. Users will experience PC-quality video without excessive hostside processing or requiring a local PC or thin client with media player and codec support
HIGH-AVAILABILITY LOGIN Administrator may define a failover group list of hosts to which devices may automatically connect Each user can be assured a login within seconds, even in the event of a host failure, without complex central management servers and agents
EXPRESS DEPLOYMENT TOOLS Administrators may define a device template with all settings and configurations so that it may be cloned and pushed to new devices Thousands of devices may be easily deployed without manual configuration—and without requiring the installation of complex centralized management infrastructure
VMWARE AND CITRIX SUPPORT Leverage VMware to deploy multiple instances of vSpace, multiplying the number of users per server, or integrate the Citrix Receiver to deploy XenApp-based applications Extend the benefits of vSpace and the L350 for large deployments by leveraging server and application virtualization technologies
ZERO MANAGEMENT The L350 is easy to configure and automatically receives updates from deployed vSpace servers The L350 is easy to configure and is automatically managed by the vSpace server, unlike thin clients that require complex management tools to deal with locally installed applications or so-called “zero clients” that require complex networking and management server setup
TRANSPARENT USB REDIRECTION The L350 includes 4 High-Speed USB 2.0 ports that transparently redirect bulk, HID, mass-storage class, and printer devices back to the server where the native driver is installed No local management of drivers is required to support USB devices
ZERO-FOOTPRINT INSTALLATION The L350 includes a convenient VESA mounting option for LCD displays Keep the desktop clutter-free by mounting the L350 device to the back of an LCD monitor
