|iThinc is an embedded solution that converts a diskless node into a
full-featured thin client, supporting all major connectivity protocols.
iThinc launches a small, stateless client that connects to application
servers. The iThinc O/S is fully self-contained and communicates with
its environment by means of industry standard IP protocols.
The configuration is made with an easy to use graphical Web-based
GUI which guides you through the required steps.
After booting, the thin client will be capable of accessing any
Unix/Linux XDM (X Display Manager) server presenting the graphical
login screen or any Microsoft Terminal Server through RDP (Remote Desktop Protocol), Citrix
ICA server, VNC server etc.
It can access NFS server or other services over low speed connections presents in WAN (Wide
Area Networks) or Internet VPN (Virtual Private Network Environments.)
Because no local devices, such as diskette, cd-rom or hard disks are needed, it will
dramatically reduce the TCO (Total Cost of Ownership) with clients being as thin as possible.
This means for example, that you can reduce the virus and security incidents in your network
to a minimum. But if you need such devices you can configure the clients to use sound, local
print services, USB, cd-rom, etc.
With no mechanical parts means among many things: less noise, less energy and fewer
Terminal protocols supported.
- Windows Terminal Services (RDP). Support for RDP 4.x, 5.x protocols.
- Supported OS includes Windows NT, 2000, 2003 and XP.
- Citrix ICA and Manager Consoles
- X-Terminal (XDM) for Unix/Linux.
- Local Windows Desktop for Local Applications.
- Support for Laptops.
- Display Support form 8-bit to 32-bit based on Server Operating System
- Remotely administer thin clients using VNC and telnet
- Network card and video card auto detection
- Eliminates Client/Node Desktop Hardware Upgrades, since all computing is on
- Centralized Administration.
- Centralized Software Upgrades. (To be done only on the Server.)
- Maintenance free with no possibility of OS corruption.
- Read-only file system on iThinc, thus providing highest protection against
software corruption or virus attacks.
- Provision for fallback options for booting the node from various sources, viz
Local boot (DOM), Remote boot (PXE) and Local Hard Disk boot if required.
- Typical Setup time for iThinc solution is very small with least changes required
in existing network setup.
