CLI Enhances Products for Expanded VDI Use
PLACENTIA, CA - April 3, 2007 - Computer Lab International (CLI), a leading provider of thin client products, announced expanded product capabilities that build on their ability to work within virtual desktop environments.
All CLI thin clients products support VMware and Citrix environments. CLI thin clients support Microsoft RDP, which provides the basic compatibility to VMware's Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI), as well as Citrix ICA, for compatibility with Citrix's Desktop Broker for Presentation Server, a component of Citrix Dynamic Desktop Initiative (DDI).
And now, all CLI Windows CE thin client products come complete with support for the Provision Networks Virtual Access Suite for more comprehensive Dynamic Desktop Deployment capabilities, enabling on-demand access to VDI-based published desktop and applications.
"Flexibility, security, manageability, accessibility and lower cost of ownership are just a few reasons that CLI thin clients work so well together with desktop virtualization" says CLI's Director of Marketing, Michael Oliva. "These are the same benefits we have always touted with our thin clients, but now with the VDI market emerging at such a pace, we are delivering more efficient and more extensive solutions to meet our customer's needs."
The powerful CLI Windows CE thin client terminals with expanded VDI capabilities include:
o MT1200c: Value-Priced Mini Thin Client
o MT1500g: General Purpose Mini Thin Client, With Options For Internal Smart Card Reader and Built-In Wireless
o ET4500g: High-Performance Expandable Thin Client
Under a new CLI promotion designed to let customers take the first steps toward VDI, prices start as low as $249, and the products are all available immediately through CLI resellers worldwide.
Over time, CLI will be adding additional connection broker client support to their Windows CE thin client products, as well as expanding the VDI capabilities of their Linux and Windows XP Embedded thin clients.
