Create Virtual Desktops Using Simplified Cloud Access
As businesses, schools, and other organisations move their data to the cloud, managers are seeking ways to leverage the benefits of cloud computing. Replacing bulky individual PCs with virtual desktops offers many cost and management advantages, such as centralised application management and a reduced need for IT support. Samsung testing revealed significantly lower power costs as well. However, creating a virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) presents challenges.
Samsung NX-N2 aids in providing a manageable, cost-effective path to creating workable, user-friendly VDI solutions. IT personnel can provide support and manage applications, backups and security remotely. Valuable resources can be saved by reducing the need to visit individual workstations that have a range of operating systems and software.
To access the virtual desktop, the user needs only an existing monitor and the compact NX-N2. Less equipment helps clear the physical desktop of cumbersome computers and speakers. Users can access the software, settings and data they need on a server. They can focus on assigned tasks rather than on updating software and backing up data.
Safeguard Sensitive Company Data
With the NX-N2 zero client, data is centralised and backed up in the data center for increased security. Centralised storage and management also supports compliance with many data protection regulations. The NX-N2 does not have a disk drive or stored data, so confidential data has greater protection from hackers and unauthorised users.
Streamline IT Maintenance and Support
NX-N2 is a zero-client PC-over-IP® (PCoIP®) cloud display that is designed to connect easily and effectively with a company’s data center. Because software is centrally deployed, IT infrastructure can be easier and less time-consuming to manage. Most maintenance and support tasks, including software upgrades and patches, can be performed centrally and simultaneously, with no need to visit employees’ desks.
Clear Desktop Clutter with a More Compact and Versatile Device
NX-N2 has a sleek, slim design and takes up much less space than typical desktop PCs. The horizontal model, for example, is 150.0 mm wide, 38.3mm high and 126.4mm deep. A vertical model with a stand is also available. NX-N2 set weighs just 0.425 kg.
In addition to taking up less space, the fanless device uses less power than most PCs, which helps reduce electricity expenses. The versatile zero-client NX-N2 also has built-in stereo speakers and offers multiple ports, including 6 USB ports, for connecting various peripherals.
PCoIP is a remote workstation protocol, the result of a breakthrough in display compression for connecting desktops over existing, standard IP networks. PCoIP technology enables centralised management of enterprise user desktops in the data center, and provides remote users with an exceptional computing platform. The PCoIP protocol compresses, encrypts and encodes the entire computing experience at the data center. Then, PCoIP transmits the experience, through pixels only, across a standard IP net-work to PCoIP zero clients. The data never leaves the data center. The PCoIP protocol supports high-resolution, full-frame rate 3-D graphics; high-definition (HD) media and audio; multiple large displays; and full Universal Serial Bus (USB) peripheral connectivity.
