VXL’s new CloudDesktop??? PC Repurposing software provides a unique stepping-stone solution for extending the life of legacy PCs into a virtualized network

04/11/15 Manchester, UK – For organisations looking to switch to a virtualized, cloud-computing environment, VXL Software???s new CloudDesktop??? PC repurposing software delivers a more viable solution to that of a legacy PC infrastructure.

Having to continually invest in and provide support for an older business PC network can often become unsustainable for organisations. Combined with the existing investment of a large PC infrastructure, VXL???s CloudDesktop??? represents an easy-to-deploy and low cost alternative featuring VXL Software???s latest Gio 6 Linux based operating system.

By extending the life of legacy PC???s as re-configured and fully-optimized thin client devices, VXL???s CloudDesktop??? offers a seamless PC-to-thin client transition strategy without the cost of acquiring new hardware and maximising the existing investment.

Requiring very modest RAM and memory (min 1GB respectively) to run virtual applications, legacy PCs can be converted into fully functional thin clients in minutes and at a fraction of the cost of buying new thin clients. Gaining all the benefits of virtualized computing, including better security, zero viruses and low power consumption, CloudDesktop provides a unique stepping stone solution from traditional fat PCs to thin clients.

Compatible with a wide range of the industry protocols, including Citrix, VMware and Microsoft, VXL???s CloudDesktop???, runs on X86 base PC???s and supports Intel, AMD and VIA processors. Extremely easy to configure and set-up in minutes, VXL???s CloudDesktop??? can be deployed via USB, CD-ROM / DVD or remotely using management tools and is available in both French and German language versions.

CloudDesktop???s integral USB Device Manager also controls which USB devices can be used, not only the type and manufacturer but also the make and model, while the Repository Manager provides App store-like convenience for deploying different protocols and applications.

Incorporating support for VXL???s Fusion Universal Device Manager (UDM), CloudDesktop??? also offers organisations the ability to construct an effective and managed solution. Furthermore, as the devices are centrally managed, all software updates can be simultaneously deployed without having to undertake time consuming individual tasks.

Commenting on the launch, Frank Noon VP Worldwide Sales, added ???Under the current business climate, organisations constantly have to balance the need to replace ageing PCs against the constraints of a tough economic outlook and stretched IT budgets. VXL???s CloudDesktop??? PC Repurposing software offers an effective and sustainable solution at a fraction of the cost???.

VXL CloudDesktop??? PC repurposing software is available now, at $36.99 per licence and includes one year maintenance and support. In addition to English, CloudDesktop is also available in French and German language versions.
