Devon IT Releases DeTOS 7.3 Thin Client Operating System with HTML5 and Advanced Connection Features

Devon IT, a leading provider of thin client and virtual desktop solutions, today released DeTOS 7.3., the latest version of its Devon Terminal Operating System (DeTOS). The release includes support for HTML5 and other powerful upgrades including, Citrix 13.0 with StoreFront, VMWare Horizon View 2.3 and RDP RemoteApp and RDGateway.

DeTOS 7.3 is available now to customers that are entitled to upgrade on Devon IT thin clients – including Devon IT’s Ceptor HDMI thin client – and will be available as LeTOS on the Lenovo ThinkCentre M32 and M73 thin clients.

“The release of the HTML5 enhancements to DeTOS is based on customer and partner feedback,” says Joe Makoid, President, Devon IT. “Our customers have always wanted high performance, improved security, and easier IT management, and with the support of HTML5 and other features we have delivered once again.”

DeTOS 7.3 new features include:

HTML5 – offers superior audio and video support along with enhanced rendering of 2D and 3D graphics through WebGL and WebRTC that supports browser-to-browser applications for voice calling, video chat, and P2P file sharing without plugins.

Citrix Receiver 13 – delivers the full Citrix remote desktop experience and includes StoreFront. Citrix StoreFront is the successor to Citrix Web Interface for XenApp and XenDesktop. StoreFront is essential for managing multi-site XenApp and XenDesktop deployments.

VMWare Horizon View 2.3 – delivers virtualized and remote desktops and applications through a single platform and supports end users with access to all of their Windows and online resources through one unified workspace.

RDP RemoteApp enables programs to be accessed remotely through Remote Desktop Services appear as if they are running on the end user's local computer.

RDGateway – enables authorized users to connect to virtual desktops, Remote-App programs, and session-based desktops over a private network or the Internet.

All VDI and thin client devices that run DeTOS 7.3 (or Devon IT’s WES7 operating systems) can be managed by Devon IT’s Echo™ thin client management software. Echo™ management software automates the distribution of settings and connections to the thin client terminals, enabling system and desktop administrators to create or copy new arrangements of settings, connections, and disk images to tailor the IT environment to their needs.

Echo Thin Client Management Software combines thin client management capabilities with connection management features. Whether overseeing complex, large scale hosted-desktop deployments or managing a small group of thin client terminals, IT personnel use Devon IT Echo™ to manage multiple desktops through one central appliance.

Devon IT Echo Thin Client Management Software is used to manage:

  • Next-generation thin clients running Windows Embedded Standard 7 (WES7) or Devon Terminal Operating System (DeTOS).
  • Hosted desktop environments using Citrix, Microsoft, or VMware architectures.

Features of Devon IT’s Echo include:

  • User Groups and Profiles - Echo allows system administrators to design customized system profiles that incorporate the programs, settings, and connection types available to their users. Using these profiles, every user group receives a desktop experience uniquely tailored to their needs.
  • Remote Application - With the Echo thin client management console, new configurations, settings, profiles, and updates can be remotely pushed down to units without ever requiring the administrator to touch the terminals. Any changes made can be instantly applied or applied upon the next system reboot, depending on preference.
  • Real-Time Monitoring - Echo is in constant contact with all of the devices it is managing. Administrators can view the current status of any terminal and review event logs at any time. Additionally, Echo automatically detects any new device directed to the server, making large deployments a breeze.
  • Browser Based Interface - Echo is operated through any internet browser that can connect to the Echo server, allowing administrators to easily access the management platform from anywhere with an internet connection.
  • Software Packages - IT personnel are able to apply customized software packages through the management console. This gives administrators greater freedom in making the user experience as streamlined as possible through easily applied updates and software additions.

Among the many available settings that can be utilized was the ability to apply a password for the DeTOS control panel that prevented the end users from altering or creating connections, giving administrators greater ability to prevent end user error.

“Our customers continue to show an increased interest in deploying thin clients for improved security and management," noted Ian Geiser, Devon IT CTO. "However, they don’t want to compromise on user experience. Devon IT’s support of HTML5, Citrix 13.0 with StoreFront, VMWare Horizon View 2.3 and RDP RemoteApp and RDGateway, makes the thin clients running DeTOS ideal desktop terminals for many customers.”

“Thin clients continue to advance rapidly, and Devon IT remains committed to advancing in the virtual desktop space,” says Makoid. “I look forward to continuing our partnership with industry leaders such as Lenovo and expanding the use of thin clients and the sever-based computing model across our collective customer bases.”

The major cloud platforms defy a simple, side-by-side analysis. Each of the major IaaS public-cloud platforms offers their own unique strengths and functionality. Options for on-site private cloud are diverse as well, and must be designed and deployed while taking existing legacy architecture and infrastructure into account. Then the reality is that most enterprises are embarking on a hybrid cloud strategy and programs. In this Power Panel at 15th Cloud Expo (http://www.CloudComputingExpo.com), moderated by Ashar Baig, Research Director, Cloud, at Gigaom Research, Nate Gordon, Director of T...

Nigeria has the largest economy in Africa, at more than US$500 billion, and ranks 23rd in the world. A recent re-evaluation of Nigeria's true economic size doubled the previous estimate, and brought it well ahead of South Africa, which is a member (unlike Nigeria) of the G20 club for political as well as economic reasons. Nigeria's economy can be said to be quite diverse from one point of view, but heavily dependent on oil and gas at the same time. Oil and natural gas account for about 15% of Nigera's overall economy, but traditionally represent more than 90% of the country's exports and as...
The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker. The mesh of things that we manage must be segmented into zones of trust for sensing data, transmitting data, receiving command and control administrative changes, and peer-to-peer mesh messaging. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Bagnulo, Solution Architect / Software Engineer at SOA Software, focused on desi...
