Boundless Technologies Announces Thin Client Support For Windows 2000.
NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 18, 2000
-- Boundless' family of Windows-based Terminals and Windows 2000
Servers Enable Centralized Application Deployment and Fast End-User
Access to Windows 2000 Applications Across the Enterprise --
Boundless Technologies today announced thin-client support for Microsoft Windows 2000 Servers with its family of 'Windows 2000 ready' Capio Windows-based Terminals (WBT). Microsoft's Terminal Services, integrated into Windows 2000 Server and Advanced Server, and Boundless' family of thin-clients provide organizations with a strategic server-based computing solution for centralized application deployment. Organizations can benefit from reduced administration and management overheads while empowering users with fast access to powerful Windows 2000 applications.
Capio combines the low-cost, hassle-free administration and security of traditional text terminals, with the familiar, easy to use Windows NT graphical user interface and PC-like capabilities needed to run Windows applications. Applications reside and are executed on an application server by Windows 2000 Server's Terminal Services and are accessed by the user as needed, rather than being maintained and managed on a multitude of individual PCs. In addition, Boundless' Viewpoint Administrator(TM) software ensures simpler and more cost effective software administration, by centralizing the management of all Boundless thin-clients on the network.
&uot;For organizations looking to migrate to Windows 2000, the server-based/thin-client computing approach can bring enormous benefits. Through the ability to centrally control both the deployment and continued administration and management of new applications, organizations can significantly reduce initial and on going IT and resource overheads,&uot; said J. Gerald Combs, chairman and CEO, Boundless Technologies. &uot;With server-based computing and thin-clients as the end to end solution, users can instantly benefit from the latest applications, eliminating the need for IT management to worry about desktop upgrades and distributed maintenance of client devices.&uot;
&uot;We seamlessly integrated more than 100 Capio Windows-based Terminals on our campuses, making 700 online research databases and library card catalogues easily and quickly accessible for the 23,000 students and staff members studying and working here, said Andrew White, director of library information systems at Stonybrook University. &uot;As we migrate over to the new Windows 2000 operating systems and applications, we anticipate a 50% cost saving in time due to the minimal maintenance and work required to administer changes using Boundless' thin client computing solution.&uot;
Boundless Technologies' support for Windows 2000 continues the company's efforts to deliver thin-client devices that support the latest advances in application server software and server-based computing. Boundless also supports Citrix's leading application server software, MetaFrame for Windows 2000 Servers, for additional server-based computing functionality.
