Devon IT Announces Powerful New TC6 Thin Client.

New TC6 AMD Dual Core Thin Client is Manageable by Company's Thin Client Management Software

KING OF PRUSSIA, Pa. -- Devon IT, Inc., a leading provider of thin client and virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) hardware and software solutions, today announced the powerful Devon IT TC6 thin client based on AMD's Dual Core G-T56N 1.6 GHz Processor with AMD Radeon[TM] HD 6320 Graphics. The TC6 will be fully manageable by Devon IT's Echo thin client management software.

"The TC6, operating with AMD's powerful, newly-designed processor, sets the thin client computing industry standard with high-performance application capabilities that rival the user experiences delivered by PCs," says Joe Makoid, president of Devon IT. "Devon IT's goals have always been anchored in driving innovation to develop high-performance products that use less energy and reduce IT costs across-the-board. We are excited to work with our industry partners, including Citrix and Microsoft, to deliver the enterprise-wide benefits of the TC6 to customers needing high-performance, low-cost IT solutions."

The Devon IT TC6 features a dual-core AMD G-series processor with integrated discrete-class AMD Radeon graphics, which at 1.65 GHz provides customers with ample power for the most rigorous remote business graphics needs. The TC6 is fanless to help companies reduce noise in office environments and eliminate moving parts to increase the life-span of their end point devices.

"We're seeing widespread interest in the AMD Embedded G-Series platform in thin clients, signaling high demand from a variety of industries," says Buddy Broeker, Director, Embedded Solutions, at AMD. "The Accelerated Processing Unit (APU) combines a low-power CPU and a discrete-level GPU into a single integrated unit, which delivers an exceptional multimedia experience for low-power and small form factor thin clients."

Product features include:

* Available with Microsoft Windows Embedded Standard 7 (WES7) or the industry leading Devon Terminal Operating System (DeTOS)

* Fully manageable by the Echo management software

* Dual Core AMD G-T56N 1.6 GHz Processor with AMD Radeon[TM] HD 6320 Graphics

* Dual DisplayPort

* DisplayPort to DVI and DisplayPort to VGA adapters optional

* Four USB 2.0 ports

* Two USB 3.0 ports

* 2 GB DDR-3 RAM (Configurable up to 8GB)

* 8G SSD HDD

* Internal Wireless Option with hidden Internal Antenna

The Devon TC6 supports thin client operating system software including Microsoft Windows[R] Embedded Standard (WES7) and Devon Terminal Operating System (DeTOS). The latest release of DeTOS includes powerful upgrades including wireless support, RDP 7.1, the latest Citrix Receiver 12, a new first boot wizard, and Devon Zero, a zero client configuration mode.

The new TC6, as with all VDI and thin client devices that run Devon IT's DeTOS or WES operating systems, can be managed by Devon IT's Echo thin client management software. Echo thin client 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. Among the many available settings that can be utilized is the ability to apply a password for the DeTOS control panel that prevents the end users from altering or creating connections, giving administrators greater ability to avoid end user error.

The TC6 with the AMD G series dual core processor and its discrete-level GPU is capable of handling a high level of display updates. Coupled with the latest high-quality remote access protocols such as Citrix ICA with HDX or Microsoft RemoteFX, the TC6 provides an ideal powerful and cost effective thin desktop for demanding users who require multi-monitor support, high-definition video, and use high throughput devices such as VOIP headsets.

"Our customers continue to show an increased interest in deploying thin clients for improved security and management," noted Ian Geiser, Devon IT's CTO. "However, they don't want to compromise on user experience. Devon IT's TC6 is fully capable of supporting the latest remote access protocols today but also is designed to handle future enhancements to virtual desktop technologies."

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

Partner and Customer Reviews

"The Devon IT TC6 thin client will allow our customers to take full advantage of the Citrix HDX experience with XenDesktop. With the full capabilities of HDX, Citrix provides the only desktop virtualization solution that can deliver a high-definition experience, allowing users to have the same experience with virtual desktops that they have come to expect from a traditional PC when using graphically-intensive or multimedia applications," said Chris Fleck, vice president of mobility solutions and alliances at Citrix. "Devon IT is a driving force in the thin client market and the TC6 continues the trend."

"As organizations continue to deploy virtualized, or session-based, desktops using Windows RemoteFX, client devices have to support a premium user experience for connected workers, while offering flexibility with an increasing variety of endpoint devices," said Dean Paron, Principal Group Program Manager, Windows Server and Virtualization, at Microsoft Corp. "Devices that support Windows RemoteFX enable remote workers to access any type of application or screen content, including rich media and 3D applications, and enjoy a local-like user experience over the LAN. Devon IT's new TC6 thin client device will help deliver an innovative RemoteFX solution to enterprises looking to maximize their IT investment."

"For virtual desktops to replace PCs, it is critical that the total CAPEX and OPEX cost per desktop be lower than a physical PC, while at the same time delivering a better than PC user experience. Traditionally, Thin clients and storage are the two largest cost components of virtual desktops," said Bernard Harguindeguy, CEO of Atlantis Computing. "Devon IT and Atlantis Computing solutions drive down the cost of virtual desktops and provide users with an amazing user experience. With energy efficient thin clients and Atlantis ILIO Diskless VDI that eliminates all storage from VDI, the power savings alone make it compelling to move to virtual desktops."

After comparisons with other leading thin client brands, ReMarx Medical Services adopted the new TC6 because of its advanced features and cost. "The TC6 is an ideal client to connect to remote virtual desktops hosted on a cloud," explained ReMarx Medical Services COO Richard Woodfield. "We were looking for a powerful desktop device to provide virtual desktop access for our employees. The TC6 provides very rich graphics in a thin client, making it a very powerful and cost-effective alternative to traditional desktop and current thin clients."
