ViewSonic Introduces a Simple and Cost-Effective VDI Solution, the SC-U25 Value VDI Client
Bundled with Userful Multiplatform™ Software and ViewSonic's Award-Winning Hardware, the SC-U25 Features Easy Installation and Flexible Management, Making it the Ideal Entry-Level VDI Solution
Brea, CA, U.S.A. and Calgary, Alberta, Canada, November 6, 2014 - ViewSonic Corp., a leading global provider of visual solution products, introduces the SC-U25 Value VDI Client with Userful Multiplatform™ software for easy and cost-effective Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) deployment. Working with Userful Corporation to integrate its Userful Multiplatform™ virtualization software, ViewSonic's SC-U25 is an easy plug-and-play LAN client that supports Gigabit Ethernet-based installation for easy deployment and simple management. The SC-U25 is ideal for education settings including libraries, labs and classrooms; SMBs including service businesses, medical and dental offices, and call centers; as well as hotel business centers that need low-cost and flexible options for a virtual desktop or cloud computing-based environment.
The SC-U25 is optimized to support a mix of virtualized desktops like Microsoft Windows® (XP/7/8), Chrome-style sessions, or the included pre-configured Linux®, digital signage and cloud desktops connected to multiple displays in a local area network. The SC-U25 delivers high performance, allowing up to 20 users per PC server. This translates to better security with lower maintenance and service costs.
Userful Multiplatform provides many high-end innovative features, such as N+1 redundancy, allowing IT administrators to assign all deployed SC-U25 clients to corresponding host servers and redundant failover severs. If the main host server is ever down, continued operation is ensured for all end-client users, providing for a reliable virtual desktop environment. A RJ45 Gigabit Ethernet delivers an impressive rich interactive user experience of multimedia content, and four USB ports deliver flexible connectivity options for multiple peripherals and displays providing optimal productivity. Headphone and mic outputs enhance the multimedia functionality of the SC-U25.
"By introducing the SC-U25 Value VDI Client, ViewSonic has developed the ideal value VDI solution that is simple and cost-effective to deploy," said Mike Holstein, vice president of business development and emerging technologies for ViewSonic Americas. "The SC-U25 Value VDI Client offers functional yet high-end key features needed to set-up VDI environments. Especially for education organizations and SMBs that want to upgrade but have not due to budget constraints and management expertise. By working with Userful to bundle their Multiplatform software, all the tools for deploying, operating and managing a virtual desktop environment are provided in one simple solution."
"The SC-U25 value client bundle is ideal to transition organizations into a virtual desktop infrastructure, providing industry leading cost, simplicity, and platform flexibility," said Tim Griffin, chief technical officer at Userful Corporation. "With over 1 million seats deployed, Userful is a proven solution that streamlines and manages deployments – simply and trouble-free."
