Lenovo (News - Alert), a PC maker and a personal technology company, has unveiled the new Lenovo ThinkCentre M32 Thin Client designed specifically for users looking for a value offering that provides a desktop virtualization offering.
Lenovo explained that its Thin Clients, which are built with a broad range of features and functionalities, are ideal for those that demand a desktop alternative for the branch office or local campus. Thin Clients also deliver lower capital investments and can reduce management and maintenance costs, and there are no virtual possibilities for security risks from viruses, spyware or theft because the data is stored on the network and not in the system.
The newly released ThinkCentre M32 is powered by the Intel (News - Alert) Celeron Platform and it runs on either a Linux-based, thin-client operating system, LeTOS, or a Windows Embedded Standard 7 OS. It features Lenovo Terminal Manager (LTM) for effective software management and includes rich legacy port support.
Victor Rios, vice president and general manager of Think desktop, workstation, and visuals, said, “The ThinkCentre M32 is a small form factor thin client that adds value to our quality desktop products and helps enterprises meet end-to-end IT solutions for desktop virtualization. It has the Energy Star 5.2 green certification, making it great energy-saving solution at a great value for virtual desktop environments.”
The new thin client offers benefits like flexibility, ease of deployment and integration, low lifecycle management cost, centralized maintenance, enhanced security for corporate and end-user data, enterprise level functionality at minimal cost, easy management of data and hardware assets with centralized processing, increased internal data security and more.
Devon IT, which has been roped in by Lenovo to help in the development of advanced thin client software solutions, said that they have always been proponents of hosted computing and centralized management as a way for IT managers to reduce costs.
