ViewSonic Creates Cost-Effective Path to Cloud Computing With New MultiClient(TM) Hardware Offerings, Industry Partnerships
WALNUT, CA, Apr 11, 2012 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) --
ViewSonic Corp., a leading global provider of computing, consumer
electronics and communications solutions, is expanding its
cost-effective MultiClient computing offerings today with the
addition of greater connectivity options with its VMA15 and VMA25
MultiClient Adapters, along with software support for either Userful
MultiSeat Linux 2011(TM) or Microsoft(R) MultiPoint(R) WMS2011.
Following MultiClient's unveiling at ISTE 2011, ViewSonic has made it
even easier for educators and businesses to create and manage their
own private cloud computing environments. With this scalable
solution, users can simultaneously power up to 20 high performance
independent user stations (with monitors, mice and keyboards) from
just one host server, tapping into a cost-effective virtual cloud
environment. As compared to the one user per PC alternative,
MultiClient significantly lowers the cost per seat, reduces energy
costs, and virtually eliminates support, update and maintenance
Today, ViewSonic adds the availability of two new zero client
plug-and-play adapters. The VMA15 enables customers to connect
multiple computer stations to a single host computer directly over
USB (for a close-proximity, "one room" solution with up to 10 users
per server) while the LAN-based VMA25 connects up to 20 stations
throughout a building to a single PC in the server room via the
Ethernet. Both energy-efficient adapters include four USB ports
enabling the connection of multiple peripherals.
"With our MultiClient solution, budgetary and IT management setbacks
are addressed and compatibility issues are eliminated, making it
ideal for the computing needs of everything from computer labs,
classrooms, and libraries to budget-conscious SMBs," said Erik
Willey, LCD monitor and PC product marketing director for ViewSonic.
"Today's expansion of our VMA line of zero clients is just another
testament of our commitment to delivering our customers all the
benefits of traditional thin client computing, but with higher
performance, and at lower costs."
To get started, just connect the MultiClient Adapter box to a monitor
with keyboard and mouse, and then plug into the host server. The
ViewSonic MultiClient components are available now for respective
ESPs of $1149-$1781 for the VMS700 server, $91-$167 for the VMA15
adapter and $121-$194 for the VMA25 adapter, depending on the CPU
selected and preference of software licensing. For more information
