Today we have a guest post from our partners in the HP Thin Client team.
At Microsoft TechEd Berlin last fall, HP – the worldwide leader in thin client shipments – was the first thin client manufacturer to showcase a technology demonstration of a hardware-based RFX solution. Building on this leadership, HP is announcing today the availability of its first thin client featuring WES7 SP1 with RDP 7.1 to enable RemoteFX, the HP t5740e Thin Client.
Through a software-based implementation, integrating Microsoft RemoteFX (RFX) technology enables the HP t5740e Thin Client to deliver a richer, local-like user experience for Microsoft Remote Desktop Services Session Host (previously known as Terminal Server) desktop and virtual desktop infrastructure customers. By leveraging the power of virtualized graphics and advanced codecs, remote workers are able to access any type of application or screen content, including rich media and 3D applications.
The HP t5740e Thin Client offers a top-notch user experience, flexible expansion and high reliability for Microsoft client virtualization environments, and comes pre-loaded with the industry’s most comprehensive management solutions. The t5740e Thin Client includes support for local applications and a full browser, as well as strengthened security with a choice of enhanced file-based write filters.
More exciting developments on this topic to come – so stay tuned.
What about a Universal Print Driver from HP for this model? Have spent a good amount of time attempting to track one down referencing HP's website and documentation and have had no luck.
RemoteFX will certainly deliver a great experience for LAN users accessing multimedia with VDI. For access over WANs though, organizations with remote users should consider complementing it with Ericom Blaze, a software-based RDP acceleration and compression product. It accelerates RDP by up to 25x and is ideal for remote users connecting over slow WANs who need to access graphics-rich content and applications. It works with any standard RDP host, including VDI, Terminal Servers and remote physical machines.
You can use RemoteFX for your LAN users, and at the same time use Ericom Blaze over RDP for your slow WAN users. This combined solution can provide enhanced performance in both types of environments.
