HP introduces thin clients and desktop virtualization services
HP hs introduced new mobile thin client hardware, extended software offerings and deeper industry alliances in the virtualization market segment.

The new HP 2533t Mobile Thin Client (pictured) combines thin client and business notebook technologies to enhance data security and improve both ease of use and reliability.

The HP 2533t provides enhanced access to virtual computing solutions, such as blade PCs or a virtual desktop infrastructure, and increased protection of corporate data and software applications by storing files on a secure, centralized server.

No data resides on the actual mobile thin client, since the HP 2533t is a solid-state system with flash memory and no moving parts.

The HP 2533t weighs only three pounds and features a 12.1-inch diagonal widescreen LED display, adding a smaller and lighter option to the portfolio’s previously introduced 15.4-inch HP 6720t Mobile Thin Client. Integrated Wi-Fi certified WLAN provides access to the Internet, email and instant messaging while at work, home or any favorite hotspot, along with support for 3G broadband wireless via PC memory card slot.

In addition, HP announced a portfolio of Citrix-Ready thin clients and blade client products is now available with Citrix XenDesktop, as well as being certified by VMware Inc. for compatibility with its VMware Virtual Desktop Infrastructure.

HP also is also announcing plans to further invest in the advanced multimedia technology on which the HP Remote Graphics Software (RGS) was created. HP is working with virtualization software vendors to expand the technology to significantly enhance the rich multimedia experience available through thin clients or other remote devices.

Rather than sending user data or graphics commands that grow with image complexity, the RGS software captures the desktop image of the remote or “virtual” system and transmits it over a standard network to a window on a local thin client using advanced image compression technology, specifically designed for text, digital imagery and high frame-rate video applications.

While HP’s thin clients have long been deployed in Citrix environments, the company’s full thin client, blade PC and workstation portfolio has been designated “Citrix Ready” to ensure a simple and reliable Citrix experience.

In addition, HP thin clients are certified for the new Citrix XenDesktop appliance program across the line, with the HP Compaq t5730 Thin Client delivering the “Desktop Appliance Plus” experience and verified Citrix-Ready for Citrix Password Manager, Citrix XenApp (Citrix Presentation Server 4.0 & 4.5), Citrix XenDesktop and an embedded Desktop Receiver.

Citrix XenDesktop enables organizations to virtualize Windows desktops in the data center and deliver them on-demand to office workers in any location. This provides a flexible and streamlined software architecture for users working from remote locations, ensuring high-speed application across virtual infrastructures.
