ThinPoint breaks the VDI mould, providing a new, more cost-effective and more easy to manage approach to desktop virtualisation.
In traditional VDI, each user gets their own virtual operating system and desktop. With ThinPoint, a single operating system instance is shared between users, significantly reducing licencing, maintenance, storage and backup resources.
This approach makes deployment much quicker and easier too - only one operating system to install; one system to configure; reduced hardware requirements for the server.
ThinPoint builds multiple VPDs over a single physical hardware platform and single operating system instance. Each user has their own VPD which provides access to the applications or desktop which they need. This approach offers a higher level of software compatibility, session density, overall performance and manageability than traditional VDI systems.
Publishing with ThinPoint is a simple process. The administrator just chooses an application, folder or desktop, then specifies any initial options such as start-up folder or application arguments. Then the authorised users are established, and on completion the app/folder/desktop is immediately available to the relevant users.
Applications may need to invoke further applications. For example, a browser session for the corporate intranet may give access to MS Office documents. When the user chooses such a file, the relevant MS Office application will start up whithin the ThinPoint session if enabled.
ThinPoint can be used in a number of different ways. Download this document which discusses varous deployment scenarios and shows how simple it is to deploy ThinPoint.
