- Virtual Notebooks Deliver Security, IT Simplicity & Lower Total Cost of Ownership
GAINESVILLE, Virginia, March 9, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- NCS Technologies, Inc. (www.ncst.com), an innovative American computing systems manufacturer, today announced UK availability of the Cirrus LT zero client laptop. Cirrus LT is highly secure and delivers all the functionality PC users demand. The laptop has a 14-inch screen, 6-cell battery, available docking station, integrated smart card reader and Wi-Fi options – optimized for UK users.
Thin client and zero client end users access office productivity applications – such as email, word processing, spreadsheets and electronic presentations – that are hosted in data centers. Zero client PCs are differentiated by having no operating system, no local storage and don't retain persistent data. Antivirus protection is not necessary. IT departments that implement zero client technology reduce maintenance and administrative complexity and realize a lower total cost of ownership.
Cirrus LT uses the Teradici PCoIP® protocol to ensure superior computing performance. PCoIP compresses, encrypts and encodes the computing experience at the data center and transmits only pixels across the network to the end user. PC users have secure, fully functional access to all applications. Cirrus LT takes advantage of the strongest security protocols, AES-256 cryptography and NSA Suite B ciphers.
Engineered for a highly efficient administrative experience, Cirrus LT works with VMware Horizon View and Amazon WorkSpaces cloud services. The laptop supports copper, fiber and Wi-Fi connectivity.
Cirrus LT will be showcased at the Cloud Expo Europe event 11-12 March, ExCel, London, Stand 126.
Cirrus LT is distributed by Getech Ltd., the UK's leading value added distributor for thin client technology. Cirrus LT launched in the U.S. in 2014 and is focused on government, finance and healthcare – and other segments where users demand security, mobility and efficiency.
NCS is the world leader in delivering mobile PCoIP devices. In addition, NCS offers an end-to-end portfolio of Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) solutions. NCS also manufactures commercial-off-the-shelf computers, high-end workstations, ruggedized PCs and servers, custom-built high-performance servers and computers for the military.
