The German language blog www.vireference.de published an article which compares the three different kinds of Teradici hardware zero clients for VMware View. The main devices are: Class 1 (eVGA, Leadtek, Wyse P20), Class 2 (DevonIT, Verari) and Class 3 (Samsung thin client monitors). Beside the technical information, the article describes the compatibility for View 4. It should be possible to use Google translation for this article.
Fujitsu teamed-up with the hardware vendor PanoLogic to deliver a zero client monitor device for desktop virtualization. The companies will produce a client device which contains connectors for network, keyboard and mouse.
Back in August 2009 Devon IT released the VDI Blaster software to help companies to repurpose personal computers into thin clients. The new version 1.1 now supports VMware View 4 and the PC-over-IP (PCoIP) protocol which gives users a true PC like experience, including multimedia. The new version also includes the ability to boot the VDI blaster software from a USB key or a CD-ROM in addition to the network installation.
