Universities Choose Thin Clients with Raydesk to Cut Costs

Share Article

Raydesk, a virtual desktop solution based on open source components, has been selected by universities and other public organizations to power energy saving thin-client infrastructures. Raydesk is capable of integrating applications from many different operating systems (including Linux and Windows) on one user workspace. The recently released new version, Raydesk 3.0, further simplifies deployment and administration in academic environments, while bringing a number of new features for end-users.

The Raydesk virtual desktop is unique in that it is not, as opposed to other VDI products, tied to a specific operating system. Instead, it fully supports a broad range of platforms and allows for the utilisation of all of their advantages in one session. This means the Raydesk virtual desktop is capable of running applications from MS Windows, Linux, Solaris, and also AS400, QNX and others.

How Raydesk Works

Raydesk uses a VDI method based on the premise that all applications, including the operating system environment itself, run on a server which delivers them to users using LAN. The advantage of this solution is in the freedom of choice – a user can be connected through a regular PC, or a thin client. Raydesk is a highly secure environment with low system requirements. When compared to other VDI platforms, Raydesk brings the benefit of a dramatic growth in employee productivity. Employees are limited to applications they need for their work – users will not find any menus or applications on their desktops that would not be related to their work assignment.

Major New Features in Raydesk 3.0

  • Raydesk 3.0 mainly provides employees with a more comfortable user experience. Users will be able to use a completely redesigned control panel that will simplify tasks, such as the maintenance of workspaces or - application windows. Another new feature is the so-called Raydesk Drag Arena which allows users to quickly launch programmes.
  • Raydesk offers a new model of handling windows that supports the so-called seamless RDP mode for access to MS Windows applications.

“We're taking the new version to the market following almost a year of intensive work. We believe the improvements will bring significant benefits to users. I am very well aware of the fact that a number of our customers have postponed their purchase of a VDI solution to wait for the new features of Raydesk 3,” says Filip Korbel, Stickfish CEO. “The Raydesk virtual desktop is an optimal fit for today's trend to lower investments and increase employee efficacy, as it is necessary to look for reserves everywhere,” adds Korbel.
