VDI Blaster™ from Devon IT is software that converts PCs into secure, centrally manageable thin clients that can connect to centrally hosted desktops or applications. PCs repurposed with VDI Blaster are immune to viruses and totally stateless. Organizations of all sizes can deploy VDI Blaster™ to:
Repurpose old PCs
Extend the life of PCs (and their original capital investment)
Experience the benefits of virtual desktop and thin client environments at a fraction of the price of a vast, new PC or thin client deployment.
How Does VDI Blaster™ Work?
VDI Blaster works in different ways, outlined below.
Dual boot with Windows XP
VDI Blaster can be used without taking the risk of erasing your existing Windows installation. To install VDI Blaster, just execute the installer on the PC you want to repurpose. After installation, the PC reboots by default in thin client mode, running Devon IT’s Terminal Operating System (DeTOS™).
In this mode repurposed PCs can be managed with Devon IT’s Thin Client Management Software. But it is still possible to reboot repurposed PCs in Windows XP mode and uninstall DeTOS to return the PC to its initial configuration (with Windows XP as the only OS).
VDI Blaster can be installed via a USB drive. This is very useful to test compatibility with your PC before “blasting” it.
Users can also perform a full hard drive installation.
