Pano Logic device offers more desktop virtualisation options

Zero client vendor provides more flexibility with

Pano Logic has launched a new version of its zero-client device, supporting video and Citrix virtualisation for the first time,

According to Parmeet Chaddha, VP of Engineering for Pano Logic, Pano System 4 will offer greater flexibility to desktop virtualisation customers. "For the first time, our customers will have the option of Citrix XenDesktop and as well as Microsoft Hyper-V and VMware vSphere. Our policy is to provide choice and our system means that users are not tied to a particular hypervisor vendor."

He said that the new device incorporated many requests from customers, particularly with regards to voice over IP, "VoIP was something that was much requested. They wanted to be able to use headphones with the appliances. In addition," he added, "customers will be able to use dual monitors for the first time and we have also introduced a fourth USB port."

A key aspect of the new device is an enhanced service offering. "We've created a free version of support, this includes all software upgrades for a year," said Chaddha. "After that, upgrades are available at just $20 a seat," he added.

The device will continue to offer low levels of power consumption, said Chaddha. "At only 6w per appliance, the power cionsumption is by an order of magnitude better than any PC."

Pano Logic's zero client approach has been warmly praised by analysts. "For years, customers have hesitated to embrace desktop virtualisation while the major vendors battle over protocols, standards and architectures that force companies to lock into a vendor instead of a business strategy," said John Abbott, chief architect of The 451 Group. "Pano Logic removes most of this customer risk and complexity with its zero client open architecture approach.

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
