Samsung has introduced its latest desktop virtualization display models for Citrix Synergy 2012. Samsung will be showcasing three S-series models (TS190C, TS220C, TS240C), which include an embedded Citrix zero client, and one B-series model (TB-CH) designed to be used in conjunction with a legacy monitors. Samsung has added a couple of improvements including fast booting, simple configuration and automatic updates to enhance the efficiency and manageability of the displays. In case you didn’t know how these displays work, these Citrix-dedicated monitors offer desktop virtualization.
Virtualization allows companies to create Windows systems that runs off a centralized server, without the need for deploying full-fledged computers in the workplace. Because Windows is executed virtually on a central server, users can also access their desktop environment from device such as a personal computer, tablet PC, smartphone or… a client such as this monitor.
Citrix is a company that provides server and desktop virtualization and cloud computing technologies to more than 230,000 organizations around the world.. In addition to that, Samsung is also planning to release a SyncMaster cloud display embedded with a Citrix HDX-capable SoC from Texas Instruments sometime in the third quarter this year.
Samsung said that it expects its SoC-based SyncMaster cloud display to be HDX-ready when available. “Our goal is to achieve the number one market position for cloud displays within the next six years,” said Tod Pike, Senior Vice President of Enterprise Business Division at Samsung. And this is tough business: HP just released an 18.5″ HP T410 ($) competing zero-client product that is similar, except that it supports more than just Citrix.Follow:ComputersSamsung
