Thin Client Software: Finding The Best VDI Solution

Thin Client Software: Finding The Best VDI Solution

Finding the right Thin Client Software or Zero Client Software is equally as important as finding the right VDI (virtual desktop infrastructure) devices themselves. If you work in Information Technology and have anything to do with VDI solutions, you are probably already aware of this. But, have you really given any thought as to what to look for in a VDI software management tool? And if so, how do you know when you’re getting the best? Whether you have or have not thought about these concerns, the below list can help.

Here’s an overview of what you should look for in software management for both Thin Clients and Zero Clients:

User Friendly

To begin with, you're going to want easy single manager server installation. A best practice is to be able to implement the program and begin using it in less than one hour, whether Thin Client Software or Zero Client Software. Other essentials include ease of integration, secure login system, understandable install guide, and a detailed graphical user interface.

Traditional Network Management Features

Your Thin or Zero Client Software should be able to configure, maintain, control, and even report from Linux and Windows based Clients. Central, automated discovery and configuration features should streamline group management and monitoring of devices. Of course, you'll want to be able to manage your Clients from major web browsers with ease of use. Support for scheduled tasks including firmware updates and Wake-on-LAN (WOL) support are also key.

Internet Cloud Management Feature

Nowadays, if you can't manage remote locations and you need to, you're in trouble. Look for Thin Client Software or Zero Client Software that can support internet connectivity, so that you can manage offsite locations like small office and home networks. Thin Client and Zero Client end users who are "out of network" should certainly be able to be handled and managed in the same manner as traditional managed networks.

Customer Service Focus

Let's face it, you're going to have questions and bumps in the road. If you find a technology partner that does not charge for Thin or Zero Client Management Software, good. If you find one that does not charge, and has an easy-to-understand, available U.S.-based support team, better. If you find one that has all of the above, plus a no-registration, 3-year warranty and advance replacement on devices, best!

Thin Client Software and Zero Client Software programs should be easy to work with and expedite management of your Thin and Zero VDI Clients with efficiency, while providing central maintenance and full administrative control. Be sure to consider the above key features when conducting your research for the best software management tool. A great way to consider what you may be purchasing or planning to use is to ask the technology partner for a free demonstration of their software. You’ll be glad you did.
