HP adds to Zero Client range


HP has announced a second model in its t410 Zero Client family, along with new software for optimising thin client networks.

Not to be confused with the HP t410 All-in-One Smart Zero Client that was announced last month, the HP t410 Smart Zero Client supports two displays (at up to 1920x1080 pixels) and all major virtualisation protocols.

Intended for use as part of a desktop virtualisation system, the t410 Smart Zero Client is said by HP officials to give a "PC-like experience" through the use of a a high-performance Texas Instruments TMS320DM8148 ARM Cortex processor along with DSP Acceleration and ARM Neon extensions.

"The t410 Smart Zero Client enables customers to cost-effectively offer workers the same computing experience as a full PC environment without requiring on-device management," said Jeff Groudan, HP's director of marketing for thin clients. "The t410 is an ideal solution for call centres, education, healthcare, government and hospitality environments that value reliability, zero management and energy efficiency."

Shipments of the t410 Smart Zero Client are scheduled to begin in August, with prices starting at $US269.

HP also announced HP Velocity, quality-of-service software that will be preinstalled on the company's t410, t510 and t610 series of thin and zero clients. Corresponding software is also installed in the data centre.

Velocity helps optimise thin client networks by correcting packet-loss errors without requiring packet retransmission, and by providing the information network administrators need to correct any problems that may arise.

"The use of HP thin clients running the new HP Velocity software improved the thin client performance over our network, which handles a mix of wireless, mobile data and other types of communications," said Stacey Squire, ITC infrastructure manager at RCR Tomlinson, an early adopter of Velocity. "We're impressed by HP Velocity's ability to monitor, report and correct in real time any packet-loss issues our network may have."

Security requirements such as confidentiality, integrity and authentication have become mandatory in most industries.

Data encryption methods previously used only by military and intelligence services have become common practice in all data transfer networks across all platforms, in all industries where information is sensitive and vital (financial and government institutions, critical infrastructure, data centres, and service providers).
