Pano Logic Unveils Virtual Desktop
MENLO PARK, Calif. -- Pano Logic today announced the industrys first all hardware, no software desktop device, designed specifically for server-based desktop virtualization. Pano Logic has invented a purpose-built desktop virtualization architecture that surpasses todays desktop PC, leveraging the powerful trend toward server virtualization. The PanoTM device connects keyboard, mouse, display, audio and USB peripherals over an existing IP network to an instance of Microsoft Windows Vista or Windows XP running on a virtualized server. Moving all software off the desktop to the server, the Pano device has no CPU, no memory, no operating system and no drivers. Pano reduces desktop TCO by 70 percent and eliminates the desktop as a security risk. Using functionality enabled by server virtualization, Pano delivers not only a complete Microsoft Windows experience, including full USB support, but also a new set of high-value features not available with desktop PC and thin client architectures.
70 percent reduction in desktop TCO
By moving all software off the desktop and onto the server, Pano reduces desktop TCO by 70 percent -- saving $3200 per desktop over three years.
- Pano desktop devices have no software, so they require no software updates
- Physical visits to the desktop endpoint by IT personnel are eliminated
- Software installations and upgrades are performed centrally
