Pano Logic Expands Desktop Computing Platforms to Support Terminal Services and Simplify Cloud Migration

New Pano System for Cloud/Terminal Services 2.0 Enables Pano Zero Clients to Work With Any Server-Hosted Desktop Computing Solution, Including Microsoft and Citrix

REDWOOD CITY, CA--(Marketwire - Aug 29, 2012) - Pano Logic, the leader in zero client desktop virtualization and 'Desktop in the Cloud' computing, today announced Pano System for Cloud/Terminal Services 2.0, which dramatically expands customer choice by linking modern cloud-based computing with legacy terminal services resources, easing migration to the cloud.

By expanding its platform compatibility to include terminal services, Pano Logic now provides the only solution that can support all three major computing platforms, all utilizing a truly zero endpoint that contains no processor, operating system or moving parts. Innovative IT organizations trying to escape costly PC-based computing environments can migrate all of their users to a common Pano Zero Client endpoint architecture and then deliver a broad range of end user desktops through the cloud while still providing easy access to legacy Windows applications.

Pano Logic's core technology now enables Pano Zero Clients to function as endpoints for any form of server-hosted desktop -- ranging from full, virtualized Windows desktops, to Microsoft and Citrix terminal services, and even to browser-based cloud desktops -- and it provides an easy migration path between them. The new software release also includes free enrollment in a cloud-based remote server management console called Pano Cloud portal. The portal enables IT managers to monitor and manage their Pano endpoints and cloud servers from any Internet-connected browser worldwide.

"Desktop computing is increasingly moving into the cloud but organizations still need flexibility to meet a mix of end user needs and desires today while laying a foundation for the future," John Kish, President and CEO of Pano Logic, said. "Pano Logic is out front in helping organizations prepare for the future. Our technology leads the marketplace with a simple, cost-effective migration path to the cloud and the first universal, zero client endpoint that is fully compatible with multiple server-based desktop computing vendors."

Zero Complexity, Multiple Environments

With Pano System for Cloud/Terminal Services 2.0, enterprises that have experimented with thin clients can migrate from those complex environments to Pano Zero Clients, still utilizing their RDP or XenApp investments but realizing the benefits of fully centralized management and an endpoint device that requires no maintenance or configuration.

Pano Logic's Pano Zero Client represents the only true zero client endpoint device on the market for desktop virtualization and cloud desktop computing. They consume 97 percent less power than PCs, 50 percent less power than thin clients or other so-called zero clients, and never store data or run software locally, eliminating endpoint security risks.

These Zero Clients are designed to support Pano Logic's two main offerings. Pano System for VDI is a complete end-to-end, hardware-and-software virtual desktop solution best suited for users that require a full Windows desktop. Pano System for Cloud/Terminal Services is software for organizations moving to web-based applications. It eliminates the need for a local operating system and central processing unit, delivering web-based cloud desktops using Google's Chrome browser.

Zero-Touch Management

The new release of Pano System for Cloud/Terminal Services 2.0 provides IT managers with broad new powers to manage and monitor their endpoints and servers from almost anywhere. Using the free Pano Cloud portal, authorized admins can monitor Pano Zero and Virtual Clients, managing desktop security and device settings via the portal's management console. By moving management to the cloud, administrators now have the flexibility to deploy headless appliances throughout their organization and then manage them from anywhere.

Other software enhancements in the release include:

  • Expanded client profile options to improve endpoint security and flexibility
  • New controls for end users to manage device settings
  • Automated software update capabilities for Linux, Google Chrome and Pano components
  • Updated Pano Virtual Client, which is used to repurpose PCs as zero clients, making it simpler to deploy with little or no IT resources

Pano System for Cloud/Terminal Services 2.0 will be available on September 5, 2012. For more information, visit http://www.panologic.com/pano-system/ts
