Low-cost, dual monitor thin client with Gigabit LAN and faster processor verified as Citrix Ready
ORLANDO, Florida and AUSTIN, Texas, January 8, 2019 — All Media For Immediate Release
Today ClearCube® Technology, Inc. an American technology leader in centralized computing and desktop virtualization announces at Citrix Summit 2019 in Orlando, the launch of the new C3xPi Thin Client. The only low-cost, virus-proof, single-case dual monitor thin client in the market, based on Raspberry Pi® 3 Model B+, has been verified as Citrix Ready.
The C3xPi Thin Client features include Cloud Desktop Operating System, 1.4 GHz Broadcom BCM2837B0 64-bit CPU, 8 GB high-speed microSD card, and Broadcom VideoCore IV GPU and two full-size HDMI® 1.3 ports for graphics and full-motion HD video playback (1920 ×1080) on two displays. Network features include Gigabit Ethernet over USB 2.0, 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz 802.11.b/g/n/ac WLAN, and Bluetooth 4.2 (BLE). Additional connectors include three USB 2.0 ports and one 3.5 mm audio jack.
“Performance is fast: From unboxing to working on Citrix desktops, it’s just a matter of minutes”, said Doug Layne VP of Global Sales. “Its high speed and performance, breadth of networking features, and its low cost make the C3xPi a compelling VDI solution for many Citrix customer use cases like enterprise, education, healthcare, state and local government, and kiosk applications” he said.
The patent pending C3xPi set itself apart from competitors by being the only true dual monitor Raspberry Pi-based thin client in the market. Featuring two full-size HDMI® 1.3 ports the C3xPi eliminates the need for extra video, display adapters and power cords, plus the included VESA mount allows for easy attachment to computer monitors (for both 75 mm and 100 mm VESA hole patterns) and under desks.
Optimized for Citrix, the C3xPi thin client comes with the Citrix Workspace Hub, and delivers an outstanding HDX experience, enables hardware-accelerated H.264 decoding for dual monitors, and lowers CPU consumption by offloading video decompression from its CPU to its native hardware.
“ClearCube is a Citrix Ready partner, which makes it easier for customers to select the most suitable virtualization infrastructure products for their specific needs.,” says Christopher Fleck, VP & Citrix Technical Fellow, Emerging Solutions, Citrix Systems, Inc. “By taking part in our program, ClearCube has enabled our joint customers to obtain the highest quality user experience available today, and the simplest means for making an informed product purchasing selection.”
The cost of many projects can increase quickly when hardware is added, but the C3xPi Thin Client is truly an exception. Based on the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+, the list price of the C3xPi is just $179.95, helping IT administrators to lower their capital expenditures, and ensuring client devices are no obstacle to VDI deployments.
Featuring Cloud Desktop OS and Cloud Desktop Management powered by Stratodesk, the C3xPi makes it fast and easy for organizations and companies of all sizes to immediately benefit from VDI client computing. Organizations can use Cloud Desktop OS at all stages of the VDI deployment—from re-purposing existing desktops as thin clients, to powering the C3xPi Thin Client, to supporting other ClearCube thin client models. ClearCube’s Cloud Desktop Management solution provides administrators with a browser-based interface for client grouping, client configuration inheritance, and automatic client updates over the network. Cloud Desktop Management enables administrators to reduce costs, deploy IT assets, and manage them with ease.
