NoTouch Desktop Features and Benefits
What are the hardware requirements for NoTouch OS?
NoTouch OS runs on 99% of all x86 desktop hardware including Intel (desktop and Atom), AMD and VIA CPUs. NoTouch OS also works on the Raspberry Pi and is the official operating system of the Citrix Workspace Hub, distributed by our OEM partners ViewSonic and NComputing. NoTouch OS prevents hardware lockdown and keeps you free to incorporate the widest variety of devices.
How is NoTouch Desktop installed and deployed?
NoTouch can be booted in Live Mode (without touching the underlying OS) or installed on the device’s hard disk or flash drive. Live Mode boot options include booting from USB or CD-ROM or using PXE (Network) boot. The same options can also be used to install and deploy NoTouch Desktop. Most of our customers use USB boot for testing purposes and take advantage of the PXE boot server when rolling out NoTouch onto thousands of PCs. For enterprises that need to install at scale, we also offer a MSI installer package that can be rolled out without any third party tools or user interaction.
How does NoTouch save me money?
NoTouch OS saves on costs by eliminating the need for expensive Thin Clients or newly purchased devices. With NoTouch OS you also save on Windows licensing costs, Windows endpoint management software licenses and on anti-virus software. NoTouch Center saves you time and money by removing barriers to installation and management.
What systems does NoTouch Center run on?
Most people run NoTouch Center from their server. We also offer an easy-to-use installer for Windows systems (desktop or server). NoTouch Center can run wherever you have a Java Virtual Machine.
What VDI environments are supported?
NoTouch Desktop gives complete access to cloud hosted desktops and VDI infrastructures including Citrix, VMware, Oracle, Microsoft and more.
How about Security?
NoTouch OS is Linux based which means it is essentially impervious to common malware attacks and security threats facing PCs, Laptops and Thin Clients. It also defends against Third Party Applications, which makes it very unlikely for a security breach to occur.
How is NoTouch Desktop managed?
NoTouch endpoints are managed with NoTouch Center, the browser based administration software that helps IT administrators manage, configure and update converted PCs, Thin Clients, laptops and Raspberry Pis –all from one place. By supporting inheritance of settings, groups can be created, configured and kept in sync easily. NoTouch Center also supports multiple user roles, monitoring, asset management / inventory, Helpdesk and other features you would expect from an enterprise-grade product.
How is NoTouch Licensed?
NoTouch is licensed on a one time payment based on the total number of machines in your VDI, along with an annual subscription fee.
