Stratodesk, leader in delivering VDI, Cloud, and IoT endpoint solutions, today announced the official support for the Windows Virtual Desktop Linux Client on Stratodesk NoTouch software for both x86 and ARM/Raspberry Pi. Stratodesk is the first technology provider worldwide to ever support WVD Linux client on both architectures, as well as the first ever to support WVD on Raspberry Pi.
Stratodesk’s History of Innovation – WVD and the Raspberry Pi
Those who have followed Stratodesk’s meteoric rise to the top in the EUC space will already be familiar with our history of innovation that follows, including great advancements made in enabling work from any device. Stratodesk was the first EUC technology provider to deliver a real, functioning and indeed advanced VDI/Cloud based Thin Client experience to workers worldwide on the Raspberry Pi.
As enterprises look to migrate their Windows instances to the Cloud, they will also need to enable Cloud based consumption of Windows 10 to end users using a variety of different devices. As device form factors continue to expand and develop beyond what was first traditional PCs, and then Thin Clients, the next evolutionary step is, naturally, ARM/Raspberry Pi.
Notable mentions where Stratodesk software has been used effectively in production environments include those with Raspberry Pi Thin Client leaders ClearCube, NComputing and the revolutionary Citrix Ready workspace hub project.
Today, IT leaders rely on Stratodesk software to streamline Windows Virtual Desktop endpoint deployments on any device. Stratodesk enables secure access to Microsoft Azure to end users remotely on x86, ARM and Raspberry Pi.
Advantages of Stratodesk and WVD Linux Client on Raspberry Pi
The Raspberry Pi offers unique benefits thanks to its reduced cost and high native security. Its bare bones design comes available at a fraction of the cost of competing x86 PCs and Thin Clients, while offering a dizzying array of modern features enterprises need, including dual monitor support, 4k and more. Already successfully leveraged in production deployments around the world, the Raspberry Pi is the ideal compliment to Stratodesk and WVD deployments.
While WVD presents itself as the ideal way to consume Windows 10 instances in the Cloud, Stratodesk makes managing and streamlining thousands of endpoints anywhere easy thanks to the no hassle management center and secure, Linux based OS. Together, the integrated solutions also offer an incredible value proposition to enterprises by enabling remote work. In addition to connecting remote workers to Azure-hosted Windows 10 instances without needing Windows on the endpoint, Stratodesk enables a host of added benefits to imbue IT leaders with the essentials they need to make remote work more effective than ever. These benefits include support for top VPNs, as well as add-ons like Cloud Xtension and NoTouch Go – the USB-based, bootable NoTouch endpoint.
