Zero Client

What is a zero client?

The Yulong zero client (also called the ultra-thin client) contains no moving parts but only the necessary hardware & firmware to initialize a conversation with the network, begin network protocol processes, and display desktop output. It centralizes all software, processing, and management to just what is running on the host, leaving little more than a keyboard, mouse, and monitor at a user’s desk. As a result, it requires no driver to install, no patch management, and no local operating system licensing fees or updates. The device consumes very little power and is tamper-resistant and completely incapable of storing any data locally, providing a more secure endpoint.

Benefits By Replacing PCs With Zero Clients

Reduce purchase costs

The initial acquisition costs are saved when replacing PCs with Yulong zero clients which cost less than half the price of entry-level PCs.

Greater Energy Saving

The Yulong zero clients consume only 5 watts and produce much less heat, providing at least an 80% savings in energy consumption and air conditioning over PCs.

Longer refresh cycles

The obsolescence-free feature of zero clients proves longer desktop refresh cycles, saving both refresh budgets and cutting refresh time from weeks to hours.

Central management

There is nothing for IT to configure, manage, or update at the endpoint. All installations, patches & updates are done on a single host. One IT staff can handle 5 times as many devices and users compared to PCs.

Quick desktop delivery

Yulong zero clients are essentially plug-and-play devices. Out of the box, they require only minutes to set up and seconds to boot. After a keyboard, mouse, and monitor are connected, the zero client workstation is ready to be utilized.

Remote support

IT and support staff can provide support or fix problems right from their desks, eliminating the costs and delays of having to travel to remote user locations.

Reduce downtime

With no failure-prone parts and desktop-related problems, unplanned endpoint downtime is greatly reduced. Even when turn faulty, the zero client can be placed, helping the user back to work in seconds.

Desktop roaming

No time is wasted on moving a heavy laptop or rebooting the system. With a simple log-off and then log-in from any zero client, the user’s back at his desktop with all open applications and files still in place.

File sharing

With some disks configured visible to all, users can share and store files easily on these public disks without the need to copy or transfer between desktops.

Eliminate virus infection

With no resident OS or storage capable of running software, the zero client provides a completely secure endpoint that is immune to viruses and other malware.

Security policies

IT staff can apply security policies, monitor, and disable end users from logging in or lock-down locally connected USB peripherals, preventing users from copying confidential data to removable storage.

No risk of data lost

Since the Yuong zero clients cannot store any data locally, users are free of worrying about data loss stemming from hardware failure or laptop/PC theft.

Free desktop footprint

The Yulong zero client is only a cellphone size and can be mounted on the back of the monitor to save valuable space on the desktop.

No Noise on working

Without any storage and fan, the vCloudPoint zero client makes no noise when running, making a peaceful working environment.

Less heat and e-waste

Consuming much less energy meaning the Yulong zero client produces much less heat and e-waste when compared to standard PCs.

Unique Features

Where we outperform our competitors

Easy to Set up, Use and Manage

Yulong zero clients are extremely easy to set up, use, and manage. There is only the CloudS Server Manager or the Virspire Desktop Agent to run on the system. The software installation is so easy in just one click. There are no configurations needed to be done at the endpoints or the host. The Yulong zero client provides a plug-and-play experience to users. The software interface is user-friendly and intuitive for any untrained IT staff to manage at ease.

Smooth Desktop Experience

Powered by vCloudPoint’s innovative Dynamic Desktop Protocol (DDP), Yulong zero clients deliver a seamless desktop experience to end-users. Whether you are launching applications, scrolling through webpages, editing documents, or playing high definition videos, in the lightweight Window 7 or the fancy Window 10, in a low display resolution of 1366*768 or a high resolution of 1920*1080, you will be having an indistinguishable experience from running on a PC desktop.

Excellent Image Quality

With other technologies, image quality must be diminished so that optimal bandwidth and performance can be maintained. With Yulong zero clients, users do not have to sacrifice image quality for high performance and low network bandwidth usage. IT administrators can choose their level of compression, lossy or lossless, based on their network constraints and the needs of end-users.

Real-Time Audio

Yulong zero clients are capable of supporting real-time audio devices like headsets and microphones with Yulong Virtual Audio Drivers running inside virtual desktops. The Yulong Virtual Audio Drivers are available through the installation of vMatrix Server Manager or Virspire Desktop Agent. These Virtual Audio drivers enable reliable audio playing and recording in any Windows systems and CD-quality sound at the zero clients.

Broad USB device support

Yulong zero clients support a wide range of USB devices including memory devices, USB hubs, single, multi-functional & dot matrix printers,card reader, office& POS scanners, single touch screens, U keys, and USB converters. USB peripherals never require specialized client drivers to work– just a native Windows driver is required. These USB devices are compatible and reliable with all Windows systems that whenever and however you attach them to the zero clients, they are fully functional as working on the host side.

FAQs

Zero clients offer nothing locally but just enable users to connect to a remote desktop. In other words, the residing hardware of a zero client does not act on jobs of processing locally, but only to initialize a conversation with the network, begin network protocol processes, and display desktop output. Therefore, the configuration of a zero client itself does not contribute to the remote desktop performance. There are a few aspects help with good performance of the remote desktop: well-configured host, low latency & high-bandwidth network, and high efficient remote display protocol. Of the above 3 aspects, only the display protocol is determined by the zero clients. Zero client users can edit documents, chat on IM, write emails, browse websites, enjoy songs& movies, handle graphic designs and use USB devices as they do on a regular PC.

USB devices that are tested to work on the Yulong zero clients:

Storage Devices, USB Hubs, Single, Multi-functional & Dot Matrix Printers,Smart Card Reader, Office & POS Scanners, Single Touch Screens, U keys, Parallel to USB Converters, etc; An external power supply may be required for devices working on large voltage.

Other USB devices that are not listed but function, in the same way, are supposed to be supported as well.

To use USB devices with Yulong zero clients, you simply installed the native device driver on the host system as you normally do when using PCs. NO extra drivers are required for the zero clients. Yulong USB redirection technology allows USB devices to work on the zero clients as well as on the host.

Printing devices and storage connected to a shared host can be accessed by all client users. Printing devices connected to the zero client can be accessed by all other users.
