Samsung Unveils Next-Generation Thin- and Zero-Client Cloud Displays for Seamless Access to the Business Cloud via Desktop Virtualization

Samsung Electronics America Inc., a subsidiary of Samsung Electronics Corporation, today announced its next-generation TC191W and TC241W thin-client and NC191 and NC241 zero-client cloud displays. The latest lines combine VDI and desktop virtualization for simple and highly secure access to a business cloud, which customers are increasingly depending on for essential information.

"We are seeing that a growing amount of IT capability will be based in a variety of business clouds during the next few years," according to Robert Mahowald, research VP at IDC. "Our recent NA CloudTrack survey (summer 2012, n=801) data show that by mid-2014, businesses expect to devote nearly 34% of their IT resources to hosted cloud solutions, public and private, and 21% to building private clouds in their datacenters, while spending less (33%, a decrease of 12% in spending over 2012-2014) on traditional datacenter-based IT deployments. Clearly customers are moving their key assets to cloud architectures of various types, and business users will depend on secure and reliable access."

Olympic Medical Center is one such organization that has built a virtual environment with Samsung’s NC-Series zero-client cloud displays to support fast and secure electronics health record adoption by its physicians. “Transitioning to Samsung’s cloud displays enabled us to centralize essential applications while maintaining patient data security,” said Sean Johnson, information systems manager at Olympic Medical Center. “The new workflow is significantly faster for our physicians and has cut dictation and chart completion time while providing a slim clutter-free solution.”

Seamless Virtualization

Both the TC-and NC-Series cloud displays provide integrated connectivity to business clouds via desktop virtualization technology, therefore eliminating the need for a bulky PC with excessive IT administration costs. As sensitive information is centralized and secured in a business cloud, the user environment is easier to deploy, maintain and manage while minimizing exposure to security risks.

The NC-Series allows organizations to easily migrate to a VDI cloud, increasing productivity, strengthening protection of sensitive data and streamlining IT costs. Certified for optimal use with VMware View, the NC Series displays have built-in access technology using the latest Teradici Tera2 chipset technology. The NC-Series also features SoC (System-on-Chip) technology, which reduces the desktop attack surface while nearly completely eliminating the need for client-side administration.

The TC-Series cloud displays are flexible thin clients with a wide range of desktop virtualization access components built-in, allowing users to connect to a variety of hosted cloud environments. From a familiar Windows interface, users can toggle between published Citrix applications, access a virtual desktop from their VMware server, or login to a corporate HR site from the local IE web browser. With Windows Embedded Standard 7 (WES 7) pre-installed, users get the simplicity of a thin client with PC-like utility.

Functionality is expanded by allowing administrators to add local software requisites to drive peripherals like web cams or printers, and to install local utilities needed for unified communications. With all of this flexibility users can still retain the simplicity and security of a traditional thin client. Since the primary purpose of TC-Series display is cloud access, the software image has been streamlined to reduce client-side administration. And the advanced write filtering software can secure endpoints in a read-only state with just a click of a button.

Streamlined Workspace

Available in 19- and 23.6-inch models, both the TC- and NC-Series cloud displays are designed to eliminate bulky PCs from the workspace and seamlessly blend into an office interior. By integrating hardware and cabling into the display, this sleek design minimizes clutter. This clean design is convenient for attaching a second display to the digital video output to improve productivity or plug a notebook into the video-input for temporary use as a monitor.

A wide, 170-degree viewing angle and Samsung’s Magic Angle technology allows for easy viewing of the screen - no matter the vantage point - and the 150mm height-adjustable stand enables users to comfortably place the display at a height and tilt suited to their computing needs. A 90-degree pivot function and wall-mounting capability make them ideal for specialized workplace environments like healthcare, education, government and financial institutions.

For a superior visual experience, both cloud displays have advanced encoding and decoding for processing multimedia content and high quality images practical for graphic design (CAD) and 3D rendering.

Tactile selection and function buttons are also incorporated into the design, making it easy to adjust settings and power the display on and off. A single button press can power off the display and server connection, making energy conservation a simple and easy process.

Price and Availability

The new TC-Series thin-client (TC191W and TC241W) and NC-Series zero-client cloud access displays (NC191 and NC241) can be ordered today starting around $477 (actual prices may vary). All Samsung displays can be found at select Samsung resellers and channel partners. Local availability can be determined by calling 1-866-SAM-4BIZ or by visiting www.samsung.com/business.

We certainly live in interesting technological times. And no more interesting than the current competing IoT standards for connectivity. Various standards bodies, approaches, and ecosystems are vying for mindshare and positioning for a competitive edge. It is clear that when the dust settles, we will have new protocols, evolved protocols, that will change the way we interact with devices and infrastructure. We will also have evolved web protocols, like HTTP/2, that will be changing the very core of our infrastructures. At the same time, we have old approaches made new again like micro-services...
How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it's a mix of architectural styles ...
Connected devices and the Internet of Things are getting significant momentum in 2014. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Hunter, Chief Scientist & Technology Evangelist at Greenwave Systems, examined three key elements that together will drive mass adoption of the IoT before the end of 2015. The first element is the recent advent of robust open source protocols (like AllJoyn and WebRTC) that facilitate M2M communication. The second is broad availability of flexible, cost-effective storage designed to handle the massive surge in back-end data in a world where timely analytics is e...
Collecting data in the field and configuring multitudes of unique devices is a time-consuming, labor-intensive process that can stretch IT resources. Horan & Bird [H&B], Australia’s fifth-largest Solar Panel Installer, wanted to automate sensor data collection and monitoring from its solar panels and integrate the data with its business and marketing systems. After data was collected and structured, two major areas needed to be addressed: improving developer workflows and extending access to a business application to multiple users (multi-tenancy). Docker, a container technology, was used to ...
The true value of the Internet of Things (IoT) lies not just in the data, but through the services that protect the data, perform the analysis and present findings in a usable way. With many IoT elements rooted in traditional IT components, Big Data and IoT isn’t just a play for enterprise. In fact, the IoT presents SMBs with the prospect of launching entirely new activities and exploring innovative areas. CompTIA research identifies several areas where IoT is expected to have the greatest impact.
2015 predictions circa 1970: houses anticipate our needs and adapt, city infrastructure is citizen and situation aware, office buildings identify and preprocess you.

Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.
We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) i...
