Thin Clients, VDI and Linux integration from the front lines.... Raw and sometimes unedited notes based on my experiences with VMware, Thin Clients, Linux etc.

So my friend Charles has come up with an intriguing concept, and on the surface of it it looks very compelling, the main thought I have is making sure it can do what it says - that to me is the real Litmus Test of any IT appliance or Technology these days - can I deploy it and start getting value from day 1? I'll post more on this later as I get to grips with it...

Think beyond VDI broker etc. why not think applications as content and an infrastructure broker managing this systems

Think beyond VDI broker etc. why not think applications as content and an infrastructure broker managing this systems.

Well everyone seems to be talking about brokers and solutions, so been working on one of my own, working on an idea called NEMO.
Basically been doing a bit of the thinktank and thought take the VDI broker, SSL Broker etc and think about, an Infrastructure broker.  

"NEMO represents a new way of managing the infrastructure of large enterprises and small businesses." NEMO is a network appliance, which provides end-users with whatever desktop operating system, application, network connection, e-mail services or even printer connection they need from wherever they are. NEMO is far more than just a device for the office it allows users to access their office network and applications from whatever location and by any device they choose. NEMO is a rack-mountable device, running on Microsoft Windows Server 2003.

NEMO offers a simple solution to most office challenges. NEMO finds the most effective path to help a customer along his way from old solutions to the latest emerging technologies. It allows users easy access to applications and services where and when they require them.

NEMO was tested using a virtual desktop infrastructure. This heterogeneous computing solution migrated and remapped the end-user data to a virtual infrastructure running on Windows Vista and 2007 Office in just 3 minutes.

Nemo is currently built using Microsoft technology and Windows Embedded products for the following reasons:

  • Development tools for Windows Platform allow us to develop a richer solution with a faster time to market
  • Long-standing and excellent experience of team working with Microsoft
  • End-to-end support model and back-up of our business by Microsoft
  • No client access license required
  • Customisable operating systems
  • Longevity of support and productivity

Would it be good if a company such as Citrix, Microsoft, Juniper etc come up with a device like this ?
