Fujitsu introduces new 'Zero Client' device Fujitsu's Zero Client device has no moving parts and requires only one cable for power and data combined.
By  Mark Sutton Published  November 19, 2009

Fujitsu has introduced a new client device, that it says is the first ever true ‘Zero Client' workplace.

The Fujitsu Zero Client device has no operating system, applications, data, processors, memory, fan or other moving parts, making it ideal for use in organizations with large numbers of end users.

The terminal, which has a single cable for power and data combined, is intended for connection to a Desktop Virtual Machine (DVM), either in the cloud or on an own-network hosted infrastructure. Companies can easily deploy services to a large number of users, with no configuration required at the desktop, cutting maintenance costs and allowing for easy upscaling of infrastructure.

The Zero Client terminal will initially be targeted at organizations such as call centres, government agencies and financial institutions.

Rajat Kakar, Vice President Clients Group at Fujitsu Technology Solutions says: "For many organizations, the traditional client model is no longer viable or cost-efficient. Particularly for government organizations, banks and standard office infrastructures, the Fujitsu Zero Client will provide dramatic cost-savings in roll-out, deployment, management and administration. The Fujitsu Zero Client makes virtualized clients an affordable reality."

The Zero Client is due to go on sale early next year.

SUNDE VDI with Diana zero client gets around a number of thin client limitations. Most thin client solutions lack the ability to run multiple displays. They're also poor at multimedia applications, simply because their integrated processors lack the power to offer adequate performance to handle the additional I/O. SUNDE, on the other hand, relies on server-side processing to make those advanced features work -- giving administrators the flexibility to offer more processing power to those users who need the features.
