Zero Technologies introduces cheap zero client
Company is one of first Middle East companies to manufacture, export electronics
UAE-based Zero Technologies, launched today, has developed a new, inexpensive, internet-based, ‘zero client' computing system and will become one of the Middle East's first companies to manufacture and export consumer electronics that are wholly-owned by a regional company.
"As desktop virtualisation revolutionises the world's workplaces, UAE-based Zero Technologies is proud to represent the country's pioneering and entrepreneurial spirit in its leadership in this critical new area of technological advancement," said Dr Mohamed Almur, co-founder of UAE-based Zero Technologies.
Zero client technology means that users only require a traditional keyboard and mouse, display unit, and a small client device which enables them to access and store data on a central server located anywhere in the world.
This technology is designed to reduce costs for enterprises and individuals and endpoint management and security breaches are eliminated, and energy consumption is slashed by 95% when compared to a PC, according to Zero Technologies.
"The desktop PC, as we know it today, is now dead. It's a relic from an era when desktop virtualization technology simply did not exist," said UAE-based Sherif Hamed, co-founder and CEO, Zero Technologies.
