vCloudPoint zero clients combined with vMatrix Server Manager software, offer an innovative way for desktop computing - sharing computing, which offers users the same experiences of a typical PC at a fraction of the cost, while providing a variety of additional benefits.
The 2 essential components
Zero Client (vCloudPoint Hardware Device)
vCloudPoint Zero is often referred to as the Ultra Thin Client because it contains no moving parts, but centralizes all processing and storage for what happens on the host. As a result, it requires no local drivers to install, no patch management and no local operating system license fees or updates. The device consumes very little power and is tamper-proof and completely unable to store data locally, providing a more secure endpoint.
vMatrix Server Manager (vCloudPoint Management Software)
The vMatrix Server Manager software, running on the host PC, enhances the overall functionality and usability of the sharing system by providing connection brokering, graphics acceleration, audio and USB redirection, and centralized management. IT administrators can centrally configure, monitor, and manage devices and end users easily on the server side via the front-end console.
The 5 major advantages of vCloudPoint
Lower the costs Reduction of initial acquisition costs,
Initial acquisition costs are saved when replacing PCs with vCloudPoint zero clients that cost less than half the price of initial tier PCs.
Better budget leverage,
Sharing resources on a centralized computer improves the leverage of hardware upgrade budgets and software licenses. Minimization of terminal maintenance, With no failure - printed moving parts, repairs on zero clients are rare and your maintenance costs are minimized on the shared computer.
More energy savings,
Compare to 110 watts or more by a typical PC, vCloudPoint clients consume only 5 watts and produce significantly less heat, providing at least 80% savings in PC power and cooling consumption.
Longer desktop refresh cycles,
Lack of moving parts improves life in harsh environments like restaurants, public spaces, warehousing and manufacturing. Obsolescence-free functionality also proves longer desktop refresh cycles, saving refresh budgets and reducing refresh time from weeks to hours.
Deploying hundreds of desktops can take hours compared to days or weeks with PCs. Install the vMatrix Server software on the shared PC, add multiple users, plug in the Ethernet cable, mouse, keyboard, and monitor, and the users are ready to go. A new workstation can be set up in seconds.
There is nothing that IT configures, manages or updates to the end point. All installations, patches and updates are performed on a single host. An IT staff can manage 5 times as many devices and users as PCs.
Remote technical support,
IT and support staff can provide support or resolve issues directly from their offices by monitoring and controlling user workstations, eliminating the costs and delays of traveling to remote user sites.
A new workstation can be set up in seconds and an entire group in hours.
Improved work efficiency
Reduced unplanned downtime,
With no faulty parts and office-related issues, unplanned downtime is dramatically reduced. Even when the bend is faulty, the vCloudPoint zero client can be placed, which helps the user to work in seconds.
Fast roaming from any client,
No time is wasted moving a heavy laptop or rebooting the system. With a simple logoff, then log in from any vCloudPoint zero client, the user returns to their desktop with all open applications and files still in place.
Enabling file sharing,
With some disks configured visible to everyone, users can easily share and store files on these public disks without the need to copy or transfer between desktop computers.
Elimination of viral infection,
With no resident operating system or storage capable of running software, the vCloudPoint Zero Client provides a completely secure endpoint that is safe from viruses and other malware
Security Policies and Monitoring,
vMatrix allows IT staff to enforce security policies, monitor and remotely disable any end-user from connecting or locking down locally connected USB devices, preventing users from copying confidential data to removable storage

Protecting the environment
Release of the office footprint ,
The vCloudPoint Zero Client is only one cell phone size and can be mounted on the back of the monitor to save desktop space
noiseless task execution,
With no storage and no fans, the vCloudPoint Zero Client produces no noise at runtime.
Less heat and e-waste
Consume much less power, which means the VCloudPoint zero client produces much less heat and electronic waste compared to standard PCs.
Energy consumption savings
Maintenance cost savings
Savings in upgrading
