Pano Logic Announces Pano System 2.8 and Pano Dual Monitor

Pano Logic has announced Pano System 2.8 and Pano Dual Monitor, further enhancing the end user experience, increasing scalability and simplifying IT management. Pano System 2.8 improves the efficiency and convenience of managing deployments while doubling the number of desktops that can be controlled from a single management console. The Pano Dual Monitor is a USB adaptor that allows applications to operate as though two display devices were directly attached. Windows and applications automatically maximise to the physical dimensions of the display without additional software required. The new release will be the first version of Pano Logic offered by the most recent channel partner for the UK region, STL Technologies, which has delivered valued IT infrastructure solutions to public and commercial sectors for over 40 years.

Unlike thin-clients that bulk up with processors in the endpoint, and add management burden, the Pano System provides end users with a full and dynamic PC experience without compromising simplicity by adding an endpoint processor. The announcement emphasises Pano Logic's dedication to redefining the delivery and management of end user computing with technology that radically centralises virtual desktop management.

The Pano System is an all-in-one desktop virtualisation solution. The system includes Pano Device, a zero client endpoint, and Pano Manager, a unified management interface. The Pano System unlike any other desktop VDI solution radically centralises 100% computing power to the virtualised server.

There is no processor, no operating system, no memory, no drivers, no software and no moving parts in the Pano Device, resulting in absolutely zero endpoint management. The lifespan of a Pano zero client device is over 3 times that of a thin client or PC. The Pano Device retains no data and is secure against any data-loss. Each zero client Pano Device uses less than 3 watts of power, just 3 percent of what energy efficient PCs use, translating into significant energy savings. The Pano Device connects over an existing IP network to an instance of Microsoft Windows virtualised on a datacenter server.

Pano Manager is a very simple to use web-based management interface that enables administrators to manage the entire virtual desktop deployment. The Pano Manager interacts with a lightweight service (Pano Direct) residing within each desktop virtual machine that links peripherals attached to the Pano Device to the unmodified Windows drivers residing in the virtual machine. This design guarantees that all existing Windows drivers will work without modification.
