Low total cost of ownership
Additional computing access is as simple as adding more I/O devices. The total cost of ownership is then drastically reduced.
Simple click and play
mt178W connects to the host server with a Remote Desktop connection. Just click the shortcut for a Remote Desktop session, you can immediately start a session and enjoy the computing resources.
Rich remote user experience
With Citrix HDX/ICA, Microsoft RDP and VMware View, mt178W can provide a rich, efficient, and "local" computing experience for remote users.
Easy management and maintenance
Since all computing tasks are mainly performed on a server, all hardware and software issues are significantly reduced on the client side. All user management, software installations, system management, and upgrades are done on a single server.
