Devon IT and Lenovo Feature New Thin Clients and Software at Citrix Synergy 2014

Devon IT, Inc., a leading provider of thin client and virtual desktop software solutions, today announced that Lenovo (in partnership with Devon IT) is showcasing virtual desktop and mobile solutions that enable users to access their desktop and corporate applications from numerous locations in booth #430 at Citrix Synergy. The event will be held at the Anaheim Convention Center in Los Angeles, CA, from May 6 - 8, 2014.

Citrix Synergy brings together thought leaders in desktop and server virtualization, server-based computing, cloud computing, and virtual desktop computing. The Lenovo booth will feature mobile and virtual desktop (in partnership with Devon IT) enterprise solutions to support virtual work styles, business continuity and mobility. Devon IT will demonstrate the recently available high-powered Lenovo ThinkCentre M73 thin client running LeTOS and WES7 and the Lenovo ThinkCentre M32 thin client. The companies will also feature its newest innovative Ceptor HDMI thin client that is available with a Lenovo VLH part no.

“There’s no question that the virtual desktop market is growing, a trend that is fueled by collaboration between IT thought leaders like Citrix and Devon IT,” says Joe Makoid, President, Devon IT. “New, more powerful thin client technologies such as the Lenovo M73 thin client coupled with advanced software like Citrix HDX significantly expand the opportunities for IT administrators and organizations that need to do more with less. We are excited to share our ideas with other industry leaders at Synergy.”

Containers, microservices and DevOps are all the rage lately. You can read about how great they are and how they’ll change your life and the industry everywhere. So naturally when we started a new company and were deciding how to architect our app, we went with microservices, containers and DevOps. About now you’re expecting a story of how everything went so smoothly, we’re now pushing out code ten times a day, but the reality is quite different.
The hierarchical architecture that distributes "compute" within the network specially at the edge can enable new services by harnessing emerging technologies. But Edge-Compute comes at increased cost that needs to be managed and potentially augmented by creative architecture solutions as there will always a catching-up with the capacity demands. Processing power in smartphones has enhanced YoY and there is increasingly spare compute capacity that can be potentially pooled. Uber has successfully been able to harness the excess capacity of privately owned vehicles and turned into a meaningful business. This concept can be step-functioned to harnessing the spare compute capacity of smartphones that can be orchestrated by MEC to provide cloud service at the edge.
Using new techniques of information modeling, indexing, and processing, new cloud-based systems can support cloud-based workloads previously not possible for high-throughput insurance, banking, and case-based applications. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, John Newton, CTO, Founder and Chairman of Alfresco, described how to scale cloud-based content management repositories to store, manage, and retrieve billions of documents and related information with fast and linear scalability. He addressed the challenges of scaling document repositories to this level; architectural approaches for coordinating data; search and storage technologies, Solr, and Amazon storage and database technologies; the breadth of use cases that modern content systems need to support; how to support user applications that require subsecond response times.
When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it’s important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. “Fly two mistakes high” is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, will discuss how this same philosophy can be applied to highly scaled applications, and can dramatically increase your resilience to failure.
While some developers care passionately about how data centers and clouds are architected, for most, it is only the end result that matters. To the majority of companies, technology exists to solve a business problem, and only delivers value when it is solving that problem. 2017 brings the mainstream adoption of containers for production workloads. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Ben McCormack, VP of Operations at Evernote, discussed how data centers of the future will be managed, how the public cloud best suits your organization, and what the future holds for operations and infrastructure engineers in a post-container world. Is a serverless world inevitable?
