Next-Generation Flexibility

The Dell FX100 Remote Access Device, part of Dell's Flexible Computing offering, consists of a standard PCIe card housed in the host rack workstation and a portal device that is directly connected to the remote user's peripherals. Unlike software-based remote access solutions, the FX100 uses dedicated hardware to compress, encrypt and manage the communication between the host system and the portal.

With the Dell FX100 Remote Access Device, a remote user's front of screen experience will be similar to actually sitting at the workstation.

For virtual remote desktop environments the FX100 (with Teradici® firmware release 3.X) is a certified PCoIP® Hardware Zero Client with VMware View™ 4 enabling simple plug-and-play access to VMware View™ 4 Virtual Desktops.
