How is notouch desktop installed and deployed

Full hard drive installation

NoTouch OS installs onto your device bare metal. You don’t need Windows installed on your device to run NoTouch OS, and installing NoTouch will replace any existing OS on your hardware.

Live Boot and BYOD Support

Empower your workers to connect to your network at home or on the go. Simply boot NoTouch from a USB stick and get full access to your VDI session without any effect on your native OS.

PXE Boot

Install NoTouch OS to thousands of devices instantly using PXE boot. Enable enterprise grade rollouts and save time by using PXE boot install directly from your server.

NoTouch OS on Raspberry Pi

NoTouch OS is the most advanced Thin Client OS for the Raspberry Pi. Our minimal footprint OS installs onto your Raspberry Pi 3, or the newest Raspberry Pi 3B+, and turns it into a high performing endpoint. Stratodesk is the first company to make the Raspberry Pi a viable enterprise option, and is the only OS for the Citrix Ready workspace hub.

Easily Customizable

Configure and customize endpoints however you like. Take users directly into a VDI session, or to a powerful local desktop with advanced branding capabilities for your organization.

Nothing is stored on the client device. In case of a device being compromised your server is kept safe. Our Linux based system also makes NoTouch immune to hackers, viruses, and other common security risks.

Consistent and Timely Updates

XcellHost releases updates and improvements on a rolling basis. Unlike other solutions that only release a few updates a year, XcellHost makes software updates immediately available when major partners like Citrix and VMware update their protocols.

NoTouch Desktop is a hardware-agnostic endpoint repurposing and administration solution that consists of:

NoTouch OS, the minimal-footprint operating system that runs on both x86 and ARM-based devices. It can run from USB sticks, network boot, CD-ROMs, and your local hardware.
NoTouch Center, the central, automated administration solution for configuring, monitoring, updating, and remotely controlling your endpoints. Run NoTouch Center on-premises or with our fully managed, Cloud-based service, NoTouch Cloud

NoTouch does not need Windows in order to run. It is a complete appliance based on Linux and is intuitive enough to use that system administrators don’t need to have any OS or Linux skills to use it. Every aspect of the system can be centrally managed.

run NoTouch side-by-side/dual-boot with Windows (we call it Live Boot)
install NoTouch on a system’s hard drive or flash drive, effectively wiping Windows out
run NoTouch inside a virtual machine in a Windows OS in order to provide a clear boundary between user-controlled Windows (BYOD – bring your own device situation) and company-controlled NoTouch.

A few of the Main Benefits of Thin Client Computing are:
- Increased Security
- Centralized Management
- Lower Total Cost of Ownership
- Reduced Energy Consumption

As a general explanation, desktop virtualization involves separating the physical location of a client device from its logical interface, allowing end users to access their data and applications from anywhere.
A user interacts with a virtual desktop in the same way they would use a physical desktop. Desktop virtualization lets users remotely log in to access your desktop from any location.

NoTouch OS runs on 99% of all x86 desktop hardware including Intel (desktop and Atom), AMD and VIA CPUs. NoTouch OS also works on ARM based devices, including the Raspberry Pi, and prevents hardware lockdown and keeps you free to incorporate the widest variety of devices.

• Convert any PCs, laptops, Thin Client, or Raspberry Pi device into a Thin Endpoint – NoTouch OS is 100% hardware agnostic.
• Supports healthcare critical features including Imprivata SSO, FUS, and Fingerprint Authentication.
• Repurpose new and existing endpoints into NoTouch OS –no capital purchase of hardware required.
• Consistent and tailored updates to keep your VDI running smoothly.
• Rollout NoTouch OS onto thousands of devices instantly.
Complete access to cloud-hosted and server-based infrastructure –VMware View, Citrix XenApp/XenDesktop, and more.
• Protect your VDI with enterprise-grade security immune to hackers, viruses, and other security risks.
• Manage your VDI ecosystem of thousands of devices –laptops, PCs, Thin Clients, and Raspberry Pis.
• Run NoTouch Center on-premises or from the Cloud via our fully managed, Cloud-based service.

A thin client is a small, centrally managed device with no hard drive. Thin clients are used as a PC replacement technology to help customers immediately access any virtual desktop or virtualised application. Thin clients provide businesses a cost-effective way to create a virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI).

Thin clients on average consume only 8-10 watts, compared to 150 watts for PCs.
