    HP Zero Clients - Anybody using

    I know there is a thread here Where I know @plexer is using the devices.

    Is anybody else using them? Preferably down south and wouldn't mind us visiting to have a look at them in action?

    Or does anybody know of any suppliers who are currently reselling the solution that would be able to demo them to us?

    Thanks

    I now have the T200 zero clients deployed in production using an HP Z210 as the host machine.

    The T200's can be connected either via usb cable or via ethernet but they both do the same thing as when you connect them via ethernet they are actually doing usb encapsulated in ethernet packets.

    What sort of performance do you get from them? How many can you get to a host? What Spec is the host?

    Also do you know if you have to use an HP Desktop to run them or if you could build a standard desktop and install multipoint and they would work?

    Thanks

    You could use any desktop for the host then just d/l the drivers from the HP support pages for their 6200 multipoint desktop.

    Performance wise I am going to be doing a shoot out tomorrow with an Axel RDP multipoint client as well but for general use I don't see an issue I wouldn't do cad with them.

    The Z210 I am using with them is the i7-2600 4GB RAM 500GB disk.

    Thats cool - would be good to hear the performance of it - Our pe dept mainly use the machines for word processing occasional bit of movie maker. Ideally I'll build a couple of 1U servers to host the zero clients from as the rooms I want to role our are directly next door to the server room.

    How many clients do you think concurrently from the I7 machine? If custom building I would probably go with an SSD machine to aide the solution.

    I have 9 + host so 10 terminals effectively available in the library and MPS premium can only have a max of 20 connected.

    With the 4GB ram I wouldn't want to add too many more at the moment, one slightly annoying issues so far is that looping flash adverts do seem to cause some slowdown.

    For general office use you'll be fine.

    Movie maker won't run though even 2.6 due to it being an rdp solution effectively.

    Using ethernet clients means that your hosts could be virtualised.

    Ah ok - I'll being giving it a go - I've been looking at the Dual chassis i.e you can put 2 desktops in 1 1u chassis. I'll be getting some pricing on the clients - do you know how much Multipoint is on EES roughly? Also how much are the zero clients around £70?

    I bought my multipoint cals under select for about £13.00

    I have ees pricing in an email and will dig it out tomorrow.

    Just be aware that no-one is holding stock at the moment so there is a bit of a delay for orders to be fulfilled.

    Excellent thanks - I presume it would just be just for x10 if i had 10 clients etc?

    Just ordered 2 T200's around £55 each which isn't bad. Going to have a play with 2 and then go further ahead with it if i like it.
