FastX Now Displays Remote Linux Desktops from a USB Drive
Power Linux users can now connect to their Linux desktop at work from any PC using a standard USB memory stick that has FastX, StarNet's X Windows Emulator client installed.
Sunnyvale, CA (PRWEB) July 17, 2014
StarNet Communications Corp (http://www.starnet.com/), a leading publisher of remote Linux desktop solutions, today announced its FastX X Windows emulator client can now be installed on standard USB Flash drives. Engineers and other power users will be able to access their remote Linux desktop from any Windows PC.
Users with multiple machines no longer need to install the FastX client on each machine or pay for more than one copy of the software. After installing FastX onto the USB drive, the product will run from the memory stick. With a few clicks, users are logged into their remote Linux server and either start a new remote Linux desktop session or resume one they launched earlier from another PC.
“Now you can go to any PC on your corporate campus, home, Internet café, hotel business center, etc. plug the USB stick into a Windows PC, start FastX and connect to your remote Linux desktop,” said Steven Schoch, StarNet co-founder and CEO. “Being able to take your pre-configured sessions to any PC without having to install anything or deal with licensing and purchasing issues is extremely convenient and cost-effective. ”
Using a USB drive also adds security, especially on PCs not owned by the users. With FastX running off the USB drive, nothing gets installed on the host PC and nothing remains when the USB device is removed.
The release of the USB version of FastX follows versions of the high-speed X Windows emulator that were released for Windows, Macintosh and Linux workstations. “FastX is ideal for power users who move between office, home, lab, customer and other computers, but need access to a Linux desktop that is running on a remote Linux host. Now your remote Linux desktop is always a few mouse clicks away, no matter what Windows PC you are using,” Schoch said.
Pricing & Availability
A single copy of the USB version of FastX costs $195. FastX for USB can be downloaded for evaluation from http://www.starnet.com/fastx/download.php.
