Product Details

NoTouch Desktop™ is a Citrix ready, hardware agnostic (X86 and ARM/Raspberry Pi) operating system and management suite for Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops, formerly XenApp and XenDesktop; VDI endpoints. NoTouch, with Citrix Receiver pre-installed, unifies and standardizes Citrix VDI endpoints while delivering unchallenged deployment and management options. In addition, Stratodesk NoTouch is the operating system of the Citrix Ready workspace hub (previously known as Citrix HDX Ready Pi).

The product consists of:

NoTouch OS: Supercharges Your VDI Endpoints

NoTouch OS is a Linux-based, minimal-footprint operating system that runs on PCs, thin clients and laptops and even Raspberry PIs. With NoTouch OS you can eliminate Windows entirely-essentially turning your endpoint device into a zero-like client. NoTouch OS supports commercial VDI tools from Citrix and others.

NoTouch Center: Productivity Boost for Sys Admins

NoTouch Center, a browser-based tool, helps IT administrators to configure and manage repurposed PCs, thin clients and laptops–all from a single screen. NoTouch Center provides full control over endpoints, helping compliance and protecting patient privacy. Supporting inheritance of settings, NoTouch Center makes it easy to set up and configure groups and push out updates to all NoTouch Clients and supported vendor VDI software. Other NoTouch Center features include multiple user roles, monitoring, asset management and asset tracking, helpdesk and more. NoTouch Center is the enterprise-grade tool that reduces system administrator time and keeps your entire VDI environment operating at peak performance.

Stratodesk Virtual Appliance: Client Hosting and VDI Management

The Stratodesk Virtual Appliance simplifies your VDI architecture and streamlines VDI administration. This 64-bit Linux-based appliance comes preconfigured to run in environments such as Citrix Hypervisor, formerly XenServer and Microsoft Hyper-V. Stratodesk Virtual Appliance includes NoTouch Center and a pre-boot execution environment (PXE) used to bring up NoTouch OS on diskless machines. An easy-to-use web-based administration interface makes it easy to perform tasks such as updating endpoints and backing up the virtual appliance. Stratodesk Virtual Appliance can also store files locally for update distribute and network boot –no external database needed.
