AppliedMicro to Integrate Microsoft RemoteFX With Thin Client Application Processors
Investments in RemoteFX Designed for Compatibility of Thin Client Systems With Rich Media Enhancements in Windows Server 2008 R2
SUNNYVALE, Calif., Mar 19, 2010 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- AppliedMicro (Nasdaq:AMCC), a global leader in energy conscious computing and communications solutions and a provider of thin clients, today announced plans to support Microsoft(R) RemoteFX, a feature being developed for Windows Server(R) 2008 R2 Service Pack 1, in future versions of the AppliedMicro application processors.

AppliedMicro advanced application processors for multimedia thin clients with desktop, applications and storage virtualized in the cloud, is designed to be fully compliant to Microsoft RemoteFX. The company has been working closely with Microsoft to enhance cloud-based remote services enablement and user experience using hardware algorithm-based implementations. The compliance ensures that application processors on the client side will be fully interoperable with the Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1 and interoperable with the ecosystem of Microsoft RemoteFX(TM) alliances.

"Hardware-based desktop virtualization has been the missing link in increased deployments of multimedia capable thin clients," said Raghu Kondapalli Senior Director of Technology at AppliedMicro. "Traditionally, the high bandwidth and processing requirements of thin clients have kept costs higher relative to personal computers. With RemoteFX technology adoption, cloud-based service deployment becomes economically viable leading to increased adoption of thin clients in consumer and small and medium business environments."

"As organizations plan to deploy a centralized computing architecture with virtualized or session-based desktops, IT professionals want to deliver a premium user experience to connected workers," said Mike Schutz, Director of Product Management at Microsoft Corporation. "The Microsoft RemoteFX feature in Windows Server will allow remote workers to access any type of application or screen content, including rich media and 3D applications, and companies such as AppliedMicro are offering a path to the future by investing in solutions today that will increase the flexibility and performance of a centralized desktop environment."
