Maximizing your infrastructure through virtualization

Hewlett-Packard will announce a range of thin client devices under the brand name Entria later today, hedging its bets with a CE-based model and two Linux-based variants. But the Linux ones sound more interesting. The Entria G uses a 166MHz Cyrix MediaGX chip and is intended to use CE for remote application execution in Windows environments. The Linux-based Entria L and Entria X have more beef, using a 266MHz Pentium, and are more flexible. They run Linux on an embedded core OS, and the Entria X also includes HP's ChaiVM embedded Java virtual machine. Presumably therefore HP intends to position these two as the thin client platforms of choice for use in heterogeneous and non-Windows networks (i.e., most of them). ®
