Thin-client devices

VXL is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of thin-client hardware. A thin client is a small, lightweight computer which is designed to be a remote device for software and data that’s stored centrally (unlike PCs, which store software and often data on each machine). This not only reduces the cost of the machine, it increases security and delivers outstanding total cost of ownership.

VXL has been manufacturing thin-client hardware since 1976. Devices are manufactured at VXL’s state-of-the-art facilities in Bangalore, India. These include a 20,000 square-foot pressurised dust-free zone, component-forming machines, wave soldering machines and automatic test equipment. Our production capacity is around 400,000 units per year. All of our thin-client hardware is manufactured under tightly controlled conditions and passes through a range of quality tests – including quality assurance and reliability, to ensure a minimum of 120,000 hours of MTBF.

VXL has created the industry’s most advanced – and widest range – of desktop thin clients, cloud clients and zero clients – intelligently built for the needs of today’s workforce. This includes task workers, who use a smaller number of less demanding applications; knowledge workers, who create more complex documents – and power users who develop applications or use multimedia applications.

VXL’s thin clients are available without an operating system – or can be supplied with Linux or Windows Embedded/Windows IoT installed.

The European headquarters is in Manchester, in the United Kingdom.
