The Symbiont Boot Appliance (SBA)

Deploy a 100% server-centric network simply and easily with The Symbiont Boot Appliance.

Already own the SBA 140?

The Symbiont Boot Appliance (SBA) is a rackmount appliance that boots up stateless devices with no internal operating system or embedded software and connects them to virtually any application or terminal server. The result is a desktop environment that requires minimal maintenance, is very easy to deploy, requires no third party desktop management software, and is extremely secure. You can manage your network remotely through a web browser using a secure (SSL) connection.

Supported terminal services protocols include: Windows Terminal Services (RDP), Citrix (ICA), VMWare View, LDM (X over SSH), VNC (and VNC over SSH), Unix (XDMCP), IBM 3270, IBM 5250, Telnet, NoMachine (NX) and virtually any midrange, mainframe, or other legacy system.  The Ericom PowerTerm WebConnect--VDI, TS, Legacy client has been added to The Symbiont Boot Appliance as well. Thin clients can also boot to a local kiosk-style Java-enabled web browser.

Administrators can create multiple virtual subnets, improving the network architect's ability to separate individual users and departments from each other, and can control access to local storage devices and locally attached printers. As a security-hardened device, the SBA is the perfect choice for classified environments.
