This month Third Tier welcomes guest presenter Dean Paron, product manager of Microsoft MultiPoint Server to our Third Thursday webinar. I know what you’re thinking…what’s MultiPoint Server?
MultiPoint Server is a new implementation of Terminal Services. It allows you to reuse older PC’s, use terminals instead of PC’s or even eliminate PC’s by connecting via USB multiple people directly to the MultiPoint Server. Everyone gets a Windows 7 desktop display and the admin can view everyone desktops from a remote location. You need to see it in action and hear Dean’s explanation of how it works. Although built with schools in mind, although built with schools in mind, I totally believe that it has a place in small business as well. It’s very cool and I think everyone of us can find a use for in small/medium businesses.
So plan to attend our April Third Thursday webinar, at the usual time Noon Eastern on April 21st.
Third Tier has invited you to attend an online meeting using Live Meeting.
Join the meeting.

Top 5 Things You Can Do with Windows MultiPoint Server 2011 in the IT Department
- Maximize your technology investments and reduce upfront costs. Windows® MultiPoint™ Server 2011 gives you a way to tap into the unused processing power of a single PC to give multiple users their own computing experience. Because you can reuse older hardware, you can reduce hardware acquisition costs by 35 to 50 percent—all while giving your users the most current Windows® 7 experience. You can even use large screen monitors and split screens between users.
- Reduce energy costs and consumption. Because you’re only powering one computer for multiple users, Windows MultiPoint Server 2011 can help you reduce your energy consumption. Many schools have saved up to 90 percent in their power costs. In addition, you won’t need as many drops.
- Provide broad client support. With Windows MultiPoint Server 2011, you can connect in multiple ways and support different clients. For instance, you can connect workstations directly to the host computer by using USB or video card, or connect PCs, thin clients, network monitors, and more through your local area network (LAN). You can even use a hybrid of both. And if you choose the LAN option, Remote FX supercharges high-definition video. Finally, you can connect keyboards and mice at each station either using USB or a wireless connection.
- Get simple set up and management. With Windows MultiPoint Server 2011, you’ll have fewer hosts to maintain, and those that remain can be managed from the single MultiPoint Manager console. In addition, administrators can log on to all stations at one time with auto-logon, use existing Windows Group Policies, and provide on-site or remote assistance when teachers or staff need additional help. Windows MultiPoint Server 2011 also lets you run some educational and testing applications and programs that may require unique IP addresses.
- Use Microsoft Windows® Update for updates and patches. You can get automatic access to updates and patches through Windows® Update so you can be confident that your computing systems are up to date. In addition, support is available from Microsoft or our authorized partners—even remote assistance if teachers need help.
