Hi all ! 

I installed Windows 10 Pro on Digital Ocean and make a US$ 30,00 Android TV Box as a ThinClients.

 

I Think this is a good solution for schools, hospitals, cibercafes...

 

You can host a Windows 10 PRO and enable RDP multi users access.... Paying only US$ 20,00, creating snapshots and dont need to buy computers anymore.

I test Digital Ocean with Grub4dos and works like a charm...

 

I really need a SVBus or Firadisk Windows 10 .VHD file ! Someone can do for me ?

 

I want to start a 4GB RAM Droplet in Digital Ocean with Windows 10 enterelly in RAM...

 

To install Windows 10 on Digital Ocean you need to inject virtIO Drivers on your .wim.

Darren i do not recommend PaperSpace,  lot of bug to start Windows Machine... bad support....

 

Digital Ocean never stops

 

Thanks for the tip of GlobalDyne Systems !

 

My next conbfiguration is using OpenDedup with "DigitalOcean Spaces" to store Windows .VHD ( many .VHD with Deduplication , imagine 100 .VHDs files with 100 GB each with deduplication on a single 6 US$/month Object Storage ) !

 

And you can use DropLets and boot from a ISCSI Target from Datish OpenDedup virtual Appliance installed on Digital Ocean too !

Hi, I have used both the ones I recommended and never had any issues to be honest, but certainly out of the two I would choose Globaldyne as support very helpful

Yes, i used paperspace too for a month, but many problems....  Its a Windows 2016 Server with Desktop Experience...

 

Well, on Digital Ocean you can have 4Gb RAM by only $ 20,00 and you can choose what Windows version to install. ( with my how to, coming soon ).

 

See, PaperSpace is not a bad option.. But with my experience i really dont like the service.

If you like Windows Cloud Desktops,  you can use your Android TV Box with Shadow.tech too !

 

Shadow PC is a Full Windows 3D Desktop running at 60 fps ! And yes you can run it on your cheap Android TV Box.

 

"The ultimate gaming service.

Shadow is a supercharged gaming PC accessible on any device. Uncompromising performance, anywhere you want. Now $34.95/month. Cancel anytime."

 

u4dn3F4g.jpg

 

Check it out ! A US$ 35,00/month  Cloud Desktop with Nvidia GPU 12 Gb VRAM  Quadro P6000 ! 

 

i7MSZVxg.jpg
Example: https://www.ebay.com...ards/2079244091

 

Shadow Tech here

 

Disvantages:

 

- No Public IP, tip: you can use ZeroTier VPN to access by RDP from Android TV Box as a alternative. ( You can use Splashtop too with ZeroTier)

- Only Windows 10 Home;

- Cant be used into a corporative enviroment.

- Very restrictive ToS.

- Sometimes unstable service;

- Proprietary Desktop Streaming system;

- Need at least 15 Mbps to have a good experience...

- You can't  run more than 3 or more Shadow Desktops at same local network with the proprietary streaming system ( internet bandwith problems will make this  impossible ).

 

Advantages:

 

- Full Desktop Experience;

- Very expensive GPU dedicated exclusive to you by only US$ 35,00 a month.

- Good to users that want to run GPU applications and dont have money to buy a Nvidia Quadro P6000 12 GB NVRAM.

- Windows 10 Home License included.

- Good Support;

 

To test Shadow.tech, create a account with California data,  and wait +/- 5 days for machine activation. Use my Cupom code CRIJB0PV ( US$ 10,00 discount )

 

Install Android APK of Shadow on you Android TV Box, put a keyboard and mouse, and you have a full 60 fps machine with a very expensive dedicated GPU by US$ 35,00 a month... Yes, working on cheap Android TV Boxes !

 

APK: https://play.google....om.blade.shadow

 

0t29I8Pg.jpg

 

OBS : Is not needed to buy the Shadow Box, Android TV Box works very well !  :)

 

https://shadow.tech/int/

 

Use my CUPOM CODE to get US$ 10,00 disccount on the first month ! 

CRIJB0PV

 

Last tip: To make your keyboard Windows Keys, ALT+TAB and others keys functions, install VirtualHere on your Shadow computer and on your Android TV Box, make the connection attaching your remote USB Keyboard ! And Voa-lá all Keyboard keys will work (you will lost background Android Access ) ! Believe the experience is like a local desktop, its like you have a US$ 10.000 Computer with your Android TV Box !  

 

I will share this post in my website too. Done: http://www.mgdtecnol...00usd-computer/

Windows 10 Professional 64 bits running at Digital Ocean DEMO is out !  Running at US$ 20,00 Droplet with 4GB of RAM ! Very good performance with SSD Disk.

ATTENTION !!!! Do not use ready-made Windows image templates from unknown and unsafe sources! Install yourself to your preferred Windows version from scratch and be safe from Malware and Trojans. If you search Google how to install Windows on Digital Ocean, you'll find ready-made images, do not do it at all, you can not rely on such an installation, be aware!

I wonder what is the actual legal status of the license in these cases.

 

The part here:

http://www.mgdtecnol...ows-thinclient/

 

 

I will teach you here, how to install any version of Windows on both Vultr and Digital Ocean. 

But pay attention, according to the Microsoft License ( EULA ) about Windows Desktops on Cloud, the company has changed their licenses... About this today you have two legal options. You can only host 'Microsoft Windows 10 Enterprise with VDA or VDI license' on Cloud or use a Windows Server with Terminal Services license with RDS Calls. So keep in mind if you want to start your Cloud Desktops on Vultr and Digital with a different version of Microsoft Windows first you need to learn and do it your own risk ( to not be illegal about license terms ( EULA ) ).

doesn't seem to me as clearing anything.

 

As a side note about the given site, and JFYI, it is not like an "About Us" with some form of Lorem Ipsum is particularly inviting:

 http://www.mgdtecnol...ntent/about-us/

 

As well it is not clear if this whole thing is a spot for mgdtecnologia.com.br or it is a personal project (hence the request for donations via Paypal) :unsure:

 

Surely there will be the need for a "robust", "reliable" and "very fast" internet connection, not something that many people has AFAICT. 

For the cybercafes it would be fine, (no connection, no party ;)), for schools maybe, definitely not for hospitals or more loosely any work environment where the computing has a "mission critical" role.

Hello Wonko,

 

The site still needs to be upgraded and finished. I'm still defining if I'm going to charge something for the solution. At first I am sharing a part of my labs as a personal project, even so I ask for donations to someone who is going to implant and feel grateful. About licensing Microsoft is like I said, the professional needs to study how Microsoft licensing works because it is in constant change even more with the new Builds like Windows 10 for Remote Access.

 

Lets see if community has interest in this type of ThinClients with Android TV Boxes. 

 

Website updated. About us fixed.

Hi Rebit, good video on the website.
 
Just a typo, where it is "preffered" should be "prefered".

Can you do a video showing some every day actions using the remote desktop?

From my side I see no issue when the instructions are clear for end-users to repeat on their own, and at the same time have the option of buying a ready-made machine from the author himself, which would also come with support.

 

All in all this looks fun.

Um abraço :cheers:

Why is not so common to have 'Windows 10 Cloud Desktop' on any Cloud Service ?

 

Cloud providers should be  Microsoft Authorized QMTH Partner, Datacenter Tier 3.
