Wyse Intros New Line of Thin Clients

Wyse Technology reportedly has introduced a new line of thin clients designed for virtualization environments.

The company says the thin clients will help knowledge workers who require smaller data centers for their work.
A thin client focuses on transmitting input and output between the user and the remote server. It is a client computer or client software in client-server architecture network which depends primarily on the central server for processing needs.
According to Phil Underwood, senior vice president of worldwide operations at Wyse, the company realized early on that the client virtualization market will only grow to its potential if knowledge workers requirements are met without requiring larger, more expensive datacenters.
“Our new thin clients deliver the best user experience ever using Wyse’s Collaborative Processing Architecture, in which the client itself reduces the load on the datacenter,” Underwood said.
Wyse says the new line of thin clients – including the R Class product for Linux and XPe and environments, pictured right - introduced by the company supports functions such as high resolution, high-definition video, dual digital display and future graphics protocols.
Other features include dual digital monitor support at 2560 x 1600; advanced Bluetooth 2.0 for VoIP and Unified Communications (News - Alert) applications; discrete graphics processing unit; PCI express expansion; and Green IT support.
Wyse states that the performance of its new thin clients comes in three levels. The first level is the Wyse R50LE and Wyse, the second level is the Wyse R50L and Wyse R90L; and the third level is the Wyse V10L Dual DVI and mobile Wyse X50L. The company says these levels provide various benefits such as increased processing power, improved multimedia handling, and Bluetooth and integrated Wi-Fi options.
Mobile workers can now use the Wyse X50L mobile Linux client as it is specifically designed for thin computing environments, says Wyse. According to the company, X50L provides a better multimedia experience when it comes to collaborative processing as the product is equipped with a fast processor, powerful WXGA TFT LCD screen and flexible connectivity with four USB ports.
In September 2008, Wyse partnered with Novell to provide the joint delivery of Wyse Enhanced SUSE Linux Enterprise. Wyse Enhanced SUSE Linux Enterprise lets end-users to maximize productivity and minimize training costs due to the easy-to-use graphical user interface with cross-platform multimedia support, USB peripheral support and flexible hardware options.
