Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
Wyse's new thin clients include the Wyse Thin OS 6.5 OS that improves security across virtual clients. The new clients also offer a multimedia accelerator designed to improve the user experience.
As the momentum around thin-client computing grows this year, Wyse is working to update its product line.
The indirect sales thin-client company has introduced two new thin clients, the C10LE and V10LE, which include Wyse's ThinOS 6.5, the most recent upgrade that is based on a software solution designed to increase security across virtual clients.
The new clients feature a multimedia accelerator to ensure a lighter load on the server and network and enabling Wyse’s collaborative processing architecture to deliver the best user experience, the company said. The C10LE draws just under 7 watts, and for higher performance the V10LE increases its speed by 50 percent over its V10L predecessor.
The V10LE thin client can also support an extra monitor with built-in dual video support, and functionality expansion is enabled with an optional PC-card expansion slot, the company said.
Wyse said its ThinOS is optimized for desktop virtualization from the three major vendors -- Citrix HDX, Microsoft RDP and VMware View environments – and provide a software layer local to a thin client device that enables quick boot time, automatic updates and administrative simplicity.
