Wyse Thin OS - VDI Edition
The new version of Wyse's operating system allows businesses to manage desktops from the data centre by placing a user's desktop environment in a virtual machine, hosted on an industry standard server and accessed by a thin client. The software is built on VMware's Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI). According to the vendor, VDI simplifies and centralises the execution of applications in the data centre, reducing costs and complexity associated with using PCs to deliver applications. The software also virtualises, optimises, and manages server resources to host and deliver secure, isolated desktops that are always on and accessible from anywhere. This helps improve security and compliance by centralising sensitive enterprise data in the data centre within isolated virtual machines.
