  • 24 April, 2007 16:42

<p>Secure Wyse Thin OS Provides Full “PC” Experience with a “Zero-Management” Model for Any Desktop Virtualisation Environment</p>
<p>Sydney, Australia – 24 April, 2007 - With well over a million thin client users already enjoying the benefits of the Wyse Thin OS, Wyse Technology, today announced plans to upgrade its flagship operating system. Wyse will introduce new features and functionality to close the “end-user experience gap” between PCs and thin computers, on its innovative OS without compromising the security, manageability or blazing speed.</p>
<p>Wyse Thin OS is the smallest, fastest and most secure purpose-built operating system for thin computing. With a boot time of less than 5 seconds, and built-in support for Microsoft® Terminal Server, Citrix® Application Delivery and VMware® Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) architectures, Wyse Thin OS leads the industry in performance, and flexibility when it comes to server-centric desktop and application virtualisation.</p>
<p>Wyse has listened to the thin computing community by adding more desktop flexibility and performance to Wyse Thin OS while maintaining its rock solid security. The next version of the Wyse Thin OS, due out later this quarter, will include support for more hardware platforms, a dual monitor solution, improved graphical capabilities and USB mass storage support.</p>
<p>"We’ve invested heavily in Wyse Thin OS because it really sets us apart from everyone else in the thin computing market,” said Tarkan Maner, President and CEO of Wyse Technology. “For starters, it enhances application and desktop virtualisation across all major platforms, including built-in support for VMware, Citrix and Microsoft. Plus, Wyse Thin OS gives users unprecedented speed and performance resulting in a robust ‘PC experience’ on a thin client.”</p>
<p>Other features to be added include more secure and flexible wireless functionality, as well as increased security around authentication mechanisms. In addition, Wyse Thin OS will include several new breakthrough features including secure dynamic provisioning of the operating system to a variety of device types delivering a richer experience for the user.</p>
<p>At less than two megabytes in size and with blazing fast performance on even a low-cost processor, Wyse Thin OS gives hardware manufacturers the ability to create lightweight and high-performance thin-computing solutions for a variety of new markets.</p>
<p>Wyse Thin OS provides thin-client users with a simple solution that delivers big on performance, management and security. It delivers twice the typical screen drawing performance per CPU cycle as other options, utilises a “zero-management” model that provides for self-management, reducing the need for additional management software.
Just as important, Wyse Thin OS is one of the most secure thin-client operating systems, as it does not have a published API, making it far more difficult for hackers to target.</p>
