Wyse Technology has launched a product designed to provide thin client users with a full-featured desktop PC environment.
Ricardo Antuna, vice-president of product line management at Wyse, said Wyse Streaming Manager (WSM) allowed IT administrators to take advantage of the security, manageability and cost benefits of thin computing while providing a rich user experience.
WSM uses Windows Server-based services that independently stream the operating system and applications. It offers an image-creation tool for IT administrators to create and deploy operating system images, an application packager that allows IT administrators to create and deploy application images, and a centralised web-based interface.
The company is also collaborating with VMware to deliver enhanced virtual desktop computing software. Wyse and VMware plan to co-operative on joint engineering projects, customer engagements, channel partner programs and marketing initiatives.
As a key first phase of the collaboration, Wyse has joined the VMware Community Source program and plans to integrate its Wyse infrastructure deployment and management systems across its thin client platform.
