Wyse Redefines Desktop Virtualization With a Ground-Breaking Zero Client Supporting Citrix, Microsoft, Quest, and VMware Platforms on a Single ARM SoC

Harnessing the Power of ARM SoC Technology and Zero Attack Surface Firmware, Wyse Now Enables Low-Cost, High-Performance and Most Secure Cloud Implementations

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - Mar 7, 2012) - Wyse Technology, the global leader in cloud client computing, today announced the availability of the Wyse T10 client, based on the ultra-secure Wyse zero framework*. The Wyse T10 broadens Wyse's portfolio of clients and can help cut the cost of delivering a seamless user experience for virtual desktops based on Citrix, Marvell, Microsoft, Quest Software and VMware technology with unparalleled security, ease of use and zero management. The Wyse T10 will be demonstrated at CeBIT in the BITKOM pavilion, hall 4, Wyse booth A04, from March 6th to 10th, 2012 in Hanover, Germany.

The Wyse T10 is the first platform in the industry to include Wyse optimized versions of the Citrix Receiver and Microsoft Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) 7.1 technologies, fully leveraging the built-in hardware acceleration capabilities of Marvell's ARM processor -- based SoC (System-on-Chip). This optimized 2D graphics remoting stack enables high-end features such as HD video, dual monitor connectivity and L-shaped desktop support which, until now, have not been made available in a compact design, low energy-consuming budget-conscious client. This combination of next-generation hardware and software optimized for Marvell's ARMADA 510 SoC lets IT administrators provide all users with devices that are Citrix HDX Ready™ for Citrix XenDesktop® 5.5 and/or VMware Ready™ for VMware View and/or Microsoft Remote Desktop Services (RDS) and/or Quest® vWorkspace ready -- enabling a smooth user experience, regardless of the budget.

The Wyse T10 can offer customers of all sizes a more secure client while helping reduce management and overall client cost. With the Wyse zero framework, the Wyse T10 is able to provide a secure, 'instant on' experience for end users -- booting up and logging into a virtual desktop in less than 10 seconds. With no exposed APIs and no attack surface, the Wyse T10 is malware and virus hardened, removing client security concerns.

Full AES 128 bit encryption enables encryption of network certificates on the client, a truly ironclad level of security. Management is simple with time consuming tasks such as software and configuration updates automated via simple central file servers. For enterprise management, full integration to Wyse Device Manager (WDM), a powerful, central management software suite, completes the scalable management paradigm, whether you have 100, 1,000 or over 10,000 devices to manage.

Wyse T10 enhancements include:

  • 2D graphics, H.264, WMV9 hardware acceleration
  • Dual monitors and L-shaped (rotation) monitor support
  • Gigabit Ethernet
  • 802.11 B/G Wi-Fi
  • 4 USB ports & DVI-I video interface
  • ENERGY STAR 5.2 compliant
  • High definition experience for XenDesktop 5.5 and XenApp 6.5 with Citrix HDX technology including MultiStream ICA with RTP Audio and Client-side webcam video compression
  • Microsoft RDP 7.1 capabilities
  • Quest vWorkspace broker support

"PCs are not only a huge security exposure, they simply take too much time and resources to manage and maintain," said Param Desai, Senior Director, Product Management at Wyse Technology. "At the same time, budgets are tight and not every implementation needs every possible feature. The Wyse T10 combines all the benefits of a powerful, cost-effective thin client deployment while removing all of the liabilities of PCs."
