Wyse Technology First to Deliver Microsoft RemoteFX Certified Desktop and Mobile Thin Clients

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - Dec 14, 2011) - Wyse Technology, the global leader in cloud client computing, today announced it is the first company to provide certified Microsoft RemoteFX Enabled thin and zero framework clients. This certification elevates Wyse thin clients to new levels of virtual desktop performance when running in a Microsoft Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) and Windows Server 2008 R2 Remote Desktop Services environment. No other thin or zero client vendor has achieved Microsoft RemoteFX logo certification.

"Microsoft RemoteFX represents a set of key capabilities in Windows Server 2008 R2 Remote Desktop Services that enable a media-rich remote desktop environment for VDI and session virtualization and allow for a full-fidelity, local-like user experience of any screen content," said Dean Paron, group program manager, Remote Desktop Virtualization Management, at Microsoft Corp. "By certifying a set of thin client devices as RemoteFX-enabled, Wyse is underscoring their commitment to provide their customers with solutions that ensure a quality user experience for a virtual desktop environment enhanced by RemoteFX."

Microsoft RemoteFX leverages the power of virtualized graphics resources and advanced codecs to recreate the fidelity of hardware-assisted graphics acceleration, including support for 3D content and Windows Aero, on a remote user's device. This allows for a local-like, remote user experience over a variety of possible host, client and network configurations.
