Wyse Technology Wins 2011 Microsoft Windows Embedded OEM Partner Excellence Award

Wyse Z Class Thin Client and Infrastructure Software Optimize Performance, Security and User Experience by Enabling State-of-the-Art Desktop Virtualization and Cloud Deployments

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - Jul 12, 2011) - Wyse Technology, the global leader in cloud client computing, today announced receiving the 2011 OEM Partner Excellence Award from Microsoft Windows Embedded. Wyse and four other partners were honored for delivering highly innovative Windows Embedded products and driving increased Windows Embedded adoption and awareness with prospects and customers.

Microsoft's award recognized Wyse's breakthrough new Z class high-performance thin client family. The Wyse Z class brings unrivalled performance to users demanding more from their virtual desktops, including the first SuperSpeed USB 3.0 connectivity, dual core processing and DisplayPort, DVI or VGA display options. Wyse's Z class thin client models are available with Windows Embedded Standard 7 or Windows Embedded Standard 2009, and Wyse has actively incorporated Windows Embedded Device Manager 2011 to assist in managing its Windows Embedded-based thin clients.

Owing to their strategic relationship, Wyse has consistently supported Microsoft's virtualization efforts; most recently delivering RDP 7.1 and RemoteFX support to customers using thin clients based on Wyse-enhanced Windows Embedded Standard 7. Wyse thin clients with RemoteFX deliver a high fidelity user experience on the VDI desktop along with robust USB device support.

The Windows Embedded-based firmware in Wyse's thin client portfolio gives IT departments the flexibility to deploy fully functional desktop computers with better manageability and lower total cost of ownership than personal computers.

"The Windows Embedded team would like to extend congratulations to Wyse Technology and all of this year's OEM Partner Excellence Award winners," said Doug Follett, regional director of OEM sales for OED at Microsoft. "Microsoft is pleased to partner with organizations such as Wyse to bring industry-leading enterprise and consumer devices powered by Windows Embedded technology to market."

"It's very gratifying to be recognized for our efforts with respect to assuring that our products are tightly integrated with those at Microsoft," according to Param Desai, Sr. Director, Product Management, with Wyse Technology. "The Wyse Z class thin clients run on Windows Embedded Standard 7 or Windows Embedded 2009, and Wyse has actively incorporated Windows Embedded Device Manager 2011 to assist in managing its cloud clients."

As a partner with Microsoft, Wyse provides customers timely access to valuable Microsoft strategies and technologies, including Wyse-exclusive optimized protocol implementations. These benefits enable Wyse to deliver excellent service and support for complex environments, such as those in most large enterprises.
