Wyse Updates Its Ultra-Low Cost Virtual Desktop Software Solution Improving End User Experience in Diverse Desktop Virtualization-Driven Cloud Computing Environments

New Version of Wyse Virtual Desktop Accelerator Software, Now Accelerates Network Performance by Twenty Times as the Most Inexpensive Alternative Against Expensive Hardware-Based Network Acceleration Solutions

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - Aug 29, 2011) - Wyse Technology, the global leader in cloud client computing, today announced enhancements to one of the company's innovative virtualization software solutions, Wyse Virtual Desktop Accelerator™ (VDA). Wyse VDA 2.0 delivers broad protocol support including, RDP6, RDP7, RemoteFX and HDX, and dramatically improves performance over networks with bandwidth issues and delays up to 140 milliseconds or more.

Wyse VDA is a software-only solution for Wyse devices and supported PCs in desktop virtualization and cloud computing environments that accelerates the user experience by correcting issues common with long or latent networks. Wyse VDA neutralizes the effects of network delays (latencies) and errors (packet loss) making it ideal for remote, branch, or field-based users. Wyse VDA is a cost-effective software-only alternative to hardware-based network acceleration, delivering the best user experience for the network bandwidth allocated to users.

Centralized management of geographically distributed office locations and small remote branches lowers costs and improves security. However, long WAN links slow network connectivity and limited bandwidth results in decreased end user productivity making virtual desktop computing difficult. Wyse VDA 2.0 eliminates the limitations introduced by slow WANs and makes virtual desktop computing reliable, fast, consistent and responsive.

With Wyse VDA, customers receive a simple software-only solution which equates to IT budget savings and avoids purchasing, configuring and installing complex and disruptive fat PCs.

Wyse VDA 2.0 is available immediately. For more information, please visit:
