Tablets. Slates. Handhelds. Windows 7. Android. Meego. Wyse Technology, the global leader in cloud client computing, attempts to make news with a twist in the usual newsprint in recent weeks. Wyse has announced the availability of a family of desktop and mobile thin clients based on, take a bow, Windows Embedded Standard 7 operating system.
Three new models, the Wyse R90L7 high performance thin client, Wyse X90c7 mobile thin client, and Wyse C90LE7 compact thin client, deliver enhanced security, management, and a visually rich Windows Aero experience in remote and virtual desktop environments.
Windows Embedded Standard 7 delivers the power, familiarity, and reliability of the popular Windows 7 operating system in a highly customizable and componentized form.
The Wyse-enhanced Windows Embedded Standard 7 models provide seamless connectivity to virtualized, public, and private cloud environments based on Microsoft’s Windows Server 2008 R2, as well as those by Citrix and VMware.
These are ideal for organizations wanting a combination of broad support for cloud computing and desktop virtualization, and local Windows 7 features including Internet Explorer 8, Windows Media Player 12, and supported locally embedded Windows applications.
