Today Wyse Technology announced the availability of the Wyse X90cw, an ultra-mobile virtual client, new from the ground up, second generation device designed for "anywhere" access to cloud and client virtualization environments.
The Wyse X90cw features the benefits of other Wyse virtual clients, but in a form factor of a netbook.
Because the Wyse X90cw has no hard drives and no server-side data stored on the device, these devices are highly secure. That means that mobile workers no longer have to worry as much about exposure of sensitive data to insecure environments. As all data is stored and accessed remotely, the risk of data loss through stolen or mislaid laptops is eliminated.
The Wyse X90cw features an 11.6" widescreen LED backlight screen, built-in Webcam, integrated wireless b/g/n, Bluetooth 2.1 and support for 3G cards and 6-cell Li-Ion battery providing up to 8 hours of autonomy.
The Wyse X90cw comes with Microsoft Windows Embedded Standard 2009 operating system, providing users with a high performance and highly reliable platform that seamlessly connects to existing IT infrastructures and delivers access to the most advanced Web browser and media player capabilities in a virtual client. These devices are optimized for Citrix XenApp, Citrix XenDesktop, Microsoft Terminal Server and Hyper-V, and VMware View environments.
The X90cw is designed to support the key protocols driving desktop virtualization and cloud computing, including Citrix ICA/HDX, Microsoft RDP 7, and PCoIP found in VMware View.
Wyse X90cw is available immediately at $699 and is expected to be certified for VMware View within 30 days.
