Wyse Extends its Leadership in Enterprise Desktop Virtualization

Wyse Thin Clients Are Now Integrated and Fully Compatible with Desktop Broker for Citrix Presentation Server

Wyse Technology, the global leader in thin computing, today announced Day One support for the Citrix Dynamic Desktop Initiative and the Desktop Broker solution, continuing its record of supporting the Citrix family of Access solutions for the enterprise.

Wyse Thin Clients across all platforms and operating systems, including the recently announced S10 VDI Edition, now support extensions to Citrix Presentation Server(TM) designed around desktop virtualization architecture. This integration allows customers of both Wyse and Citrix to leverage their existing thin computing and access infrastructure investments while taking advantage of the cost, security and manageability benefits of the virtual desktop approach. In addition to the Citrix DDI, Wyse supports VMware's Virtual Desktop Initiative (VDI) and IBM's Virtual Client Solutions (VCS), essentially providing the most advanced thin computing platform for all the leading desktop virtualization initiatives.

"By combining market and engineering leadership from Wyse and Citrix, customers will benefit from the seamless integration of best-of-breed technology that will ultimately deliver virtually unmatched security,
performance, reliability and manageability," said Tarkan Maner, president of worldwide field operations, Wyse. "Both companies are committed to driving more and more intelligence into the network and simplifying complexity at the edge. Thin computing solutions leveraging Wyse solutions at the edge and Citrix infrastructure represent a very powerful combination for the market, helping customers purchase and easily deploy integrated, end-to-end solutions."

"We're pleased that Wyse has included support for our Dynamic Desktop Initiative and the Desktop Broker from day one. Along with our industry leading family of Access and Security solutions, Citrix is proud to be delivering the most advanced infrastructure for the secure delivery of applications to thin devices in a virtual desktop architecture," said David Jones, corporate vice president of business development, Citrix.
