Next-Generation Embedded Operating System from Microsoft To Be Available on Wyse Thin Clients

Wyse Technology, the global leader in thin computing, today announced its support for Windows Embedded Standard 2009(tm) across all Wyse product lines. 

Windows Embedded Standard 2009(tm) is the highly anticipated next generation of Windows XP Embedded(tm) that delivers the power, familiarity, and reliability of the Windows OS in componentized form. A technology preview is available from Microsoft, with general availability of Windows Embedded Standard scheduled for Q4 of this year.

Wyse's entire line of clients will support the Windows Embedded Standard upon general availability, providing organizations with the ideal means to capitalize on the benefits of thin computing atop a Microsoft platform. The platforms which will support the Windows Embedded Standard 2009 include the compact S90, the versatile V90L/LE, the flexible G90 and the newly-released mobile thin clients the X90(e) and X90L(e). These products will allow the flexibility for customers to choose the ideal form factor that meets their end user needs while taking advantage of this next generation Windows Embedded Standard operating system.

"Microsoft is excited to have the support of Wyse, a global leader in thin client technology, for its Windows Embedded Standard 2009 technology," said Irena Andonova, Marketing Group Product Manager for the Windows Embedded Business. "Embedded devices are increasingly becoming smarter, and by pairing Wyse's expertise in thin computing with Microsoft's command of the embedded OS, we will be able to provide the most advanced solution experience for end-users." 

Wyse's support of Windows Embedded Standard 2009 will help IT administrators rapidly deploy devices that provide rich applications and end-user experiences and services, while easily connecting to common industry standards and Microsoft technologies. With the latest features and security updates included in Windows Embedded Standard 2009 paired with the innovative Wyse thin computing software (Wyse TCX), all Wyse Windows Embedded Standard 2009 products will provide a rich user experience with the capability to seamlessly connect and take advantage of new features in Windows Server 2008 while connecting to application delivery technologies like Microsoft Terminal services and Citrix XenApp, or virtual desktop environments running under virtualization technologies from Microsoft Citrix or Vmware.

"With the benefits of reduced IT administration, combined with energy reduction, lower carbon emissions, and longer life-span, thin clients continue to provide attractive alternatives in flexible computing in the enterprise," said Jeff McNaught, Chief Marketing Office at Wyse. "We are excited that Windows Embedded Standard 2009 provides the leading platform for a new generation of thin clients for our customers."
