Wyse Technology Improves Virtual Desktop Environments With New Flash Acceleration Technology
Wyse Technology, the global leader in thin computing and client virtualization, today officially announced its new acceleration solution for Adobe Flash, as part of its incredibly popular TCX virtualization software suite. The new functionality improves the end user experience on virtual desktops by solving the Flash content quality challenge for VDI and Terminal Services environments.

 

"Every end user wants the performance of their thin client to be as good as or better than their PC," according to Mark Bowker, Analyst, Enterprise Strategy Group. "Wyse has been steadily deploying software as part of its TCX suite toward that end and the addition of Flash acceleration capabilities will help accelerate virtual desktop adoption."

 

With Flash applications abundant in all industry verticals, especially financial services and education, customers are thrilled that the content acceleration challenge has been solved without compromising the end user experience.

 

Offered as part of the Wyse TCX virtualization software suite, the new Flash acceleration extends the capabilities of the Microsoft RDP and Citrix ICA/HDX protocols for Flash Player 9 and 10 and Internet Explorer 6 and 7. Compatibility with VMware View and Citrix XenDesktop connection brokers, using Windows XP Pro, Vista or Windows 7 completes the solution.

 

"Wyse continues to innovate and stretch the capabilities of their thin clients to provide a rich virtual desktop experience," said Sumit Dhawan, vice president, product marketing, XenDesktop product group at Citrix Systems. "Wyse technologies perfectly complement and extend Citrix HDX technologies to deliver an excellent, high-definition user experience and expand the ability of IT to offer virtual desktops to a wide variety of users."

 

With Flash acceleration, end users' animation, online training, YouTube, and video-rich Web sites are now seamlessly presented.

 

"Thin client customers using sites like CNN.com and NYSE MarkeTRAC with Flash-based tickers, are significantly improved by Wyse's new Flash content acceleration capabilities," says Param Desai, Product Manager at Wyse Technology. "Flash acceleration continues our efforts to make the thin client user experience even better than a PC."

 

Pricing and Availability

Flash acceleration will be commercially available in October 2009, available on Wyse's V class and R class thin clients with Windows XP Embedded, Windows Embedded Standard 2009, or Wyse ThinOS operating systems, and supported PCs.
