Wyse Technology's Newest Provisioning Software Brings Reliability to Client Virtualization

Wyse Technology, the global leader in thin computing and client virtualization, today announced the availability of Wyse's provisioning software, WSM 3.0. WSM 3.0 delivers full PC functionality on a zero client, while creating scalable, low-cost and easy to manage architectures for all organization sizes.

Unlike other solutions that only work in a limited local area network, WSM 3.0 is purpose-built for organizations, typically in K-12 education institutions or retail and banking industries, with a large number of remote small and medium size sites, spread across multiple regions or even continents. Some of the new features that emphasize this functionality include:

  • Faster application streaming and pre-fetching
  • High availability for distributed sites
  • Full PC functionality, including Microsoft Windows 7
  • OS and application content distribution management
  • User setting and data preservation

WSM 3.0 uses distributed architecture scalability combined with the flexibility of being able to run your environment on Microsoft Server 2003, 2008 or XP Professional, or Wyse WSM Appliance Device. Users are also able to create and provision their virtual clients with VMware Virtual Center Integration. Most important for public sector and financial customers, WSM centralizes security and allows no local storage in order to keep the system safe.

"Wyse WSM 3.0 is every IT managers' dream come true," said Daghan Altas, Product Manager at Wyse Technology. "By providing fewer images to manage and provisioning the complete operating system while integrating Active Directory via a Web-based administrative console, WSM 3.0 takes away all the PC management headaches."

Russell Leitzen, CTO at KMTelecom, a Kasson, Minnesota-based technology and communication service provider, has first-hand knowledge of the positive impact WSM has had at Kasson-Mantorville Public Schools in Minnesota. "KMTelecom helped Kasson-Mantorville Schools discover that WSM and Wyse R00L zero clients could meet all of the district needs without requiring significant investment in server hardware and software virtualize the desktops. For organizations struggling with the costs associated with large-scale virtualization implementations, WSM has been a successful alternative."

Leitzen continued, "Because the Wyse zero clients run the Windows XP Professional operating system locally, the students are able to view files and streaming video without even realizing they aren't using a PC."

"The Wyse WSM provisioning software is a robust and complete solution and NetSupport continues to be very excited and supportive towards this newest version," said Chris Lovesey, Marketing Manager at NetSupport. "By working with Wyse, we can run our software seamlessly on a highly-reliable, fully-functional, cost and energy-efficient infrastructure and deliver an innovative solution for the education market."

"Enabling businesses and non-profits to get the most out of their technology investment is important to us," says Matthew McDonough, CTO of Brain Trust Technologies LLC, a Michigan based technology solutions and managed services provider. "WSM allows us to provide a managed client environment that delivers uncompromised experience and performance while simplifying the setup, maintenance and management of the IT infrastructure."

"Like practically every U.S. educational institution, we are trying to do more with less," according to Chris Samuels, Systems Engineer at Myron L. Powell Elementary School in Cedarville, New Jersey. "The combination of Wyse zero clients and WSM has been a real boon for our school. Students have access to state of the art technology while the school has reduced our technology expenditures and eliminated a costly PC replacement cycle."

"Wyse continues to deliver an innovative product line to meet the needs of diverse customers, especially those with remote workforces," said Arthur Chiang, vice president of Global End User Services at IBM. "The release of WSM 3.0 is another example of enabling enterprise clients to empower their end users with virtualized desktops for reliable access to the applications and information they need to succeed."

Wyse WSM 3.0 is available immediately at $200/device seat. More information is available at http://www.wyse.com/products/software/wsm/index.asp
