As a key first phase of the collaboration, Wyse has joined the VMware Community Source program and plans to integrate its Wyse infrastructure deployment and management solutions with the VMware virtual infrastructure, across its thin-client platform portfolio: Windows XPe, Windows CE, Wyse Thin OS and Linux.
“We are very excited about working with VMware to deliver the combined benefits of virtualization and thin computing to our enterprise customers,” said Ali Fenn, Vice President Business Development & Alliances at Wyse Technology. “Both companies are committed to providing an end-to-end solution that makes for seamless adoption of this exciting new technology. A virtualized environment is the perfect complement for our thin clients, allowing customers to easily deploy integrated, end-to-end solutions.”
“Over the years many of VMware’s customers have extended their VMware virtual infrastructure, originally deployed for server consolidation, to also consolidate full end-user desktop environments onto centrally managed servers. This approach delivers a unique set of combination of increased security and reduced IT management costs while preserving compatibility with a dedicated end-user desktop model,” said Brian Byun, Vice President of Products and Alliances at VMware. “We are excited to be working with Wyse Technology to combine their leadership in thin computing with our proven capabilities in dynamic, virtualized server infrastructure. We look forward to enhancing our joint virtual desktop solutions through the VMware Community Source program.”
