With over 430 patents granted for innovation in cloud client-computing, thin client design, management and security, Dell is considered a major player in client virtualization. Dell is also a key player in driving down the cost and complexity of desktop virtualization, while providing better performance and making it easier than ever to plan, deploy and run VDI. The enterprise-class thin client can be scaled for deployments to various devices, and offers a low total cost of ownership by reducing IT’s time on ongoing management and maintenance.

“Today’s knowledge worker requires access to highly efficient, powerful systems and tools that will enable them to innovate, collaborate and share information in a secure environment,” said Jai Sahney, director, Cloud Client Computing, South Asia, Dell. “Our new Wyse 5060 quad core thin client provides the performance and capabilities that knowledge workers in virtualized desktop environments demand with the low acquisition cost and ease of management that IT requires.”

The Wyse 5060 thin client has an AMD 2.4GHz quad core processor that supports up to 8GB RAM and 64GB flash, offering up to 30 percent greater performance over the previous generation.

Additional features include: broad operating system support since the Wyse 5060 is available with a choice in OS; innovative security since the device itself includes an embedded Trusted Platform Module (TPM) chipset with the ability to recognize if a system’s integrity has been compromised while safely storing encryption keys, certificates and passwords; robust connectivity since the thin client supports dual 4K (3840×2160) monitors and provides multiple connectivity options with six USB ports, two of which are USB 3.0 for high-speed peripherals, as well as two DisplayPort connectors, wired networking or wireless 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac; and easy manageability since, through the Wyse Device Manager, IT teams can streamline remote configuration and policy management of corporate and user-owned client devices – including thin and zero clients, iOS and Android devices – through a single, intuitive console.

The Wyse 5060 thin client is compatible with all of the major virtualization software brokers including Citrix XenDesktop, Microsoft RDS and VMware Horizon. VMware Blast Extreme remote protocol is also supported on the WES and ThinLinux-based versions.

The Wyse 5060 thin client will be available starting Dec. 13.
