Dell recently announced its new Wyse 3040 Thin Client. The Wyse 3040 Thin Client “provides a cost-effective endpoint solution that is highly secure, yet easy to deploy and manage.”
Among the Wyse’s accolades are the industry’s first entry-level Intel x86 quad-core thin client, 30 percent better performance than earlier generations and superb performance, four USB ports – one of which is USB 3.1 Gen 1 for high-speed connectivity and two DisplayPort interfaces, for dual digital display (2560×1600) support.
Wyse also offers compatibility with Citrix, Microsoft and VMware virtual workspace environments. Wyse comes with either ThinOS, ultra-secure with no published APIs, or ThinLinux, based on SUSE Linux (available June 2017), operating systems.
Dell includes in the Wyse package,
“a full suite of on-prem, off-prem and auto management software options to deliver robust, enterprise-level manageability that can scale to tens of thousands of devices.”
Wyse Device Manager and Wyse Cloud Client Manager can be used to create remote configuration and policy management through a single, intuitive interface. Overall, the Wyse 3040 basically “allows IT managers to keep costs low while supporting basic productivity and light multitasking.” The Wyse cost is US$329 and is currently available worldwide.
