Features 11-inch LED backlight screen and Intel Atom processor
Wyse Technology, a provider of thin computing-based virtualisation software and hardware offerings, has released mobile virtual client X90cw, a second generation device designed for anywhere access to cloud and client virtualisation environments.
According to Wyse, the X90cw is equipped with Intel Atom processor and 11.6-inch widescreen LED backlight screen, and features the benefits of other Wyse virtual clients. It has no hard drives and no server-side data storage on the device. It is designed to support protocols that drive desktop virtualisation and cloud computing, including Citrix ICA/HDX, Microsoft RDP 7, and PCoIP found in VMware View.
The X90cw, which weighs around 3.2 lbs, includes connectivity options such as built-in webcam, integrated wireless b/g/n, bluetooth 2.1 and support for 3G cards. It draws 18 watts of energy from its 6-cell Li-Ion battery that provides up to 8 hours of autonomy, Wyse said.
The devices are optimised for Citrix XenApp, XenDesktop, Microsoft Terminal Server, Hyper-V and VMware View environments, and comes with Microsoft Windows Embedded Standard 2009 operating system, the company said.
Ricardo Antuna, vice president of Product Management, business development and alliances at Wyse Technology, said: The combination of security and convenience in the Wyse X90cw is unprecedented. The Wyse X90cw is now the new wave of compact, lightweight, high performance internet devices that assures the end user experience is as good as or better than a comparable PC, but the security of a virtual client means that it’s now more dangerous to misplace a smart phone than it is a computer.
