Wyse has begun shipping its self-configuring client technology for the cloud and Wyse-enhanced Microsoft Windows Embedded virtual desktop environments. The solution is called Wyse Configuration Manager (WCM), previewed earlier this year as Wyse “Project Pyramid.”
With the introduction of WCM, Wyse offers automatic client management across all of its operating systems (Wyse Zero, Wyse ThinOS, Linux, and Windows Embedded).
Wyse Configuration Manager allows IT departments to auto-configure thin clients based on Wyse-enhanced Windows Embedded Standard 7. By automating the deployment of Windows Embedded Standard 7 thin clients throughout a private cloud, WCM offers multiple benefits to organizations.
With WCM, client devices are updated to the latest configuration automatically on startup or user logon. IT determines the desired configuration, and WCM automatically does the rest, with no imaging or re-booting required. WCM works with Microsoft write-filter technology, so it’s secure. Users can be stationary, mobile, office or home-based.
Wyse Configuration Manager 1.0 is available immediately and is free to all Wyse customers that are currently using Windows Embedded Standard 7.
WCM for Windows Embedded Standard 2009 will be available later this year.
