Dell has launched a new high-performance, efficient thin client. The Wyse 5060 provides greater security options and complete virtual workspace compatibility with Citrix, Microsoft and VMware, according to the company press release.
The Wyse 5060 thin client features an AMD 2.4GHz quad core processor that supports up to 8GB RAM and 64GB flash. It connects with Citrix XenDesktop, Microsoft RDS and VMWare Horizon.
According to a company press release, additional features include:
- Operating System Support: The Wyse 5060 is available with a choice in OS, giving customers the ability to configure the thin client based on their specific requirements. At launch, the 5060 can be purchased with Dell’s own Wyse ThinOS software or with Windows Embedded Standard (WES) 7p. In early 2017, an upgrade to Windows 10 IoT will be available for WES customers, and the 5060 will also then be available with Wyse ThinLinux.
- Security: 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. At the software level, Wyse ThinOS software is a virus-mitigated operating system with unpublished APIs (application programming interfaces).
- Connectivity: 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.
- Manageability: Dell offers a full suite of on-premise, off-premise, and auto management software options to deliver robust, enterprise-level manageability that can scale to tens of thousands of devices. 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 console.
“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 Steve Lalla, SVP, Commercial Client Software & Solutions, 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.”
