It’s a big day for Microsoft and Wyse. Today we delivered on a promise to support RDP 7.1 and Microsoft RemoteFX immediately upon availability from Microsoft. Working closely with Microsoft, Wyse has ensured that mutual customers will benefit from these latest Microsoft technologies announced today, expected to accelerate adoption of VDI and cloud computing on Microsoft platforms.
As you may have heard, Microsoft RemoteFX leverages the power of virtualized graphics resources and advanced codecs to recreate the fidelity of hardware-assisted graphics acceleration, including support for 3D content and Windows Aero, on a remote user's device. This allows for a local-like, remote user experience over a variety of possible host, client and network configurations. More information on RemoteFX is available on the Tech Net blogs at http://bit.ly/RemoteFX
RemoteFX is supported immediately on Wyse cloud PCs, our powerful, cloud-based alternative to legacy PCs. Wyse cloud PCs directly support Windows 7 SP1, as available from Microsoft today. Wyse will also deliver RDP 7.1 and RemoteFX support to customers using thin clients based on Wyse-enhanced Windows Embedded Standard 7 this quarter, followed by Wyse-enhanced Windows Embedded Standard 2009, and the upcoming Windows Embedded Compact 7 platform. Wyse new thin clients based on Windows Embedded Standard 7 deliver the power, familiarity and reliability of the popular Windows 7 operating system in a highly customizable thin client device, including out-of-the-box support and seamless integration with Windows Server® 2008, RDP 7.1 protocol, and RemoteFX functionality. Wyse was the first company to deliver Windows Embedded Standard 7 on a wide range of desktop and mobile thin clients . As a result of the close relationship between Wyse and Microsoft, Wyse plans to extend support of RDP 7.1 to additional Wyse platforms this year.
