Dell Wyse delivers more cloud clients

A new range of cloud clients from Dell's Wyse business promises a balance of performance, energy efficiency and manageability.

The midrange Dell Wyse D series is intended for use with virtualised desktop systems from Citrix, Dell, Microsoft and VMware.

Based on the hardware as the high-end Z series, it is said to outperform the equivalent HP product on graphics benchmarks.

A range of options are available for enhanced multimedia support. Connectivity includes Gigabit Ethernet, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.

The D series comprises the D90D7 (with Windows Embedded Standard 7), D90DW (with Windows Embedded Standard 2009), D50D (with a Dell Wyse enhanced version of SUSE Linux Enterprise), and the D00D (a full-featured but centrally managed 'cloud PC').

"The Dell Wyse D class mid-range cloud client family provides new levels of desktop performance in an extremely efficient, compact form factor, as well as extends Dell's cloud client computing offering to better serve the customer needs," said Param Desai, executive director of product management at Dell Wyse.

"The D class offers businesses the efficiency, flexibility and ease of integration they require, while end users enjoy a rich, high-performance multimedia desktop experience."

The D90D7 can be ordered immediately, with prices starting at $670. Other models will go on sale "in the near future".
