Dell unveils smallest Wyse thin client

Dell has launched an x86 quad-core thin client designed for a virtual desktop environment.

Known as the Wyse 3040 thin client, the device is compatible with Citrix XenDesktop, Microsoft RDS and VMware Horizon.

It will also support the VMware Blast Extreme remote protocol from June.

The Wyse 3040 is loaded with the virus-resistant Wyse ThinOS software that has no published APIs and therefore no attack surface.

From June, Wyse ThinLinux, a thin client-optimised software based on SUSE Linux that has been further hardened and optimised by Dell for thin client environments, will also be available.

The Wyse 3040 supports a range of peripheral attachments and network connections. It has two DisplayPort interfaces, support for dual digital display (2560x1600), and four USB ports, one being USB 3.1 Gen 1 for high-speed connectivity.

Out-of-the-box automatic set-up, configuration and management can be done with the Wyse Device Manager and Wyse Cloud Client Manager.

The Wyse 3040 weighs 240 grammes and is available globally.
