Dell releases Wyse 3040 thin client

Dell releases Wyse 3040 thin client 

The company’s Wyse 3040 is no bigger than a small pocketbook and can easily fit right between whatever stuff you have on your desk, or could conveniently be tucked away on the back of your monitor.

However, this minuscule device is the industry’s first entry-level x86 quad-core thin client, according to Dell. Its slim form 0.24kg shell features an Intel Atom X5 1.44Ghz quad-core processor that supports up to 2GB DDR3 RAM and 8GB flash.

The Wyse 3040 is compatible with Citrix, Microsoft, and VMware virtual workspace environments, providing customers a cost-effective endpoint solution that is secure and easy to deploy and manage, says Dell.

It also delivers 30 per cent better performance than previous generations of the product.

According to Dell’s own Dell Future Ready Workforce Study, organizations are increasingly relying on more powerful systems and tools that allow employees to collaborate and share information in a secure environment.

As many as 70 per cent of millennials, according to the study, feel advanced technology is crucial to their work.

At the same time, organizations are looking for affordable and easy to manage endpoint devices in order to cut cost.

“Our customers are looking for that ideal blend of security, performance, energy efficiency and price,” said Steve Lalla, senior vice-president, commercial client software and solutions at Dell. “The new Wyse 3040 thin client – the smallest and most efficient thin client – exceeds expectations of what an entry-level thin client can do.”

Other features of the Dell Wyse 3040 thin client are:

  • Choice in operating system: The Wyse 3040 comes with the virus-resistant Wyse ThinOS software that is ultra-secure with no published APIs and therefore no attack surface. Starting in June 2017, customers will also be able to choose Wyse ThinLinux, a thin client-optimized software based on SUSE Linux that has been further hardened and optimized by Dell for thin client environments.
  • Robust connectivity: Supporting a broad range of peripheral attachments and network connections to meet business needs, the Wyse 3040 thin client includes two DisplayPort interfaces, support for dual digital display (2560×1600), and four USB ports – one of which is USB 3.1 Gen 1 for high-speed connectivity.
  • Easy manageability: Dell offers a full suite of on-prem, off-prem and auto management software options to deliver robust, enterprise-level manageability that can scale to tens of thousands of devices. For simplified out-of-the-box automatic setup, configuration and management, Wyse Device Manager and Wyse Cloud Client Manager give IT teams remote configuration and policy management through a single, intuitive console.

 The Wyse 3040 thin client is compatible with all of the major virtualization software brokers including Citrix XenDesktop, Microsoft RDS, and VMware Horizon.

In addition to the already supported Citrix HDX, Microsoft RDP, and PCoIP protocols, Wyse 3040 will also support VMware Blast Extreme remote protocol starting June 2017.

The Wyse 3040 thin client retails for $440.
