Overview:

High-performance multimediaThe Wyse 5000 series thin client is a highly efficient and powerful endpoint platform for Citrix, Microsoft, VMware, and Wyse vWorkspace virtual desktop environments. It is available as a zero client, a diskless cloud desktop or a thin client with Windows Embedded Standard, Wyse-enhanced enterprise Linux, or virus-immune Wyse ThinOS. With its extremely compact size and high performance, it’s a versatile virtual desktop endpoint or cloud desktop when used with Wyse WSM software.

High-performance multimedia

Need to deploy a dependable platform to display, manipulate and work with high-definition multimedia, voice and video in a virtualized environment? With a choice of powerful, energy-saving dual or quad core AMD G Series APUs in a compact chassis with dual-HD monitor support, the 5000 series thin client delivers stunning performance and display capabilities across 2D, 3D and HD video applications. As such, it supports a broad and diverse range of user, application and operating requirements.

Highly scalable, easy to operate and manage

Highly scalable, easy to operate and manage

IT administrators won’t need to visit or touch cloud clients to manage them. The 5000 series thin client can be managed remotely with Wyse Device Manager (WDM). WDM lowers the total cost of ownership for large deployments and offers remote enterprise-wide management that scales as you grow from just a few to tens of thousands of cloud clients.

Environmentally conscious computing without compromise

When it comes to energy efficiency, the 5000 series outperforms other, more power-hungry desktop alternatives. Its silent diskless and fanless design helps reduce power usage to just a fraction of that used in traditional desktops. Dell is committed to helping you implement a computing strategy with a lower environmental impact — one that offers an efficient and productive computing experience by significantly reducing energy usage and heat generation.

Operating Systems - Microsoft Windows Embedded Standard 7

New Windows Embedded Standard 7 delivers a wealth of enhanced deployment, user experience and management benefits to Dell Wyse desktops, mobiles and thin clients deployed across an organization's virtualized network.

Rich user experience
Wherever they are – deskbound or mobile – with Microsoft Windows Embedded Standard 7 your users can benefit from the rich user experience of the Aero interface and the power, familiarity and reliability of the Windows 7 operating system in a highly customizable and componentized form.

Full support is provided for Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) 7.1 with RemoteFX technology to provide seamless connectivity to Windows Server 2008 R2 and virtual desktop infrastructure scenarios. The Dell Wyse-enhanced Windows Embedded Standard 7 platforms include additional features supporting the latest Citrix Online Plug-in and VMware View 4.6 to fit the needs of your most sophisticated users and making it an optimum OS for organizations wanting broad support for cloud computing and desktop virtualization. Citrix Online Plug-in provides the HDX user experience and View 4.6 provides localization and Virtual Printing.

The platform also features additional Windows technology innovations to drive rich, immersive user experiences, including Internet Explorer 8. There's full support and built-in flexibility too, to add and support a host of desktop peripherals with permission from the IT administrator.

In addition, all Dell Wyse Windows Embedded Standard 7 thin clients include support of Windows Embedded Device Manager, allowing the device to be managed by Microsoft's central management system for Windows-based devices, System Center Configuration Manager.

Easy to manage and deploy
Now, with Windows Embedded Standard 7, deploying 32-bit capable thin clients is easier and more manageable than ever before and reflects the direct working relationship between Dell Wyse and Microsoft. The support for Domain Join and group policies through Active Directory, help with management and integration of thin clients into existing desktop management infrastructures.

Dell Wyse Configuration Manager (WCM) offers unprecedented simplicity to the management of virtual desktops by allowing IT departments to auto-configure thin clients running Dell Wyseenhanced Windows Embedded Standard. By automating the deployment of Windows Embedded Standard thin clients throughout a private cloud WCM offers multiple benefits to organizations: reducing the need to do imaging, deploying custom images and fast configuration updates. Client devices are updated with the latest configuration settings for VDI connections (RDP, Citrix, VMware View), device settings and OS configuration automatically when devices startup.

Dell Wyse Device Manager (WDM) addresses key management requirements. With its centralized management and administration, WDM helps IT departments deliver effective remote thin client support while minimizing end user downtime. In addition, the Dell Wyse USB Firmware Tool allows IT and Customer Service staff to quickly and easily image the devices directly.

Windows Embedded Standard 7Enterprise-wide consistency
Windows Embedded Standard 7 and Dell Wyse provide the ideal, cost effective opportunity to deploy a consistent, high performance operating system across Dell Wyse cloud clients.

Features:

Designed to allow your users to flourish within ever changing and demanding desktop environments, the new Dell Wyse D class offers you new dimensions in computing performance, high definition multimedia and operational flexibility in a compact affordable form.

The D class' compact frame hosts an array of display, peripheral and network connectivity plus further flexible networking, storage and I/O options; everything in fact to offer you the ideal cloud client for Citrix, Microsoft and VMware VDI environments.

Dell Wyse Device Manager supports the D class with scalable enterprise-wide management. From fast 'day one' out-of-the-box deployment, to patching and updates and on to granular desktop device management – all with secure end-to-end encrypted communications.

When it comes to energy efficiency the D class is designed to out-perform other more power hungry desktop alternatives, including other thin clients in its class. Its silent, disk and fan-less design contributes considerably to lowering an organization's carbon footprint through power usage and emissions.

Presenting high performance on your desktop

Need to deploy a dependable platform to display, manipulate and work with high definition multimedia, voice and video in a virtualized environment? The D class' hardware acceleration engine and dual monitor support offers your users outstanding performance and display capabilities across 2D, 3D and HD video applications.

High performance processor family.
Driving the D class' high speed and performance are two powerful, energy saving processors that offer you a strong all around platform on which to support an increasingly diverse range of user, application and operating requirements: the AMD G-Series dual core T48E 1.4 GHz processor and quad core AMD G-Series SOC 1.5GHz.

Energy Conscientious

That's Dell Wyse EarthSmart computing.
With Dell Wyse D class and through our EarthSmart Computing initiative we are committed to helping organizations implement an energy efficient computing strategy – one that offers a more efficient and productive computing experience for your users with a positive effect on energy wastage, heat and carbon emissions.

Energy efficient.
D class cloud clients use 9 watts of power in typical use*. In comparison, a typical PC could use between 70 and 150 watts. Even in sleep mode D class units draw just 2 watts while being fully remotely managed. Then, when you include additional power requirements in the data center, a cloud computing deployment can offer significant power savings. Dell Wyse has implemented an ISO 14001-based environmental management system and WEEE recycling processes, and all Dell Wyse products meet stringent ROHS requirements.

* Average power usage with device connected to 1 keyboard with 1 PS/2 mouse and 1 monitor: Under 9 watts
