Dell Inc. has unveiled a new entry-level client solution compatible with virtual environments.
The Wyse 3040 is the company’s “lightest, smallest and most power-efficient thin client” that is meant for multitasking within virtual workspace environments.
Weighing just 0.24 kg (0.53 lbs), the device is the first of its kind to feature an Intel Atom X5 1.44GHz quad-core processor that supports “up to 2GB DDR3 RAM and 8GB flash.”
It is compatible with all major virtualization software, including Citrix XenDesktop, Microsoft RDS and VMware Horizon. It also supports Citrix HDX, Microsoft RDP and PCoIP protocols, and started supporting VMware Blast Extreme remote protocol starting in June 2017.
“Our customers are looking for that ideal blend of security, performance, energy efficiency and price,” Steve Lalla, senior vice president of commercial client software and solutions at Dell, says in a press release on Mar. 28. “The new Wyse 3040 thin client – the smallest and most efficient thin client – exceeds expectations of what an entry-level thin client can do.”
