Designed for efficiency with 30 percent better performance than previous generations
Dell unveils the lightest, smallest and most power-efficient thin client that offers superb performance and manageability for task and basic productivity users. Compatible with Citrix, Microsoft and VMware virtual workspace environments, the Wyse 3040 thin client provides a cost-effective endpoint solution that is highly secure, yet easy to deploy and manage. It is the industry’s first entry-level Intel x86-based quad-core thin client, delivering robust connectivity options and a choice of Wyse ThinOS or ThinLinux operating systems.
“Our customers are looking for that ideal blend of security, performance, energy efficiency and price,” said Steve Lalla, Senior VP, Commercial Client Software & Solutions, 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.”
With a new slim line form factor starting at just 0.24kg, the Wyse 3040 is the first entry-level thin client to feature an Intel Atom X5 1.44GHz quad-core processor that supports up to 2GB DDR3 RAM and 8GB flash. Designed for efficiency, the Wyse 3040 delivers 30 percent better performance than previous generations, making it ideal for light multimedia use and local application activity. With its small size, it’s also easy to mount on the back of a monitor for a clean, de-cluttered workspace.
Further, the thin client 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.
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), wired and wireless 802.11ac options, and four USB ports – one of which is USB 3.1 Gen 1 for high-speed connectivity.
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.
Priced at US$329, the Wyse 3040 thin client with Wyse ThinOS is now available globally.
