Carahsoft Technology Corp., the trusted government IT solutions provider, and Wyse Technology, the global leader in cloud client computing, today announced a partnership through which the companies will make Wyse’s industry-leading thin and zero client computing-based desktop virtualization software, hardware and services available to the public sector.
"With the addition of Wyse’s product to our virtualization offerings, we will provide a full end-to-end desktop virtualization solution supporting VMware and its PC-over-IP display protocol,” said Craig P. Abod, President of Carahsoft, which also serves as the master government aggregator for VMware. "This combined solution eliminates the need for desktop workstations and PCs, allowing our government customers and our reseller partners to realize the benefits of truly flexible and secure desktop computing for any user and from any location."
Wyse cloud client computing hardware, software and services make it easier for IT departments to manage, update, and service desktops from a central location, while providing access to the applications and information people need, without requiring the desktop systems to store them. Wyse thin and zero clients are compatible with VMware Desktop Virtualization. As the first thin and zero clients to support the virtualized desktop model, they are designed for the most demanding rich media applications, including CAD/CAM, 3D solids modeling, video editing, advanced simulations, and rich media. Customers receive a true PC experience with a device the size of a book and consuming fewer than 15 watts of power.
"We are pleased to partner with Carahsoft and look forward to combining our public sector knowledge and solutions to deliver the best value to our customers,” said Gene Bonacci, Vice President, Global Strategic Sales at Wyse Technology. "As we continue to support growth in our Federal business with our existing US Distributors in 2010 and beyond, adding Carahsoft will give us the opportunity to increase our Federal and VMware mindshare, which will benefit everyone."
