Wyse has officially released Wyse Configuration Manager, a management platform designed to automatically configure and update Wyse thin clients, easing the management burden in virtual desktop environments.
Announced earlier this year as a preview version dubbed Project Pyramid, Wyse Configuration Manager automatically updates client devices to the latest configuration specified by the IT department, either at power up or the next time a user logs on.
Initially, Wyse Configuration Manager operates only with devices based on Windows Embedded Standard 7, but Wyse said that it will extend this to offer automatic management across all of its thin clients, including those running ThinOS and Linux.
According to Wyse, Configuration Manager will lower administration costs by cutting the time IT departments spend creating and deploying system images to update endpoint settings, such as virtual desktop host connections or keyboard and display configuration.
"Being able to centrally and automatically deploy multiple thin client types, including those based on Microsoft's new Windows Embedded Standard 7 platform, is one of the industry's first, and we are extremely proud to bring this product to market," said Wyse director of product management Param Desai.
As well as Wyse Configuration Manager itself, the firm released the Wyse Feature Release 2 update for devices based on Windows Embedded Standard 7, which adds firmware support for the new management tool as well as improving performance, and brings key new capabilities such as support for Microsoft's RemoteFX display protocol.
Wyse Configuration Manager 1.0 is a free upgrade for all Wyse customers already operating devices with Windows Embedded Standard 7, the firm said. Support for Windows Embedded Standard 2009 is set to be available later this year.
