SAN JOSE, Calif.: Today at Citrix Synergy 2010, the conference where virtualization, networking and cloud computing meet, Wyse Technology revealed the Wyse Zero™ engine. Wyse Zero™ is software that simplifies the development of cloud connected devices. Wyse Zero™, which connects users to cloud computing services and virtual desktops with efficient communications and protocol technology, is already in use in millions of devices, including thin clients, handheld smart devices, and zero clients. Specifically, the Wyse Zero™ engine is currently powering all devices that are utilizing Wyse ThinOS, all implementations of Wyse PocketCloud and — as of today — all Wyse Xenith™ devices.
Wyse Zero™; the Securest, Greenest and Fastest Cloud Firmware in the Industry Powers Thin, Zero and Handheld Clients
For current users of Wyse ThinOS, the highly optimized, management-free solution for Citrix XenApp, Citrix XenDesktop, Microsoft Terminal Server and VMware View virtual desktop environments, Wyse Zero™ ensures that every Wyse thin client delivers flexible and secure user access, boots-up in seconds, updates itself automatically, and delivers IT managers with simple, scalable administration to suit their organization’s needs; all while featuring an unpublished API that delivers built-in protection from viruses and malware.
For the thousands of users of Wyse PocketCloud on Apple’s iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, Wyse Zero™ functionality expands the end user browsing capability to include Adobe Flash support, for example, by intelligently using cloud resources.
Announced today in conjunction with Citrix Synergy 2010, Wyse Xenith™ will also capitalize on the Wyse Zero™ engine. This technology foundation completely eliminates the management and security issues associated with traditional clients, while ensuring a high-definition HDX user experience.

“For cloud computing to continue to take hold in the enterprise, OEMs require a software ingredient that simplifies the development of cloud connected devices; one with a lightweight footprint that can perform at the speed of business,” according to Curt Schwebke, Chief Technical Officer at Wyse. “Wyse Zero™ addresses the limitations with current embedded options and is already powering the next generation of smart devices connecting to the cloud to provide virtual desktop access.”
The Wyse Zero™ engine delivers several benefits:
- Rich – includes networking, management, and protocol technology
- Fast – does not require an underlying operating system, starts instantly, and provides a fast user experience
- Secure – no attack surface, so no vulnerability to virus and malware threats
- Green – lowest carbon footprint, energy efficient
