Thin client vendor Wyse Technology has struck a strategic alliance with Sun Microsystems to deliver end-to-end thin computing solutions. The two vendors plan to jointly market solutions based on Wyse thin clients and Sun’s secure global desktop software. Wyse claims that the collaboration with Sun will offer enterprise customers broad access to industry leading thin computing solutions, comprising thin clients, server and software infrastructure and services. Wyse and Sun plan to work together on channel partner programmes, co-marketing initiatives, customer engagements and joint engineering projects. “By combining market and engineering leadership from Wyse and Sun, customers will benefit from the seamless integration of best-of-breed technology that will ultimately deliver virtually unmatched security, performance, reliability and manageability,” said John Kish, president and CEO at Wyse Technology. “Both companies are committed to driving more and more intelligence into the network and simplifying complexity at the edge. Thin computing solutions leveraging Wyse solutions at the edge and Sun infrastructure represent a very powerful solution for the market, helping customers to purchase and easily deploy integrated, end to end solutions.” he added. “With our secure global desktop software and Solaris 10, Sun is delivering the most advanced infrastructure on the planet for the secure delivery of applications to client devices in heterogeneous environments,” said John Loiacono, executive VP of software at Sun. “Our agreement with Wyse, the global leader in thin computing, expands the market for thin client solutions and reaffirms our assertion that the network is the computer.” Wyse plans to bundle Sun’s secure global desktop client software on its S and V class thin clients across three operating systems: Linux, Windows CE and Windows XPe. The end-to-end solution, including Sun Fire X2100 and X4200 servers powered by AMD Opteron processors will be made available through Sun and Wyse joint channel partners.
