The company claims the virtualisation software will enhance the Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) on Windows XP Professional and Windows Vista for VMware View.
Wyse Technology said VMware View includes a number of products to give end users a single view of all its applications and data – dubbed ‘myview’.
According to Curt Schwebke, chief technology officer, Wyse Technology, the
agreement is great news for virtual desktop users sitting in front of any thin client, notebook or personal computer.
“Once the integration of Wyse components with VMware View becomes available, end users running VMware View will be able to use multimedia applications in their virtual desktop on multiple clients with greater richness and impact, yet with lower overhead on the server,” he said.
Schwebke believes as more customers begin to deploy VMware View they will replace conventional PCs with virtualised desktops.
Jeff Jennings, vice president of desktop products and solutions, VMware, claims Wyse’s software increases the need for virtualised desktops for customers who want a better user experience, such as traders in banks, doctors and nurses in hospitals, and students and teachers.
As part of VMware’s vClient initiative, VMware View is expected to support protocols from HP and Sun.
