Wyse Cloud Client Computing Receives Readers' Choice Awards From Leading Education Publications(January 04, 2012)
SAN JOSE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/04/12 -- Wyse Technology, the global leader in cloud client computing, today announced that the Wyse Xenith zero client has been named a top technology product for K-12 educators by District Administration and eSchool News. For the second year in a row, a Wyse cloud client solution has been named to District Administration's annual Top 100 Products feature. The December 2011 issue of District Administration highlighted the Wyse Xenith zero client built for Citrix HDX. The Wyse Xenith also received the same recognition in eSchool News Readers' Choice awards appearing in the January 2012 edition.
As education budgets are dwindling and human resources are scarce, schools and universities all over the world are looking for better and more efficient ways to manage their computing resources and rid themselves of the security, sustainability and manageability problems of personal computers. Wyse's complete line of cloud client and virtualization solutions have become the secret weapon in network administrators' arsenal for creating a computing infrastructure with a lower total cost of ownership, improved reliability, simplified management, and enhanced security.
Steve Bradley with Rocklin Unified School District in California comments on the benefits of the Wyse Xenith. "As Network Administrator for a school district that has more than 11,500 students spread out across 17 schools, having a computer infrastructure that is easy to maintain and sustainable is key. We use Wyse Xenith zero clients instead of PCs because they don't have hard drives that will inevitably fail. Before installing Wyse Xenith zero clients in our labs and classrooms, I typically paid about $1,500 for a full-featured desktop computer. Wyse Xenith zero clients cost less than $400, will last us longer than PCs and provide our students and teachers with the enterprise-caliber performance they need. As we continue to update our computer infrastructure across the district, we will be turning to Wyse Xenith to replace PCs."
