Dell to deliver first thin clients for Windows 10 IoT Enterprise

As Microsoft gears up to launch Windows 10 on 29 July, its hardware partners are busy readying their own products that will support the new operating system. Last month, at Computex, a range of new Windows 10 business and consumer devices were unveiled, and now Dell has confirmed it will be delivering the first Windows 10 IoT Enterprise thin clients on the market.

Dell has said that the thin clients will ship on 29 July. Both models – the Wyse 7000 and 5000 series – are the company’s most powerful thin clients yet.

Designed for knowledge workers across a range of industries, including retail, healthcare, government, finance and education, they have quad-core AMD G-Series processors and the latest in security software.

The models also offer flexible management and simple administration for a variety of different use cases, including ‘hands off’ file server – where an endpoint is configured with an IP address and a gateway. Larger businesses, or those with thousands of endpoints, can use Wyse Device Manager software, or Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager instead.

Dell is also releasing a new version of its Wyse vWorkspace desktop virtualization software to help service providers deploy and run desktop virtualisation with Microsoft technologies. Available from 31 July, Wyse vWorkspace 8.6 supports the Microsoft Hyper-V and Azure platforms, as well as Windows 10-based virtual machines.

According to Dell, vWorkspace 8.6 lowers the cost of hosting Windows remote applications on Microsoft Azure by up to 67% a day. Service providers can power on/off and manage remote desktop sessions on Microsoft Azure, reducing costs by powering down unused sessions within the public cloud.
