Coming soon: DELL Wyse P25 and P45 Zero Client

without comments

Thanks ro @SimonLong_ for the tip on Twitter! DELL Wyse has a two new zero clients on their website – the P25 and the P45.

Both are Teradici Tera chip driven devices but they’re using different processor units. The P25 has a Teradici TERA2321 inside and the P45 a TERA2140. The other big difference between the two is the ability two connect four DVI displays to the P45 but only one to the P25.

Please feel free to download the fact sheet which includes the detailed information.

It’s fantastic to see that the P25 does use 8 Watt if one mouse, one keyboard and one monitor is connected. That’s really green.

Both clients are perfect for HD multimedia CAD/CAM and of course they’re both compatible with VMware View.

About PCoIP Technology

Teradici’s PCoIP protocol is an innovative remote display technology that allows the user’s desktop operating system, applications, and data to reside in the datacenter, eliminating the need for traditional desktop workstations, PCs and thin clients, and delivers an uncompromised user experience to each person, anywhere, over any network and to any type of device without incurring the security risks associated with having data reside in remote PCs, laptops, or tablets. PCoIP technology provides high resolution, full frame rate 3D graphics and high-definition media, with full USB peripheral interoperability, locally over a LAN or remotely over a high-latency WAN. It compresses, encrypts and encodes the entire computing experience at the datacenter and transmits it ‘pixels only’ across a standard IP network to secure, stateless PCoIP zero clients, thin clients, and mobile devices.

The PCoIP protocol is implemented in several software configurations, including VMware View™, the industry leading desktop virtualization platform as well as in silicon for hardware accelerated performance and enhanced security. A growing ecosystem of over 30 third-party vendors provide a wide variety of PCoIP products including server plug-in cards, rack and tower workstations, blade PCs, zero clients, integrated monitors, and IP phones with PCoIP capability.
