Dell announced the availability of Dell Wyse Cloud Connect, an ultra-compact and highly mobile cloud access device that instantly delivers desktop virtualization and personal cloud services to any HDMI- or MHL-enabled display. The pocket-size device delivers a full-HD experience with enterprise-level security, manageability and reliability. Organizations of any size can now deliver streaming cloud services and IT solutions in a cost-effective, mobile offering for work, home and on the go.
“Dell Wyse Cloud Connect is the best mobile thin client solution we have tested at our labs. It works seamlessly with Citrix, Microsoft and VMware environments,” said Joseph Korah, Senior Director and Center Head-Kochi at Cognizant Technology. “I believe that Dell has hit upon a sweet spot for the futuristic enterprise that is looking for ways to improve productivity at work and on the go for its Enterprise Workforce.”
”IT organizations want to be able to deliver a rich user experience through cost-effective and reliable devices without sacrificing security and manageability,” said Bob O’Donnell, Founder and Chief Analyst at TECHnalysis Research. “At the same time, many end users want an easy, simple way to get access to their corporate applications and data wherever they happen to be. Cloud Connect is an innovative solution to address these customer needs.”
“Dell Wyse Cloud Connect is very compact, merely the size of a wireless network card, but it is powerful enough to project a virtual desktop on any TV screen with a HDMI or MHL controller, using any ordinary tablet or mobile device,” said Wang Jing, General Manager of New Energy Division, State Grid Information & Telecommunication Company Ltd., State Grid Electric Power Research Institute, China. “We find this extremely useful in our delivery of refined product terminals. Moreover, we are now using Cloud Connect as an entrance portal to support our various projects, especially those around which we are researching methods such as tracing end-data queries to ensure product quality, displaying our new products at user terminals, etc.”
Santosh Pandey, Country Manager, Dell India said, “Cloud Connect brings together the key elements that our customers wish for in their Wyse computing devices – functionality and portability. A technology solution with enterprise-level security and highly optimized cloud-client, Cloud Connect allows users to create an extension of their workplace virtually anywhere. At Dell, we strive to innovate and deliver technology which supports and reinforces the BYOD trend that is transforming the workforce. Cloud Connect is one such innovation, compatible with our existing Wyse products and software to maximize the thin client computing experience.”
