LONDON, March 24 /PRNewswire/ — Wyse Technology, the global leader in thin computing, today announced that its V10L thin client has been awarded Best New Green IT Product Award by an Established Vendor at the European Green IT Summit.
The award recognises the product's design in minimising environmental impact through reduced energy consumption, demonstrable consideration of the environment in the product's design, and its cost effectiveness. Wyse was one of five finalists, which included Fujitsu Siemens, Active Power, Extreme Networks, and Juniper Networks, who were judged on credible green claims, environmental advantages over competitors, and the incorporation of environmental considerations in the design process.
"Wyse Technology's V10L thin client reverses the misconception that IT is a liability in terms of its impact on the environment," said Jonathan Steele, one of the judges and CEO of Analyst house the Bathwick Group. "The award win last night is testament to Wyse Technology's dedication to greener, more environmentally-friendly computing."
The New Green IT Product category acknowledges solutions that are designed to move Green technology forward. The Wyse V10L thin client was recognised as a powerful alternative to the traditional, energy-hungry PC. While a PC consumes between 70-150 watts of power, the V10L uses only 14.1 watts. Wyse also offers desktop and mobile thin computers that use as little as 6.6 watts in full operation, near that of the energy used by a single Christmas tree light bulb. Additionally, with a lifespan is 5-7 years, the V10L's product lifespan is 2-3 times longer than that of a PC, and guards against technological obsolescence and e-waste.
In addition, a recent Forrester Research report stated that, "firms have found that using thin clients in low-intensity, standard desktop hardware environments generates savings. Many factors contribute to this increased cost-effectiveness: extended hardware life cycles, lower power consumption, and the lower ratio of staff needed to manage, secure, and service a thin client environment."*
Tarkan Maner, CEO and President of Wyse Technology, comments, "The competition was extremely tough, so it is rewarding to see Wyse continue to maintain its position at the forefront of developments in green computing. With our partners Citrix, Microsoft, and VMware, Wyse thin computing delivers the productivity people need at a lower cost to the environment than traditional methods, without compromising security or manageability."
