Japan's Leading Mobile Service Provider, Softbank Mobile Deploys Internal Private Cloud Infrastructure with Wyse Technology's Cloud Client Computing Hardware and Software Solutions.

SAN JOSE, Calif. & TOKYO -- Wyse Technology, the inventor and global leader in cloud client computing with its thin and zero client computing-centric desktop virtualization solutions, today announced the release of a case study in Japan illustrating the successful deployment of a Wyse solution by Softbank Mobile Corporation for its internal private cloud.

Softbank Mobile Corporation continues to be a pioneer in its field and is one of the core enterprises of Japan's 'Softbank Group'. In November 2008 the company relocated their Business Process Operations (BPO) overseas, setting up a 'shared center' under the name SoftBank PS (Dalian) Solution Service CO., Ltd. in Dalian, Northeast China.

The company-wide information security policy requires that "confidential information should not be held locally on user endpoints." To meet this requirement for greater control and security, the company adopted a thin computing solution using Wyse Technology's thin clients.

The clients selected by Softbank are based on Wyse ThinOS[TM], an ultra-thin software layer invented and specifically developed by Wyse Technology to power Wyse's industry-leading Thin Clients. Wyse ThinOS[TM] ensures flexible and secure user access as it is the only thin computing operating system without Windows or Linux APIs, delivering built in protection from viruses, malicious software and trojans developed by hackers.

Wyse ThinOS[TM] is the most optimized, management-free multi-protocol solution for Citrix XenApp, Citrix XenDesktop, Microsoft Terminal Services, Microsoft Server 2008 R2 Remote Desktop Services, and Microsoft VDI Suites, and VMware View virtual desktop environments. This ultra-thin operating firmware has a boot-up time of 6-10 seconds, and is a near-zero configuration solution, which requires no local setting or customization. This results in a tremendous reduction in the deployment and management costs compared to other generally available models. Wyse ThinOS[TM] with its laser-sharp ultra-thin footprint and architecture, allows secure client firmware updates to be completed in seconds. With all necessary functions configured within the firmware, Wyse thin clients significantly reduce TCO with highest user experience and flexibility.

Recently, Wyse also announced the Wyse Zero[TM], a groundbreaking new software technology to power Zero Clients as well as Thin and Handheld client devices to enable Cloud Computing infrastructures with a zero footprint architecture for ultra-high security, speed, management and lowest TCO.

Jun Matsura, Regional Manager of Wyse Technology KK, who has overseen this project says, "Softbank Mobile Corporation deployed Wyse thin clients as a virtual desktop environment, which is the most efficient and simple way to run a system. I'm delighted to hear that the deployment has been very successful and they haven't encountered any major problems. The cost of maintaining international networks is still a challenge and I hope that companies, who are looking into moving part of their business abroad, will refer to the Softbank Mobile case study as an example of how a thin client solution can be implemented between two countries successfully."

Yasuhiro Otsuka, General Manager of SoftBank PS (Dalian) Solution Service CO., Ltd. says, "This whole project has been experimental for our company. We had heard that with a thin computing solution we would be able to prioritize the security of our customer's personal information and I can say that we are very satisfied with this. We think that this is because we chose Wyse thin clients, which has a proven track record with many international businesses."
