Wyse ties with Rise in cloudy client clinch

Dell and FastHosts by another name

Wyse Technology has struck a deal to push cloud services through the UK channel along with hosted services provider Rise.

The firms said Wyse partners will be able to tout cloud-based applications as managed services based on Rise's DataCenter on Demand offering – which naturally would be accessed via Wyse's client hardware or software platforms.

Meanwhile, Rise's partners will be offered the opportunity to become Wyse partners, pushing both the vendor's kit and software solutions.

Or put another way, a subsidiary of Texas-based Dell has struck a deal with an arm of Gloucester and Oregon-based FastHosts.

Which might have been less of a tongue-twister than bringing Wyse and Rise together in the same sentence, and less of a logic leap than Dell using resellers to push the concept of using less and less client hardware. ®
