About the CWS Zero Client Solutions by Zella Technologies LLC:
zClient: Streamlines the connection between the user’s desk and their Cloud Workspace®. Designed for desktop PC replacement, the zClient allows users to place the small sized unit on their desk, connect their peripherals, power on and connect directly to the user’s Cloud Workspace® by simply entering their username & password. Configuration is not required.
zOS: The zClient operating system was developed for simple connectivity to users’ workspace environments and supports dual monitors, audio playback and recording, high-definition video and ThinPrint. Utilizing the CWS API, zOS configures the user’s gateway and server within seconds of entering their username. zOS is centrally managed by its cloud-based control panel, zManage, which installs patches and updates automatically with no interaction from the end user.
zManage: zManage is the centralized cloud based control panel for zClient and zOS. This control panel gives Cloud Workspace master partners full control over their zClient devices and zOS licenses.
Within zManage, master partners are able to order zClient devices, order zOS licenses, create sub-partners and/or client profiles with the ability to assign a zClient device and/or zOS license to a specific partner/client.
“IT service providers with an understanding of WaaS/DaaS solutions will quickly realize the benefits that zClient, zOS, and zManage provide to CWS users,” said Seth Bostock, CEO, IndependenceIT. “In conjunction with our workspace automation software, Zella Technologies’ zero client solutions provide innovative options for connectivity to help users go beyond the limits of their office. We welcome the company as a technology development partner as the demand for these solutions intensifies.”

The Zella Technologies’ solution is available immediately and offers two purchasing options. Master partners can acquire the zClient device outright or take advantage of the company’s Hardware-as-a-Service, where master partners pay a monthly fee for the device.
