Wyse is a server client focused on "cloud computing." Wyse servers use special software to share the overall server load across computers all over the world. Cloud computing allows thousands of consumer-level computers to connect to a single server or database to combine storage space and computing power. In order for Wyse servers to function with maximum efficiency, they need to be regularly updated to the most recent revision of the Wyse firmware. While this process used to be somewhat gruelling, the makers of Wyse have released a simple-to-use USB tool that can automate the process.
