Simple, secure workforce flexibility
Simplify the process of maintaining, distributing and patching applications, as well as reducing desktop management labor and staffing cost with a client virtualization solution from Dell. We can provide you with a consistent and centrally managed desktop environment by running the client desktop or virtual machine on a virtualized solution stack that’s using virtualization software. This transfers the virtual desktop workload from the device (thin client, smartphone, tablets, laptops and so on) to the managed infrastructure and allows users to seamlessly access their regular desktops from inexpensive low-end, thin-client or shared machines.
All client virtualization solutions are not created equal. Dell brings a unique combination of expertise, analysis, resource and experience to the table. You can choose how much — or how little — you want to manage, and we'll help you create the right balance of workforce flexibility, application support, data security and economies of scale to respond to market demand, wherever it is. For small and midsize businesses, a great option is the DVS Simplified Appliance, which delivers traditional desktop virtualization in an all-in-one VDI appliance package that’s easy to deploy and operate.
When you virtualize with Dell, you increase operating efficiency, user performance and cost control. We work with software virtualization leaders, including VMware®, Microsoft® and Citrix® to drive the evolution of client virtualization. Plus, our consistent use of best practices, along with innovative upgrades in technology, tools, processes and security makes you more effective at delivering business outcomes.

Microsoft® offers customers a great deal of flexibility when choosing the client virtualization solution that is right for their business. Whether deploying a traditional Remote Desktop Session (formerly Terminal Services), virtualized applications with App-V or a complete hosted virtual desktop running on Hyper-V™ Server 2008 R2, Microsoft and Dell provide a stable, secure and cost-conscious platform.
Balancing data security and mobility productivity is an ongoing challenge. We understand your employees need the freedom to work remotely using laptops, smartphones and other devices. Our strategic partnership with Citrix® delivers secure, on-demand virtualization solutions that enable your workforce to be more mobile and productive. Citrix XenDesktop™ transforms Windows® desktops into an on-demand service that can be accessed by any user on any device, anywhere.
Dell and VMware® team up to offer you a simplified, automated solution for desktop delivery and management.

Unlike other desktop virtualization products, VMware View™ is built on vSphere™, an industry leading virtualization platform that allows you to extend the value of VMware infrastructure and features such as high availability, disaster recovery and business continuity.
