Challenge
VGC wanted to create a more flexible work environment to help reduce costs, enhance efficiency and protect the work/life balance of its staff.
Solution
The authority created a virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI), built on Dell EqualLogic storage and Dell PowerEdge servers powered by Intel® Xeon® processors running VMware® software. It rolled out Dell Wyse zero clients across its central office and chose Dell ProSupport to protect its investment.
