Dell Selected by Department of Justice for One of the Largest VDI Deployments in the U.S. Government
Dell announced today it was awarded a contract for a Department of Justice unclassified virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) deployment. The $28 million partnership includes new Dell XC Series of Web-scale Converged Appliances, powered by Nutanix software, as well as Dell Networking and Dell AppAssure data protection software. Supporting up to 55,000 named users, specifically within the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the deal includes more than 600 Dell XC Series appliances and represents one of the largest VDI deployments the U.S. government has undertaken.
The foundation of this solution is the Dell XC Series appliances, hyper-converged systems that combine compute, storage and virtualization resources in one solution built on preconfigured, industry-leading Dell PowerEdge 13th generation servers. These appliances are integrated with industry-leading software from Nutanix, the hyper-converged market leader according to IDC.
“As a trusted technology provider to federal agencies for more than 20 years, Dell is committed to providing its government customers with the tools they need to solve complex problems with efficient and effective IT solutions,” said Steve Harris, vice president and general manager, Dell Federal. “We’re very excited to have the opportunity to help a key government customer better accomplish their mission, and we are always looking for any way we can work with customers like this to best leverage their IT.”
