Dell is thrilled to once again be attending VMworld, one of the highlights of the conference season. This year, we are pleased to be supporting the event as a Diamond Sponsor and will be in San Francisco from Aug 24-28 to showcase our end-to-end offerings to support you in your technology journey. So keep a look-out for a broad range of new innovative IT solutions and don’t forget to visit our booth #1417 to find out how our data center, virtualization and cloud offerings can help enhance your business productivity and efficiency!

One of the key highlights includes the Dell Wyse Datacenter for VMware Horizon View and Dell Wyse Datacenter for VMware Horizon DaaS. Whereas the former provides increased user densities and 3D graphic capabilities within a secure and scalable environment, the latter is a cost-effective, scalable offering for small- to mid-sized businesses. You will also get a chance to explore our other data center solutions including Dell Wyse 3000 dual core thin client with Windows Embedded 7 and Dell Wyse 5000 series all-in-one thin client.

Other innovative solutions on display include a preview of our new Dell Foglight for Virtualization, Enterprise Edition 8.0 software, with multiple new end-to-end capabilities to visualize, analyze and optimize performance, workflow and plan for growth across heterogeneous virtual infrastructure environments. Our software experts at the conference can also help you navigate through the new    Dell Backup & Disaster Recovery Suite (includes AppAssure, NetVault Backup and vRanger) which helps businesses achieve maximum ROI by utilizing the backup and recovery capabilities they need, when and where they need them.

In addition, don’t miss the two joint sessions on Virtual Volumes (VVols) by Dell and VMWare. We are excited to announce support for VVols to help you with streamlined management, monitoring and data protection in virtualized environments. The support for Dell Storage PS series (EqualLogic) will be available at VVols launch and soon followed by that for SC Series (Compellent) to provide truly VM-aware storage, enabling management and data services at the VM-level instead of the volume level.

Last but not least, we are also hosting multiple sessions and participating in panels through the week. So refer to the schedule below and mark your calendars now to ensure that your participation in these great discussions!
