With Dell Cloud Desktops, configured to be stateless and diskless, the capabilities of the OptiPlex 3011 can be shared to a number of virtual users in an extremely secure environment with centralized management and storage, while delivering the same look, performance, feel and function of a traditional desktop with an OS.
