Dell Cloud Client Computing and Citrix XenDesktop 7

Even since Project Avalon was announced in May 2012 at Synergy San Francisco, BYOD, management, and graphic-intensive workloads have emerged as critical aspects of desktop virtualization deployments.

At Dell Cloud Client Computing, we are committed to improving the desktop virtualization experience and we work to deliver these critical capabilities customers want most. The improved high-definition Citrix HDX technology in the newly announced Citrix XenDesktop 7 addresses the challenge inherent in using full versions of Windows applications on mobile devices. And, with the integration of Citrix Unified Storefront, users can access both their apps and their workplace desktops seamlessly.

XenDesktop 7 is built on the new Citrix FlexCast architecture that enables cloud-style simplicity, automation and scale for apps, virtual desktops and Remote Desktop Services (RDS). XenDesktop 7 also supports graphic-intensive apps by leveraging hardware acceleration technologies including GPU pass-through and HDX 3D.

Citrix and Dell are working together to help organizations become more productive, bringing innovation and customer insights into our cost effective, easy to deploy and manage solutions.

Dell Cloud Client Computing offers a proven end-to-end approach that incorporates data center components, services, software, and the most powerful Dell Wyse cloud clients available today. All Cloud Client Computing components will support XenDesktop 7. Dell will be among the first Citrix Ready partners to integrate XenDesktop 7, benefiting our Citrix customers and their ROI.

Dell Cloud Client Computing will continue to evolve and lead the charge into the next-generation of end-user computing, giving your organization and your users the power to do more.
