In today’s digital era, businesses are embracing Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) and endpoint management solutions to power their hybrid workforce. With VDI, businesses can centralize desktop environments on a server, enabling seamless, secure and feature-rich access from any device, anywhere.

This translates into streamlined IT management, heightened productivity, long-term cost savings, robust data security and enhanced disaster recovery. In this blog post, we’ll explore how Dell’s cutting-edge components and solutions revolutionize end-to-end VDI and endpoint management, empowering organizations of all sizes to establish and manage virtual desktop environments effortlessly.

Dell’s Comprehensive VDI Solutions

With a broad portfolio of servers (Dell PowerEdge servers), hyper-converged infrastructure (Dell VxRail HCI), network components and storage solutions, Dell can provide the essential components to implement scalable and high-performance VDI environments for organizations of all sizes. By harmonizing top-tier hardware with sophisticated VDI software from providers such as Citrix (Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops), VMware (VMware Horizon) and Microsoft Azure Virtual Desktops (AVD), Dell empowers organizations to deploy scalable, secure, and high-performing virtual desktop environments.

To elevate traditional VDI offerings and make it easier for organizations to manage their infrastructure, the Dell APEX Private Cloud solution provides an on-premises cloud experience for VMware workloads in data centers and edge locations. This solution offers scalable computing, storage, networking resources and predictable monthly pricing through one- to five-year subscriptions.

Dell Optimized Endpoints for VDI

While VDI enables employees to access their desktop from any device, Dell-optimized thin client solutions ensure efficient access to VDI environments. Dell’s Cloud Client Workspace portfolio includes thin client software options consisting of Dell ThinOSDell Hybrid Client and Windows 10 IoT Enterprise, available to pair with desktops, all-in-ones, laptops and workstation systems, all managed by Wyse Management Suite.

Boost VDI Adoption with Dell’s Financial Advantages

Setting up a VDI environment can be challenging for IT leaders, as it involves complexity, balancing current needs with future growth and ongoing maintenance and management. Through the APEX portfolio and flexible financing options, Dell enables businesses to adopt VDI solutions without straining their budgets and making significant upfront capital investments. Dell APEX for VDI allows businesses to reduce the complexity of VDI by having a customized virtual desktop environment, easily scaling resources to meet changing business needs and receiving the advantages of a cloud-based VDI.

Users can enjoy even more financial flexibility through Dell APEX PC-as-a-Service (PCAAS), which allows businesses to choose hardware, peripherals and services with flexible terms and monthly payments. Dell provides various lifecycle solutions for these endpoints. By partnering with Dell, businesses can accelerate their end-to-end VDI deployments, reduce financial barriers and achieve a faster return on investment.

Dell’s powerful server and storage product portfolio, customer-centric endpoints, simplified endpoint management and Dell APEX create a seamless ecosystem that simplifies VDI implementation and management.

Dell’s VDI solutions are highly adaptable, making them suitable for a wide range of business settings and verticals. They cater to everyone from small-scale companies to major organizations. See how a Texas city government saved $800,000 in recurring hardware-refresh costs with VDI.
