Accelerate VDI Success

Desktop Virtualisaton

Dell ensures desktop virtualisation project success with advanced integration

Enterprise desktop environments offer a compelling alternative to physical desktops. Desktop virtualisation (VDI) has the potential to simplify operations and get client assets under control through a fundamental paradigm change: instead of managing physical desktops and hardware devices in various locations, administrators can consolidate enterprise desktops in the datacenter and realize substantial total cost of ownership (TCO) savings. Architecting a flexible, scalable enterprise storage platform is key for your VDI project success.

Dell™ storage helps customers reduce the cost and complexity of deploying VDI. Dell’s industry-leading portfolio of highly scalable, integrated and optimized shared storage solutions for VDI can help enterprises of all sizes extend the efficiencies of virtualisation to the desktop. Dell works closely with Citrix® and VMware® View™, the leading desktop virtualisation software vendors, to streamline deployments.
