Dell reveals hyper-converged portfolio expansion at Citrix Summit 2017

12 Jan 17

Over 4000 Citrix staff, partners and vendors have gathered at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California this week for the annual Citrix Summit.

At the conference, Dell revealed that it is expanding its hyper-converged infrastructure portfolio for VDI with a Dell EMC VxRail Appliance V Series solution for Citrix XenDesktop.

This solution, according to Dell, highlights its commitment to accelerating the adoption of virtual desktop infrastructure across a vast range of use cases.

It includes flexibility and scale, simplified management and discrete GPU capabilities.

“Organizations today have a variety of profiles within their IT environment from the task worker to the power user, and are looking for solutions that can address these needs without adding cost and complexity,” says Steve Lalla, senior vice president, Dell Commercial Client Software & Solutions.

“The Dell EMC VxRail Appliance solution for Citrix XenDesktop for VDI is easy to deploy and manage, yet offers higher performance and flexibility for multiple use cases.”

For customers looking for a hyper-converged infrastructure solution specifically designed for VDI, the VxRail is only the second in Dell’s portfolio.

Last November, Dell also announced that its cloud client-computing customers now have more flexibility in how and where they deploy thin client solutions within their Citrix environments.

Dell says many of its customers use Wyse Xenith clients in their Citrix environments today, and this gives them the ability to seamlessly deploy next-generation ThinOS-based thin clients into their existing Xenith infrastructures.
