Dell has expanded the scope of the Dell DVS Simplified Appliance by developing its next generation appliance running the latest Citrix VDI-in-a-Box V5.1 software. The DVS Simplified Appliance gets you from zero to VDI much faster than anything else. There is no guess work as to what size server you need because customers can purchase servers that are pre-certified to run a specific number of desktops. Need more than what a server can provide? Just buy another server and add it to the grid. The new DVS Simplified Appliance provides personalization where each user can install and run their own applications and yet the administrator can continue to update the base operating system image. Finally, the end user can fully customize their own desktops while the base operating system is managed and maintained by the administrator. For the administrator, there is no image sprawl. One image supports a large variety of needs. It’s really like having your cake and eating it too!
The new Dell DVS Simplified Appliance will also come in smaller sizes and a wider array of packages. For instance, the appliance will now be available in a tower configuration. This is ideal for small and remote offices that have small computer closets and don’t have the need for racks. DVS Simplified Appliance can now be purchased in a smaller size of just 50 desktops making it even easier and more cost effective to get started. And due to the early success, Dell has extended the availability of their popular bundle consisting of a Dell/Wyse thin client, a Dell server, the VDI-in-a-Box software and 3 years of support for less than $500 per user! So instead of spending time justifying the return on investment (ROI) for VDI, why not just buy a DVS Simplified Appliance with Citrix VDI-in-a-Box and show them?
