Dell Launches New Cloud Services for Citrix IT Environments; Steve Lalla Comments

DellLogoDell has developed cloud computing services intended to work with Citrix Systems' virtual desktops as organizations aim to provide employees secure access to corporate information from multiple devices.

The turnkey offerings aim to help clients that use Citrix XenDesktop and XenApp in their information technology environments, Dell said Wednesday.

Dell built the desktop virtualization offerings Active System 800, DVS Enterprise, Wyse Xenith Pro 2 zero client and Wyse and thin clients for Citrix-based IT infrastructures.

Steve Lalla, vice president and general manager for cloud client computing at Dell, said the new technologies aim to help users manage virtualized desktops.

Active System 800 for Citrix XenDesktop 7 is designed to consolidate Dell servers, storage, networking, endpoint devices and management software with a pre-integrated system.

The Active System Manager aims to help customers configure and deploy virtual desktops to end users from the physical to the virtualized infrastructure, Dell says.

NVIDIA Grid supports XenDesktop and its unified communications, providing three-dimensional graphics and visualization tasks through virtual desktops and applications.

Users access multimedia, graphics and applications from various platforms and devices hosted by IT departments through NVIDIA grid, Dell says.

The DVS enterprise integrated storage service extends desktop virtualization to more organizations without a storage area network, according to the company.

Dell's Wyse Xenith Pro 2 for dual-core zero client provides up to 300 megabytes per second connection speeds, content and dual digital display support, as well as Wyse Device Manager to support more than 100,000 devices.

Building on Windows Embedded, Dell Wyse D90Q7 and Z90Q7 for thin clients provides storage options, infrastructure security and support for multiple devices with the Wyse Device Manager.

Dell launched the cloud service offerings at the Citrix Synergy conference for cloud-based mobile solutions.
