Citrix, Dell Team Up For New VDI Virtualization Appliance

[Techtaffy Newsdesk]

Citrix Systems has teamed with Dell to deliver a new VDI appliance. The integrated hardware VDI appliance is pre-certified to support defined numbers of desktops, and based on the VDI-in-a-Box grid architecture running on Dell servers.

The Dell DVS Simplified VDI appliance can be installed to create and rapidly scale a virtual desktop deployment. There is no need to determine how much disk, CPU and RAM to use. Users can simply unpack the box, power it on and go. The VDI appliance is also backed by a full Citrix Ready verified ecosystem.

Krishna Subramanian ( Vice president, Marketing & Business Development, SMB Solutions, Citrix): Our relationship with Dell and the new integrated VDI appliance is aimed at making the transition to the cloud a no-brainer for our mutual customers, ultimately breaking down the barriers to VDI adoption.

The Dell DVS Simplified solution with Citrix VDI-in-a-Box is will be sold through Dell’s global sales team and channels.
