Dell Offers Lync and Skype for Businesses

Also Introduces VDI Solution To Deploy Citrix Xendesktop In Less Than Two Hours

Dell unveiled two new additions to its cloud client-computing portfolio to optimize communication productivity for new and existing thin client users and make it easier, faster, and more cost-effective to deploy and run Citrix environments. Dell unveiled Wyse ThinOS 8.2, the latest release of its highly secure thin client software, which now offers Lync 2010, Lync 2013 and the Skype for Business client for Lync 2015 (UI mode) via the Citrix HDX RealTime Optimization Pack. Dell also released a new version of its innovative Dell Appliance for Wyse – Citrix, a virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) appliance which simplifies and merges the server, storage and networking components required to deploy a Citrix environment into an easy-to-buy 2U module that starts small and provides scale-out capabilities for up to 5,000 users with Citrix XenDesktop.

These solutions highlight Dell’s commitment to accelerate the adoption of virtual desktop infrastructure across a vast range of use cases, making VDI an increasingly attractive option for organizations of all sizes, including smaller businesses, to deploy and manage throughout their Citrix architectures. Both solutions will be showcased in Dell booth #205 at Citrix Summit 2016 and are available through Dell or through Dell PartnerDirect partners.
Steve Lalla, VP, Commercial Client Software and Solutions, Dell, said, “Dell is committed to continued innovation in the desktop cloud delivery space. Enhancements to our client products as well as providing more solutions for faster and easier deployment of the data center is critical as VDI gains momentum. Specifically, customers using our leading ThinOS software can now support unified communications efficiently in partnership with Citrix. This is complemented by enhancements to our appliance offerings, making VDI deployment with Citrix easier and more cost effective than ever.”

Calvin Hsu, VP Product Marketing, Windows App Delivery, Citrix, added, “With offerings like the Dell Appliance for Wyse – Citrix and ThinOS 8.2 for Wyse thin clients, Dell continues to expand the reach of desktop virtualization to small and medium-sized organizations that are starting small and scaling fast, up to 5,000 users with a single appliance architecture with Citrix XenDesktop. These new solutions from Dell enable organizations to grow their business and reap the security and productivity benefits of Citrix VDI while controlling costs.”
