Today Dell completed the acquisition of Wyse Technology (see Jeff Clarke’s Direct2Dell post for more details), the global leader in cloud client computing. With the addition of Wyse, Dell assumes the No. 1 position in cloud client computing and thin clients. Coupled with Dell’s strength in PC and enterprise computing, Wyse’s leadership in desktop virtualization cements the transformation of Dell into a true end-to-end enterprise solutions provider.
The combination of the Wyse solution portfolio with current Dell end user computing solutions significantly advances the Dell strategy to provide solutions to customers that enable them to do more. Wyse’s assets will add to Dell’s existing desktop virtualization offerings, Desktop Virtualization Solution Simplified and Desktop Virtualization Solution Enterprise and the recent Desktop as a Service (DaaS) partnership with Desktone.
Dell cloud client computing solutions play a critical role in enabling Dell Desktop Virtualization Solutions (DVS). The innovative DVS approach integrates Dell servers, networking, storage, and services with the Dell Wyse hardware and software portfolio, and seamlessly partners with industry-leading virtualization organizations like Citrix, VMware, and Microsoft to deliver complete end to end solutions- from the device to the datacenter to the cloud. So, whether customers want to compute on devices or virtually, they now have a choice and multiple purchase paths when they choose Dell.
The Dell Wyse solution portfolio includes industry-leading thin, zero and cloud client computing solutions with advanced management, desktop virtualization and cloud software supporting desktops, laptops and next generation mobile devices. Dell Wyse has more than 180 patents, both issued and pending, covering its solutions, software and differentiated intellectual property.
The Dell Wyse portfolio of cloud client computing hardware and software allow Dell to deliver true IT simplicity with the ultimate user experience- offering secure access for any user, using any app, on any device. Dell is walking the talk. Focus on the customer, deliver the right solutions and lead the space.
