New Offerings from Dell Announced at Citrix Summit ’16

Several cool announcements from Dell yesterday at Citrix Summit ’16 in the world of VDI Solutions and VDI related products.

  • New release of Dell Wyse ThinOS (WTOS), v.8.2 which now supports IM based products much better by leveraging the Citrix HDX RealTim Optimization Pack inside the WTOS image for Lync 2010, 2013 & Skype for Business 2015.  Think of it as a bit of a “merge” of the traditional “full client features” of WTOS with the Citrix “special touches” from the Wyse Xenith OS.  Should be fun to see in action soon!
  • Updated version of the Dell Appliance for Wyse – Citrix, which allows you to buy Dell 13G server hardware & deploy a scalable XenDesktop environment via the Dell Quick Start Tool (QST).  This continues Dell’s recent push for simpler deployment of complex IT solutions for the common IT Administrator.
