Product Details

The Dell Appliance for Wyse – Citrix is one of the easiest ways for smaller organizations to purchase, deploy, scale and manage Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops, formerly XenDesktop today. It allows organizations to start small with as few as 50 users and expand easily to as many as 5,000 users. It is also an ideal platform for larger organizations to conduct a Citrix-based VDI proof-of-concept (PoC) or pilot environment prior to embarking on a larger-scale deployment. The VDI appliance provides organizations with a ‘quick start tool’ to enable people with basic IT admin and end-user support skills to rapidly configure the appliance and deploy desktops in a Citrix environment in as little as two hours, while also supporting scaling of the entire installation. With this refreshed solution, businesses and schools can now install an infrastructure that starts small and easily scales with lower complexity, while still being managed by existing IT generalist staff.

Easy deployment. Big, scalable possibilities.

Speed time-to-value: Deploy infrastructure up to several thousands of users quickly and easily. Start with one appliance for a pilot or a small group, and scale quickly to meet your organization’s needs.

Do it yourself: Install and easily deploy virtual desktops in as little as two hours. Easily add more appliances to increase the number of users. The Dell-developed ‘quick start tool’ helps make it possible for people who support PCs today to deploy and scale VDI themselves.

Preconfigured & easy to order: Pick the form factor you need – rack or tower – select the number of user licenses and order with confidence. All of the appliance-related software is included, so there’s nothing extra to specify and purchase.

Your own cloud: Increase security and reduce administration time by forgoing public cloud services. Your Wyse appliance is hosted onsite and under your control.

Seamless with Dell: The appliance works with all Dell endpoints, including Wyse and Chrome products, as well as with any Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops-compatible endpoint.

Predictable scale: Grow your deployment by simply adding more appliances to match the number of users, without "rip and replace".

Efficient enterprise-class VDI.

Empower your organization by allowing them to securely access data and applications with any device, from anywhere with the Dell Appliance for Wyse – Citrix. Start with a single appliance, providing your organization with as many as 340 shared sessions or 245 virtual desktops with Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops, and expand predictably to as many as 5,000 and watch your organization’s productivity grow.

High-value VDI tailored for smaller organizations.

Powerful: At an affordable per user cost, the Dell Appliance for Wyse can run Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops for up to 340 shared session users or 245 desktop users on a choice of Dell PowerEdge R730 or T630 servers, the best-selling servers for VDI.

Simple: Two configurations – Large and Small/Pilot – provide standalone VDI for a pilot or smaller workgroup. When scaling, the Small/Pilot configuration becomes the management server and you simply add the number of Large servers needed to accommodate your users. These changes are completely supported by the Dell ‘quick start tool’, which is custom-designed for the appliance lets you deploy your appliances and add new ones easily, with only IT admin skills needed.

Secure: Let your users work offsite with their own devices while the data and applications they use remain safe and secure on your premises. The Wyse solution helps you maintain regulatory compliance and the privacy of your data and lessens concerns about lost laptops or other data breaches.

Use Windows applications – including the entire Office Suite - with the Dell Appliance for Wyse - Citrix. One appliance can deliver Windows apps seamlessly to 340 Chromebooks or any other compatible tablet or other mobile device. Use the software you know and love on the device you prefer.
