Dell has launched a wide variety of products on the Desktop Virtualisation Suite. These new products are aimed for its customers to deploy, configure, and manage Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) while moving towards the digital transformation path.

DellEMC has made a lot of announcements at DellEMC World in May 2017. The company has expanded on four new products that will be most useful for Small-Medium Businesses (SMBs).

Dell states that VDI and Desktop Virtualisation are been considered as complicated space and only large companies who focus a lot on security can afford it and have deployed it.

There are many small companies who want to deploy the VDIs and Desktop Virtualisation machines but they cannot afford these large systems. Dell now has the opportunity to to meet the needs of SMBs who need these large components.

Dell will be launching a product which will be targeted for SMBs whose employee strength will be 100-500 people. It will also allow the SMBs to start with a three-node configuration which goes up to four-nodes by adding more appliances to it. It supports hypervisor, brokering technology from Citrix, Microsoft, and VMware.

Dells highest consumers of VDI are majorly Education Sectors. Preventing cyberbullying and preventing the test scores being manipulated are some of the main focus of this sector.  In the Healthcare Sector, organisations are mainly focused on protecting the electronic medical reports. The Local Government, banks and retailers are focused on protecting Credit Card and other personal information of their customers.

Dell says that this technology adaption is very important is such industries as they want the flexibility, which is offered by Dell.

Previously some organisations used to put the software, which is useful for you, on the device which will be the only way through which you can get your work done. But now with this, you have to put all the softwares on the server and then use the server to deliver those applications.
