The new Dell Wyse Datacenter for Virtual Workstations enables employees running demanding workloads to benefit not only from increased geographic flexibility through mobile access to applications, but also company BYOD programs, resulting in improved workflows, significant time savings and increased employee morale. Additionally, with a centrally hosted and managed graphics environment, IT managers are able to more efficiently deploy high end workloads and use IT resources more effectively while ensuring data integrity and efficient failover. The solution also allows users to share a centralized data set, enabling greater productivity as well as secure collaboration with third parties, as users from across the globe can remotely access the same data and applications on an as-needed basis.
Dell has a long history of delivering innovative end-to-end assets that help customers address real world IT challenges, said Charles King, president and principal analyst, Pund-IT, Inc. Dells Center of Excellence is yet another example of the companys high-touch engagement model. Customers can move their data and graphics-intensive applications to virtual environments with confidence due to Dell's deep institutional knowledge, expertise and proven reference architectures that are certified for leading professional software applications.
The Workstation Virtualization Center of Excellence is now open in the Dell Solutions Center in Round Rock, Texas, and Dell plans to open additional sites globally. The Dell Wyse Datacenter for Virtual Workstations solution reference architectures for VMware Horizon View and Citrix XenDesktop are available online today to customers around the world.

Design and engineer professionals are more mobile and distributed than ever before and they are working on projects with ever increasing complexity. These projects teams need the ability to access critical design data from anywhere and at any time, said Ben Cochran, Senior Architect for Platform Products. Virtualization solutions give designers and engineers the flexibility, security and power to run sophisticated 3D design applications such as AutoCAD, Inventor, Revit or 3ds Max on virtually any device, or via a web browser. We are excited that Dell is providing a virtualization solution targeted at our professional customers.
We have seen a keen interest from our customers in virtualized environments for increased security, streamlined manageability and end-user flexibility so we are very excited to partner with Dell to bring a solution to market to meet their needs, said Bertrand Sicot, CEO SolidWorks, Dassault Systèmes. Weve committed to certify and support configurations for virtualized 3D graphics to provide the same level of confidence and support that current SolidWorks workstations users have come to depend on.
PTC and Dell are long-standing partners. A key focus of the partnership is to ensure that Dell system configurations undergo extensive testing and are certified on PTC Creo®, said Brian Thompson, Vice President of Product Management, CAD Segment at PTC Inc. PTC Creo 2.0 desktop virtualization certification on the Dell Precision R7610 and Citrix XenServer 6.2 is in-process, with additional configurations in the planning stage. Our joint customers will benefit from improved performance when working with large assemblies stored on a remote server, while ensuring IP protection of the design data and streamlining administration and deployment of PTC Creo.
Intel and Dell are partnering to open the Dell Workstation virtualization Center of Excellence, the first testing and innovation center for customers and partners to experiment, test and develop remote as well as virtualized workstation environments, said Frank Soqui, Workstation General Manager at Intel. Additionally, we are enabling ISV-certified reference architectures, which leverage powerful multi-core Intel Xeon processors E5 v2 family and enterprise-class SSDs, enabling resources to be allocated per user and increase user productivity, to help users simplify and speed deployment of their high-end graphics and data-intensive workloads.
Customers will enjoy rich graphics when running high-end workstation-class applications in a certified virtualized environment thanks to our work with Dell, said Ed Ellett, senior vice president of the Professional Solutions Business at NVIDIA. With NVIDIA GRID K1 and K2 solutions in the new Dell Wyse Datacenter for Virtual Workstations, graphics-rich applications will have workstation-class performance and reliability from any location on almost any device, with no compromises.
Dells announcement of the Workstation Virtualization Center of Excellence and Dell Wyse Datacenter for Virtual Workstations with Citrix XenDesktop raises the bar by enabling organizations to experience the remarkable performance and economic benefits of our joint graphics solutions with Dell and NVIDIA. This unique combination provides the only solution today that allows customers to efficiently share GPUs across multiple virtual machines, delivering rich media and graphic applications with exceptional performance at a significantly lower cost than standard pass-through GPU implementations, said Calvin Hsu, VP of product marketing, Desktops and Apps at Citrix.
VMware continues to expand the productivity and mobility benefits of virtualization to new customers and industries, said Erik Frieberg, vice president, End-User Computing, VMware. The new Dell Wyse Datacenter Virtual Workstation for VMware Horizon View provides an end-to-end solution thats reliable, secure, and simple to deploy and manage.
Desktop Virtualization has long been gaining popularity in the
enterprise as a means to securely deploy applications to users both in
the office and working remotely, said Steve Lalla, GM and VP, Cloud
Client Computing. We are delighted to be working closely with our
partners Citrix and VMware on extending virtualized desktops to those
users requiring high performance solutions with the additional
flexibility to use the tools of their job wherever and whenever they
