"We are impressed with the speed, ease-of-use and affordability. The cost savings are phenomenal — it was 1/6th the cost of the alternatives."
- Steve Armstrong, Sr. Analyst, Parker SSD Drives, a division of Parker Hannifin Corporation
Many IT decision makers are pondering over key questions like,
- Are you spending too much time reacting to user PC issues?
- Do you want to centralize and improve PC management, but only have a PC budget?
- Do you want to standardize PC operations?
- Are you concerned you may not have the required skillsets to move to VDI?
- Do you need to support non-PC/mobile devices?
- Are you interested in a Virtual Desktop Solution, but feel the current offerings are too complex to manage?
While it is known that desktop virtualization offers increased data security, efficiency and reduced desktop management costs, the upfront investment and complexity can be high.
Join Citrix and Dell to explore the technologies, use-cases and best practices that make desktop virtualization ridiculously easy, while delivering a quick return on investment (ROI).
You will learn how to:
- Radically simplify desktop virtualization – deploying VDI is as easy as 1-2-3
- Deliver the mobility and flexibility end-users crave – with minimal costs
- Scale by simply adding more capacity – with nothing to re-architect or reconfigure
Simple to Install, Simple to Use, Simple to Manage, and Simple to Scale.
