Dell Makes Virtualized Desktop Deployments Easy And Fast Along With Liquidware Labs

• Assessment, Design and Management Solutions Can Accelerate Customer
Migrations to Virtual Desktop Environments
• End-to-End Solutions
Help Eliminate Inefficiencies and Simplify Process for Customers

With desktop virtualization rapidly
becoming a means to empowering the next generation workforce, Dell
Services today announced a strategic agreement with Liquidware Labs to
enable simplified and accelerated customer migrations to virtualized
desktops within customer environments both onsite and in the cloud. In
this alliance, Liquidware Labs will provide virtual desktop assessment
software as well as migration and monitoring tools to enable Dell
Services to transition tens of thousands of customer desktops into
virtual desktop environments.

Dell Services will use Liquidware
Labs Stratusphere and ProfileUnity software to assess existing customer
desktops, migrate user data and documents to virtual desktop
environments, centrally configure the new desktops and provide
service-level assurance through detailed user experience reports. This
gives integrators and administrators an “on-ramp” and ongoing user
management of new desktop platforms.

The software also will enable
Dell Services to speed adoption and help lower the cost of rolling out
new desktop technologies such as VMware View, Citrix XenDesktop and
Microsoft Windows 7. Dell Services guides customers through the
complete lifecycle of virtual desktop services including: consulting,
implementation, transformation and operations. With its deep industry
expertise, Dell Services helps customers make the most beneficial use of
cloud and virtual technologies, enabling customers to achieve the level
of virtualization that best meets their needs. By offering cloud,
virtual and dedicated environments designed to meet security and
regulatory compliance requirements, Dell Services enables customers to
focus on achieving business success. In a virtualized desktop
environment, an end user’s data and applications are delivered from a
centralized server, giving customers outstanding flexibility to
centralize and control desktop management while enjoying the experience
of a full PC. This service can ease administration, help improve both
productivity and security controls and help customers lower costs.
