Unidesk optimises DVS Enterprise deployments, reducing VDI storage capacity by up to 70%

DVS Enterprise combines the new Dell PowerEdge 12th generation servers, Dell storage, Dell network components, broker and hypervisor software, services and end points including thin clients.
Unidesk integrates with technology from both Citrix and VMware to provide the l management capabilities to simplify VDI implementations and reduce overall total cost of ownership.
The DVS Enterprise and Unidesk will enable IT organisations to achieve streamlined IT management and enhanced user experience through Unidesk’s desktop layering technology, even if users require different applications or personalisation.
