Dell releases version 6 of Dell Wyse WSM desktop virtualization software

Dell Cloud Client Computing has released version 6 of Dell Wyse WSM desktop and application virtualization software.

Dell on Tuesday said this new release adds server streaming capability to help enterprises that will benefit from virtualization and cloud computing. Enterprises can also simplify management and deployment processes and reduce costs.

By adding on-demand delivery of server OS images to Dell’s computing portfolio, Dell Wyse WSM 6 offers another computing alternative that helps organizations stand up new servers, and gives employees and students access to content regardless of location.

“The new Dell Wyse WSM server streaming feature demonstrates our commitment to making powerful virtualization and cloud computing tools practical and accessible to organizations of all sizes,” said Jeff McNaught, executive director of Marketing for Dell Cloud Client Computing.

Dell Wyse WSM delivers operating systems and applications separately to stateless, diskless clients on demand, providing a manageable, reliable and scalable PC computing experience from the cloud.

With no OS residing on the client, management, support and updates, including Windows XP and Windows 7 migrations, are done centrally and take considerably less time than with a traditional distributed environment.

In addition, Dell Wyse WSM 6 enables server image delivery to physical or virtual machines. This new feature allows for more agile deployment, configuration and management of virtual servers than existing methods – processes that previously took hours are reduced to minutes.

“We have had a very successful beta testing period using Dell Wyse WSM’s new features and are looking forward to continuing to work with them,” said JP Gagne, president at Baremetalcloud.

Recently, Dell acquired enterprise cloud-management software and services provider Enstratius. The company will further invest in Enstratius in order to create new opportunities for enterprises to accelerate application and IT service delivery across on-premises data centers and private clouds, combined with off-premises public cloud solutions.
