Dell to expand support for VMware View and PCoIP protocol in Europe

Infotech Lead America: Dell will expand support for VMware View and PCoIP protocol on its zero- and thin-clients, Desktop as a Service (DaaS) with PCoIP support and new channel partner solutions to Europe.

As part of expanding cloud client computing solutions that assist to implement, manage, deploy and access virtual computing environments using VMware, Dell Desktop as a Service (DaaS) will now be available in the United Kingdom, France, Germany and Netherlands.

Enterprises will benefit as the expanded Cloud client computing solutions will be available from Dell’s data center in Slough, UK that promises to offer continuous uptime and application availability.

DaaS enables customers to focus on managing only the OS, applications and user profiles while leaving the management of the VDI infrastructure to Dell. IT departments will gain from the flexibility to scale from only a few users to thousands.

Dell has priced DaaS at €35, £29 and $36 per seat per month.

This demonstrates our commitment to providing an excellent user experience, while helping IT departments cost-effectively manage and secure intellectual property,” said Tarkan Maner, general manager and vice president, Cloud Client Computing at Dell.
