Dell updates its desktop virtualization software

Dell has pushed out a new version of its desktop virtualization management software for its Wyse clients and PCs.

Dell Wyse WMS 7, which delivers almost any Windows application for running on a physical or virtual desktop, now includes two new features to help IT administrators oversee clients.

They include:

–new application layering capabilities allowing admins to separately provision individual applications or groups of applications by policy or department to any physical or virtual desktop. This means IT teams can look forward to increased control with decreased management headaches for their virtual desktop environments, says Dell;

–and a client caching feature the company says significantly enhances the performance of virtual desktops and applications delivered over WSM by reducing server storage and network bandwidth requirements.

WSM delivers on-demand virtualized OS’s and applications to traditional desktops, Wyse cloud desktops and server platforms, David Angwin said in a company blog. “It offers customers the choice of re-using existing PCs, deploying Wyse cloud clients, or adopting a hybrid approach. Additionally, WSM-provisioned desktops consume less power and are easy to replace if lost, damaged or stolen, since no data or applications are stored locally. These benefits ultimately translate into reduced costs, increased security and reduced environmental impact.”
