Windows 10 and Dell VDI: A Match Made in Heaven – Learn Why You Don’t Need VDA and Save $50/year per device

Tuesday, September 27 from 12:05 – 12:25pm ET in Theater 1 on the Expo Floor

Andre Beuchat will explain how Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) can help bolster security, ease desktop management, and enable mobility by keeping key apps and content within the secure data center while users access their specific apps and desktops from their devices of choice. While these benefits may seem obvious, actually implementing VDI in a timely and cost-effective manner has historically been anything but easy, both financially and operationally. Until now. Dell and Microsoft are advancing VDI to new levels of affordability and simplicity by making it even easier to offer to more users than ever with a range of new solutions and products designed to extend the secure, productive user experience to more people, in more locations, and from more devices.

In this session, attendees will learn how Dell EMC solves for consolidation and scale-up to migrate from earlier versions of SQL Server, lowering TCO with dense platforms, small datacenter footprints and efficient system management as well as high performance analytics using Dell EMC PowerEdge Servers and a Dell EMC all-flash storage backend.
