ROUND ROCK, Texas -- November 29, 2012

Dell today announced new cloud client computing solutions providing customers
who have selected a Microsoft desktop virtualization strategy with additional
infrastructure options. Dell DVS Enterprise for Windows Server 2012 is an
end-to-end desktop virtualization infrastructure enabling IT to provide
workers with secure and flexible access to data and applications while
simplifying management and improving data security, control and compliance.
This end-to-end offering further extends Dell’s leading position in the cloud
client computing market.

DVS Enterprise for Windows Server 2012 is an on-premises solution designed to
help Dell partners and customers easily size and deliver pre-tested Dell
hardware components to support specific configurations over 1,000 remote
desktop sessions or up to 600 VDI users. It is ideal for organizations such as
schools and universities that have existing Microsoft and education licensing
and purchasing agreements and are interested in a limited-sized deployment,
along with a mix of remote desktop sessions and virtual machines at an
affordable cost.

The end-to-end solution based on the recently announced reference architecture
has been pre-tested and pre-configured with Dell PowerEdge 12G Servers, Dell
EqualLogic storage, Dell Force10 networking, Dell ProSupport¹, Dell Wyse thin
clients and Windows Server 2012 server licensing with multiple real-life
workloads. Dell DVS Enterprise for Windows Server 2012 provides multiple
virtualization modes, including pooled and personal virtual desktops and
Remote Desktop Services that are all managed, deployed and configured from the
same console.

Dell Wyse’s range of Windows Server 2012 RemoteFX optimized and certified thin
clients, including the R10L, D90D7, Z90D7, as well as the X90m7 mobile thin
clients, provides users with a robust experience, even on low-bandwidth and
high-latency connections. With Dell Wyse endpoints, people working with
graphics intensive or VoIP applications can enjoy a high quality experience
regardless of network connection or geographic location.

DVS Enterprise for Windows Server 2012 is available today in the U.S., Canada,
U.K., France, Germany and Netherlands via direct and channel partners from
