Dell Inc. Key Developments
Dell Inc. Introduces Operating System 10
Jan 28 16
Dell Inc. has extended its reach in open networking with the introduction of Operating System 10, or OS10, from Dell Networking. This next-generation networking software is designed to introduce new levels of software flexibility and programmability in large-scale data center environments. The OS10 software environment advances the functionality of modern data centers by disaggregating network software, so customers have more choice in how software is used throughout IT operations. OS10 gives customers a future-ready springboard to innovate their networks and data center infrastructure more quickly and consistently, affording customers greater efficiency and capability at scale. The OS10 platform is designed around new benchmarks for open software modularity so users can create the most efficient and flexible paths across networked systems. OS10 is comprised of a base module and various optional application modules. Now, what had formerly been bundled into tightly-integrated, vendor-specific stacks, has been separated to enhance customer choice, control and programmability. The OS10 Base Module is available for free and runs a fully-open, unmodified Linux distribution. Linux is one of the most widely-used operating systems and can provide a common language across multiple IT layers including networking, storage and compute. The OS10 Base Module can leverage the Linux community-based benefits which can help enhance its programmability, portability, and flexibility for the application layer above it. Below it, the OS 10 Base Module employs the Open Compute Project Switch Abstraction Interface (SAI) that enables a common, programmer-friendly language between vendor network operating systems and the particular silicon residing on the physical switch. SAI helps web-scale companies and cloud providers take advantage of the latest silicon innovation by enabling them to program the switches more granularly. On top of the base module, OS10 can support traditional networking functions (L2/L3 protocols) from Dell as well as numerous third-party, native Linux, and open source applications such as IP, fabric and security services combined with management and automation tools. This allows customers to tailor IT operations for different use case and operational processes. OS10's unmodified Linux base provides distinct advantages as customers increasingly look to design applications and data centers across server, storage and networking - not just one silo. While OS10 will have appeal for traditional network operators seeking conventional programming means, the software will also appeal to DevOps communities seeking a consistent, common development environment across server, storage and networking elements. OS10 highlights the potential for helping customers rapidly develop, customize and ultimately take advantage of a true software-defined data center. In March, Dell expects OS10 base module will begin shipping and Dell-developed application modules will enter beta testing for release later in the year.
Dell Unveils Wyse ThinOS 8.2 Cloud Solution
Jan 21 16
Dell Inc. has unveiled Wyse ThinOS 8.2, a new release of its thin client software, which now offers Lync 2010, Lync 2013 and the Skype for Business client for Lync 2015, or UI mode, via the Citrix HDX RealTime Optimization Pack. Dell also released a new version of its innovative Dell Appliance for Wyse Citrix, a virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) appliance which simplifies and merges the server, storage and networking components required to deploy a Citrix environment into an easy-to-buy 2U module that starts small and provides scale-out capabilities for up to 5,000 users with Citrix XenDesktop. These two new additions to its cloud client-computing portfolio optimize communication productivity for new and existing thin client users and make it easier, faster, and more cost-effective to deploy and run Citrix environments. These solutions highlight Dell's commitment to accelerate the adoption of virtual desktop infrastructure across a vast range of use cases, making VDI an increasingly attractive option for organizations of all sizes, including smaller businesses, to deploy and manage throughout their Citrix architectures. Dell Wyse ThinOS 8.2 is the latest release of Dell's highly secure, virus-mitigated thin client software installed in millions of thin clients that offers high performance desktop virtualization protocols with ease of management. Specifically available with the new ThinOS 8.2, the Citrix HDX RealTime Optimization Pack for Microsoft Skype for Business 1.8, Lync 2010 and Lync 2013 provides clear, crisp high-definition audio/video calls in an optimized architecture. Workers can seamlessly participate in audio/video or audio-only calls to and from other Lync or Skype for Business users and other standards-based video desktop and conference room multipoint control unit (MCU) systems. All audio/video processing is offloaded from the server to the end-user device or terminal, optimizing the quality of the call with minimal impact on server or network scalability. Features of Dell Wyse ThinOS 8.2 include: Unified Communications Connectivity; Enhanced Security; and Backward Compatibility and Extended Product Support. The Citrix HDX RealTime Optimization Pack for Lync included with ThinOS 8.2 supports Lync Server and Client 2010 and 2013, as well as the Skype for Business client in Lync 2015 (UI mode). The operating system includes updated security and encryption methods including support for TLS 1.2 with AES. ThinOS 8.2 also supports a robust 802.1x wired and wireless authentication security protocol suite. ThinOS 8.2 can be installed on millions of existing Dell Wyse thin clients including the Wyse 5010, 7010 and 5040 AIO with ThinOS, and the Wyse 5010, and 5040 AIO with PCoIP. The new release of the Dell Appliance for Wyse Citrix adds new scalability capabilities to its already robust desktop virtualization appliance. Now able to scale up to 5,000 users, the appliance is one of the easiest ways for smaller organizations to purchase, deploy, scale and manage Citrix XenDesktop today. It is also an ideal platform for larger organizations to conduct a Citrix-based VDI proof-of-concept (PoC) or pilot environment prior to embarking on a larger-scale deployment. The VDI appliance provides organizations with a 'quick start tool' to enable people with basic IT admin and end-user support skills to rapidly configure the appliance and deploy desktops in a Citrix environment in as little as two hours, while also supporting scaling of the entire installation. With this refreshed solution, businesses and schools can now install an infrastructure that starts small and easily scales with lower complexity, while still being managed by existing IT generalist staff. Key features of the solution include: Simplicity, Scalability, Heterogeneous Users, End-to-End Solution and Cost-effective. The appliance is easy to plan, order, install, operate and manage, dramatically cutting the time to quickly and easily implement a VDI program. The appliance scales to as many as 5,000 users, one appliance at a time. The infrastructure can support basic, advanced and professional users, and can leverage any compatible endpoints, all within the same appliance. The appliance can be configured with Wyse thin clients optimized for Citrix HDX and Dell ProSupport for an effective end-to-end VDI solution. Organizations can start with a single server appliance purchase, and deliver XenDesktop shared sessions starting at $440 per user, or $576 per user for traditional desktop virtualization.
