Dell Enhances OS Virtualization With Server Streaming

Dell Cloud Client Computing has begun shipping desktop and application virtualization software with server-streaming capability, intended to help organizations harness the benefits of virtualization and cloud computing. The new release, version 6 of Dell Wyse WSM, adds on-demand delivery of server OS images to Dell’s end-user computing portfolio.

Dell Wyse WSM delivers operating systems and applications separately to stateless, diskless clients on demand. Cloud clients have the same look, performance, feel and function of a traditional desktop PC, but storing all OS, applications, and data in the data center. With no OS residing on the client, management, support and updates, including Windows XP and 7 migrations, are performed centrally.

In addition to desktop and application virtualization, Dell Wyse WSM 6 now also enables server-image delivery to physical or virtual machines. In addition, the vendor says, Dell Wyse WSM now enables server and desktop streaming to Microsoft Hyper-V and VMware ESX 5.1 virtual machines and above.
