"One reason we look to Dell as a strategic solution provider is that
they are always looking for ways to accelerate time to value for
organizations like ours by incorporating new, disruptive technologies,"
said Chris Mertens, Director of IT, Hamilton County Government of
Indiana. "By implementing Dell certified Unidesk VDI management software
on Dell's Desktop Virtualization Solutions platform with Dell PowerEdge
servers, Dell EqualLogic storage, Dell Wyse thin clients and VMware View
software, we have been able to increase the number of virtual desktops
deployed, and keep our VDI project on track for success."
"At Moffitt Cancer Center and Research Institute, as in any clinical
setting, time is of the essence, especially when treating diseases like
cancer. The Dell Wyse Xenith zero client with Imprivata OneSign partner
integration has helped our testing lab to reduce time to access our EHR
platform from six minutes to twenty seconds," said John McFarland,
Manager of Enterprise Architecture at Moffitt Cancer Center and Research
Institute. "We are pleased that Imprivata joined the Dell Technology
Partner Program and anxious to get the integrated platform into the
hands of our clinicians so that our systems can deliver information
wherever and whenever they need it as quickly as possible."
"As an end user, the Dell Technology Partner Program has provided value
to our company as it allowed us to reduce the amount of time it takes to
move large volumes of data over constrained networks," said Bart Haans,
ICT manager for ZLTO. "With Silver Peak (News - Alert) being a certified partner, we
had the peace of mind that their solution working with Dell EqualLogic
arrays would help us accelerate WAN link traffic without requiring
changes to the network."
