Dell launched today a new Dell Wyse solution and special offer to provide more students with secure access to digital learning resources.
Dell is providing U.S. schools that are implementing any-device, anywhere computing an easy-to-deploy and manage desktop virtualization solution featuring a Dell Desktop Virtualization Solutions (DVS) Simplified Appliance, powered by a Dell PowerEdge 12th generation server and Citrix VDI-in-a-Box Software with a Dell Wyse T10 thin client for $500* per seat. This special offer is valid through Aug. 31.
The solution gives students anywhere in the school access to data and applications using a Dell Wyse thin client and from home using their personal devices. For school districts interested in supporting students using their own devices at school, the solution provides increased security while giving IT administrators and teachers more control over the school’s involvement in how students use their devices. IT departments can focus on enabling teachers and students to take advantage of blended learning approaches, not on managing devices. And with Dell Wyse systems’ zero touch management features, these low-power and low-touch end points eliminate hours of traditional basic support.
To help schools further simplify device management and expand student access to technology, Dell also today launched the new Dell Wyse E00 zero client—a zero-touch, budget-friendly, energy-efficient device that builds on the success of Dell Wyse E01 and Dell Wyse E02 zero clients. Enabling shared computing access for up to 15 students per server** using Microsoft Windows MultiPoint Server 2011 software, the E00 can consume substantially less power than a conventional PC helping school districts make the most of their technology budgets. The Dell Wyse E00 addresses the need for affordable, secure technology that is easy to set up and run, while delivering a great desktop experience for students.
In addition to thin clients, Dell provides a full range of client systems to meet the diverse needs of school districts, from the Dell Latitude ST Tablet specifically designed for use in education and healthcare, to the company’s award-winning XPS 13 Ultrabook.
