Dell gave a warm welcome to our channel partners at VMware PEX 2013. The connections and empowerment started with the pre-conference boot camp and extended into the Dell Booth #514, where Dell SMEs engaged and shared their expertise. The reception extended to Dell's Partner Appreciation party that took place in the mIX Lounge. The feedback has been very positive from Dell channel partners. 

After the Dell party, I met up with Bill Henderson, QLogic Principal Architect, at QLogic's party. There will be some very interesting tech content forthcoming on Dell TechCenter between Dell and QLogic. Thank you Bill for the invite and your tech insights.

In closing, I'd like to invite you to Dell's breakout session, SPO2323, Dell and VMware - VDI Game Changer for Our Channel Partners. The session takes place on February 26th from 12:30 - 1:30PM and the key takeaways will be:

1. Dell offers a world-class VDI solution, optimized with VMware View that is easy to order, configure, deploy and support and within budget.
2. Ability to resell fully integrated, end-to-end, converged VDI solution targeted at the mid-market.
3. Vertical solution around common use cases of Always On Desktop and Mobile Secure Desktop that further simplify and speed up deployments.
