Dell™ is presenting a Reference Architecture (RA) composed of Dell PowerEdge™ 12G servers, Dell EqualLogic™ storage arrays, Dell Force10 top-of-rack (ToR) networking components, software and end points running on Microsoft Windows Server 2012 (WS 2012). It is qualified to work on RemoteFX-certified Dell Wyse end points R10L, Z90D7 and X90m7. This RA outlines a solution describing the design methodology behind a powerful, innovative and cost-effective end-to-end virtualized computing infrastructure, easily deployed into customers’ existing data centers, leveraging Dell and Microsoft solutions using Hyper-V, App-V and RemoteFX. It has been validated for a variety of user workloads and profiles combining Terminal Services, pooled virtual machines (VMs) and Personal VMs.

This DVS solution is ideal for Microsoft IT centric organizations focused on varied delivery methods ranging from Terminal Services to application virtualization to full desktop virtualization. Initially, the solution targets projects with 50 to 500 end users. Microsoft desktop virtualization solutions are particularly attractive for customers with strong contractual relationships in place that can take advantage of existing Microsoft licensing, such as customers in the education and government sector. These customers are already familiar with implementing and managing technical IT solutions from Microsoft, enabling a faster deployment cycle.
