Dell Cloud Client Computing has released version 6 of Dell Wyse WSM desktop and application virtualization software. The company said that this new version includes server streaming capability to help organizations leverage the benefits of virtualization and the cloud.
Virtualization is one of the technologies that have the ability to enhance business processes and efficiency while also providing great ROI. Companies of all sizes are increasingly realizing that by strategically leveraging virtualization they can increase service availability, reduce IT costs, and respond faster to their changing business needs.
Virtualization is a technical word that refers to running multiple operating systems or server environments on a single machine. For example, the majority of computers have one operating system installed per machine. Virtualization allows multiple operating systems to use the same physical resources.

Citrix announced Wednesday it has released a new version of Citrix XenDesktop that comes with significant enhancements in user personalization and high-def experience, as well as with rich consumer device support. XenDesktop 5.5 adds the “Personalized vDisk” technology to all editions of XenDesktop, enabling customers to deploy highly personalized virtual desktops at much lower cots. Citrix acquired Personalized vDisk technology from RingCube earlier this month.
XenDesktop 5.5 also features important enhancement of company’s Citrix HDX™ user experience technology, enabling customers to deliver high-definition virtual desktops up to three times faster for both LAN and WAN users.
Business demand for rapid time-to-market and lower operational costs is driving IT organizations to quickly adopt new approaches such as composite application architectures and cloud services. As the quest for quickly delivering high-quality business services continues, IT management – from automation and security to governance and service assurance – becomes the most critical factor for success.
CA Technologies acquisition of ITKO will add a new and critical dimension to modern IT management and extend it to encompass the entire service delivery lifecycle. In particular, the acquisition will help customers overcome the limitations of current organizational approaches, breaking down the silos across development, testing and operations.
“The addition of ITKO to CA Technologies will extend our ability to deliver a complete set of capabilities to help our customers and partners to increase their adoption and value from cloud-based applications,” said David Dobson, executive vice president, Customer Solutions Group, CA Technologies.
Indiana University has chosen Citrix as a preferred partner in helping the university deliver and support virtual technologies for its approximately 100,000+ students, faculty, and staff. The partnership effectively creates a “Personal Cloud” where users can access applications and data as an on-demand service — anytime, anywhere, and on any PC, Mac, tablet or smart phone.
Using Citrix XenDesktop® with FlexCast™ technology, IU will be able to extend a broad range of applications and data to faculty, staff and students as a secure cloud-based service regardless of their location. In turn, the IU community will have access to licensed software and data storage at any time, on any device – whether a laptop, desktop, tablet or smart phone.
The implementation, code-named IUAnyWare, comes as part of IU’s phased initiative to establish a new model for personal computing in higher education, and provide desktop virtualization to increase operational efficiencies, reduce desktop support costs and increase accessibility and security of user applications and data. The IU initiative will utilize Citrix XenDesktop to deliver a personal computing environment as a cloud service, and Microsoft SharePoint for localized cloud storage. The ben
