Devon IT Offers Free VDI Blaster to Dell Small and Medium Business Customers

Devon IT, a leading provider of thin client and VDI hardware and software solutions, today announced the availability of free VDI Blaster software for any current Dell small and medium business (SMB) customers. This offer is valid for 20 copies of VDI Blaster available through November 30, 2011.   

Devon IT VDI Blaster is the most popular software tool that enables a PC to act as a thin client currently available in the growing VDI market. VDI Blaster converts PCs into secure and centrally manageable desktop appliances, enables SMB organizations to realize benefits of thin client computing, and extends capital investment in PCs. VDI Blaster offers the benefits of a thin client at a smaller cost than a new device.

There are many benefits that VDI Blaster offers. Once a PC reaches the end of its useful life, VDI Blaster provides a simple plug-and-play solution to transform the PC into a thin client, which is still able to run Windows OS and applications. It also allows the PCs to return to their previous state if necessary. It minimizes the risk of switching to a fully virtualized architecture. VDI Blaster makes centrally-managed desktops possible, which reduces risk and allows for synchronized system updates. Devon IT VDI Blaster will connect thin clients to Microsoft Terminal Services, shared services, and virtual desktops from Citrix XenDesktop, Microsoft, or VMware View.

“Small to Medium size businesses employ the lions share of the nations work force, Virtual Desktop computing can enable many of these enterprises to have the same IT support as their larger counterparts without the expense. Dell’s hosted VDI is the industry’s leading shared VDI approach. This Free VDI blaster offer will allow many users to test out the power of Dell’s offering for no up front cost. Dell’s SMB customers will be able to experience the value of virtualization that some of the world’s largest corporations and organizations are already seeing,” concluded Makoid. “We are committed to expanding the market potential for server-based and virtual technologies, and are thrilled to share this offer.”

VDI Blaster can be managed by Devon IT Echo – a universal thin client management software platform. Devon IT Echo ties everything together and is compatible with the entire Devon IT software stack. It manages every device running Devon IT VDI Blaster™ software and comes included with each VDI Blaster license. Features of Echo are thin client system image updates, maintenance and management functionality, including inventory, status, and remote service, as well as profiling, logging, and shadowing.

“Dell’s SMB customers will be able to experience the value of virtualization that some of the world’s largest corporations and organizations are already seeing,” concluded Makoid. “We are committed to expanding the market potential for server-based and virtual technologies, and are thrilled to share this offer.”

Dell SMB customers should contact their Dell sales representative to confirm eligibility for this program.
