Investing in Virtualization: Dell Set to Acquire Wyse

(Ping! Zine Web Hosting Magazine) – Today computer company Dell announced an acquisition that places it more towards the forefront of the virtualization industry. Dell is set to acquire Wyse Technology, a company specializing in providing mobility solutions for cloud and virtualization, among other services.

“Desktop virtualization can help organizations streamline IT management, improve productivity and security, and increase cost efficiency for discrete workloads or usage scenarios,” commented Dell President of End User Computing Solutions Jeff Clarke in a press release regarding the matter.

Clarke also said that the addition of Wyse Technology complimented his company’s portfolio.

Financial terms of the acquisition were not disclosed but company employees were set to discuss the matter in an analyst call on Monday.

According to Dell, during the final quarter of last year, Wyse ranked first in the area of “thin client unit shipment volume.” The move shortly follows another announcement from Dell in the area of virtualization. On Friday, the company announced new services for Light and Complex IT. For more information regarding the acquisition, view a press release here (
