Dell Hybrid Client 1.6 Launch

What is Dell Hybrid Client (DHC)

Dell Hybrid Client (DHC) is the world’s first client computing software with hybrid cloud management enabling seamless access to applications and data whether they are in the cloud, in the data center, or locally in a ready-to-deploy commercial solution.

DHC is an ideal commercial client solution for customers interested in an alternative to Microsoft Windows endpoint device with out-of-the-box support for browser-based and SaaS applications via local browsers, Windows applications via VDI infrastructure, and local resources.

This release, along with including new features, has been focused on expanding the support of additional hardware platforms across OptiPlex, Latitude, and Precision models.  The expanded platform support is achieved through two different customer options:  Factory install options and Customer install options.  Factory install options include the DHC bundle and license entitlement pre-installed ready out of the box.  For customer install options, you must select an OS with Ubuntu Linux 20.04 with DCA Enabler and customers can convert their hardware to a Dell Hybrid Client when they check in to Wyse Management Suite. 

DHC is available to purchase as a 1, 3, or 5-year subscription license which includes a Wyse Management Suite Pro seat license and ProSupport for Software.
