Dell today announced it has signed a definitive agreement to acquire Wyse Technology, the global leader in cloud client computing, to significantly extend its desktop virtualization offerings. After the recent AppAssure and SonicWall acquisition is a new move to increase the solutions portfolio: the addition of Wyse will expand Dell’s desktop virtualization capabilities and provide new solutions and services opportunities for the full range of Dell’s enterprise offerings.

Wyse’s assets will add to Dell’s existing desktop virtualization offerings, Desktop Virtualization Solution Simplified and Desktop Virtualization Solution Enterprise, and its recent Desktop as a Service (DaaS) partnership with Desktone.

Could be interesting see what will happen to existing Optiplex FX solution that provide similar features of Wyse solutions.

As the press release notes, the transaction was approved by the board of directors of each company. Additional terms of the transaction were not disclosed. The transaction remains subject to customary conditions and is expected to close in the second quarter of Dell’s FY13.
