Tarkan Maner Discusses Role of Dell Wyse in Cloud Future

Tarkan ManerVMworld 2012 is in full swing, and yesterday the Cube hosts John Furrier and Dave Vellante had a chance to sit down with the energetic CEO of Dell Wyse, Tarkan Maner. The topic of discussion was how Dell Wyse plans to redefine the virtual desktop business.

Maner explained that Wyse, founded in 1981, was the pioneer of the thin client concept, and the company has maintained a working partner relationship with Dell for the past 7 years. For Wyse, Maner explained, developing a closer relationship with Dell just made sense, and that became a reality with Dell’s acquisition of Wyse.

Dell is leading the IT industry, Maner said, into the era of end-to-end solutions. Dell Wyse hopes to deliver content to end users with minimal hardware: a $25 device that uses power over ethernet (POE) and provides users with voice, data, and video all over the cloud. Content is king, Maner reiterated, and the ultimate goal is to provide content to users on any device, at any time, and in any place, reliably and securely.

As part of Dell’s push into this fast-growing end-to-end market, the company is meeting with many of the other companies involved in VMworld, including Citrix, Google, Microsoft, VMware and others to discuss ways that they can provide customers with end-to-end cloud solutions.

Maner said Dell is a 60 billion dollar business operating with the passion of a 20 million dollar startup, and if his enthusiasm is any reflection on the company, he may have a valid point. Watch the full interview below.
