One of the great features of the Dell Wyse Appliance for Citrix, vWorkspace or Precision is the ability to quickly setup these appliances by using our Quick Start Tool. The Quick Start Tool is a wizard that will walk you through the appliance configuration in a series of steps and at the end will configure the appliance with your configuration. This helps to get these appliances up and running quickly especially for POC’s and small environments. Here is a great video walk through of the Quick Start Tool for the Precision Appliance
A review of the appliance was also done 1/2016 at Storage Review which you can check out here.
I’ve included some of the steps you would normally see for one of the appliances below.. The screen shots below are what the Quick Start Tool steps would look like when configuring the Precision Appliance using vGPU & NVIDIA K2 video cards.
- Launch Quick Start Tool
2. Overview of Quick Start Tool and information to get started including configuring the host.
3. This screen shows the 2 NVIDIA K2 cards (2 GPU’s per card for total of 4 GPU’s as shown) in this specific appliances configuration.
4. Once your host is configured and in this case, NVIDIA cards selected, the Quick Start Tool will go through and configure the appliance.
5. Once the appliance is configured the last steps will be to install the operating system and applications.
Hopefully this gives you a high level view of what the Quick Start Tool does and provides a bit of an overview of the process.
You can see a video of this same configuration here.
