Fujitsu Services has introduced virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) through its Oy’s Patja service, which incorporates client devices and the required data centre automation.
The new VDI runs centrally over a LAN to the users’ thin clients from a data centre and is compatible with a variety of client devices including: the traditional desktop PC computer, laptop, tablet PC and smartphone.
Fujitsu Services said that virtual desktop was safe, brings savings in maintenance costs, and is an ecological choice, as the amount of power it consumes and the natural resources consumed in manufacturing it are smaller than those of a regular desktop computer.
Through VDI users can sign in to their personal desktop on any device and can sign off from the system in the middle of the day and continue working on their home computer, in the same environment and space as they did at their office desk earlier.
In addition, for IT management virtualisation brings increased ease as applications are no longer managed computer by computer and technical issues are solved faster, as this can be done almost exclusively in the data centres.
The company said that the only requirement for virtual working is a functioning network connection with adsl band-width as a minimum.
