NEC Lights up the Desktop Virtualization
NEC has revealed details of one of the world’s largest implementations of VMware virtual desktops, expected to reach 20,000 by the end of 2008. This virtualised desktop infrastructure is known as the "NEC Virtual PC Centre", and is provided worldwide from NEC.
The 12,000 desktops currently in production are managed by three people. NEC has calculated that it expects to reduce desktop costs by approximately 46 percent over three years by moving from traditional desktop computers to a virtualised environment.
"The most significant effect of thin clients on our IT operations is that they have enabled uniform management of all PCs used at NEC," said Mr. Susumu Shimano, senior manager of Management Information Systems at NEC. "While it once took not only a substantial amount of effort but also two or three months to deploy new software, it is now possible for this to be accomplished in just a few hours from within the datacentre."
