Desktop Virtualization --- the future is Fujitsu

We are pleased to announce the first true Zero Client, a simple-to-manage, intelligent front-end display device that delivers dramatic cost savings for organizations with large numbers of workplaces. The Fujitsu Zero Client does not require an operating system, processor, applications or local data backup, setting a new standard in cost-efficient connections to Desktop Virtual Machines (DVMs).

The Zero Client D602 is a revolutionary new way of supplying IT to your office. As a front-end device designed for a desktop virtualization environment, it delivers a full desktop experience at a fraction of the normal cost. Ideal for standard office applications and offering the user all the necessary essentials, the Zero Client D602 is a space-saving solution for large deployments. It comes completely fanless and eliminates the processor, integrated storage and hardware costs common to both thin and fat clients, the Zero Client D602 offers exceptional security, an extremely long lifecycle, excellent reliability and absolutely no noise during operation. Thanks to Desktop Virtualization, a Zero Client deployment allows a business to deploy IT resources flexibly and react quickly to changing users and working locations and environments.

Fujitsu’s innovative solution goes a step beyond previous market approaches towards fully virtualized clients, and represents the ultimate in cost-effectiveness and simplicity.

The Carbon Neutral Company has put together some tips to help you reduce your office footprint.  The full article is issued in the Warwickshire & Coventry Voice of Business but they do suggest companies use more technology within the workplace. 

Of Course, Discus agrees!!

It is reported that offices should use more technology within the workplace: instead of travelling to a business meeting why don't you use video conferencing facilities instead.  If your audience is not based in the same building or office  and you are planning a conference or workshop then webinars are a good alternative.  After just 4.5 mile return trips you will have saved 1kg of CO2.

Also, if everybody in the office switched off their monitor at night, it would take 45 mins to save 1kg of CO2 in an office of 130 people.

If you need help purchasing new technology give Discus a call 0800 880 3360
