Lenovo Introduces As-a-Service Solution for Hosted Desktops with Nutanix
Today, Lenovo (HKSE: 992) (ADR: LNVGY) Infrastructure Solutions Group (ISG) with Nutanix announces an As-a-Service solution for Hosted Desktops to help IT decision makers thrive in the new remote hybrid workforce model. According to Lenovo’s recently released “Future of Work and Digital Transformation” study, 83 percent of businesses expect post-pandemic work to be remote at least half the time. Lenovo TruScale, Lenovo’s first solution for Hosted Desktops with Nutanix, provides companies with a complete and more secure remote work solution. A choice of Lenovo client devices is offered, such as thin clients and PCs, choice of Citrix and other virtual desktop environments, and ThinkAgile HX Series (powered by Nutanix), all licensed to the end user and managed as-a-service. The complete Hosted Desktops solution provides cloud-like simplicity and on-premises performance, with the convenience of a single monthly payment and single point of contact for support.
“Many organizations are modernizing their IT infrastructures to support the growing demands remote work continues to place on their IT systems,” said Kirk Skaugen, Executive Vice President, Lenovo Group and President of Infrastructure Solutions Group. “We are seeing a shift where customers are more interested in as-a-service models to help offset the investment associated with upgrading their IT systems quickly. Lenovo’s collaboration with Nutanix provides customers with a more secure, Hosted Desktop as-a-service solution that is easy to secure, deploy and manage with minimal up-front costs.”
Over the past few years and especially during this global pandemic, industries such as healthcare require the ability to complete more administrative and clinical activities remotely, with added safety and security. Fraser Health Authority, one of Canada’s largest and fastest growing health authorities servicing 1.8 million people in British Columbia, revitalized their data center with Lenovo and Nutanix to ensure high-quality patient services during a province-wide lockdown.
“We see that remote connectivity is more than just a short-term response to the COVID-19 pandemic. It’s part of our long-term strategy to ensure we can deliver vital health services no matter what,” said Wesley Kampff, Portfolio Manager, Fraser Health Authority. “To streamline maintenance and support, our preference was to engage a single vendor to deliver the workstations and data center solutions. We were confident that replacing our traditional three-tier architecture with the cutting-edge ThinkAgile HX hyperconverged platform, with Nutanix, would offer the performance, availability and scalability we wanted,” added Kampff.
