To Improve security and operational efficiency
IBM has signed an agreement with Sugamo Shinkin Bank to build a virtual client environment utilising Smart Business Desktop Cloud.
As part of the project, Sugamo Shinkin Bank has begun migrating 900 personal computers (PCs) from the bank’s 45 sites to the new environment, IBM said.
The company said that the desktop cloud environment provides automatic updates to all related client environments and will eliminate use of update releases for all sites and a separate configuration process on each personal computers (PC).
The desktop cloud environment will require an update on virtual desktop environment via the server, and the data will be managed over data centre servers.
IBM said that its Smart Business Desktop Cloud will enhance Sugamo Shinkin Bank’s security and increase operational efficiency.
Initially, 200 client terminals in five sites will start operation in desktop cloud environment in August 2010.
