Sun wins contract
Reuters has selected Sun Microsystems to install a virtual desktop solution in the news agency’s new centre in the Chinese capital.
Rather than go for the traditional PC model, Reuters opted to host virtual desktops in its data centre using Sun Ray Software and VMware Virtual Desktop Infrastructure.
Employees in the Reuters Beijing office are now equipped with Sun Ray thin clients for on-site work and to remotely access their virtual desktops through Sun Secure Global Desktop software.
Sun said the solution would improve business agility and flexibility, enhance security and reduce management and administration costs.
Reuters Technology China (RTCL) will house around 200 China-based employees of the news agency by the end of this year.
