Fujitsu’s Futro C400 designed to reduce IT costs
The unit is designed for schools, small businesses, libraries
Fujitsu has revealed a new ultra thin desktop client, designed to allow multiple users access to full desktop applications across multiple workplaces using one host PC as a central server.
The Futro C400 is intended for use in schools, small businesses, libraries and anywhere the IT budget needs to be maximised.
The C400 units and displays have minimal hardware requirements for set-up and need just one single host desktop PC, along with Futro C400 units and displays for each workplace.
Depending on the PC's configuration, a single unit can host up to 30 simultaneous users.
"We have focused on driving down costs, using ultra thin client technology. The Futro C400 is ideal for SMBs and schools that want to benefit from a thin client infrastructure but may not have a server-based back-end," said Chandan Mehta, Product Manager at Fujitsu Technology Solutions.
The sharing of computer resources between users reduces management costs as software is managed centrally, making it easy to maintain.
Individual sessions are also secure and protected against intrusion from other users.
The Futro C400 has a footprint the size of a CD case and no moving parts, the unit is designed to use less power and be more energy efficient than other PC units. The computer also generates less heat and is totally silent in operation.
According to Fujitsu, if a device fails, it can be quickly replaced without the need for any manual reconfiguration, thereby minimising downtime and maximising productivity.
