Intel, Ruijie Networks jointly promote Cloud Desktop
The two vendors enhance mutual cooperation in IoT and desktop virtualisation
Chip maker Intel and China-based Ruijie Networks, recently promoted cloud desktop at the 2018 Intel IoT Executive and Solution Summit.
The summit saw over 150 partners participate at the event and discussed the developing trends of the Internet of Things (IoT) and artificial intelligence (AI).
As an important strategic partner of Intel, Ruijie Networks demonstrated the Cloud Office Bolt Edition based on intelligent desktop virtualisation (IDV) architecture. The concept of IDV, first introduced by Intel, enables better support for virtualisation through low-power CPU, achieving centralised management as well as distributed computation to significantly improve the performance of desktop virtualisation with the help of software that supports local virtualisation.
The joint innovation laboratory built by Intel and Ruijie also takes IDV research as one of its important subjects.
Hu Pengju, vice president, Ruijie Networks, said: "As strategic partners bearing close ties, Ruijie and Intel have been cooperating in a number of fields such as technology, business, commerce and market. We have been doing research and exploration in cloud desktop innovation and networking application development with customer needs taken into account." Pengju added that Intel and Ruijie Networks have mapped out and constructed new ecological scenarios, working together to develop highly competitive industry solutions.
"Cloud desktop is one of the key projects in the strategic cooperation between Intel and Ruijie," he said.
Qu Jingyang, product director of Cloud Office, Ruijie Networks said Cloud Desktop has two product portfolios, namely Cloud Class Plus and Cloud Office. "As we aim to lead the virtualised desktop market, Ruijie will iteratively update research and development of various products in conjunction with user scenarios, and will work with Intel to speed up exploration of technological innovation," Jingyang said. "Our aim is to assist users to eliminate existing bottlenecks and limitations in traditional PC applications through continuous evolution and optimisation of technology architecture."
