Today, Lenovo 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 organisations are modernising 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, revitalised their data centre with Lenovo and Nutanix to ensure high-quality patient services during a province-wide lockdown.
Secure Desktop Delivery with Cloud-Like Consumption Frees Up IT Resources
Data security continues to rank as the topmost time-consuming challenge among IT departments, especially in a remote work environment. Designed to support a breadth of industries, including healthcare, education and SMB, Lenovo’s TruScale for Hosted Desktops with Nutanix solutions provide cloud-like capabilities with infrastructure on premises, perfect for companies with data privacy compliance or regulatory concerns. Lenovo offers predictable costs through monthly billing to accelerate time-to-value and reduce upfront business expenses. The full solution is available immediately, which includes Lenovo ThinkAgile HX systems supported by software stacks in partnership with Nutanix and Citrix and Lenovo thin clients or PCs, all available via Lenovo TruScale as-a-service:
