Unisys announces new range of advisory and cloud-based services
May 31, 2013 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) --
Unisys Corporation, a provider of IT services, software, and technology, has announced Unisys Workspace as a Service solutions, a range of advisory and cloud-based services for desktop virtualization - the transfer of certain functions from mobile as well as traditional fat-client devices to data center-and cloud-based resources.
The Unisys solutions enable enterprise clients to define and build a standardized, cost-efficient cloud-based desktop virtualization infrastructure based on EMC VSPEX and other leading virtualization architectures. The clients can manage that infrastructure with Unisys' assistance or on their own to deliver consistent cloud, device and application performance that keeps workers productive no matter where they are, the company said.
Unisys Workspace as a Service solutions comprise of: advisory services; solution design services; deployment and migration services; virtual desktop end-user management services; and desktop virtualization infrastructure management.
Unisys can help clients define and implement desktop virtualization infrastructure based on EMC VSPEX, VCE Vblock Systems, Citrix XenDesktop, VMware Horizon Suite and other leading architectures. The infrastructure can be deployed as a private cloud in the client's data center, managed by either Unisys or the client; as a hosted private cloud in a Unisys data center; or in a shared cloud environment.
On the end-user side, Unisys Workspace as a Service solutions enable client organizations to define distinct personas for specific groups of users based on their job profiles. The client can then determine what type of support each persona requires and which functions can be offloaded from their devices into the virtualized cloud environment.
Dan Huberty, chief technology officer of Unisys Global Managed Services, said: "The end-to-end approach we take to desktop virtualization empowers clients to impose order on a potentially chaotic IT environment. Unisys Workspace as a Service solutions start with end-user requirements and are designed to work compatibly with other cloud and enterprise data center offerings.
"As a result, we can give organizations extraordinary flexibility in their choice of cloud infrastructure models, greater consistency in end-user experience for a wide range of workers, heightened information security, and reduced infrastructure management and end-user support costs."
