Desktop virtualization: NEC's demo of VPCC (Virtual PC Center)


The next generation Virtual PC Center (VPCC) will be on display at the NEC Computers stand (E90) which will showcase NEC's latest desktop VPCC terminal, the US110, and the new ultra-compact mobile thin client, the TCM270. The VPCC is NEC's fully integrated virtualisation offering for fixed or mobile PCs and is ideal for an education environment. The many benefits of VPCC include large power savings, increased functionality, cost-effectiveness and enhanced manageability of IT systems.

NEC's VPCC solution allows hundreds of users to work on "virtual PCs" that are connected to a centralised server through a small terminal that has no moving parts, consumes 77% less power than conventional PCs and can be mounted on the back of a monitor to maximise desk space. The US110 also includes accelerated multimedia to provide users with enhanced use of multimedia applications. The end-user experience is as close to that of a conventional PC as possible, whilst enabling the centralised management of hundreds of workstations from a single remote server. A particularly important factor for the education market is that the desktop terminal is low-cost, does not store any information in it and will not work as a standalone unit, so it will only function if it is connected to its server.

Cloud Security: Eliminate humans from the "Information Supply Chain on the Web"

My upcoming article, part - 3 data center predictions for 2009, has a slideshot talking about the transition from the current age to the cloud computing age to eventually the ideation age- the age where you will have clouds that will emote but they will have no internal employees.

Biggest management disasters occur because internal folks are making a mess of the playground.

Om's blog is carrying an article about Cloud security and it is rather direct but also makes a lot of sense:

I don’t believe that clouds themselves will cause the security breaches and data theft they anticipate; in many ways, clouds will result in better security. Here’s why: Fewer humans –Most computer breaches are the result of human error; only 20-40 percent stem from technical malfunctions. Cloud operators that want to be profitable take humans out of the loop whenever possible.Better tools – Clouds can afford high-end data protection and security monitoring tools, as well as the experts to run them. I trust…
