Lenovo offers TruScale on-prem hosted desktop as a service


Lenovo has announced Lenovo TruScale for Hosted Desktops with Nutanix to deliver hosted desktops as a service on-premises.

Lenovo TruScale for Hosted Desktops with Nutanix provides Lenovo ThinkAgile HX software-defined infrastructure running Nutanix cloud platform software, a choice of Lenovo thin clients and PCs, and a choice of Citrix and other virtual desktop environments, all licensed to the end user and managed as a service with monthly billing.

According to Lenovo, TruScale for Hosted Desktops with Nutanix solutions provide cloud-like capabilities with infrastructure on premises, making it perfect for companies with data privacy compliance or regulatory concerns.

Other benefits are said to include reduced costs as Lenovo's services team handles configuration, migration, ongoing management, and end-of-life asset removal.

"Many organisations are modernising their IT infrastructures to support the growing demands remote work continues to place on their IT systems," said Lenovo Group executive vice president and president of infrastructure solutions group Kirk Skaugen.

"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."

Nutanix ANZ channel director David Gage said "Australian organisations overwhelmingly believe the hybrid workplace is here to stay, so much so that our latest Enterprise Cloud Index report found only two per cent of local business leaders expect a full return to the office by 2022 when the pandemic is expectantly behind us.

"With workers dispersed, the surface area attackers can exploit is larger than it has ever been and partners need to ensure their customers' critical data is kept secure while enabling remote access. With cloud-like capabilities and infrastructure on-premises, our end-to-end hosted Desktop-as-a-Service solution with Lenovo securely supports the hybrid worker – wherever they may be."

Lenovo infrastructure solutions group ANZ general manager Nathan Knight said "As companies tackle the requirements that continued remote work, place on their IT systems, there is a growing need for infrastructure solutions that can support this hybrid workforce now and in the future.

"We are seeing a definite trend towards as-a-service models where customers want to offset the investment associated with an IT upgrade without compromising on outcomes. Lenovo's collaboration with Nutanix provides businesses with a more secure, Hosted Desktop as-a-service solution that is easy to deploy and manage with minimal up-front costs."

Lenovo TruScale for Hosted Desktops with Nutanix is available immediately.
