Japan's Sugamo Shinkin Bank has selected IBM for the development of a virtual client environment, tapping Big Blue's desktop cloud.
The bank is migrating 900 PCs from its 45 sites to the new cloud environment, with the first 200 set to start using it this month and the rest shifted by the end of the year.
Previously, it needed to configure the PCs of 45 sites separately. The new system will only require an update on the virtual desktop environment via the server, and the data will be managed over the secure server, no longer stored on the client side.
This means that by using the 'Smart Business' cloud, Sugamo Shinkin Bank will improve security and significantly increase operational efficiency, claims the vendor.
