Axon debuts virtual desktop for Windows 7

Axon believes it is the only local company offering a full virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) service for Windows 7, which allows customers to use their older desktops and thin clients without replacing hardware.

“Our shared customers tell us other service providers have not begun to talk to them about using VDI technologies to get a speedy, low-cost transition to Windows 7,” says marketing and services delivery manager James Walls.

“There’s a misconception that Windows 7 requires extensive infrastructure upgrading and that moving to it is a big project, with large associated time and cost implications. That’s simply not the case.”

Windows 7 is installed as a virtual application on any existing desktop — thick or thin — by way of a web browser, he says.

“This slashes the time, cost and risk of moving to the new operating system. A business can check user experience, management of existing applications and integration with existing infrastructure before they make strategic decisions about Windows 7.

“This is pure gold for companies considering their deployment strategy.”

Axon has provisioned a lab facility that allows live demonstrations of VMware and Citrix VDI solutions. It uses an HP T5730 terminal to deliver Windows 7, including high-definition video streaming, iPod synching, twin screens and desktop video conferencing.
