According to Huawei, using a thin client program enables its engineers to access virtual desktops anytime, improving efficiency and work flow.

The company also said that the Huawei desktop Cloud also enhances information security as data is no longer stored on each PC, but on servers in the Cloud datacentre.

In addition, maintenance has become more efficient as each IT engineer is now able to manage more than 1000 virtual desktops, compared with 100 desktops previously.

Huawei estimates that as compared to conventional desktop technology, using a desktop Cloud can save businesses 30 per cent of a traditional investment and conserves 73 per cent in power consumption.
