Indonesian real estate developer Sinar Mas Land has embarked on a large virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) project and has engaged Dimension Data for the project.
According to a statement by the IT infrastructure solutions provider, the project will impact 1,500 users at Sinar Mas. Improved mobility, cost reduction and higher productivity are key goals of the VDI project.
"The VDI project will enable the real estate developer to reduce provisioning cycles from two weeks to two hours, achieve higher resource utilization, particularly storage infrastructure for back-office applications, and drive down the cost of desktop computing through better use of existing compute resources," said Dimension Data in a statement today.
"As a leading real estate developer with the most diversified portfolio in Indonesia, we face considerable IT operational challenges as our business expands," said Irvan Yasni, chief information officer, Sinar Mas Land. "We needed a new strategy that would enable us to stay competitive while enhancing our workforce mobility and productivity. We recognised the potential of desktop virtualisation as a tool to enable us to achieve our vision of a flexible user-centric desktop, and one that will enable us to provision new applications faster than currently possible in a uniform manner."
