Global Innovative Workspace Solution expands company's data centre offering

Paris/Berlin, 04 October 2012 - NextiraOne, Europe's leading expert in communications services, has launched its 'Smart VXI' next generation Desktop Virtualisation Solution. Based on the concept of "any information - any time - anywhere," the new NextiraOne end-to-end solution is focused on mid-to-large enterprises as well as Government, public and healthcare sectors. It is built on certified design architecture and technology platforms from leading technology providers including CISCO, NetApp, EMC, VMware View and Citrix. NextiraOne works closely with these partners to deliver powerful communications solutions including data centre and cloud implementations for its customers.

"Our customers see Desktop Virtualisation as a strategic imperative, not a tactical move," says Aman Khan, European Managing Director Data Centre and Cloud Business at NextiraOne. "Data security, compliance, support for a remote and mobile workforce and easy management of diverse end-user devices are some of the key drivers for desktop virtualisation projects, along with migration to Microsoft Windows 7. In our view from working with a wide range of customers, the key to the success of any desktop virtualisation project is the end-user experience. Therefore, our Smart VXI solution enables all kinds of end-user devices - such as PCs, laptops, tablets, smartphones, audio and video systems and the associated applications - to connect with each other effectively"

The NextiraOne Smart VXI solution is designed to significantly improve individual productivity, increase efficiency within IT Management and also improve energy utilisation. NextiraOne is able to offer this end-to-end Private Cloud solution globally through its extensive sales organisation in 16 countries in Europe and the USA.

The new solution represents an expansion in NextiraOne's growing Data Centre portfolio, delivered internationally to customers in cooperation with its eco-partners. "Virtualisation and Cloud is not the end of this process," adds Aman Khan. "This is a continued journey of constant improvement as our customers move to higher levels of virtualisation in their data centres. Our role, with our experts, is to accompany our customers throughout this journey, delivering further cost and efficiency benefits."

Notes to Editors

Smart VXI - The Innovative Next Generation Workspace Solution by NextiraOne
Businesses today require the workspaces they create to be mobile. These workspaces must be able to move with employees as they travel nationally or internationally. They need a secure solution that enables them to access any information, anywhere, anytime, and that integrates the different communication media they are using. Employees expect device independence, the so-called BYOD (Bring Your Own Device). And last but not least businesses want solutions that optimise their energy utilisation.

These requirements create significant challenges for IT departments, particularly in ensuring the protection of corporate data and preventing data leakage or loss through any combination of user, endpoint device, and desktop access scenarios. These challenges are compounded by the need for desktop refresh cycles to accommodate aging PCs and the limits of local storage, plus the migration to new operating systems, specifically Microsoft Windows 7.

What Is the NextiraOne Smart VXI Solution?
NextiraOne's Smart VXI is an end-to-end solution that delivers applications to an entire organisation through a converged infrastructure based on state-of-art technologies.

It is an enterprise-wide virtual workspace deployment that spans data centre, network, and collaboration architectures together with planning, design services, and support, all from one source. The end result is a flexible, highly secure, and efficient infrastructure that meets a diverse set of user needs.

As a vendor-independent organisation, NextiraOne is able to bring together best-in-breed technologies for networking, computing, and storage as well as end-user devices and applications, notably from CISCO, Citrix, VMware, EMC and NetApp. Customers are able to deploy these technologies in their own data centres or outsource them as required. One key element of this solution is that it ensures integration between voice, data and video. NextiraOne designs, implements and manages these complete solutions on behalf of customers, including the following aspects:

  • The proliferation of endpoint devices and mobile work environments

  • BYOD & cost reduction programs

  • Security, compliance, and business continuity challenges

  • Simplification of Infrastructure and change management

  • Rapid Infrastructure Deployment.

  • Reduced the total cost of desktop (TCO).

  • Access via multiple devices, anytime, anywhere.

  • Scalable to meet changing business demand.

  • Increased workforce productivity.
