The new Thin Client VDI infrastructure at King Fahad Medical City is more efficient, significantly cost-effective, and highly reliable

"With FUJITSU thin clients we have a cost-effective, compact device with practically nothing to go wrong. At the same time, the performance is indistinguishable from a traditional PC, ensuring maximum productivity."

Mohammed A. Moawad IT Infrastructure Director, King Fahad Medical City

King Fahad Medical City has replaced its PC infrastructure with 1,000 FUJITSU Thin Clients FUTRO to deliver a more reliable and cost-effective approach.

The customer

Situated in the heart of Riyadh City, King Fahad Medical City (KFMC) is the largest and most advanced medical complex in the Middle East with a total capacity of 1,200 beds. This colossal medical facility was built at a cost of 2.3 billion Saudi Riyals and is comprised of four hospitals and four medical centers, which are expected to treat over 19,000 in-patients and almost 240,000 outpatients annually.

The challenge

KFMC’s estate of thousands of desktop PCs was proving costly, unreliable and a drain on maintenance resources. It wanted to find a more agile, flexible end-user device that would provide the necessary applications without compromising on performance.

The solution

The organization worked with Citrix and Fujitsu to replace its PC infrastructure with 1,000 Fujitsu Thin Clients FUTRO S900 supported by FUJITSU servers and storage in order to provide users with a virtualized desktop infrastructure.

The benefit

  • Fast, secure log-in from any device ensures maximum productivity
  • Minimal maintenance requirements reduce the burden on IT team
  • Low power consumption and compact form factor help lower costs
  • Performance is indistinguishable from traditional desktop PCs, even with demanding medical applications
