Fujitsu FUTRO A300 Delivers Easy, Cost-Effective Access to Virtualised Desktops

Fujitsu UK & Ireland

London, January 12, 2012 Fujitsu today introduces the FUTRO A300 thin client, providing businesses with easy access to virtualised desktops. For enterprises attracted by the economic benefits of making the switch, the new entry-level Fujitsu model delivers a compelling value proposition, with total cost of ownership savings of up to 80% compared with standard desktop PCs.
Designed to enable simplified deployment, the Fujitsu FUTRO A300 provides a compelling reason for reshaping computing environments. In migrating from desktop PCs to the Fujitsu FUTRO A300 thin client, organisations of all sizes can cut upfront hardware costs, and enjoy across-the-board savings in maintenance and lifetime power consumption. The Fujitsu FUTRO A300 is also suitable for companies planning a switch to virtual desktop infrastructure-based workplace computing (VDI).
Fujitsu offers a fully-automated rollout and easy management of the FUTRO A300, thanks to full support from the powerful Scout Enterprise management software solution. In enabling simple, fast, out-of-the-box integration of thin clients into existing PC network infrastructures, Fujitsu is providing a significant advantage for businesses looking to deploy thin clients, but lacking the support staff or technical expertise to do so.

Built from high-grade components with no moving parts to ensure a long, trouble-free lifecycle, the Fujitsu FUTRO A300 is designed for high performance and high productivity. The thin client offers fast performance, a DVI-I port for the use of dual monitors, and supports state-of-the-art thin client operating systems, including eLux® RL and Windows® Embedded Compact 7. High-level power-saving components mean the Fujitsu FUTRO A300 uses 60% less power than a traditional PC, saving money on lifetime energy costs and enabling a greener operating environment.
Thanks to its compact design, the Fujitsu FUTRO A300 can be mounted behind the screen, saving desktop clutter and providing more usable desk space. And because it is silent in operation, the thin client contributes to a more pleasant work environment.
Craig Parker, head of product marketing at Fujitsu’s UK and Ireland Technology Products Group says: “We know that many companies want to take advantage of the many benefits of server-based computing but lack the resources or expertise to make the leap. With the new-generation Fujitsu FUTRO A300 thin client, we are making it simpler and more cost-effective than ever to make the switch.”
Fujitsu’s recent acquisition of UniCon Software GmbH, makers of the widely-used eLux® RL thin client operating system and the SCOUT Enterprise management software solution, underscores Fujitsu’s commitment to thin clients. Klaus Strassner, head of UniCon says: “In the cloud computing era, thin clients are proving themselves to be the ideal frontend for virtual desktops and the Fujitsu FUTRO A300 is a solid and stable device. When combined with our industry-leading Scout Enterprise management software solution and eLux® RL, it represents a step up to a new level of vitualised desktop computing.”
Fujitsu’s new FUTRO A300 thin client can be pre-ordered via Fujitsu SELECT channel partners and shipment begins in February.
