SHARED RESOURCE COMPUTING:KENYA AND EMEA NEXT EDUCATION GEM


Digital inclusion is an important learning tool for children and teenagers currently. This topic has become even more important in EMEA because of most countries’ economic gap and need to empower her youth digitally in readiness for an improved technological future.

Thinnetworks drastically reduces the cost of computing by allowing multiple people to simultaneously share a single computer and provides an ideal platform for the Microsoft Windows Multipoint Server. With over 1 million virtual desktops deployed in several countries, Thinetworks’ virtual desktops have transformed the way educators and businesses deliver computing resources.

As a Microsoft Gold Partner, Thinnetworks collaborated on early product testing, tuning and validation to ensure the best user experience possible. Microsoft WMS 2011 brings the Windows 7 computing experience to every student and productivity worker and powerful tools for administrators to simplify user setup and management, while Thinnetworks devices drastically reduces the cost of computing by allowing multiple people to simultaneously share a single computer. Thinnetworks offers the industry’s broadest support of Microsoft WMS 2011 in desktop virtualization environments including USB, PCI and Ethernet. As well as its Wee Client and Mini-point desktop virtualization devices, Thinnetworks vertical market ‘In A Box’ solutions including Classroom In a Box for education markets and Office In A Box for SMB markets will support Microsoft WMS 2011.

“Working together, Microsoft and Thinnetworks have delivered shared computing solutions that can help more students and teachers gain access to the latest technology and embrace “21st Century Skills” in the classroom. In the world of education, this means schools can advance higher learning and trim budgets at the same time. In fact, a recent Forrester study[1] commissioned by Microsoft showed that schools can triple their reach without increasing budget, thanks to a 66% reduction in the overall costs using Windows Multipoint Server 2011. With Windows Multipoint Server 2011 schools could expect to realize significant savings in hardware, energy consumption and costs, as well as in labor and maintenance.” Said Chris Phillips, General Manager, Windows Server and Solutions Division, Microsoft

“Thinetworks is uniquely positioned to expand the desktop virtualization market. We are accomplishing this through deepening our technology integration and go-to-market partnerships with key industry leaders such as Microsoft. When you combine Microsoft WMS 2011 and Thinetwork devices desktop environments, previously unviable desktop computing deployments are viable. In the world of education and SMBs, this better together advantage translates to being able to multiply computer access by 3 to 30 fold – for less, much less.”

Thinetworks has deployed 1 million virtual desktops in several countries. The company is a leading provider of virtualization in South American education market; it has virtualized desktop deployments in over 50,000 schools in Brazil; and has partnered with the Ministry of Education in Brazil to provide 400,000 virtual desktops in schools throughout the country to realize the country’s vision of a computer for every child. In addition to a significant installed base in education, Thinetworks is making major strides in market size, scale and scope of desktop virtualization deployments in SMB and large enterprise environments. Thinetworks is helping accelerate adoption of desktop virtualization through collaborative initiatives with Microsoft and Citrix, and looking to adopt strategic partnerships with OEMs and by partnering with IT resellers to provide ‘out of the box’ solutions comprising all the software infrastructure, hardware and services required for specific projects.
The EMEA markets offers an opportunity for major shared resource computing projects hence Thinnetworks venture to partner with distributor and project implementers.
Kenya ,Nigeria,South Africa , Ghana and Asia provide some of the greatest opportunities hence our underlying key goal to Partner with players in these Markets.
