Yesterday Fujitsu Laboratories Limited announced that it has developed new high-speed technology for thin clients that will improve responsiveness by as much as ten times. This development should lead to faster user operations, even in low-quality network environments, and when using a mobile connection.
Working in a cloud-based virtual desktop environment, system responsiveness has conventionally been poor. This is most evident when client terminals access the virtual desktop environment to use video or graphics-heavy applications. The current limitations can make it difficult to use these types of applications, and sometimes even out right impossible if the network infrastructure is not up to par. Using Fujitsu Laboratories new high-speed thin-client technology response times can be lowered by up to 90%. This makes it possible to develop new thin client applications, such as international video-based employee training, remote operation of internal applications that can be connected via tablets even using a mobile connection overseas.
