Boost for ‘thin’ channel
US-based thin client computing vendor establishes Middle East facility to aid regional system integrators.
One of the market's top thin client computing vendors has opened up an operational facility in the Middle East that it promises will focus on empowering its systems integrator partner network.
AT Labs, a Silicon Valley company that develops thin client appliance alternatives to PCs and claims to have installed over 100,000 units worldwide, has set up the hub in Dubai as it continues to push the server-centric computing message. The company says a dedicated application engineering team will assist local system integration partners to implement centralised application data centres for secure and well-managed access to enterprise information.
"Enterprise, government and education sectors can now benefit from reduced cost of IT asset management while securing access to their applications over internet," said Mustaq Mahmood, director of business development at AT Labs' Dubai office.
The vendor has enjoyed a number of success stories in the Middle East market. Thin client solutions have been deployed at the UAE Amed Forces, Al Mewahib School and the Institute of Applied Technology.
In addition to establishing the UAE operational centre, AT Labs is bidding to enhance its current portfolio of wireless thin client products. The vendor claims that thin client notebooks bring maximum security while reducing the cost of maintenance.
