HP Helps Customers Rethink the PC With New Thin Computing Solutions

PALO ALTO, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — November 16, 2009 — Expanding the application of thin clients in new computing environments, HP (NYSE: HPQ) today introduced a variety of thin computing solutions that deliver affordable, simple computing experiences for business and education, as well as integrated client virtualization solutions that extend the power of the data center to the desktop.

Extending HP’s industry-leading thin computing portfolio, the new solutions include:

  • HP thin client platforms designed to optimize the end-user experience for client virtualization by delivering higher performance and remarkable ease of use.
  • HP client virtualization solutions that provide a high-quality user experience and increased scalability and reliability in a secure environment at a breakthrough price.
  • HP MultiSeat solution that can double computing seats without expanding IT budgets for smaller computing environments, with simple set up and low energy use.

In addition to HP MultiSeat, HP introduced specifically tailored, easy-to-manage education solutions – HP TeachNow and HP SchoolCloud – that make it easier to teach with technology while reducing overall costs.

“Businesses and educational institutions are looking for alternatives to traditional personal computing, such as client virtualization or multiseat computing, to centralize management and increase security, while reducing their total cost of ownership,” said Robert Moctezuma, vice president, Desktop Solutions Organization, Personal Systems Group, HP. “Customers recognize HP is the only provider that can design, deploy and manage complete thin computing and client virtualization solutions – from the desktop to the data center – that meet IT and user needs.”

Customers cut costs and increase efficiencies with HP

New York-based JetBlue Airways needed a way to cut long-term costs for airport-based technology and improve security. The airline installed nearly 1,400 HP thin clients, which were supported by JetBlue’s central data center and backed by 25 HP ProLiant server blades. Today, more than 12,000 JetBlue crew members use the HP thin clients at curbside check-in, ticket counters, and gate and back office locations at airports.

“In terms of maintenance and cost-effectiveness, the ‘thick client’ model simply wasn’t sustainable for us. We realized it was critical to increase efficiency and manageability to drive down costs,” said Pat Thompson, director, IT Operations, JetBlue Airways. “Our decision to deploy HP Thin Clients is expected to save nearly $5 million over five years, while improving customer satisfaction.”
