MUMBAI: IT consulting and software services providerGeometric today said it has implemented a virtual desktop based on VXI cloud architecture withCisco,NetApp and Citrix technologies to reduce operational costs.

Virtualisation Experience Infrastructure (VXI) architecture is a service-optimised desktop virtualisation platform that can deliver any application to any device in any workplace environment and provide IT with additional security and control, Geometric said in a filing to theBombay Stock Exchange.

The deployment will allow Geometric employees to access their server-hosted virtual desktop from anywhere and from a broad range of devices, with the cloud infrastructure also helping to drive business productivity and reduced operating costs, the filing added.

"This solution allows our employees to work from anywhere, at any time, using any device of their choice, without affecting security or performance. Moreover, it also reduces the time and effort needed for provisioning and maintenance of computing resources," Geometric Director IT Solutions and Services Prashanta Ghoshal said.

A cost reduction of $ 27,000 is anticipated with the deployment of 600 desktops. The company has already achieved significant benefits by an initial deployment of 250 desktops, which will further improve with scale.

Shares of Geometric were trading at Rs 50.45 on the BSE, no change from the previous close.
