BANKING & FINANCE

“We introduced the virtual desktop with the aim to secure the aggregation ratio and the required degree of security. VMware is an excellent support vendor and reliable business partner to us.”

Mr. Jun Nishii, General Manager of Systems Infrastructure Dept. No.3, Mitsubishi UFJ Information Technology Co., Ltd

“The virtual desktop is very easy to use and well received by our sta. The VMware software is running smoothly and I have great trust in it. I look forward to a long- term relationship with VMware.”

Mr. Shiro Sawada, Manager of the Systems Division, The Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ, Ltd.

Mr. Jun Nishii, Director of Infrastructure Division 3 of Mitsubishi UFJ Information Technology noted, “Not only was VMware’s Japan oce involved, we were pleased that engineers from the U.S. and England also provided direct support and cooperation. Besides being confident about VMware’s product reliability, I also appreciate their strong commitment to a long-term relationship with their business partners.”

Improved Usability Extends Scale of Possible Future Deployment In December 2009, a virtual desktop environment based on VMware View went ‘live’, with each server running 83 to 86 terminals with the virtual desktop, and a total of 3,000 terminals across the entire environment. Mr. Shiro Sawada, Manager of the Systems Division, The Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ, said, “Usually, conventional PC terminals take a long time to start up and accept user logon, before being operational. The virtual desktop, on the other hand, can be operated immediately after the hardware is powered on, as the virus scanning and pattern file updates are done by the server during the night, thus enabling us to switch connections between dierent domains quickly and easily. In addition, even when we sit at another desk, we can log on easily to continue working on the task started on another terminal.”

Pleased with the ease of use and enhanced employee satisfaction, The Bank of Tokyo- Mitsubishi UFJ named the new virtual desktop environment, “Desktop Everywhere”. “When providing OA services,” Mr. Tokunaga explained, “one vital factor is to ensure end-user usability, while making sure that system management functions such as information security and anti-virus measures are being delivered. Although we had previously evaluated other devices designed to improve usability, we ultimately chose to power our virtual environment with VMware View and thin-client terminals.” VMware View provides the bank with another advantage: With the impending termination of Windows XP support by end 2013, the bank will be freed from having to upgrade the operating system, browser, and other software on each separate PC - as all the necessary work would be done on the servers.

With these improvements, the bank intends to replace the OA PCs in their oces with thin-client terminals supporting the virtual desktop environment. As part of the migration to the virtual desktop environment, considerations are also made to migrate their software to the virtual desktop environment with application virtualization technology.
