NTT Communications www.ntt.com recently began jointly field-testing a network-based PC desktop environment on a cloud platform that it expects to launch within the current fiscal year, which ends next March. The test is planned to last until August.
The envisioned cloud platform is named Setten, the Japanese word for “contact point” or “interface.”
A total of 15 organizations, including logistics companies, educational institutes, non-profit organizations and other global operators, are jointly testing the platform as an alternative to conventional PC-embedded desktop environments.
The aim is to provide a globally accessible, network-based desktop environment for greater efficiency, convenience and system availability.
The field test will also confirm system operability, identify any difficulties and study candidate SaaS applications.
