Brent Council reduces IT power consumption by 80% through the use of desktop virtualisation
Fordway and Brent Council have implemented a virtualised desktop infrastructure which has reduced power consumption by more than 80%, saving money on electricity costs and significantly reducing the council’s carbon footprint. The solution supports flexible working for council staff, including home working and hotdesking, and enables the IT team to provide a better service for users while improving data security.
The new infrastructure is one of the many environmentally friendly features of the council’s new civic centre, which has been recognised as the greenest public building in the UK.
