2008 Winner Profile

VocaLink

Project Description:
VocaLink processes domestic and international automated payments and provides ATM switching solutions. It was one of the first companies in the U.K. to deploy virtualization across the entire desktop, using a new operating environment called Softgrid (since purchased by Microsoft). VocaLink then engaged with key suppliers to create a leading-edge technology stack that lifted virtualization technology into both a server-based computing and virtual desktop infrastructure environment. Benefits include improved user experience, increased security, reduced infrastructure and hardware costs, and a smaller carbon footprint in the data center and on the desktop.
