At present, 300 virtual machines are deployed on the new agency-wide shared infrastructure. “After the deployment of VDI, the staff was able to access the resident information database directly from their desks, greatly reducing the time to respond to inquiries from residents. We feel that this improvement in the speed and quality of service for residents is the greatest result of the deployment of VDI,” says Ebi Makoto, Information Systems Section, General Affairs Department.
As for the impact of deploying Deep Security, Matsumoto says,“We manage the VDI by linking clones using master image. Deep Security with agentless technology is highly compatible with this method, and yields high operational efficiency. If we adopt agent-based security software, we need to create the master image with the agent included. In operations, we would have to update the pattern files regularly on the master image and need more management time. As expected, with Deep Security, there have been no claims from our staff about PC performance and startup time.
Sakura city secured its VDI environment and the new virtualized shared infrastructure with Deep Security. The city will continue to utilize technology to better services for its residents while ensuring safety and reliability. Trend micro will continue to support the city’s goals and help solve its challenges.
