Air Products decided to refresh more than 18,000 employee client systems worldwide to upgrade the operating system and take advantage of the latest processing technologies. The IT group selected desktops and laptops with Intel® Core™ i5 and i7 vPro™ processors running Microsoft Windows* 7. Administrators expect Intel® vPro™ technology will help them resolve more software-related issues remotely, while security technologies from Intel will help protect data stored on client systems and the network. The new processors will also help deliver the performance for a full range of tasks, from running productivity software to conducting processor-intensive engineering simulations, while preparing the enterprise for desktop virtualization.
“Intel vPro technology will enable us to access system files before the OS boots, which should help us resolve a greater percentage of software problems remotely,” explained Bob Elward, director of infrastructure engineering for Air Products.
