Huawei donates cloud-based computer to DepEd
Huawei, a well-known Chinese networking and telecommunications equipment company, has recently donated a cloud-based computer system to the Department of Education (DepEd).
This is made possible through the DepEd’s Adopt-a-School program (ASP) which gives private entities the opportunity to become active partners in providing assistance, either on a short–term or long–term basis to various concerns in public education.
Huawei’s Cloud-based Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) system consists of 50 terminal units composed only of monitor, keyboard, mouse, and adaptor. According to Huawei, the system can save energy and improve efficiency since the terminals do not need a CPU. The company also believes that it is an ideal platform to deliver learning modules to public schools.
The cloud-based computer system costs Php8 million and will be installed at the DepEd central office first for testing.
