Malaysia’s Ministry of Education was recognized for “Transforming IT by Defying Convention” with its deployment of 25,000 virtual desktops at 1,250 schools across the country with VMware Horizon™ and Teradici PCoIP Zero Client devices as part of a national effort to modernize education and bridge the urban-rural digital divide. The investment in virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) technology has given school children access to high-quality computing and digital education resources – regardless of location, connectivity or end-user device – in some cases for the very first time.

“The 2014 VMware Innovation Awards recognize organizations that have implemented new technologies to increase collaboration and drive innovation during the past year,” said Dan Cordingley, president and CEO of Teradici. “We’re delighted to congratulate Malaysia’s Ministry of Education in recognition of their inventive use of virtual desktop technology to make a lasting impact on the lives of school children in Malaysia – and to transform the educational experience for students, teachers and administrators alike.”

Applicant submissions were evaluated according to strict criteria1 by a panel of experts from Computerworld and VMware, which selected five winning organizations – California Natural Resources Agency, Indiana University, Ministry of Education, Malaysia, TIAA-CREF IT Production Services and U.S. Navy Medicine/SpaWar.

About the Malaysia Ministry of Education Virtual Desktop Deployment

The Ministry has established an ambitious vision for preschool through university education in the Malaysia Education Blueprint, 2013-2025. Expected to impact approximately six million students at 10,000 schools, its goal is to improve educational outcomes for Malaysian students, advance the country’s overall competitiveness in the global labor market, and bring educational parity to urban-rural schools.

Together with Bitara Induk, a leading systems integrator, Teradici and VMware collaborated to assist the Malaysian Government in fulfilling its vision. As of March 2014, students, teachers and administrators gained access to desktops, applications and data using virtual desktop infrastructure. With minimal onsite IT setup or modification to the classroom environment, high-performance computing and educational resources are delivered to students and teachers across devices – even in rural and inland areas with limited access to connectivity and electricity.

Educational resources are now shared among these schools, and IT administrators have been empowered to manage, secure, and broker services to students and staff in accordance with Ministry policies. See the Malaysia Ministry of Education Media Kit for full deployment details.
