IT Services currently supply a basic Lenovo research workstation for those performing more complex computational tasks and who require some extra power. Full details of these workstations can be found in the ITS Extended Catalogue. ITS are now seeking the views of researchers on these workstations and if they meet their needs.
There are a number of advantages to having a standard workstation: IT Services can keep it in stock and deliver quickly, they know the equipment and can support it better, and provide an efficient, secure managed desktop.
IT Services would like to know what your thoughts are on the current Workstation specification, what you think would make a good baseline research workstation in future and if you know of any future trends in this area you think IT Services should be aware of. Any comments in this area would be valuable. Please email David Benko (Business Relationship Manager, IT Services) by the 20th of April.
