Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Outsourcing giant, EDS, is investing £2 million over five years to support an arts-based urban generation project in Salford, Greater Manchester. The Lowry Project, named after the Salford artist, is a development which includes an art centre, two theatres, three art galleries, and a number of restaurants and bars. The site is based in the Salford Quays area of the city, which was the site of much rejuvenation in the late 1980s. The total cost of the redevelopment is £170 million. EDS will provide IT infrastructure and services as part of the £400,000 per year partnership. The investment will centre on the Lowry Centre's Digital World Centre, part of the exhibition which will enable people visiting the centre to see IT equipment in use and view next generation technology. The Digital World Centre will also host post graduate research projects run by Salford University. The Lowry Centre has been singled out to be the National Landmark Millennium Project for the Arts.®
