NComputing Builds on Ultra Low-Cost Computing Success with New X-series Desktop Virtualization Kit

  • 16 April, 2009 16:00

<p>New X-series Desktop Virtualization Kit <br/><br/> <strong>Sydney, Australia </strong>- <strong>April 16, 2009</strong> - The global
economic slowdown is driving a surge of sales in ultra low-cost computing. And
now NComputing, the market leader, has added another compelling offering to its
award-winning X-series product line. The new X350 is designed specifically for
organizations that want to economically and efficiently add users for the lowest
cost and best performance. <br/>
Built to accommodate popular slim-line PCs, the X350 kit, with a Recommended Retail
Price of A$475, turns one PC into four virtual desktops – each delivering
rich multimedia performance and full-screen video. With a second X350 kit, a total
of seven users can share a single PC. The X350 is a lower-cost, low-profile version
of the highly successful NComputing X550, which supports up to 11 users on a full-sized
PC. And like all NComputing solutions, the X350 features the award-winning NComputing
vSpace™ desktop virtualization software. <br/>
“Now more than ever, customers need to lower their computing costs,”
said Stephen Dukker, CEO and chairman of NComputing. “Customer IT and finance
departments agree that NComputing delivers the performance their users need while
saving money today and in long-term maintenance and energy costs. The X350 continues
our tradition of unmatched computing value.” <br/>
The NComputing solution is based on a simple fact: today’s PCs are so powerful
that the vast majority of applications use only a small fraction of the computer’s
capacity. NComputing enables a single PC to be virtualized so that many users
can tap the unused capacity and share it as if each person had their own computer.
Each user enjoys a full PC experience by connecting their own monitor, keyboard
and mouse to an NComputing device, which is then connected to the shared PC. Each
X350 kit contains three NComputing XD2 devices and a low-profile PCI card that
fits inside space-saving computers. Unlike other desktop virtualization solutions,
the patented and highly-efficient X350 delivers rich multimedia and full-screen
video. <br/>
“The low cost of purchasing and maintaining NComputing made the decision
to deploy simple, and we’re planning to expand and put NComputing into our
testing lab as well,” said Matt Kandefer, an IT supervisor at Altek Electronics.
“Now, our technical and factory teams can quickly and easily get at the
information they need. We couldn’t have done this without NComputing.”
The X350 is available now from authorised Australian NComputing resellers and
distributors . In less than two years, NComputing has sold more than one million
seats, making it the largest provider of ultra-low-cost computing solutions. NComputing’s
simplicity and ease of use have contributed to rapid worldwide acceptance: anyone
with basic PC skills can install an NComputing solution and the savings are immediate.
Over 40,000 organizations in 140 countries have deployed NComputing to slash their
computing costs and electric consumption. Each access device uses just one watt
of electricity, compared to 110 for a standalone PC, making NComputing the greenest
computing solution on earth.<br/>
