NComputing does 4 for 1 virtual desktops for cash strapped times

They said that 2009 would be the year where virtualisation goes beyond the data centre and hits the desktop. That said, NComputing's approach does sound quite different from that of Citrix and HP's desktop blades.

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

NComputing launches new X350 kit as adoption of its virtual desktops accelerates

Bangkok, April 24, 2009 – 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.

Built to accommodate popular slim-line PCs, the X350 kit, with a list price of THB3,900 per user, 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.

“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.”
