NComputing technology virtualizes a user’s desktop computing experience so that it can be accessed in a variety of ways. For example, multiple users can connect to their own virtual desktops that are all running on a single computer. Small NComputing access devices connect users either directly or over a long distance to the computer hosting their virtual desktop. These devices use just 1 to 5 watts of electricity —compared to 110 watts or more for a standalone PC—reducing electric bills, cooling costs, and carbon emissions.
NComputing continues to expand its lineup of innovative solutions with the introduction of the industry’s first USB-connected virtual desktop client. The new U170 plugs into a computer’s USB 2.0 port, and with vSpace, enables additional users to share that computer.
The new NComputing vSpace software builds on four generations of efficient, scalable desktop virtualization software for multiuser and remote computing. The new vSpace adds support for Microsoft Windows Server 2008, Windows Vista, and Windows 7. vSpace 5 is available in beta today and will be released in mid-November.
