NComputing has long been the go-to company for minimalism when it comes to cost, complexity and, yes, energy consumption. In fact, over the years, many of our customers around the world have won "Green" awards for energy savings simply by buying and using our products instead of someone else's. Now we have won India's top award for Green IT.
There are two technologies available to SMBs to deliver a centrally hosted Windows desktop experience to their users: Remote Desktop Services (RDS) or Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI). RDS uses session virtualization to allow many users to log into the same instance of a Windows server OS and get a Windows desktop experience. VDI uses machine virtualization to allow multiple copies of a Windows desktop OS to run concurrently on the same physical server using a hardware abstraction layer called a hypervisor.
NComputing has named co-founder and longtime board member Young Song as its new CEO. Young brings over 20 years of technology vision and entrepreneurial leadership with a focus on products that deliver life-enhancing value to education, business and consumers.
Fall is upon us again, and in North America that means one thing: playoff season in Major League Baseball. At NComputing, we’d usually be watching on the sidelines like (almost) everyone else, but this year we began working on an exciting project with our friends at Tickets.com who provide ticketing for all the Major League Baseball clubs (and many other sporting and arts venues).
XP Migration Made Easier
There are still lots of organizations using Windows XP on user desktop computers. According to NetNarketShare.com, a service of Net Applications, market share of Windows XP just recently dropped below 25%. But this means there are still lots of Windows XP PCs in the field.
According to users who participated in a poll during our recent webinar on XP migration, half of those users are in organizations where 26% or more of their desktop PCs are still running Windows XP.
Desktop virtualization can be expensive. Everyone knows and understands that. But in spite of the often hefty price tag, we deploy it because we know that at the end of the day it’s going to yield more benefits than staying with the status quo of distributed PCs. But, what happens when organizations take the plunge into desktop virtualization but leave those distributed PCs as glorified thin clients to access a user’s virtual desktop and applications? Well, they’re basically throwing money down the toilet.
