NComputing customers in India are deploying some of largest and most innovative virtual desktop infrastructures in the world. For example, the company has made a huge wave in education, providing ICT to millions of children who otherwise would not have access to these important skills development and learning tools. NComputing is the de-facto standard for education in the majority of Indian states like Andhra Pradesh where 50, 000 NComputing virtual desktops are deployed in 5,000 schools to benefit 1.8 million children. The company recently announced success with Indian state education ministries of Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan, Bihar and Maharashtra.

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 vSpace virtualization software taps the unused capacity in a PC and shares it among multiple users as if each person had their own computer. Each person enjoys a full PC experience by connecting their own monitor, keyboard and mouse to an NComputing access device, which is then connected to the shared PC. The access devices snap into place in minutes, are almost impossible to break, and save on maintenance costs because only the shared PC requires ongoing service or upgrade. The devices use just 1 to 5 watts of electricity which also reduces the need for air-conditioning and qualifies many educational institutions schools and organisations for substantial energy-efficiency rebates.
