NComputings ‘Office In a Box’ Offers Public Sector Offices and Departments Access to State-of-the-Art Technology at a Fraction of the Cost
Today's PCs are so powerful that the vast majority of applications only use a small fraction of a PC's capacity. Why not tap the unused capacity and share it among other users? Desktop virtualization provides an excellent alternative to the traditional “one PC per user” model enabling any business to design an IT infrastructure at significant cost savings while still meeting the computer performance demands of a growing business.
NComputing, a global leader in desktop virtualization, has recently launched “Office in a Box” in response to the growing need of small and medium sized offices to have access to their state-of- art office productivity solutions at a fraction of the cost.
The Office in a Box solution trumps the typical PC solution by enabling each end user to have a computing session without having to dedicate a desktop PC at each user’s desk. Office in a Box is an all-inclusive, pre-tested, and easy to deploy solution that can be right-sized to the requirements of an organisation, office or department and expanded in the future with modular add-ons like virtual desktop failover, storage and server virtualization infrastructure. Assessment and deployment services are also available through NComputing’s experienced partners.
The advanced desktop virtualization products that comprise Office in a Box provide an alternative to the traditional “one PC per user” model by allowing a single server to simultaneously support up to 60 users – with each running their own independent set of applications.
The value that Office in a Box can bring to offices includes:
• Reduced up-front PC acquisition costs by 75%
• Lowers maintenance and support costs by 75%
• Reduces power and cooling requirements by 90%
• Reduced risk resulting from device loss and theft
• Simple access to advanced cloud based applications and technology
Said Jim McHugh, SVP Marketing for NComputing, “The proliferation of PCs has become a financial and management constraint for organisations. Office in a Box utilizes our virtualization technology to address these challenges so that organisations can deploy solutions that help them focus on business advancement not technology issues.”
Office in a Box includes Host Server(s), vSpace™ Virtualization Software, OS licenses, NComputing virtual desktops and basic peripherals such as monitors, keyboards and mice. Solution add-ons are available for larger deployments such as virtual desktop failover, storage, and server virtualization infrastructure for scaling to support large populations.
