NComputing Launches X350 Virtualization Kit

by CXOtoday Staff    Apr 17, 2009

With the surge in demand for ultra low-cost computing solutions brought in by the economic slowdown, NComputing has added a lower-cost, low-profile version of its popular X550 desktop virtualization kit.

The X350 kit is built to accommodate slim-line PCs and turns one PC into four virtual desktops, each delivering rich multimedia performance and full-screen video. It has a list price of $249. With a second X350 kit, a total of seven users can share a single PC.

As with all NComputing solutions, the X350 features the vSpace desktop virtualization software.

NComputing enables a single PC to be virtualized so that many users can tap the unused capacity and share it. Each user enjoys a full PC experience by connecting their monitor, keyboard and mouse to an NComputing device, which is then connected to the shared PC. Each X350 kit contains three NComputing XD2 devices and a low-profile PCI card that fits inside space-saving computers.

"The low cost of purchasing and maintaining NComputing made the decision to deploy simple, and we’re planning to expand and put NComputing into our testing lab as well," said Matt Kandefer, an IT supervisor at Altek Electronics.

The X350 is available now fromresellers around the globe.
