*NComputing tops in Asia Pacific for enterprising client device shipments*
*Karachi**, 25 October: *NComputing, a global leader in desktop virtualization, has been ranked 1 for enterprising client device shipments in Asia Pacific by International Data Corporation (IDC).
IDC’s Q2 2010 Worldwide Enterprise Client Devices Tracker ranked the company number 1 for its shipments record which stood at 25.2% share and fastest quarter on quarter growth at 50.2% (when combining the thin client and terminal client categories).
In Pakistan, NComputing technology has also been implemented by Government of Punjab recently in 4286 secondary schools benefiting 3.4 million students annually.
Desktop virtualization represents the most disruptive change in the economics of IT since the PC and NComputing is leading the transformation and making significant market traction in Asia Pacific and emerging markets which have been the fastest early adopters of desktop virtualization deployment.
The low cost of entry and significant on-going cost savings of NComputing solutions, including 75% lower maintenance and 90% lower energy costs, are proving hugely advantageous in both education and public sector organizations.
Punjab Govt. is reaping benefits of leveraging NComputing in its ITLabs project by saving more than Rs. 36 millions per year in terms of electricity bills only while it has also saved more than Rs. 1.8 billion in the upfront cost of the project.
Meanwhile, the company’s L300 virtual desktop is being rapidly adopted in commercial enterprises as a result of features including full-motion multi-media playback and PC like performance, fast and simple deployment, and powerful management tools.
“In less than three years, we have deployed over 350,000 virtual desktops in the Indian subcontinent and over 100,000 in ASEAN region.” Said Manish Sharma, NComputing’s Vice President for Asia Pacific.
“We are proud of this achievement. It doesn’t just represent our success. It also represents the success of our customers who are leading the world and providing the blue-print for successful desktop virtualization deployment.”
“To date, many of the large global PC and chip manufacturers have been barriers to the mainstream adoption of desktop virtualization because of their economic interest and legacy investment in the old ‘PC per desktop’ centric IT infrastructure by maintaining artificially high prices. NComputing’s dramatic success demonstrates the truly disruptive economics of virtual desktops when naturally priced; reducing all client related costs by 50% or more compared to traditional PCs, commented NComputing CEO Stephen Dukker.
“We are putting the ‘old guard’ on notice that desktop virtualization is ready to go mainstream. NComputing has and will continue to lead in this space and deliver on our promise of transforming the economics of computing.”
