NComputing Proving First-to-Market HDX Ready SoC Thin Client Technology Is Accelerating Virtual Desktop Adoption
BARCELONA, SPAIN and REDWOOD CITY, CA, Oct 15, 2012 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) --
-- Major European Enterprises Accelerate Migration to Virtual Computing
based on N-series HDX-Ready SoC Technology
-- Customers Replacing PC Infrastructure with New NComputing N-series HDX
Ready SoC Thin Clients
-- New N-series Products Enable Channel Partners to Aggressively Target
New Markets for Virtual Computing
NComputing, the world leader in end-to-end desktop virtualization
solutions, today reported on how quickly European enterprises are now
migrating to Citrix-based virtual desktop infrastructure as a result
of the availability of its first-to-market HDX-Ready System-on-Chip
(SoC) thin clients launched in May 2012. These customers are
specifically taking advantage of the simplicity of deployment,
ongoing manageability and breakthrough price/performance of
NComputing's N-series solutions that was previously unavailable in
HDX-capable endpoint alternatives.
These rapid early deployments of N-series devices in Europe follow
similar success in other international markets. This clearly
demonstrates how the new breed of HDX Ready SoC solution is driving
an increased rate of thin client adoption for Citrix HDX environments
globally in many diverse verticals including healthcare, financial
institutions, higher education, manufacturing and many others.
Since launching the N-series in May 2012, NComputing has seen a wide
array of customers that have now been able to start and complete
their implementation of virtual desktop infrastructures and deliver a
quality HDX user experience with the combined N-series and Citrix
Among the European industrial enterprises selecting N-series
technology is major Swiss building and constructions materials group
KIBAG AG, which is working with NComputing's DACH regional partner
Conapro GmbH to replace its PC infrastructure with N500 clients.
Other European industrial products and manufacturers are turning to
NComputing N-series technology to migrate to virtual computing.
Excelsior Technology is a world-class UK manufacturer of packaging
solutions for global brands. Working with NComputing partner
Vitalise, this fast growing company is deploying a Citrix VDI-
in-a-Box solution utilising NComputing N400 thin clients at its main
polymer production and manufacturing site, which is 80 miles from the
company's main office.
Spanish shipbuilders Factorias Vulcano also has implemented an
N-series virtual computing solution working with NComputing's Iberian
partner Ozona. Fernando Vazquez, director de Sistemas, Factorias
Vulcano, said, "NComputing's N400 has the best quality/price ratio on
the market. In addition, the ease of integration immediately into our
existing systems with zero downtime has delivered immediate ROI. End
user acceptance has been unanimous."
The new N-series products are enabling NComputing European channel
partners to aggressively target and open other new markets for
virtual computing. For example NComputing's Italian partner ITATIS
reports on a major deployment in the professional services space.
In addition to new market sectors, NComputing is experiencing strong
demand for the N-series across its traditional public sector and
education markets, including new higher education clients.
NComputing is running real world N-series demonstrations and
presentations at Stand 202 in the Citrix Solution Expo at Citrix
Synergy Barcelona (17th-19th October 2012).
"The incredible enthusiasm of our European channel
and customers in embracing our new HDX solutions so quickly is
testament to how we have reinvented the thin client to transform how
enterprises approach virtual computing," said Raj Dhingra, CEO,
NComputing. "What's particularly striking about the new deployments
is how enterprises that previously resisted VDI are now migrating
because the N-series gives the superior options on price and
performance for task and knowledge workers that other alternatives
"Having an efficient way to replace our existing PC infrastructure
was a top priority," said Christian Schollenberger, CIO of KIBAG AG.
"The NComputing clients offer great graphics performance for CAD and
very low power consumption allowing us to reduce the energy cost by
over 80 percent. The easy-to-use management and the lower acquisition
costs means the N500 is making our move to XenDesktop both cost
effective and successful."
"We were looking for a solution to deliver a superior end user
computing experience while simplifying management of IT at a remote
site," said Mark Beresford, IT Manager, Excelsior Technology. "The
combination of high performance and affordability made the N-series a
natural choice and we're looking forward to how these devices
optimise VDI in a Box for my team and the end users we support."
"We're finding that the N-series is helping us develop and extend the
desktop virtualisation market significantly here in Italy," said
Giampiero Aldo Zanvettor, CEO -- CISM, ITATIS. "Among the major
implementations in progress is at a leading Italian international law
firm where the N-series HDX-ready SoC technology meets the high
performance needs of very demanding knowledge workers at a cost that
overcame the financial obstacles for our client to migrate to VDI on
a major scale."
