- NComputing Inks OEM Agreement With Europe's Leading Computer Company

NComputing, a global leader in desktop virtualization, announced it has signed an OEM relationship with Fujitsu Technology Solutions. Fujitsu will integrate NComputing's 64-bit vSpace virtualization and NUMO(TM) system on a chip (SoC) with its PC, servers and services to provide fully-integrated multi-workplace solutions optimized for SMB customers. The technology will be marketed under Fujitsu's FUTRO brand in an integrated network-ready monitor FUTRO DC20-1 and as a stand-alone client, the FUTRO C400. The multi-workplacesolutionswill be sold through the channel and will be available immediately in EMEA markets.

Commented Stephen Dukker, CEO Ncomputing: "Partnering with a global top tier computing company is huge testament to the leadership role we have played in solving the complexities, technology barriers and pricing issues that hindered adoption of thin-client computing for years. Partnerships such as this are creating entirely new product ecosystems that add value and advantage for everyone including OEMs, system integrators, the channel and customers. Fujitsu's innovation and leadership in SMB combined with our innovation and leadership in virtualization will push the total addressable market for virtualized multi-user environments to new heights."

Fujitsu's multi-workplace solutions solve the SMB challenge of having to configure and integrate multiple devices, peripherals, virtualization software and operating systems to create virtual multi-user environments. SMBs will benefit from a significantly lower cost of acquisition compared to traditional all-PC multi-user environments as well as on-going cost savings such as 90% lower energy costs and 50% reduction in maintenance and support costs.

Said Rajat Kakar, Vice President Workplace Systems at Fujitsu Technology Solutions: "Our SMB customers are looking to reduce costs, bandwidth, IT resources and to simplify their complex IT environment. Our multi workplace solutions solve this problem. With the help of NComputing's technology, we can deliver packaged solutions that provide powerful multi-computing environments with PC-like performance at highly attractive and affordable price points."

NComputing'svSpace virtualization software combined with its NUMO(TM) SoC enables OEM and ODM companies to design and manufacture virtualized, multi-user access solutions and devices based on Windows and Linux vSpace software can be deployed alone, or seamlessly integrates with popular server virtualization infrastructures provided by Citrix, Microsoft and VMware to extend their value by changing the typical virtual desktop structure from one user per virtual machine to thirty. NUMO(TM) is a highly integrated System-on-Chip (SoC) that features a dual-core ARM CPU, embedded media processors supporting dynamic bandwidth management; multiple protocols and codecs including UXP and H.264; Windows-compliant graphics subsystem and a complete complement of device interfaces for graphics, serial, parallel, USB, SD, I2S, I2C for integration with enterprise and consumer devices.
