Michigan State University's Dubai campus has chosen ClearCube Technology's blade workstations for its student computer lab.

The R-Series blade workstations and user ports will be used in the computer lab as a more cost and time efficient solution than desktop PCs.

The ClearCube solution replaces the box PCs at the desk with high performance, energy efficient and secure workstations located in the data centre, which are then centrally managed through a single interface.

ClearCube says that with energy savings, improved reliability and reduced management time, its blade workstations deliver a 40% lower total cost of ownership compared to standard desktop PC set ups.

Praveen De Silva, principal information technologist at Michigan State University, Dubai campus said: "Being able to update and manage all of the workstations from a single location was a huge benefit for us. We don't have a large IT team and being able to manage all the ClearCube workstations from their advanced interface really helps streamline the maintenance of our dynamic computer lab, saves significant budget and human resources and keeps the students productive."

The deployment of the solutions will be carried out by ClearCube partner BladeTec.

"We've worked with ClearCube for seven years and the MSU deployment is a perfect application of their blade workstations," said John Kingdon, managing director of Bladetec. "We've deployed ClearCube blade workstations in a myriad of government, financial services and education environments. Whenever there is a need for secure, energy efficient and centrally managed computing then ClearCube blade workstations are the solution of choice."

Randy Printz, CEO of ClearCube added: "We continue to see strong growth in the Middle East thanks in part to the efficiency of managing our blade workstations versus box PCs," said We're excited to have MSU as a customer and work with Bladetec to deliver a solution that fulfils their needs."
