"Many people are skeptical that a single PC can be effectively shared by multiple simultaneous users," claims Frank Coggrave, Vice President for EMEA at NComputing.

This, says Coggrave, is why the company is allowing people to try out its X-series and L-series virtual desktops for themselves at GITEX Technology Week. The company states that in today's economy, the cost of purchasing and supporting individual PCs for each person cannot be justified.

According to NComputing's Coggrave, virtual desktops save 70% in capital and operating expenses while providing the flexibility to leverage existing equipment and networks. He also points out that on top of saving OPEX and CAPEX, logistically shared and virtualised computing are much more efficient when it comes to repairs and maintenance as only
the shared computer needs support and upgrade.

If espousing the cost saving benefits of virtual computing and virtual desktops were not enough the company, makes the lofty promise that it will prove at GITEX that NComputing has the "greenest" credentials in the market.

"Last but not least, we will show that NComputing is the greenest computing on earth. There are over a billion personal computers around the world. A typical computer uses over 110 watts of electricity and generates 10kg of e-waste at the end of its short three to five year life," explains Coggrave.

"The overall impact is a massive output of greenhouse gases and hundreds of tons of toxic e-waste. Green computing will not succeed until PCs are more efficiently utilised," emphasises Coggrave.
