NComputing Takes Leadership Position in Desktop Virtualization in Asia Pacific


Ranked #1 in Q2 2010 Enterprise Client Devices with 50.2% QoQ growth

Redwood City, 9 November 2010: - NComputing, a global leader in desktop virtualization, today announced a major milestone and endorsement of its strategy to transform legacy PC economics and infrastructure. The company has been ranked #1 in enterprise client device shipments in Asia Pacific in a newly published report by IDC. IDC’s Q2 2010 Worldwide Enterprise Client Devices Tracker ranked the company #1 in Asia Pacific shipments at 25.2% share and fastest quarter on quarter growth at 50.2% (when combining the thin client and terminal client categories).

Desktop virtualization represents the most disruptive change in the economics of IT since the PC. 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. 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, NComputing has deployed over 350,000 virtual desktops in the Indian subcontinent and over 100,000 in ASEAN region. The company is involved in some of the world’s largest enterprise desktop virtualization initiatives including Employee State Insurance Corporation (ESIC), India, which is deploying over 31,000 NComputing Virtual Desktops across 2,200 locations in support of the Indian Government’s effort to deliver insurance and healthcare benefits to over 20 million employees.
NComputing is the de-facto standard for education in the majority of Indian states like Andhra Pradesh where 50, 000 NComputing virtual desktops are deployed in 5000 schools to benefit 1.8 million children. The company recently announced success with Indian state education ministries of Punjab, Rajasthan and Bihar. NComputing technology has also been implemented by The Ministry of Education, Government of Punjab, Pakistan which recently deployed over 64,000 of the company’s virtual desktop devices in 4286 schools, benefitting 3.4 million students.

Commented NComputing CEO Stephen Dukker “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. 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.”
