NComputing has announced the availability of its products on the open-source Ubuntu Linux operating system. Joining its Windows-based offerings, the NComputing open-source solution allows schools and businesses worldwide to deploy full virtual PC stations, complete with hardware, software, the Ubuntu operating system and the OpenOffice.org productivity suite, at low costs by leveraging the excess power of their PCs and open-source license-free software.
"NComputing has dramatically reduced the cost of PC computing to empower a new generation of users in underserved markets worldwide with affordable PC solutions," said Stephen Dukker, CEO and chairman of NComputing. “Our virtual PC solutions, when combined with open-source software such as Ubuntu Linux and OpenOffice.org, are hard to beat.”
The NComputing solution, available with both Linux and Windows operating systems, capitalizes on a simple fact: Today’s PCs are so powerful that the vast majority of applications only use a small fraction of their computing capacity. NComputing’s virtualisation software taps this unused capacity so that it can be simultaneously shared by multiple users.
