NComputing Surges Ahead of Wyse in Asia Pacific

Financial Services Lead the Drive to Next-Generation Thin-Client Computing

MUMBAI, INDIA and REDWOOD CITY, CA--(Marketwire - October 28, 2009) - According to the latest IDC report, NComputing, the worldwide leader in desktop virtualization, is now a top thin-client vendor in the rapidly growing Asia-Pacific market. NComputing has quickly emerged as the global leader in thin-client and virtual desktop computing because it uniquely delivers an ultra-low cost solution with a rich multimedia computing experience unmatched by traditional thin-client vendors. Notably, the company has surpassed Wyse in market share.

"The IDC data validates what we are seeing across the world. Organizations want to cut computing costs dramatically, and they are looking for innovative but proven solutions like those offered by NComputing," said Stephen Dukker, chairman and CEO of NComputing. "Unlike traditional thin clients, which rely on high-end servers and involve complex installation and maintenance processes, NComputing thin clients can connect to desktop PCs and can be up and running in minutes. Customers save on capital expenses and operating expenses."

According to the IDC report, the financial services industry is the largest market in the region, with nearly half of all thin-client deployments. The public sector also grew by an impressive 47%. During the same period, NComputing announced major government contract wins, including the largest education tender in India, a 5,000-school computerization project in the state of Andhra Pradesh.

"Our education business continues to accelerate globally, but it's our commercial business that is showing the fastest growth," commented Mr. Dukker. "Our customers are rolling out multi-thousand seat projects in banks, distribution, retail, branch offices, factories, and healthcare. NComputing's success is crossing every sector and every geographic region."

The NComputing solution is based on the simple fact that today's PCs are so powerful that the vast majority of users only need a small fraction of the computing capacity. NComputing taps this unused resource so that it can be simultaneously shared by many users. Each user's monitor, keyboard and mouse connect to a small and highly reliable NComputing thin client, which is then connected to a shared PC or server. Up to 30 users can share a single PC, or hundreds can share a low-cost server with no impact on performance. The entire NComputing solution costs only US $70-$180 (depending on model and region).

In addition to lower capital costs, NComputing also lowers operating expenses. By efficiently and effectively sharing computer power, NComputing drastically reduces the crippling cost of computer obsolescence. The NComputing solution also reduces maintenance budgets and, because NComputing thin clients only use 1 to 5 watts of electricity, cuts electricity and cooling costs by 90% or more.

NComputing has won numerous prestigious awards including those from The Wall Street Journal, Frost & Sullivan, CES, Gartner, eIndia, and PC Quest.
