NComputing Virtual PC Technology Powers Second Annual Ministerial Conference for Neighboring Countries of Iraq

Providing Reliable and Secure PC Access to Delegates and Journalists

REDWOOD CITY, CA--(Marketwire - December 13, 2007) - NComputing, the leading provider of desktop virtualization software and hardware, today announced that its technology was chosen to provide computing access at the recently held Neighboring Countries of Iraq Ministerial Conference in Istanbul, Turkey. The conference serves as a forum for sharing viewpoints on current developments in Iraq, and was hosted by the Government of Turkey. It was attended by senior ministers from Egypt, Iran, Kuwait, Syria, and Saudi Arabia, and representatives from the UN Security Council, the G-8, the Arab League and the European Union. The conference organizers selected NComputing's virtual PC technology to provide secure and reliable PC access to the more than 400 foreign ministers, journalists and other delegates at the conference.

The NComputing solution is based on a simple fact: today's PCs are so powerful that the vast majority of applications only use a small fraction of the computer's capacity. NComputing's virtualization software and hardware tap this unused capacity so that it can be simultaneously shared by multiple users. The NComputing virtualization software is loaded onto a standard Windows or Linux PC. Each user's monitor, keyboard, and mouse connect to the shared PC through a small and highly reliable NComputing access device. The device itself has no CPU, memory, or moving parts so it is easy to deploy and maintain. Over 500,000 NComputing systems have been deployed by 15,000 organizations to slash their computing costs as much as 70% and electric consumption by 90%.

"The Conference chose to deploy NComputing technology because it is reliable, secure, affordable and easy to install," said Mustafa Canoglu, president of NComputing's Turkish reseller Dojop. "Deploying individual PCs would have taken days and would have been much more expensive. With NComputing we only needed a fraction of the PCs." NComputing was deployed in the main operations area and press center, providing the delegates and journalists with secure and reliable PC access.

"NComputing technology is a perfect fit for conferences that require economical and reliable PC access for its participants," said Stephen Dukker, Chairman and CEO of NComputing. "It also can be installed very quickly and doesn't require extra power lines or air conditioning. NComputing was successfully deployed at the World Trade Organization conference in Hong Kong where it supported over 11,000 delegates, and it was a perfect solution for this conference." Besides conferences, NComputing systems have been deployed by thousands of schools, businesses and governments in over 70 countries.
