Achieves Milestone of Largest Installed Base With 2.5M Virtual Desktops Sold
REDWOOD CITY, CA, Aug. 30 /CNW/ - NComputing, a global leader in desktop virtualization, today announced expanded operations including international senior hires, country expansion, an aggressive channel expansion program, an enhanced OEM program, and integrated solutions with Microsoft, Citrix, and VMware. These actions are in response to growing global market adoption of the company's desktop virtualization devices and technologies. NComputing is experiencing broadening enterprise acceptance and continued education success across all international regions, with year-over-year revenue increasing 40 percent.
NComputing's recently introduced enterprise-optimized L300 desktop virtualization solution achieved swift and strong adoption, helping solidify its position as the leading desktop virtualization provider in the enterprise segment. The fast adoption of new products, coupled with a series of vendor and channel strategic alliances, have been key drivers to accelerated growth, In Q4, NComputing will roll-out joint marketing and education campaigns with strategic industry partners to further increase understanding and adoption of desktop virtualization in the enterprise. The company will also be expanding operations with sales and channel presence in Latin America, Korea and Japan in Q3 and Q4. To further expand enterprise adoption, the company has introduced an enhanced channel partner program designed to provide corporate VARs and System Integrators with improved revenue, margin and customer opportunities.
As well as strong increase in end-user demand, OEM demand for NComputing's Numo(TM) powered SoC (System on a Chip) is gaining momentum. Several OEM monitor, netbook and consumer device manufacturers are shortly going into production using Numo(TM) specification to provide access to low-cost PC functionality in a networked environment while delivering full-fidelity multimedia. The company is expanding its OEM partnership and technology support programs throughout key geographies.
IDC's Q2 2010 Worldwide Enterprise Client Devices Tracker highlights just one aspect of NComputing's leadership in desktop virtualization, ranking the company No.2 in worldwide shipments at 20.9% share and fastest quarter on quarter growth at 56% (when combining the thin client and terminal client categories).
Commented 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 with vSpace and our low cost clients demonstrate the truly disruptive economics of virtual desktops when naturally priced; reducing all client related costs by 50% or more compared to traditional PCs. International momentum from all sides - education, government, enterprise; plus cooperation and interoperability on an industry-wide level such as ours with leading virtualization companies including VMWare, Microsoft and Citrix has put the 'old guard' on notice. 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."
To help manage and accelerate international growth, the company has made a series of senior hires including the appointment of Jim McHugh, formerly Vice President of Data Center Software Marketing at Sun Microsystems to the position of SVP Global Marketing, Paul Gullett, formerly EMEA President of Tandberg, to the position of VP EMEA.
NComputing continues to lead in the education sector, maintaining a 15 percent share of PC's in the US K12 market. New and extended education contracts include the Indian education ministries of Punjab and Rajasthan provinces, and Government of Bihar India, which combined deployed over 30,000 seats of NComputing based virtual desktops on solutions to provide computer literacy to tens of thousands of school children. The Government of Macedonia, Eastern Europe, extended its contract with NComputing to provide an additional 60,000 virtual desktops, bringing the total number of NComputing virtual desktops in Macedonian schools to over 200,000.
