Cornell University cuts office
Computing in administrative offices is often limited to productivity
applications, email, and Internet access. In this setting, today’s PCs are
woefully underutilized. Cornell University wanted to find a way to cut the
administrative computing costs while maintaining the current level of access.
By deploying NComputing L-series connected to a central computer in its
administration offices, Cornell University cut costs, increased reliability,
and decreased the amount of maintenance required.
Harvard University library installs
Charged with finding a greener computing solution, library staff set about
researching alternatives to traditional PCs. They found the NComputing
L-series. Consuming only 5 watts of electricity (compared to over 110 watts
for a traditional PC), and weighing less than a third of a pound, the L-series
is the greenest computing solution on earth. Installing the L-series proved
simple, cut hardware and maintenance costs, and helped align the library
with Harvard’s sustainability goals.
Los Angeles Community College
saves with NComputing
The Los Angeles Community College District (LACCD) was searching for
low cost computing alternatives. LACCD needed a solution that was not only
cost-efficient but also easy to deploy and maintain across multiple campuses.
LACCD found that traditional thin-client solutions could cost as much as
$2,300 per seat. Instead, a complete NComputing solution was deployed
for about $300 per seat. In addition to the hardware savings, LACCD enjoys
tremendous maintenance and energy consumption savings.
Fresno Pacific University cools down
overheated student labs
Fresno Pacific University, like many similar institutions, has a number of
old buildings that must house modern computer labs without the benefit
of expensive renovations. For Fresno Pacific, that meant computer labs
without air conditioning, so the temperature was always over 80° F
regardless of the temperature outside. Fresno Pacific turned to
NComputing. An NComputing access device generates virtually
no heat and consumes between 1 and 5 watts of electricity
(compared to 110 watts for a PC). Fresno Pacific saw immediate
power consumption savings in addition to cool labs
and productive students.
