Enhances Desktop Virtualization Migration, Increases Performance, Improves IT Management

REDWOOD CITY, California, February 8, 2011 - NComputing (, a global leader in desktop
virtualization, today announced it has extended Windows platform support to
include 64-bit support with the launch of vSpace 6 (, the company's desktop
virtualization software. vSpace 6 delivers greater efficiency of CPU
resources and accelerated graphic and video application performance to give a
complete PC like experience. It also provides a simple upgrade path from
Windows Server 2003 to Windows Server 2008R2 64-bit. The NComputing family of
virtual desktop devices now supports Windows Server 2003, Windows Server
2008R2 64-bit and Windows Multipoint Server; and Linux platforms including

Said Bill Platt, SVP Engineering Ncomputing, "With vSpace 6, we have
responded to customer demand for simple and seamless upgrade paths from
Windows Server 2003 to Windows Server 2008R2 64-bit. This also enables a
Windows 7 experience including enhanced speed, networking and media streaming
- all through a virtual desktop environment. Moreover, the breadth of
platform support we provide means that customers can harness all the
performance and cost advantages of desktop virtualization in heterogeneous
environments with significantly less management and IT support requirements."

By extending its Windows platform support, NComputing enables customers
to benefit from Windows 2008 R2 enhancements such as improved personalization
management, a near-invisible integration of virtualized desktops and
applications in Windows, and better audio and graphics performance. Customers
will also benefit from Windows Server 2008 R2 Remote Desktop Services which
provide users and administrators with the most robust access experience in
any deployment scenario. Users considering deploying desktop virtualization
will be able to consolidate OS environments resulting in significantly
reduced support and maintenance costs.

NComputing vSpace software enables enterprises to optimize virtual
desktop deployments by providing multiple end users with simultaneous access
to a single operating system instance of either Windows or Linux. vSpace not
only integrates into virtualization server deployments based on VMware,
Citrix and Microsoft offerings, but can also extend their value by changing
the typical virtual desktop structure from one user per virtual machine to
thirty users. This has a significant positive impact on operational expenses
by up to 90% including up to 75% less maintenance and support, and 90% lower
energy costs. For more information on NComputing vSpace 6
