The NComputing solution takes advantage of the 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 capacity so that it can be simultaneously shared by many users. Each user's monitor, keyboard, and mouse are connected to a small and highly reliable NComputing access device, which is then connected to the shared PC. NComputing's award-winning vSpaceTM desktop virtualization software provides each user with a rich multimedia computing experience and their own computing session.

Our customers range from the smallest villages to the largest enterprises. Our products are installed in metal shacks in emerging markets and metal racks in datacenters. We offer solutions for Education, Small and Medium Business, Government and Enterprise. Never before has a single technology connected so many people at such a low cost.
