Go Green & save money with NComputing

We can't live without PCs, so let’s learn how to live with them in a way that makes them friendlier to the environment and at the same time eases the burden on our pockets. Even taking into account the development of low power IT Solutions components such as processors and memory, PC’s still consume far too much electricity and generate too much e-waste to be considered, even remotely, as Eco-friendly by today’s standards.

With a typical PC taking approximately 110 to 200 watts to run, and with well over 1 billion of them on the planet, it’s easy to understand what the Silicon Valley Toxics Commission is saying about e-waste being the fastest growing part of the waste stream.


An architecture that changes the green equation

NComputing systems are a major leap forward in green computing. More than 15,000 organizations in over 80 countries have used NComputing to slash their carbon footprint and electricity consumption. 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 leading to a criminal waste of energy.

NComputing’s virtualisation technology shares available computing capacity between multiple users and with each user being allocated no more resource than is absolutely necessary for the task a very efficient use of energy results.

Consumes 90% less energy per user

PCs typically consume between 110 to 200 watts of electricity in stark contrast to 5 watts for NComputing’s L-series devices. This means that replacing 70 PCs with NComputing devices could save over 20,000 kilowatt-hours (kWh) of energy per year, which translates to a reduction in emissions of over 2 metric tons of CO2 and cost savings in the region of £3,000.

Air conditioning — the hidden environmental cost

A single PC generates more heat than a 100 watt light bulb, while a room equipped with PCs and NComputing access devices generates 90% less heat and does not require additional air conditioning.

98% less e-waste in landfills

Electronic waste is a large and growing problem representing 2% of all trash in landfills and 80% of toxic waste. NComputing L-Series devices can reduce landfill e-waste by a massive 98%.

Virtually Maintenance-Free

A solid state construction with no moving parts gives the NComputing L-Series devices an incredibly long useful life span. If devices ever do go wrong a replacement can be simply plugged in, even by the end user, and they will be up and running again in no time at all. Taking their hardware resource and operating system environment from the shared server L-Series devices never IT Solutions need upgrading and with the vast majority of problems being resolved remotely maintenance costs are reduced to a minimum.
