Nclouding Ltd. Chooses Userful as Preferred Entry-Level Desktop Virtualization Solution

Reseller switches from NComputing to Userful for reliability, flexibility and affordability
 

Calgary, AB – Userful™, a leading entry-level desktop virtualization company, and Nclouding Co. announced today an agreement whereby Nclouding Ltd. will install Userful Multiplatform with the Atrust m320 zero client device for customers throughout South Korea, as a more fully featured alternative to NComputing L300. Installations have already begun.

The unique architecture of Userful software appliance provides simplicity and performance, seamlessly delivering HD multimedia across a range of displays and operating environments. Userful leverages zero client devices to replace physical PCs at a lower cost than traditional PCs and with a 96% power savings. The browser-managed Userful solution goes beyond desktops powering interactive touch displays, digital signage and video walls.

“We’re very satisfied with the high performance of Userful and the Atrust m320 zero client,” said Michael Chun, founder and chief executive officer at Nclouding Co. Ltd. “The Userful solution can play many 1080p HD videos on YouTube simultaneously with maximum performance.” Chun said, “Nclouding started searching for an alternative virtualization solution when the NComputing hardware wasn’t performing up to our standards”.

“We received a lot of complaints from our customers due to the limited performance of the NComputing L300. In several aspects, the device could not meet our customers’ expectations. So we decided to look for an alternative and chose Userful after due consideration.”

Chun emphasized the value of easy installation and fast set up that Userful provides.

“We found that Userful installs on a host PC with ease and promptness. We also like the intuitive drag-and-drop user interface on the browser-based Userful control center. It is by far the best among those we have tested.”

“Some Userful features, such as not needing a Microsoft™ Windows operating system, greatly attracted us as did the ability to add digital signage. We recently introduced the digital signage to our key hospital client and they decided to adopt Userful immediately.”

With over 1 million virtualized desktops worldwide, Userful provides schools, libraries, small businesses and the world’s largest virtual desktop deployment, with a simple and low-cost desktop virtualization solution that offers significantly greater flexibility and performance than traditional products.

At $199 MSRP, including the device and software, Userful costs less than the NComputing L300 but includes an integrated hypervisor like traditional entry-level solutions like Citrix® VDI-in-a-Box and VMWare Horizon™ View. Userful also offers integrated cloud-client desktops, similar to the Chrome OS built into ChromeBoxes, and supports many other use cases.
