DATASHEET X350 & X550
Up to eleven users on one PC? Absolutely—today’s PCs are so powerful that the
vast majority of people use only a small fraction of their available computing
power. The X-series taps the unused capacity so that up to eleven users can
simultaneously share a single PC. Each user gets their own virtual workspace
(applications, settings, files, and preferences), but at a fraction of what it would
cost with individual computers. So even though eleven people share a single
system, they each get their own rich PC experience.
Easy to install
Each X-series kit contains the powerful, award-winning vSpace desktop
virtualization software, a PCI card, and XD2 access devices. Each X350 kit adds
three users to a low profile PC while the X550 kit adds five users to a full-sized
PC. Setting it up is easy: just install the PCI card and virtualization software on the
shared PC. Then connect the access devices to the PCI card with standard cables.
Finally, connect each user’s monitor, keyboard, and mouse to their access device.
That’s all—it’s as simple as an appliance. Now, multiple users can enjoy their own
independent virtual desktops. Add a second kit and even more users can
simultaneously share a single PC—up to 11 with the X550.
Powerful & flexible
Software applications run simultaneously and independently on each virtual
desktop. Users don’t even know that they are sharing a PC! Your staff and users
won’t need special training. They will also love getting their desk space back—the
XD2 access devices are tiny, silent, mount on the back of the monitor, and have no
moving parts. Yet they give each user a rich Windows or Linux workspace. Users
enjoy multimedia with sound and full-motion video at screen resolutions of up to
1280x1024 or 1440x900 (widescreen).
Economical & efficient
With the NComputing X-series, you can easily lower your computing hardware
and support costs by up to 75%. You will also save money on electricity. The
highly efficient X-series uses only 1 watt per
