With the U170, NComputing has once again set the standard for simple and affordable desktop computing. NComputing's innovations include tightly integrated solutions that include the award-winning NComputing vSpace virtualization software and industry-leading, low-cost, rugged and reliable access devices. These solutions have made NComputing the global leader, with millions of daily users. To this highly successful product line, NComputing brings an unprecedented feature: plug-and-play simplicity.

Desktop virtualization does not have to be complex. Or expensive. Unlike other desktop virtualization solutions, NComputing does not need expensive and complicated servers and infrastructure. In fact, vSpace was designed to efficiently share the normally wasted CPU cycles in standard low-cost PCs. In an NComputing solution, vSpace creates multiple virtual workspaces in one physical computer, and then the additional users connect their monitors, keyboards, and mice, through a simple access device. With the U170, connecting the access device to the shared computer couldn't be easier: just snap them together with the included USB cable.

The U170 is based on over ten years of product development and refinement. You could say that it was designed by the sharpest engineers in the world, a million rough-and-tumble kids, hundreds of CIOs, and thousands of IT staff who are on the desktop front lines every day. That's why the U170 has the most evolved and useful features on the market. For example, many customers complain that they don't have enough power outlets at the desktop and want to eliminate cable clutter, so we designed the U170 to get its power through the USB data cable.

In addition, the model U170 is a high-speed USB 2.0 peripheral that automatically assigns any other USB device attached to it to the user. That way, users don't have to assign their keyboards and mice every time they log in. We also use native USB drivers, so there are no limitations in USB compatibility or performance. And because the U170 device delivers stunning multimedia all the way up to 1650 x 1080 wide screen (or 1600 x 1200) with 32-bit color, it continues the NComputing tradition of delighting users and IT staff alike.
