(Gawkwire.com) – London Web has been appointed by Miniframe, supplier of innovative desktop virtualisation software SoftXpand, as the exclusive distributor for supplying its award-winning multi-user solution to the UK and Eire markets.
This announcement comes several days after MiniFrame was awarded the Frost & Sullivan 2010 European Desktop Virtualisation Product Innovation Green Excellence Award. The award is the latest in a series of Green IT Industry awards given to MiniFrame in recognition of the company and its product as leaders in Green IT initiatives across all market sectors.
London Web Managing Director, Jamie Easterman stated, "SoftXpand is a natural choice for any organisation that is serious about its green commitments and is striving to make a significant impact on its carbon footprint and implement cost savings based on reduced power consumption. We have never seen technology like SoftXpand that benefits as many organisations with significant, tangible reductions in IT purchasing and running costs. We have implemented SoftXpand with a variety of public and private sector clients and the total savings in cost and ownership are compelling without sacrificing performance for end users. Verifiable 80% energy savings are easily achievable."
MiniFrame Marketing and Sales VP, Emmanuel Boutboul, commented: "The UK is one of the major markets for MiniFrame and working with the right partner is essential. We are delighted at the new partnership with London Web and look forward to a successful business relationship in the coming years. We strongly believe that, together with London Web, we will significantly increase our activities in the UK."
MiniFrame’s innovative SoftXpand Xpress software enables sharing of Windows-based machines. The software converts a single desktop PC into a system capable of supporting up to 8 users simultaneously – each logged on with their own desktop, monitor, keyboard and mouse. Since SoftXpand is not based on thin client technology, it delivers high-performance video options to each user. Video support is provided by installing additional video cards into the PC or by connecting low-cost Plug and Play display adapters via USB.
Implementing MiniFrame’s technology offers other benefits such as reducing e-waste generation and disposal costs by more than 80%. Heat output from PCs is reduced significantly – decreasing air-conditioning system consumption. IT departments can significantly cut costs in deploying software and hardware upgrades as well as reducing switch and cable requirements.
SoftXpand Xpress is already being used by over 100,000 organisations across the globe and has immense potential to become a leading desktop virtualisation solution on the market owing to its "green" credentials and cost effectiveness. The solution is ideal for applications in a variety of industries including education, call centres, manufacturing companies, small and medium – sized businesses (SMBs), financial institutions, government organisations, hotels and Internet cafes.
