About Multi-station Linux


Userful Multiplier allows up to 10 full-featured, thick-client user stations to connect to a single Linux desktop computer. User stations consist of only a monitor, USB keyboard and mouse with dedicated video access. Support is available for individual USB memory keys and USB audio headsets.

Multi-station Linux desktops deliver the fastest, easiest and least expensive way to deploy new desktops (or thin clients) in computer labs, classrooms, libraries, retail stores and Internet cafés. By effectively eliminating up to 9 out of every 10 physical PCs, organisations can reduce their desktop hardware, maintenance, infrastructure and electricity costs by 60 to 80%. Multi-station Linux Desktops outperform LTSP and other thin client solutions.

If you are looking to maximise your fixed desktop budget or re-purpose your existing Windows desktops, contact Omni to learn more about Multi-station Linux Desktops at +1.780.423.4200 or via email.
