Allison Singh, Senior Novell Systems Engineer, and Guy Lunardi, Senior Product Manager for SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop, featured Userful Multiplier during their keynote presentation at BrainShare South Africa.
"Userful Multiplier's ability to leverage SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop for up to 10 users on one standard computer presents a huge value proposition for our corporate, government and educational customers," said Allison Singh. "Not only does Userful Multiplier significantly reduce hardware and software costs, but it also results in a 10-to-1 savings on computer management, electricity, and infrastructure costs. This is very important to our customers."
"Userful Multiplier is an ideal complement to SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop and openSUSE offerings," adds Tom Heubner, OEM Business Development Manager at Novell South Africa. "We recently used Userful Multiplier to deploy 2,205 Linux desktops in 105 South African schools. We are pursuing Userful Multiplier opportunities with other corporate, education and government customers who require large numbers of low-cost, high-performance desktops."
Linux Universities and Schools
Userful Multiplier is ideal for universities and schools considering Linux desktops. By allowing up to 10 users to leverage the power of a single Linux desktop computer, universities and K-12 schools can drive more value out of their fixed IT budgets. More time, energy and money can be invested in student learning rather than expensive hardware and software that depreciates quickly. Userful Multiplier is ideal for Linux computer labs, Linux Internet cafes, Moodle course management systems, Linux libraries and Linux Internet kiosks.
