PCmag@Work (Small Business): Userful: Turn One PC Into Ten

It’s a neat trick: run the Userful Linux software on a conventional PC and hang up to ten monitors off it, sharing under-utilized computing power. Saves money and reduces carbon footprint.

“As businesses both big and small continue budget belt-tightening, one industry has discovered a cost-effective New Math: turning one PC into ten by deploying multi-seat virtual Linux desktops.

Userful Corporation announced today that over 30,000 schools across the globe have opted to use its virtual Linux desktop technology to reduce costs and improve the student-to-computer ratio.

Userful Multiplier is Linux-based software which creates up to ten virtual Linux workstations all from one single PC. The cost is $69.00 per seat and is a savings powerhouse for businesses because there is no need to invest in additional hardware. The virtual desktops harness the underutilized power of the typical physical PC, making it a green energy saver.”
