"The most important challenge faced during the migration was to guarantee successful change management process. Both system administrators and users used to Windows environments needed to feel at ease with the new systems and be productive from day one. We were extremely satisfied as Zarafa's webmail was conceived as a web-based replacement for Outlook. This helped greatly making the migration pretty straightforward."

Mihai Bilauca, Chief Information Officer at Limerick City Council - Ireland

Finally users received remote access to their e-mail and agenda, at home on a Mac or on the road from any smartphone. “The Exchange administrator refused to take the Linux course and now has a different job."

Many organisations are benefiting from the use of NComputing VERDE VDI with both on-site installation and Cloud/managed infrastructures.

This is just a small selection of VERDE's reference cases:


US Department of Defence

VERDE helps us reduce capital expenses by providing support for Windows thin clients running virtual Linux desktops. In addition, by enabling our department to move desktops into the secure data centre and isolate access based on need or clearance level, the solution significantly improves security.

Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München

VERDE has a small footprint, is easy to configure, and has many installation options. In fact, we experience that users fail to become aware if they are using a virtual desktop or a real desktop, or a mixture of both. As far as we can see it, VERDE does  the job

ICERM at Brown University This team of researchers is highly transient and requires an extremely customizable tool set of applications. Rather than configure each individual device based on standard policies then address customization requests, ICERM sought a technology partner that offered a flexible, easy-to-manage desktop virtualisation solution to reduce maintenance costs and man-hours.

API API needed a uniform infrastructure that would support the transition of most of its workstations to thin clients with more affordable and reliable services and accommodate a considerable number of constantly mobile laptop users across its Roma headquarters and Falconara refinery.
