MiniFrame and VeryPC Join Forces to Offer the Greenest IT Solution

Press Release   •   Sep 12, 2010 06:18 GMT

Netanya, Israel and Sheffield, UK – Two multi-award winning green IT companies, VeryPC and MiniFrame have today announced their collaboration to produce a range of high performance, energy saving solutions to desktop virtualization. The GreenHive for SoftXpand range combines energy efficient software expertise of MiniFrame with the life-cycle engineering and energy calibrating hardware ingenuity of VeryPC.

Close collaboration between the two companies allows VeryPC to optimize and produce a dedicated appliance for MiniFrame’s award-winning SoftXpand multi-user software. VeryPC GreenHives enhance the SoftXpand desktop virtualization software and provides accelerated processing and high-definition graphics [1080p] for up to six simultaneous users. GreenHive appliances for SoftXpand allow users to experience the high performance payback of using an energy saving solution, with an operational maximum load of 110 Watts across the six users. Peter Hopton, VeryPC’s MD, says, “The GreenHive for SoftXpand solution provides an excellent alternative to both the traditional desktop solution and a thin client set-up, by taking the benefits of both and fusing them together to create a solution that’s got the high-definition graphics of a desktop PC, but the lower footprint of a thin client. It’s the best of both worlds and can reduce the TCO by around 75%.”

"We at MiniFrame believe that the future belongs to green IT technologies. That's why we are proud to partner with VeryPC. The collaboration will allow us to deliver the greenest desktop virtualization solution on earth while providing the best performance to our customers," said Raz Rafaeli, MiniFrame’s CEO. "VeryPC is the perfect match for us. We strongly believe that the combination of SoftXpand and VeryPC computers will result in significant value to the customers and increase SoftXpand presence in the UK“, added Raz Rafaeli.
