"Modern PCs are wonderfully powerful. But most of that power is wasted because people typically use less than 10% of the available capacity. Unused computing cycles may seem to cost nothing, but dig deeper and you’ll find real costs that quickly add up.
Personal computers draw about 110 watts. HyperCom PC-Station draw only 1 to 5 watts. If you add users to a shared PC, you reduce the energy footprint per user by as much as 99%. Electricity savings alone can pay for the HyperCom PC-Stations virtual desktops in as little as one year.
Consume less energy and you produce less heat. One of our customers said, "A room full of PCs needs to be air conditioned. A room with shared PCs and HyperCom doesn’t." Less air conditioning compounds your savings on your electric bill, and it can save you a big capital expense if that means you don’t have to install air conditioning in the first place.
Most PCs are disposed of after three to five years. Our PC-Stations last more like ten years. And when you throw out a PC you throw out about 10 kg of waste. HyperCom PC-Station weigh just 150 grams. So there’s less to transport and less e-waste that will find its way to a landfill.
Because our products deliver green computing and cost less to buy and operate, they address the triple bottom line perfectly. That is, they save you money while they help reduce climate change and hazardous e-waste. The numbers add up for individual companies. And they can't help but add up for our planet.
With over 1,000,000 seats sold worldwide, the HyperCom PC-Station user base saves:
• 144 million kwh of electricity yearly
• 17,700 metric tons of coal
• 112,300 metric tons of CO2 that have not been emitted into our atmosphere
• Nearly 8,100 metric tons of e-waste
All applications on the host system can be shared simultaneously by all of the users working on the terminals including web browsers, instant messaging programs, e-mail applications, office productivity suites and even basic multi-media applications.
This is an ideal solution for schools, training rooms, and office applications. Organisation throughout African must consider this solution in the face of the current global economic crisis to enable them still enjoy maximum computing at less cost.
