7-in-1 PC Goes for the Green

Arthur Cole

A UK company is pitching a new green PC solution that allows multiple users to access a single desktop without having to install expensive virtualization technology.

 

VeryPC's GreenHive platform allows up to seven terminals to be connected to a central PC, cutting power consumption per user from about 80 watts to about 9 (although neither figure includes the power consumed by a monitor).

 

Still, the company says that its central desktop unit draws less energy than a single desktop and is still able to server multiple users with standard business applications. The system is powered by a 2.3 GHz multicore Opteron and sports 4 GB of DDR2 RAM, a 250 GB SATA hard disk and a rewritable DVD drive.

 

A full bundle comes with the server, seven 19-inch TFT monitors, keyboards and mice, a laser printer, Cat 5 cabling, plus Windows XP and backup and shutdown scripts.
