Userful Corporation launches MultiSeat 4.0 for Linux PCs

Converts one Linux computer to 11 high performance computer stations

By CBR Staff Writer

Userful Corporation, a provider of Linux desktop virtualisation, has launched Userful MultiSeat 4.0, a software that the company says turns one Linux computer into 11 high performance computer stations.

The new software uses standard USB devices including the HP t100, Wyse E01, MCT MWS 8820, and DisplayLink.

Userful MultiSeat enables organisations to deploy large numbers of computer stations for a low cost, whether in the classroom, office, call center, oil field, hospital, library, military base, or Internet cafe where multiple computers are needed in close proximity.

Each user feels like they have their own dedicated PC, but in reality they are sharing the resources of a single host computer, the company claims.

By pluging-in USB MultiSeat devices into the host PC for each monitor, keyboard, mouse, and installing Userful software, each user experiences high performance including full screen video.

Userful president Tim Griffin said Userful MultiSeat 4.0 is the right offering for anyone who wants the benefits of desktop virtualisation, without the price tag.
