The greenest NComputing setup in eastern India
CoE (www.coe.co.in) is the Bihar government’s ICT knowledge and technology infrastructure partner,
established to promote ICT literacy among the youth of Bihar to enhance their employability skills and
to support the training needs of the state’s government employees. CoE has signed a memorandum
of understanding to partner with the government of Bihar for a five-year period, to create an IT
infrastructure that will facilitate programs and modules related to English communication, soft skills,
and interpersonal skills.
The rewards of going green
With the state’s electricity challenges in mind, hybrid energy sources (solar plus wind) were used.
And by reducing the number of desktops, air conditioning requirements were also reduced. In
acknowledgment for being the greenest NComputing setup in Eastern India so far, CoE received the
Go Green innovation award from NComputing in 2011. The Go Green award recognizes companies that
have demonstrated leadership by using information technology solutions that support sustainable
initiatives. (For more information, see www.ncomputing.com/gogreenaward)
A smart choice that saved money, time, and energy
According to P.K.Sinha, CEO, Centre of Excellence and Director, Astric Computers, “NComputing’s
innovative solution gave us the best value for money, with huge savings and a reduced TCO. The
flexibility and the ease of use with any operating system made the solution convenient to deploy and
use, and the minimal space required to set up the lab has led to substantial space savings for us.”
He added, “Our biggest challenge was setting up our lab on time. We are thankful to the NComputing
team for their excellent solution and support that gave us the early mover advantage. The fast
deployment—followed by cost benefit, zero downtime, the openness of use with any operating
system, and optimum space utilization—made this one of the best services we have received to date.”
The first pilot lab setup for 100 users was installed within 9 days. Subsequently, this was doubled to
accommodate 200 users, with video surveillance, biometric entry/exit, and similar extension centers
in 18 districts of Bihar. This additional infrastructure was essential for CoE to cater to the ever-growing
training needs of state government employees.
