Mclean, VA – June 24, 2024: Propeller, a leading provider of cloud-hosted virtual desktops and application delivery solutions for education, is pleased to announce a new offering to make the load even lighter for higher education. With their new thin client computing modification, Propeller clients get more cost lowering options as well as more flexibility.

“We’re excited to bring this thin client option to the market,” Greg M. Smith, co-founder and CEO of Propeller said. “It gives our clients another great way to offer students and faculty access to what they need without adding big expenditures to their hardware and software replacement budget.”

Propeller’s offering builds on thin client computing developed by NComputing, an industry-leading provider of solutions for businesses and organizations. With thin client solutions, users can access their virtual desktop environment from a low cost or repurposed device with a lightweight, secure operating system (OS).

“Thin computing is a budget-friendly option to provide access,” explained Mohammad A. Haque, co-founder and CTO of Propeller. “With our expertise and full support, schools can use these devices in shared spaces, like computer labs or libraries.”

For education, thin client computing offers cost savings in hardware and software replacement while improving security and ease of maintenance. “Propeller has integrated core NComputing technology into their offerings, enabling educational institutions to adopt thin client computing in a seamless and well supported manner,” added Richard Sah, CTO of NComputing.
