Moderro Technologies today announced the Xpack Internet Computer – a turnkey web-centric cloud computer.
The Xpack Internet Computer is an integrated (hardware, operating system and web management) solution for the cloud desktop. It features a clean and friendly user interface and operating system that was written by Moderro specifically for interacting with web-based applications.
This functionality, combined with simplicity, security, small footprint, energy efficiency, and backward compatibility, make the Moderro Xpack a perfect choice for “cloud-only” office or venue.
The Xpack desktop hardware includes a USB keyboard and mouse and a standard VESA mount option, which allows the hardware enclosure to be mounted to the back of the LCD display. Dual VGA/DVI output options coupled with dual monitor auto-detection, allows Xpack users to increase in productivity by using one display for monitoring, another for working.
Xpack’s energy consumption is a fraction of that of a regular computer with its advanced power-saving technology and software-driven power-management functions. The Xpack is also a solid state computer with no moving parts to ensure reliability especially when used as a public terminal or kiosk solution.
By using web applications, XPack users keep their data on Moderro’s integrated cloud storage, or on a personal USB storage device, which allows Moderro to get rid of local storage and make the system proof from viruses and other malware.
Enterprises are assured their migration to cloud computing will be seamless because the Moderro Xpack is compatible with popular desktop virtualization technologies such as ones from VMWare, Microsoft, and Citrix. This allows IT departments preserve their investment by making the Xpack compatible with existing investment while transitioning to all-cloud computing.
Communications capabilities include a WiFi Antenna and 100/1000 Ethernet port.
Moderro is targeting the Xpack Internet Computer for use in public terminals, kiosks and libraries, education and training facilities, as well as private and government offices ready to migrate to cloud computing. Xpack is available direct from Moderro. The Xpack has a starting price of $395.
