We all know that some schools do no have a lot of money to spend, and when they do have some money, they spend it on much needed bits and pieces. It is for that reason that some schools cannot afford to purchase a lot of expensive hardware. For a class of 20 students for example, the school would have to purchase 20 PCs to let each student work in peace on their own workstation.

The school could get 20 PCs and sped a lot of money, or it could get the recently released Windows MultiPoint Server 2011 and save some money. You see, by using Windows Multipoint Server 2011, all 20 students can share a single computer. 20 workstations can be plugged to a host computer and so 20 different users can work in peace. Each student has his or her own Windows 7 environment and all of them are connected to the same host computer.

“Access to technology provides students with a better platform for learning, but the realities of tighter school budgets make this difficult. Windows MultiPoint Server 2011 is a great solution to this challenge,” said Vice President of Worldwide Education with Microsoft, Anthony Salcito. He went on to say that Windows MultiPoint Server 2011 can be used in classrooms, libraries, labs and any other settings where there are multiple computers.

Principal Product Unit Manager for Windows MultiPoint Server, Dean Paron, emphasized the fact that cost savings is the biggest advantage for schools and administrators. “The most important thing Windows MultiPoint Server does is dramatically drive down the cost of getting computing access into the classroom for students. If a school cannot afford one PC for each student, you can get one computer and share it across several students.”

“We think that worldwide, there is the ability or the need to uplift something like a billion students with greater access to technology,” Paron added. “I believe access to technology is key as we develop the next generation workforce and leaders, not just locally but around world.”
