I am planning to implement a computer center with 30 users. The users just need internet access and Microsoft office.
I am thinking about reduce cost using ncomputing.
I want to use 5 additional users per PC
6 PC for 30 users
but I have a few questions
I am concern about performance. Do you know which the PC minimal requirements are?
The performance is acceptable?
Can I share a Microsoft office at the same time with one license?
I am trying to get information about ncomputing quality device. It’s so hard to get it.
Thank you so much

I have no experience with ncomputing so can't coomment on the specs and performance, However what I can tell you is that you need a licence for each concurrent use of microsoft office - a volume licence edition is the way to go

Take what you want each user to have and multiply it by 5. Office needs 256 MB of RAM so if you have 2GB or more on each PC, you should be fine.

Internet and Office are usually fairly easy on the processor, so that shouldn't be an issue either. Of course, more RAM would be better, but it would run.

Do you have experience in ncomputing?

I have experience with virtual machines. If you are talking about the NComputing company that does virtual desktops, then I haven't worked with them specifically, but I've had multiple concurrent users using virtual machines on the same PC.
You need a license of Office for each virtual computer, so you'll need 30 licenses. You should talk to a MS representative to get volume license pricing because that many can get expensive.

If NComputing works anything like VMWare, then you define how much RAM to give each virtual machine. So just make sure you have enough to give each account enough. I would suggest getting 64-bit machines so that you can get more than 3.5 GB of RAM if you want to now or in the future.
