Haryana Schools Get NComputing Computer Labs

As part of the Haryana government’s major education initiative called the ‘ICT in Education’ project, high-performance and green computer labs have been implemented by NComputing in 2622 government schools of the state.

 Powered by NComputing’s cost effective and high performance computing technology, and pre-loaded with C-DAC’s (Centre for Development of Advanced Computing) EduBOSS operating system, 58,500 workstations have been successfully implemented across 2622 government schools of the state. EduBOSS, C-DAC’s free and open source operating system, has also contributed to bring down the overall cost of implementation significantly.

The initiative, which is aimed to introduce each and every student of the state to the world of computing, will benefit over 1 million government school students across all districts of the state.

Apart from Haryana, NComputing’s cost effective shared computing technology is already providing desktop computing access to millions of school children through major state education projects in Andhra Pradesh, Assam, Bihar, Punjab, Maharashtra and Rajasthan.

Manish Sharma, Vice President, APAC, NComputing, said, “We are privileged to be selected by the Haryana government, and associated with C-DAC, for this prestigious project that will equip the next generation of Haryana’s workforce to be globally competitive. Our products and technology are ideal to overcome challenges related to infrastructure and limited power supply.”

 Jagjit S Bhatia, Executive Director, C-DAC, said, "Along with NComputing, this is an ideal solution to provide affordable computing access.”
