Bill Platt Joins From Wyse Technology as SVP of Engineering and Support; Don Beck Joins From Google’s Postini as SVP of Worldwide Sales

New Delhi, December 11, 2007 – NComputing, the leading provider of virtualization software and hardware, today announced the appointment of two additional executives to its growing management team as global demand for the company’s technology continues to accelerate. Bill Platt was appointed senior vice president of engineering and support, and heads NComputing’s development efforts around the world. Effective immediately, he will lead the global team that develops NComputing's desktop virtualization software and low-cost access devices. NComputing has engineering development centers in the U.S., Germany, Poland, and South Korea. Platt will also be responsible for expanding the company’s customer support organization.

Don Beck joins as NComputing’s senior vice president of worldwide sales and leads the company’s global sales and field technical sales teams. Both executives will play key leadership roles in directing NComputing’s strategic growth as the company expands into new regions and markets.

With more than 20 years of experience in the technology industry, Bill Platt brings world-class leadership to NComputing's executive team. Before joining NComputing, he was EVP of products at Wyse Technology, a leader in thin client computing. Prior to Wyse, he was vice president of the operating platforms group at Sun Microsystems, where he was responsible for the Java Enterprise System and Solaris products. Before that, Bill was instrumental in helping Sun build its field service and support organization. Sun experienced enormous growth during Platt’s 15-year tenure with the company, as he built and ran organizations such as Americas Customer Care and Asia Pacific Customer Services. Bill earned a B.S. in Systems Engineering from the University of Pennsylvania and a B.S. in Economics from the Wharton School.

Don Beck, a seasoned sales executive with experience growing early-stage companies into successful global organizations, brings almost 30 years of sales experience with some of the world’s largest and most admired technology companies. Most recently, he served as SVP of worldwide sales for Postini, the global leader in on-demand communications security, which was acquired by Google in July 2007. Prior to Postini, he spent five years as vice president of North American solution sales at Adobe Systems. Beck also spent almost 20 years working for IBM and has held management-level positions at other world-class enterprises, including EVP of worldwide sales operations at Brio Software (acquired by Hyperion) and vice president of channel sales at J.D. Edwards & Company.

“As NComputing enters the next phase of its technology and market development, Don and Bill bring a wealth of experience with both early-stage companies as well as global technology leaders,” said Stephen Dukker, chairman and CEO of NComputing. “Their team-building skills, strategic relationships and understanding of the PC virtualization industry make them ideal additions to NComputing.”

“This is an exciting time to join NComputing -- it is pushing the envelope on virtualization software and ultra-thin client technology while providing affordable computing to students and workers around the world,” said Platt, “This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to bring the power of computing to the next billion people.”

“I’m excited to join NComputing at a time of tremendous growth opportunity,” said Beck. “What NComputing has done for educational computing is fully applicable to many other industry sectors and geographic markets and I look forward to helping the company successfully expand its market reach.”

The NComputing solution, available with both Linux and Windows operating systems, capitalizes on a simple fact: Today’s PCs are so powerful that the vast majority of applications only use a small fraction of their computing capacity. NComputing’s virtualization software taps this unused capacity so that it can be simultaneously shared by multiple users. Each user’s monitor, keyboard, and mouse are connected to a very small and highly reliable access device, which is then connected to the shared PC. The access device itself has no CPU, memory, or moving parts, and the solution is easy to deploy and maintain. NComputing systems cost as little as $70 per seat.
