Products of IE Concepts: EduPc

EduPC is a low cost computing device which lets schools set up language labs, math labs or an interactive learning center at cost effective prices which requires multiple computers. The technology eliminates the use of multiple desktop computers environment replacing to a consolidated client-server computing model, hence reducing the overall set up cost by 50 per cent. These units have no moving parts or internal hard-disk as the data is stored on the server  and the access to certain applications can be restricted to the users. Overall in the long run,  there is no need for system replacements or system updates. The server is the only  hardware which needs to be updated.

The system supports over 30 users  on a CPU server setup, as per user  configuration. It consumes less power  as compared to desktop units, thus reducing  energy cost and air conditioning  usage. It also has rich multimedia playback for video  files and high quality audio and  animation. Investment cost to set up desktop units   is reduced by 50 per cent and long term operations cost saved by 75 per cent. The solution is compatible with other learnings and supports Windows.
