Moderro to Announce "Turnkey Cloud Computer" This Week at 1st International Cloud Computing Conference & Expo

Xpack Internet Computer Features Sleek Enclosure and Moderro’s Own Operating System with Custom Browser and User Interface

Moderro Technologies www.moderro.com will debut its Xpack Internet Computer – an integrated (hardware, operating system and web management) solution for the Web 2.0 desktop SYS-CON's Cloud Computing Conference & Expo, November 19-21, in San Jose, CA.

The Xpack features a clean and friendly user interface and operating system that was written by Moderro specifically for interacting with Web 2.0 applications. This functionality, combined with simplicity, security, a small footprint, energy efficiency, and backward compatibility make the Moderro Xpack a perfect choice for Web 2.0 office.

“Web applications are an afterthought with operating systems confining them to a single-window browser, virtually pushing them into the background,” said Dan Itkis Moderro Vice President. “We decided to develop our own operating system, which makes web applications easier to use while making the user more productive. We provide a custom desktop experience that incorporates web-based applications, their feeds, and documents to set Xpack even further apart from traditional non web-centric personal computers.”

The Xpack desktop hardware includes a USB keyboard and mouse and a standard VESA mount option, which allows the hardware enclosure to be mounted to the back of the LCD display. Dual VGA/DVI output options coupled with dual monitor auto-detection, allows Xpack users to increase in productivity by using one display for monitoring, another for working.

Xpack’s energy consumption is a fraction of that of a regular computer with its advanced power-saving technology and software-driven power-management functions. The Xpack is also a solid state computer with no moving parts to ensure reliability especially when used as a public terminal or kiosk solution.

Enterprises are assured their migration to cloud computing will be seamless because the Moderro Xpack is compatible with popular terminal services protocols. This allows IT departments preserve their investment by making the Xpack compatible with existing application infrastructure while the solution takes advantage of current virtualization techniques.

Communications capabilities include a WiFi Antenna, 100/1000 Ethernet port and a Soft IP Phone client (and optional office-grade USB phone), which allows remote workers to plug into the office PBX environment from the field.

Moderro is targeting the Xpack Internet Computer for use in public terminals, kiosks and libraries, education and training facilities, as well as private and government offices ready to migrate to cloud computing. Xpack is available direct from Moderro. The Xpack has a starting price of $395.
