Black Box VirtuaCore Receives 2011 R&D 100 Award
R&D Magazine recognizes the desktop virtualization computer sharing system as a top technology product.
PITTSBURGH, PENNSYLVANIA, July 27, 2011 — Black Box Corporation (NASDAQ:BBOX), a leading communications system integrator dedicated to designing, sourcing, implementing, and maintaining today’s complete communications solutions, announced today that VirtuaCore™ Desktop Virtualization Computer Sharing won a 2011 R&D 100 Award from R&D Magazine.
The 49th Annual R&D 100 Awards salutes the 100 most technologically significant products introduced into the marketplace in the past year. The awards have long been a benchmark of excellence for industry sectors as diverse as telecommunications, high-energy physics, software, manufacturing, and biotechnology.
VirtuaCore is a desktop virtualization computer sharing system. It is computer hardware that multiplies one dual-core PC into two workstations or one quad-core PC into four workstations. The VirtuaCore system uses a virtual machine-style technology, which segments a dual-core processor into two separate, independent drives controlled by two individual, directly connected keyboards, mice, and monitors. The quad-core version provisions a single machine into four individual virtual “containers,” providing full functionality for four users sharing the same CPU tower, each with a separate monitor, keyboard, and mouse.
“We are excited to see VirtuaCore recognized by R&D Magazine as a top technology solution for 2011,” says Terry Blakemore, President and CEO of Black Box. “The potential for this product, especially for the education market, to provide access to technology, plus energy and cost savings, is enormous. Additionally, VirtuaCore addresses green concerns of IT departments.” To learn more, visit www.blackbox.com/go/VirtuaCore.
