"Achieving energy efficiency and green computing methods in schools is essential to the continued progressive development of our educational system," comments Renee Mehrian, President, Aqua Connect. "With the ongoing budget cuts in education, it is important to not lose sight of the goal of creating energy efficient computer labs in our schools. This campaign with BOSaNOVA achieves this goal by bringing the Mac platform to education while also reducing energy costs."
The inclusion of sound capabilities and local printing in the Aqua Connect Terminal Server, along with the compact size of the energy efficient RBT line of BOSaNOVA thin clients, makes this the ideal solution in education.
"During these tough economic times schools are being hit hard by cut backs. By joining forces with Aqua Connect, we're able to give back by providing some much needed technology," comments Martin Pladgeman, President, BOSaNOVA. "The educational institution that is chosen will not only benefit from the free hardware and software, but will be able to realize the long term benefits of thin clients including energy savings, low total cost of ownership, easy management, enhanced security and more."
