Userful is a desktop virtualization company that focuses on simple, cross platform and low cost VDI solutions for education, public computing, SMBs and digital signage. The company develops software to install on even a standard Core i7 PC to create multiple virtual desktops including a choice of Microsoft Windows, cloud client, Linux and remote desktop protocols like VMware and Citrix. The company’s approach is similar to thin clients but uses ultra-thin or zero clients to deliver visibly better streaming video and audio performance at lower costs. Userful, based in Calgary, Alberta is a privately held for profit company with resellers.In February 2014, Userful launched Userful Multiplatform 7.0 that provides high performance and low cost to bring desktop virtualization beyond desktops to any endpoint.
Userful Desktop is a Linux-based multiseat operating system that combines a mixture of proprietary administrative tools, and a modified Red Hat distribution, with a GNOME desktop. The product is specifically designed as a full public computing solution for kiosks and public access computers. Desktop settings are managed by session profiles which are created and stored through a central Web-portal. Some key features are time management, Internet filtering, privacy protection, automated clean-up, and print-job costing, as well as remote monitoring and an administration website. The software includes over 40 applications supporting over 30 languages. Userful Desktop is locked-down and tamper-proof. When a user logs off, the station is cleared of browser histories and downloaded files.
Userful Desktop is delivered as a complete set including software, web portal access, standard hardware, monitors, keyboards, mice, dual-head video cards and USB hubs with various options for further customization, such as including an external USB diskette drive. Userful Desktop can be described as a multi-station system, consisting of a system unit, with one or more stations attached, plus Userful Desktop system software. The result is a thin client application that creates as many as 15 or more station terminals from a single PC.
