Pano Logic's Zero Client Device Wins Prestigious Green Design Award

Pano Logic, the leader in zero client desktop virtualization, announced today the ultra energy efficient Pano Device, the industry’s only true zero client for virtual desktop computing, won a major design award for energy conservation and sustainability. Whipsaw, a leading industrial design and product development firm, accepted the prestigious Green GOOD DESIGN award for its work on the Pano Device, which uses less energy than a light bulb, and dramatically reduces the energy required to power computing resources.

The Green GOOD DESIGN Award, which is sponsored by the European Center for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies and the Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design, recognizes products that symbolize sustainable design and conservation awareness. The Green GOOD DESIGN award represents the world’s most important manufacturers and design firms that are cultivating a new emphasis on a more sustainable design and environment. The awards highlight the importance of sustainable design and seek to develop public awareness about which companies are doing the best to produce sustainable product design. The award marks the second for Whipsaw and the green computing Pano Device, which in 2008 won a coveted red dot design “best of the best” award, the largest and most distinguished design competition in the world.

Dubbed both “sex and art” by Wired magazine, the 3x3x2 Pano cube consumes just 3 percent of the power that an average PC requires and just 4 percent of the materials.

“The move from traditional PCs and thin clients to zero client computing slashes energy consumption, and our customers are finding huge savings in power use alongside the benefits of managing a far less complex computing environment,” said John Kish, CEO of Pano Logic. “We’re pleased by the recognition that our Pano Device contributes to a more sustainable future and validation of its eco-friendly design.”
