Carnegie Investment Bank, Stockholm, Selects ClearCube Technology and Svensk IT Funktion (ITF) to Equip State-of-the-Art Trading Floor.

- Secure, Energy Efficient and High Performance ClearCube PCoIP Workstations Drive New Trading Floor

AUSTIN, Texas, September 21 /PRNewswire/ -- ClearCube Technology, the leader in centralized and virtual computing, announced today that Carnegie Bank in Sweden selected ITF to equip its traders with high performance, blade workstations from ClearCube.

"ClearCube's centralized workstations with PCoIP are very energy efficient, secure and deliver the computing power that our traders need to perform at a high level," said Goran Andersson, CIO of Carnegie. "We also plan to extend the trading-floor service to our regional offices in Sweden and other countries as these users will get the same excellent performance and availability as the local traders. We foresee these great benefits based on the ClearCube-implementation of PCoIP-technology."

"Our partnership with ClearCube give us a very compelling offering for financial services companies like Carnegie Investment Bank, as well as other enterprises, that are looking to reduce energy costs, create a more ergonomic work environment while maximizing computer security," said Nicklas Henriksson, CEO ITF.

ClearCube's centralized computing solution replaces the box PCs at the desk with high performance, energy efficient and secure workstations located in the data center. Utilizing PCoIP remote desktop connection protocol, the ClearCube workstation is connected to a very small ClearCube user port at the trader's desk which connects to the four monitors, keyboard and mouse. ClearCube blade workstations are 38% more energy efficient than competitive solutions and they eliminate 94% of the heat that is generated in the work environment by box PCs.

"We're pleased to be working with ITF on delivering this industry leading solution to Carnegie," said Randy Printz, CEO of ClearCube. "We were first to market with an industry leading innovative PCoIP quad-monitor solution for trading floors and command and control centers; which has been very well received. Enterprises like Carnegie benefit from a low total cost of ownership in comparison to other workstations due to our efforts to engineer a very energy efficient, high performance workstation with the inherent security and cost benefits of centralized management."

"ClearCube has always been a leader in innovative, high security PCoIP solutions and they've demonstrated that at Carnegie with their highly effective quad-monitor PCoIP trading floor workstations," said Dan Cordingley, CEO of Teradici.

ClearCube was the first company to incorporate the Teradici ASIC chip into their quad-monitor blade workstations in order to deliver the quality end-user experience that PCoIP delivers.

Never mind that we might not know what the future holds for cryptocurrencies and how much values will fluctuate or even how the process of mining a coin could cost as much as the value of the coin itself - cryptocurrency mining is a hot industry and shows no signs of slowing down. However, energy consumption to mine cryptocurrency is one of the biggest issues facing this industry. Burning huge amounts of electricity isn't incidental to cryptocurrency, it's basically embedded in the core of "mining." In this winner-takes-all game, burning the most electricity increases the chances of winning. The Bitcoin Energy Consumption Index states that the global energy usage of all bitcoin mining already is equivalent to the power uptake of the country of the Czech Republic. Mining equipment for a larger operation can exceed 100 megawatts (MWs) - similar to what a 1 million-square-foot Google ...
