Neverware and Samsung Electronics America will speed adoption of one-to-one learning and help leverage existing hardware in school districts around the country, the companies said.
Neverware, a Google for Education Partner, created CloudReady OS so that schools can have the Chromebook experience they already love on the PCs and Macs they already own. Computers can be converted with CloudReady and fully integrated with the Google Management console alongside their Samsung Chromebooks.
Samsung and Neverware will offer a bundle which combines Samsung´s new Chromebook 3 devices, CloudReady licenses, and Google Management Licenses.
CloudReady is already in use by over 200 school districts in 38 US states and 10 countries. Since CloudReady is built from the same code that powers Chromebooks, it offers integration with Google Apps and the Google Management Console.
Neverware is a New York-based developer of operating systems. Its flagship product, CloudReady, enables school districts and other organizations to cost effectively transform their existing hardware into simple, secure, and fast machines that can be managed right alongside Chromebooks.
