Infinity Technology Solutions Ltd
In its simplest form, a Thin Client is a PC with less of everything.
The only software that is installed on a Thin Client is the user interface, certain frequently used applications and a networked operating system whilst the Thin Client depends primarily on the central server for processing activities.
With limited space being required for applications and data, the Thin Client can be a very small, low-powered device that results in a lower cost per unit.
Thin Client users can expect easier system management and a system that is easier to install and operate, as well as the advantages of networked computing such as central storage / data backup and network security.
Thin Client Benefits
Extra secure as no application data lives on the client, centralising anti-spyware protection and reducing the risks of physical data theft
Enhanced data security as the data is stored on the terminal server, not the individual device
Control software, applications and files centrally
Lower IT administration costs as thin clients are managed almost entirely at the server
Lower cost per unit maximises the number of workstations that can be purchased on a budget
Lower hardware costs
Less energy consumption reducing energy costs and in some cases, reducing the need for, or upgrade of, air conditioning systems offering a significant cost saving
Less moving parts mean increased reliability and reduced maintenance costs
Less network bandwidth required
Infinity has worked with a number of businesses to successfully plan, install and support a Thin Client network.
