Thin Client Solution

The trend in Thin Client computing is a result of the evolution of the personal computer (PC)-based network. In the past, new PC software and hardware were continuously being released, resulting in a neverending stream of upgrades in terms of hardware, applications, devices, Internet access, device drivers (to name a few) being needed.

Thin Client Computing (also known as Thin Client/Server-Based Computing) is basically an explanation in the shift back to more centralized computing (utilizing Network Servers) while keeping the advantages that users of PCs have historically enjoyed. In addition, a Thin Client computer requires no software to be loaded on it (since it doesn't have a hard disk drive); furthermore, it stores no data on it.

All software applications are handled and executed on efficient, powerful network servers while the Thin Client computer –  quite simply – delivers and presents the screen display and has the  most basic of drivers to operate the computer mouse and keyboard.

 

Replacing Desktop PCs with Zero-Client Solutions


This is completely different with zero clients: The system has no processor, no memory, no embedded operating system, no firmware, no driver or other software, no local memory and definitely no moving parts. What you get is 100% hardware for a secure connection to your virtualization server over LAN.

Peripherals such as keyboard and mouse, a display as well as other USB devices connect directly to the zero client. All software such as applications, drivers and the zero client Windows client are transferred from the desktop to the server and are stored in a centrally organised data centre and managed from there. Desktop TCO can be reduced by up to 70 percent. Combined with the zero client Controller, the central management component used for monitoring all zero client systems and connecting users to their assigned virtual desktops, Zero cleint has developed the most efficient, cutting-edge desktop virtualization concept.
