What is a Thin Client?
A thin client is a general term for computing devices that rely on centralised or network-based resources to operate. A legacy example of thin clients is the dumb terminal, which displayed text driven applications served by mainframe computers and were generally deployed in schools, universities, call centres and commercial establishments. Today’s thin clients provide more advanced functionality and support a graphical environment and emerging technologies such as Citrix or Microsoft terminal services.
Why would anyone consider a thin client?
A thin client is not a complete computer, meaning it has reduced or no local storage and reduced processing resources. This significantly reduces capital expense at the desktop. Furthermore, the overhead costs associated with administration, maintenance, support, security and installation are significantly lower than a traditional PC. Netvoyager thin clients are a realistic alternative to the traditional costly PCs
