Today’s Personal Computers are So Powerful that, it has lot of computing power that is not actually required to run most of the productivity applications like Office Suite, Browser based Applications & Programming Languages - The Best way to utilize the excess computing power in the PC/Server is by sharing with other USERS in the LAN - thus we can achieve substantial Savings & Benefits across the organizations, both in capex & opex - This is called Thinputing.
With Thin Client Computing, undisputedly, you can save on your Capital Expenditure (Initial Investment) on your IT Infrastructure, You can save 40% , on your capex.
Typical PC (CPU) consumes 110-130 Watts, where as thin clients consume as low as (4-20)Watts depends on the products (models), meaning 90% savings directly.
One size doesn’t fit ALL - Whether it may be small business or large enterprise, imparting education or application development, computing needs are different from one to one, in order to provide the benefits of server based computing to every one, RDP has all the feathers in its cap - x86, Arm, Zero, MIPS, PCoIP, SoC based thin clients.
Managing Thin Client’s whether it may be 20 or 200 is very simple and not exaggeration to say single hand job because of its simplicity in hardware and software it contains, literally can call as plug n play devices, you can up and running any number of clients in minutes. Further Reliability of Thin Client’s is High, it does’t contain any moving parts resulting longer MTBF, wear & tear is almost negligible.
