The Future of Computing

April 24th. 2017

Businesses today need to maximize productivity, security, and reliability in a cost-effective manner. You may ask, is there an alternative to the typical business IT solution of PC’s and servers? And, if so, could such an alternative reduce your total cost of ownership (TCO)? Yes, indeed!

Instead of PC’s, Thin Clients (or Zero Clients) can be used.

What is a Thin Client or Zero Client? It is a PC-like device that allows most of the “heavy lifting” to be performed by the server instead of the PC. “Thin” implies that it is to be used in conjunction with a server and not as a stand-alone computer.

Thin Client Advantages:

  • Reduced Workstation Cost – Thin clients normally cost much less than PC’s. In addition, they require less initial setup and configuration.
  • Reduced Management Expense – In some situations, it is necessary to go from desk to desk to manage desktop computers. With Thin Clients, however, most of the management can be performed on the server.
  • Improved Security – Most Thin Clients have no moving parts, no hard drives, and no data storage. They are often thought to be less vulnerable to user action, and security can be more easily managed.

The future of computing, at least personal computing, has been showing signs of weaning away from the traditional desktop for quite some time now. This has been due to several reasons: the advent of virtualization, the need for computing to be mobile, security issues, the need for savings on long term costs like hardware and power consumption and the adoption of cloud based services like SaaS (Software as a Service).
