What is Thin Computing?
Thin Computing delivers the productivity people need, at a lower cost than traditional methods, all without compromising security or manageability. Thin Computing replaces the PC with a Thin or Zero Client, making it easier for IT to manage user desktops by moving their complexity to the datacenter. Analysts agree that this approach improves the reliability and security of information, dramatically lowers IT costs, reduces energy consumption, and is far better for the environment.
Thin Computing includes hardware services and software that work with Thin Clients, Zero Clients, and PCs, as well as wireless devices and other systems. It gives everybody in the organization secure access to the information and the applications they need, without requiring the desktop systems to store them.
Why Thin Computing?
Today, as much as 80 percent of IT's budget is allocated to maintenance, making it very hard for any IT organization to add value to the business. Thin Computing not only reduces the cost to deliver desktop computing by as much as 40 percent or more, it also frees IT staff time to focus on more strategic initiatives.
