Reduce the cost of desktop computing with a customized Server-Based Computing Solution.
The Server Based Computing approach to delivering critical business applications to end-user devices through the use of Thin Client computing technology is a solution that should not be overlooked in your IT strategy.
With this approach, it does not matter if the client device is a full-featured PC, a Macintosh system, a UNIX workstation, X-terminal, or a true thin client device like a Windows-based terminal or hand-held (wireless) information appliance.
With server based computing solutions, 100% of the applications and data reside and execute on the server.
This computing approach can reduce the cost of desktop computing. Application installations, updates and additions are made only once - on the server - and then are instantly available to all users anywhere, with exceptional performance. IT professionals have the ability to manage applications on the network from a single point and provide enterprise-level security for data and applications.
The diagram shown to the right is a high level view of the Server Based Computing Architecture.
