Simplifying Desktop Management

February 13th, 2006 · No Comments

InfoWorld has a special report. “Thin clients without internal storage or software can replace full-on PCs. That approach pushes all the patching, user-configuration, security and other management tasks upstream to server-savvy technicians in the datacenter. Thin clients cost somewhat less than PCs, but the real savings come in reducing the number of systems that need the human touch. When someones thin client fails, you just plug in a replacement and theyre back to work, because the productivity software, OS settings, and authentication all live on the server. Plus, renegade users cant download spyware-infected games or smuggle out a corporate database on a thumb drive.”
