Think of how much simpler it would be to have all of your applications and data in one place, and, to allow any number of people to share them by simply plugging in a terminal. With Thin Client Server Based computing you get all of the productivity gains of modern software while at the same time reducing the complexity and cost of delivering them to users in your organization.
Thin Client/Server Based Computing is defined by the fact that applications are executed on dedicated servers while the desktop device only needs to provide the display.
In simplest terms, the phrase “Thin Client Server Based Computing” describes a shift back toward centralized computing while maintaining the benefits offered by the Personal Computer revolution. Whereas each PC requires a dedicated hard drive, display, and, it’s own set of software applications, a Thin Client is a display-only terminal. A Thin Client does not have a hard drive, it needs no software loaded on it locally, and, it stores no data. Instead, applications are executed on powerful servers while the Thin Client simply presents the screen display and gives you a way to operate the keyboard and mouse. Thin Clients are very simple devices, you simply plug them in, log on to a server and start working. A Thin Client need only have sufficient power to render the display of your user session, therefore it does not need to be replaced or upgraded as new software and hardware versions are released.
In simplest terms, thin client/server-based computing describes a shift away from the complexities of the typical modern personal computer (PC)-based network. While the PC started out as a simple tool which enabled individuals to increase their personal productivity, it has in fact become a rather complicated and bloated device. New PC hardware and software are constantly being released, creating an endless stream of compatibility issues, both small and large. Just when you think you have your PCs working perfectly, new applications, devices, device drivers,Internet access, etc., are required, and each desktop computer needs to be individually upgraded, reconfigured, or even completely replaced. As a result, what started as a simple personal computer evolved into a rather complex "fat client" network device.
Thin client computing is a response to this constant PC desktop upgrade and maintenance cycle with its high cost and high manpower requirements disrupting the flow of business. A thin client is a "display-only" device, meaning it displays applications that run on dedicated servers rather than on the computer.
Thin Client Computing provides the following advantages:
