Thin clients and network computers
What is a thin ent?
A thin ent, also known as zero- or cloud- ent is a computer due to its lower hardware equipment, consumes much less energy than a desktop PC. Due to low hardware performance, the data processing can not be performed by the thin ent itself. It is therefore used in most cases in office and enterprise networks with a server. Here he prov s the user with the user interface is a ilable, the processing of the data is then performed on the server. Frequently used applications for thin ents, for example, Web applications, Terminal Server environments and virtualization environments. On a thin-client devices like printers, headsets, etc. be used normally.
A further of use for thin-clients are computer terminals and all locations where a user should only have access to specific applications (eg information booths at fairs, public body or the like). Thin ents are usually operated with a customized Linux or Windows operating system, designed for the lower capacity. Initial problems with support and the like already belong to the past , because the applications are constantly being developed and improved.
What ben ts have thin ents ?
The main ad ntage is the energy consumption. A thin ent requires approximately 10-20 watts, a normal desktop computer with multi-core CPU and without any further particular features often already consumed 40-120 watts. Due to the lower heat of the systems also is added a lower mileage of the air conditioning. Another ad ntage is the saving of the administrative overhead. Depending on the manufacturer, there are several ways to supply several thin ents at the same time with a previously created configuration. The ents are uniformly control by the users and can be replaced easily, therefore, there must be no data transfer or similar. Of course, individual programs can be enab or disab easily for a user. The average duration of a thin ent is up to 7 years, a desktop computer is about 3-4 years. So you have still to be expected from our used thin ents much run time. Since thin ents virtually no moving parts are used, you expect less wear of the components.
The newer zero ent devices also have an even smaller system. This is used to often only allow a single application, but thereby making the use more secure because there is no other interfaces are no longer present. Take ad ntage of the possible ben ts for you with our refurbished thin ents.
With us you get used thin ents of the leading manufacturers h hog, Dell and HP. The refurbished thin ents are technically correct, as these have been tested by us to the smallest detail, but may be optical traces of use.
