Delivering on the promise of anytime-anywhere computing, thin client technologies offer a proven vehicle for providing applications to the end-users in a cost effective manner while reducing the total cost of ownership. Businesses can virtualize at the application level or virtualize an entire desktop image, so that their environment is run from the datacenter rather than at the desktop layer. This enables the IT team to deploy thin client technology, which dramatically reduces the risks, costs and complexity associated with a standard desktop rollout. Because thin clients have no hard drive, or any other moving parts, they are economical to buy and operate, longer-lasting and, from a systems management viewpoint, far easier to configure, secure, and support.
As a certified partner of VMWare, Citrix and other virtualization technology leaders, Metafore has extensive expertise in the planning, design, implementation and support of thin client architectures.
Thin client computing is recommended for organizations looking to:
Reduce desktop replacement costs via desktop virtualization;
Utilize application virtualization to simplify and reduce maintenance costs for software application updates, virus scanning, etc.;
Enhance corporate environmental objectives by deploying environmentally-friendly, energy-efficient IT equipment;
Increase network security by centralizing your data and applications.
