Thin Client Terminal

What is a thin client terminal?

A thin client terminal is a computer that does not have a hard disk drive and does not store files or software internally, but instead accesses the software or data in a server by connecting to the server via a network.


Since a thin client terminal does not have a storage device, it is possible to prevent data leakage accidents such as theft or loss of data. This allows company employees to use the company's internal system safely while outside the company or at home.

 

Thinclient Model Overview

Traditional Desktop Computing

Thin-client Desktop Computing​

Thin-client model advantage


Security

IT Management

Resource Allocation

Traditional Desktop Computing

× Risk of information leakage / piracy when laptop is lost or stolen

× Decentralized IT -> High OPEX

× Dedicated Resource for each PC. Ex) CPU processing power is wasted when PC not in use

Thinclient

Desktop Computing

Information Leakage / Piracy Measures

* Data / software stored on-premise in a secure site

* No data/software stored in the terminal at remote site

Centralized IT Control -> Low OPEX

Resource Pooling. Resource Utilization across VPC is possible. Ex) Unlike traditional desktop computing, 100 CPU is not necessary required for 100 users at a given time
