PCs are so yesterday!
You know, it doesn't seem that long ago that computers came onto the scene. They started off as huge machines that took up entire rooms, but were quickly widdled down to the personal computers we see everywhere today! But now the 'desktop' gets even smaller... Technology moves so fast that the cool ideas that were once only found in science fiction movies now are available and in use in the real world!
Cloud Client Computing replaces the outdated computing model of the unsecure, unreliable, un-green and expensive PC, and delivers the security, reliability, and user experience with the lowest energy usage and total cost of ownership.
With the use of thin clients, users don't have the big box to try to fit around their desk somewhere, no noisy fan to deal with, no heat generation making them uncomfortable as they work -- yet they enjoy all the other aspects of a personal desktop environment. Plus support and repair time is minimized and front end costs can be lower. How?
Server virtualization came to be as a result of many people realizing that most servers use only a very small portion of their capacity most of the time. Ultimately, the same line of thinking led to the next big thing -- thin clients in replace of desktop PCs. Basically, user equipment is narrowed down to a keyboard and a screen, but they continue to have their own unique desktop environment.
