Thin Clients in Education
Smile, school administrators and IT pros. You can now deliver a PC-like experience to your students, save money, and manage all your desktops from one place.
The majority of our customers are from the education vertical. Why? Because schools from kindergarten through 12th grade, colleges, and universities are all facing the same problems: Small staffs deploying, troubleshooting, and managing thousands of expensive desktops.
More and more schools are replacing traditional PCs with thin clients. Here’s why:
- Manageability – IT staffs can manage thin clients easier from one centralized location, instead of running across school districts to troubleshoot thousands of desktop PCs.
- Cost-Savings & Green Technology – Thin clients costs thousands of dollars less to deploy and drastically reduce energy expenses, using 75%-85% less energy than PCs.
- True PC-Like Experience - New technology, like the TC5 thin client and virtualization software, allow students to watch video and access the Internet just like a PC.
- Security - Students can be prevented from downloading files that contain spyware, malware, and viruses because all applications are stored in the data center – not the desktop.
