Thin Client Computing
Thin client computing is simply where you host all applications and data centrally on a server and access to these is by using a simple graphics based terminal – referred to as a thin client.
This is different from a ‘client-server’ architecture where some of the data and applications reside on PCs spread throughout the organisation.
No applications or data are resident on the desktop, and so it is “thin” when compared to the traditional PC.
In 2002 Leverstock installed the first thin client ICT Suite in a primary school anywhere in the UK based purely on Microsoft’s RDP protocol. Since then, many ICT Suites and school classrooms have been set up by Leverstock, giving schools a cost effective, secure, space saving and long lasting ICT solution.
These are some of our ICT Suites based on thin client computing.
