Thin Client Technology
A ‘thin client‘ is a streamlined computer used to access data and run processes on a remote server. The server manages the workload of multiple thin clients at once as part of a cloud-based network.
Using an Alpha Scan thin client network, all significant processing is handled by a centralised server. This allows a greater level of visibility, control and security, which is ideal for businesses that work with sensitive data.
Thin clients are ideal for users that do not have a demand for high-performance processing power, such as call centre staff using web-based applications and voice over IP telecoms.
Thin clients are simple machines that are not required to store any data. They have low energy processors and no moving parts. Thin clients are therefore considerably more affordable than standard computers.
