What is Zero client ???
Zero clients are cost effective and alternative to PC's. It largely depends on host computer to fulfill its computational roles. It improves maintenance and security due to central administration of the hardware and software in the servers. Zero clients come without fans and rotating hard drives therefore they are much more reliable than PC's and increase the overall availability of IT. Zero clients can reduce electricity consumption by up to 90% compared with PC's.
Savings : By Using Thin Clients we can save 40% Capital Cost, 90% on Power Consumption and 90% maintenance cost, A zero client device is a type of thin client device that has a very small form factor with little to no processing, storage and memory components. It is a compact client-end PC that is used in a centralized computing infrastructure or virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI).
