Get the most out of HP Thin Clients

HP Thin Client: While change is constant in the IT world, the advent of cloud computing has expedited the innovation cycle. Virtualization has become an inevitable option for businesses of all sizes. Virtualized infrastructure delivers improved performance, mobilizes solutions, and contributes to increased business revenues. One of the biggest advantages of the cloud computing revolution is optimized infrastructure costs. Thin client technology adds to this advantage.

How do thin clients make a difference?

In a virtualization desktop infrastructure environment, resources are centrally hosted on a server. All client devices in the network access the server through client software. They run an OS locally and use a flash drive instead of a dedicated hard drive. Because all the processing is done on the server side, the client device doesn’t require beefed up hardware specs. Although thin clients do not have dedicated computing resources, they provide the same native experience to remote users. With less hardware required, thin client technology significantly reduces IT costs for the system as a whole.

How do HP Thin Clients make a difference?

HP is a leading provider of computer systems and accessories. With several years of experience manufacturing computing devices, HP holds a major share in the IT hardware segment. Despite a 6.9% dip in thin client sales in 2015, HP still stands second in overall thin client sales. According to IDC statistics, HP thin client sales reached 1.27 million, or 10.2% of market share, in 2015. Statista reported that a total of 5.08 million units were shipped in 2015, with HP client units representing 1.272 million of those shipped. While thin client technology reduces IT costs, HP Thin Clients take this advantage to another level by offering significantly low-cost and high-performing client hardware.

Parallels Remote Application Server (RAS) complements low-cost HP thin client solutions

To successfully set up and manage a VDI environment, organizations should deploy the right management software. Citrix XenApp and VMware View are two of the big names in this segment. However, both products are complex and nullify the cost advantage of the HP thin client devices. Parallels RAS is a perfect partner for HP remote networks. Parallels RAS is a comprehensive virtual desktop delivery solution that offers all the features available with other brands in a single and cost-effective solution.
