Thin Client Server
Posted on 2006-05-17
Hey guys back with another question. Thin client implementation this time. The school district that I work for is preparing to go to a thin client environment in the computer lab to lower administrative overhead. We are going to use all of the old machines as thins and the servers will be running 2003. The apps that are going to be shared are the office 2003 suite, some smartboard software, the macromedia suite (if possible), Digital image suite/Photoshop. the macromedia suite and digital imaging programs my have to remain fat because of the intensiveness of the software. What is your opinions on distributing these apps over thin client and what kind of specs should we be looking for in our servers (we will probabily build them ourselves). Of course will all school districts are funding is limited so we are working under a budget - probably looking at $1000-$1500 per server. Any other thin client input would be greatly appreciated as well. Thanks a million guys.
