Can Thin Client Cost Savings & Zero Client Cost Savings Really Make a Difference in Your Budget?

At first, transitioning and investing into a Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) environment may seem a bit overwhelming, but as you progress with your VDI Proof of Concept, you’ll find that moving away from the PC world will be well worth it–on an efficiency, security, and cost-saving level.

By design, Thin Clients and Zero Clients are not built with moving parts, helping to lead to longer life expectancies of hardware with less replacement issues. They prevent end users from loading applications, reducing the risk of viruses. They have a small footprint, consume less power, and their data is centrally located and managed on a server. All of this contributes to less time, less effort, less energy, and of course… the ever-important, less budget! So, what about these Thin Client cost savings and Zero Client cost savings–can they really make a difference in your budget?

Thin Client Cost Savings

Thin & Zero Clients are easier to deploy, manage, and maintain than PCs. They simply operate better all-the-way around, ultimately contributing to Thin Client cost savings (and/or Zero Client) in your budget. Everything is server-based and centrally managed and stored, reducing the costs of planned or unexpected hardware enhancement or part replacements. If your environment consists of several end users and work stations, the VDI single-server management feature really helps to save on operational costs. Due to longer lifespans of Thin & Zero Clients, as they without moving parts, a simple replacement is all that is required and setup is a snap. Also, Thin & Zero Client hardware is cheaper than PCs. Licensing fees will also plummet.

If your work is more efficient, your IT staff is also… all affecting your bottom line with Thin Client cost savings and Zero Client cost savings! Thin & Zero Client Centralized Management software allows IT professionals to maintain all devices from a server or in the data center. Upgrades, application deployments, security policies, group changes, backups, and virus control can be centrally managed, rather than at individual workstations. This saves a lot of money and time.

Thin & Zero Client cost savings can also help with your energy spending and related budget. Averaging only 4-6.5 watts power consumption, Thin Clients can greatly reduce power consumption and carbon dioxide emissions.
