Most thin clients have low energy processors, flash storage, memory, and no moving parts. This reduces the cost and power consumption, making them affordable to own and easy to replace or deploy. Since thin clients consist of fewer hardware components than a traditional desktop PC, they can operate in more hostile environments.
As a result, Thin Clients are viable alternatives to regular PCs for businesses that demand flexibility, energy efficiency, improved data security, and longer IT infrastructure lifespan.
At Marpoint, we strongly recommend devices that have a Linux-based operating system and automatically receive recommended security updates. They cannot be easily tampered with as Linux is one of the most security-oriented operating systems in the market.
Thin Client technology is a viable option as it has minimal configuration and comes with plug-and-play features. The shipping company can further gain significant cost savings from reduced levels of IT help desk support, low energy consumption, limited moving components, fanless systems, and high availability (HA).
