An alternative to thin clients for the Enterprise

editor's review




Windows 7 may be among the most popular operating systems in the world, but it is definitely not the slimmest one, as it comes loaded with numerous apps and settings that are not absolutely necessary for the smooth running of a computer. Companies that are looking for an OS with a smaller footprint can try Windows Thin PC.

This utility comes as an ISO so it should only be managed by IT personnel who have the proper knowledge to correctly deploy it to remote machines delivered via Microsoft Virtualization Desktop Infrastructure or sessions.

This slim client solution provides companies with the possibility to enhance the security and compliance levels, as users can rely on write filters so as to prevent data from being written to disk.

Additionally, Windows Thin PC provides users with support for remote desktop connections so they can deliver hi-fi multimedia data from centralized locations.

As it is especially developed to meet business requirements, IT personnel can resort to existing System Center instances to manage Windows Thin PC, and they can also deploy programs, security patches and even updates.

They can also use BitLocker and AppLocker to increase the protection and security of their repurposed PCs, as well as rely on DirectAccess to provide their clients with secure access to their slimmed down laptops.

All in all, Windows Thin PC can help companies evaluate the benefits of the slim client computing, and if they are pleased with the functionality, they can purchase a full-blown solution after the evaluation period expires.

Furthermore, if they are not satisfied with the functions provided by thin client computing, IT admins can easily revert to traditional computers after having installed Windows Thin PC on their machines.
