Whitepaper: Best Practices for Choosing the Right Thin Clients for Your ISeries Environment
The benefits of thin clients are endless. Thin clients are easier to deploy, manage, and maintain then their PC counterparts. This paper from iSeries Connectivity expert BOSaNOVA explains what people must consider before choosing the right thin client for the environment. In the beginning, thin-client terminals booted from a server, had very slow CPUs with small amounts of memory, and relied on application servers to provide needed features. It is no surprise that these early thin clients didn't take off because delivery was poor (high bandwidth requirements, low color support, no sound, etc.) and the application servers themselves didn't support applications very well.
