Green IT: EarthSmart Computing
Increasing energy prices...climate concerns...legal regulations and guidelines...politics?
There are already many reasons for implementing IT systems that are friendly to the environment and conserve resources.
THIN CLIENTS are a COST EFFICIENT and ENERGY SAVING alternative to traditional Desktop PCs.
THIN CLIENTS come without fans or rotating Hard Drives making them much more reliable than PCs while increasing the overall average Life Cycle between Technology Refresh by years.
Low ENERGY CONSUMPTION reduces costs and CO2 emissions compared to PCs. Together with efficient Remote Management of all local THIN CLIENT settings they offer a fast return on investment.
Today THIN CLIENTS are used to access all kinds of office applications and CRM tools as well as demanding videos and multimedia presentations or digital dictation solutions and more. They increase Data Security and compliance with laws and regulations like HIPPA as sensitive data is not stored locally.
The introduction and roll out of Cloud Computing, Virtual Desktops or classic Server Based Computing becomes economically favorable when cost-efficient THIN CLIENTS replace traditional PCs. The Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) of the IT infrastructure is decreased substantially.
With THIN CLIENT technology, IT Networks perform faster with higher available because all Applications run centrally on stable, secure and often times redundant, load balanced Servers:
- Available Bandwidth increases since only Screen Content, Keyboard and Mouse Clicks are transmitted between THIN CLIENT and Server
- Data & Applications need only be CENTRALLY located and managed on Network Servers
- Viruses, Worms and Trojans can't infect your THIN CLIENT Desktops as THIN CLIENTS have read-only Operating Systems
- THIN CLIENT Desktops offer longer Life Cycles combined with significantly lower Power Consumption than traditional Desktop PC deployments
IGEL Technology America is one of the world's leading THIN CLIENT Software and Hardware providers, one of America's fastest-growing THIN CLIENT brands and Europe’s No. 1 in Linux-based THIN CLIENTS (data according to IDC THIN CLIENT Tracker 2012).
Today's PCs are so powerful that we no longer need one PC per person. We can tap into the excess power in one PC and share it with many users. NComputing thin client devices use just 1 to 5 watts, last for a decade, and generate just a few ounces of e-waste. Not only is this a simple solution to a complex problem, the efficiencies achieved using this technology are amazing.
NComputing solutions save 75% on hardware, and since they draw less than 5 watts of power, you can reduce your energy footprint by as much as 90% per user. NComputing thin client devices produce practically no heat, reducing the need for energy-consuming air conditioning. Electricity savings alone can pay for the NComputing virtual desktops in as little as one year.
