Schools around the world use thin client solutions to provide computer access to faculty, students, and staff. Whether a large public university or a small charter school, educational institutions of varying size and curriculum use thin clients to provide a controlled and manageable environment. Thin clients are often deployed in computer and learning labs, as well as integrated into classroom learning.
At DisklessWorkstations.com we design and deploy thin client solutions based on Linux and other open source software packages. Our experience varies as we have worked with school districts, small private schools, public universities, charters, and more in different capacities. DisklessWorkstations.com is ready to assist with hardware procurement (thin clients, servers, accessories, peripherals), thin client solution design, server sizing, and integration with user storage and management tools.
