In summary Thin & Zero Clients provide the best possible performance in a hosted desktop environment while all but eliminating the TCO of the desktop itself, compared to that of a high maintenance PC. Isn't that the point of moving to hosted desktops, high availability, reliability, and improved end user productivity.

By illustrating the differences between Thin Clients and Zero Clients I hope to better define them as well. Both are small form factor, solid state computing devices, specifically designed for a server based typology, currently generally associated with Desktop Virtualization (VDI) and Host Desktop Environments (DaaS), but they have many different characteristics that are important to distinguish. Below we will discuss the key differences between Thin Clients and Zero Clients.

Back in the day, long before the internet became a household word and even before "personal computers" even existed, if you used a computer, the odds are you actually were using a terminal connected to a server somewhere. While the concept of "client/server" computing may seem like a new concept, it has actually been around for decades. That's because each terminal connected to a server is, in concept, a client.

Are you nostalgic for the days when an app was an app that took up a terrifying chunk of your precious storage not a slick, bells and whistles 'user experience' hosted seamlessly through a clever VMware thin client?
