|The client must have some sort of processor to function. But are you thinking of something like Terminal Services or Citrix where the software runs on the server and the client is just an intelligent terminal? I can tell you, from experience, that unless you are running a limited set of software this solution can be more complicated than using individual client PCs. Also, with the current cost of PCs, it is unlikely to be cost effective. |
The biggest advantage is that it makes updating and maintenance of the software easier, but you need some pretty hefty servers, ideally clustered, to support the clients.
