A thin client is a lightweight computer that has been optimized for establishing a remote connection with a server-based computing environment. Thin clients are less expensive, seldom need to be upgraded, and are less prone to breakdowns. There are many scenarios where we can use a thin client at its full efficiency.
We can use thin client as a stand-alone system where the customer can browse, make work documents or excel sheets, and can use multimedia applications to watch the movie and listen to music.
We can use thin-clients to connect to the remote servers using the RDP protocols and we can also access the virtual desktop running on a cloud through a thin client. You just need to enter your cloud credentials in the browser or the cloud client application.
