We suggested that instead of replacing all the computers (30) which could cost in the region of €15000 that they purchase a Remote Desktop Server for €4500.
They keep all their existing hardware which will be used as dumb terminals to the new Server, the Server does all the work.
This gives the existing machines a new lease of life as they are working as fast as the latest PC that they could buy.
The customer also has a solution where they have only 1 computer to install software on or worry about updates for. They also have Antivirus only on the Server.
On the old desktops we installed an application that immediately, on start-up and after logoff, brings them to a remote desktop login.
Our customer is delighted with the solution because it has meant a significant saving while still getting the performance of a super-fast computer.
