In any educational environment, keeping your records secure and always available is key to ensuring your students gain the best education they can. By using Cloud Desktops, accessed from PCs and thin clients around the school, you can be sure that the information can only be accessed by you and will be available wherever you go. What's more, because all information sent between the device and the Cloud Desktop is encrypted, it can't be snooped by the trainee hackers who are meant to be learning Shakespeare!
We offer total solutions to the educational sector, including Igel thin client hardware. Igel thin clients are essentially cut-down PCs connected to the network that deliver applications and data via a centralised computing model with the majority of processing carried out by the server(s). Typically, the thin client terminal sends key strokes and mouse clicks to the server and the server sends screen updates to the terminal device.
Whereas previously, organisations may have come across thin clients when using Remote Desktop connections over Terminal Services (or Citrix), this technology is now being used to access Cloud Desktops in a truly virtualised environment, offering highly resilient services to customers over the Internet. This leap in technology not only reduces the amount of servers housed on site, offering access anywhere and lowering the overall cost of IT, it also helps to reduce your organisation's carbon emissions by reducing the amount of power consumed by IT.
