Thinstation terminal computer software
We provide our customers with freeware Linux based Thinstation terminal computer operating system / software based solutions. We have been using Thinstation for over 12 years and can assist with compiling and configuring different configurations. Thinstation is designed for use in offices, schools and even at home.
Thinstation is good because it can be used on workstations almost maintenance-free (ie after the computer is restarted, the software is reloaded – we use the TFTP service and DHCP configuration). Additionally, you do not need to have licenses under Thinstation (except for Windows Remote Desktop CAL). Thinstation has proven itself, for example, to make hardware 10 years old a fast and modern workstation for the user.
Thinstation software works very well on a variety of hardware (different processor architectures) and allows connections to the following servers:
Microsoft Windows Server (2000, 2003, 2008, 2008 R2, 2012, 2012 R2, 2016) using RDP over rdesktop and FreeRDP.
Microsoft Windows XP / Vista / 7/8/10 versions for single user login (Remote Desktop).
Servers using Citrix ICA ‘d
Linux, Unix servers using X ( XDMCP ), NX (NoMachine, FreeNx, 2X , Neatx), ThinLinc (Cendio), View Open client (VMware), SSH , Telnet and other text based terminals.
Thinstation software can also be used in so-called kiosk mode, and various applications can be built into Thinstation and configured according to the user’s preference, such as:
Simpler office software
Different other applications
We provide custom tailored solutions based on Linux and Thinstation.
Most computers to terminals?
The system is future-proof , ie enables the use of modern ubiquitous software platforms, significantly reduces administrative costs in the future, simplifies and centralizes network management, and enables the integration of modern terminal servers into the system. The highest level of security is guaranteed.
Affordable and Low Installation Costs : Terminal acquisition cost is about half the average PC price, and does not require any on-site software installation, just a few cables to connect.
Economical and quiet: The terminal has no serviceable or moving parts and is characterized by a minimum noise level (0 DBa). The terminal is about 1/10 the size of a regular desktop computer, so it doesn’t take up much extra desktop space.
Mobile: Terminal application programs run on a server, not on the workstation device itself, so users are not connected to physical locations. Work in progress can be continued from another terminal connected to the same network. Turning off ThinClient does not cause data loss, no need to worry about UPS (uninterruptible power supply) for each terminal. The UPS is located on the terminal server.
Secure: The programs and data to be processed are located on the server and cannot be copied to external media at the workplace. As a result, software piracy and information leakage are minimized. With full centralization of data, the backup procedure can cover all critical data sets. The lack of local data communication equipment reduces the risk of spreading viruses.
Easy to administer . The administrator / teacher can take a screenshot of any terminal user if needed. Remote administration over the Internet allows a system administrator to solve problems even from all over the world.
Productivity and security. The disadvantage of the terminal system compared to other computer systems is the so-called. single point of failure. This means that many clients’ work is dependent on a single server. If something happens to the server and it becomes inaccessible to the users, the work of the clients stops. The first way to avoid this situation is to have two terminal servers.
Adding an additional terminal to the network is easy and inexpensive ; it only involves purchasing a terminal computer , LCD monitor, mouse, and keyboard.
Existing PC-type computers can also be converted to terminals . Thus, the introduction of a terminal system will turn current obsolete hardware into full-featured high-speed jobs. Over the years, such obsolete hardware and software jobs are only being created and the solution is to turn them into terminals.
Terminal workstations do not need to be upgraded; in the case of server software upgrades, they connect to the terminal server without any reconfiguration by the terminal.
