PC virtualization will spark renewed interest in thin client computing. Remote access virtual PCs promise more efficient hardware utilization and a rich end-user experience. Enterprises already pursuing a centralized virtual machine hosting strategy should evaluate the potential of PC virtualization and thin clients.

Virtual PCs and Thin Clients

A thin client – sometimes called a diskless workstation or a network computer (NC rather than PC) – is a workstation with minimum processing and memory capacity and no internal disk storage.
