Use Citrix to Stream Windows 7 on Thin Clients
Advantages of thin client computing include minimal environmental impact, improved network security, lower operating costs, and flexibility. Using modern technology, users can be equipped with a variety of applications and operating systems, including Windows 7.
Hewlett Packard and other thin client providers take the implementation of Citrix to the next level by deploying its "FlexCast delivery technology" that makes it easy to quickly deliver customized user environments to thin clients using a variety of configurable operating systems and applications. With FlexCast the options for using Windows 7 and Windows applications on a thin client are virtually unlimited.
Citrix XenDesktop allows Windows 7 to be virtualized and streamed to a thin client while Citrix HDX provides high definition desktops on thin clients. Windows applications such as Microsoft Office and others can be published by XenApp so thin client users can enjoy the full Windows 7 experience on a machine with a very small footprint.
Using Citrix HP thin clients such as the t5325, equipped with a single processor and just 512 MB of RAM and Windows Embedded, can run a full range of applications all within the Windows 7 environment.
