Beginers Adivce Please - Comparisons...
I write in the hope you can offer some help, I am looking at a thin client solution as part of a new building in our school. I have a rudamentary understanding of the architecture, we are after a thin client that can run sessions on a main (dedicated) server offering what appears to be a Windows 7 environment. Each login in, linked to our active directory structure on the main server will be able to run an array of programs varying from Office Suite programs to internet browsing. The teacher will want to be able to monitor and control if neccessary each client etc.
I have been looking at the Wyse C10LE as one option. Another consideration is the nComputing L300. Both of these were trialed against each other in Portugal recently by the government to wina contract for all government sectors. nComputing have won the contract and consequently are very popular hear at the moment. The Wyse machine came across as a more stable piece of equipment when I saw them demonstrated at BETT 2011.
I do hear rumours on the web about update problems causing down time on nComouting units but do not know how recent this is. I am trying to get a demo unit of each to let my network manager have a look at.
So the big question...
Any Advice? Recommendations? Things to Avoid? We are after a solution that guarantees user happiness and will back it up with a new server dedicated to the job.
Many thanks, Tony.
