Green Benefits of Thin Clients Outlined in New White Paper

In addition to using 1/16th the energy of traditional desktop computers, thin clients can require less maintenance and easier management for businesses of all sizes, according to a white paper released today.

"Think Thin to Go Green," the paper released by Salt Lake City-based I-O Corporation, shows how the use of thin clients can boost a company's green IT initiatives through energy savings and related emissions reductions, as well as using virtualized clients to further expand performance of the machines.

I-O Corporation, which is promoting its own line of ProEdge thin clients, explains in the white paper that a company employing 100 thin clients can spend just $297 per year powering those machines, while the same number of PCs will run up $4,973 in energy bills.

The white paper also offers examples of how CIOs and IT managers can implement a thin client strategy easily and efficiently, and outlines a case study of how thin clients fit in to a county library's green building plan.
