Thin Client Movie

JISC has produced and released an eight minute video to provide some inspiration around the use of thin client approaches to reducing the carbon footprint of desktop computing. The video features the thin client installation at Queen Margaret University (QMU), Edinburgh, and follows on from the success that QMU had in winning the Green ICT category in the Green Gowns awards.

The debate over thin client solutions over more conventional thick client approaches continues. JISC has published a tool (an Excel Spreadsheet) that will allow institutions to use either the provided generic data or vendor’s data to make cost and energy comparisons across the two approaches.
