Thin Clients Move to Embrace Cloud
In this increasingly cloud-based world, the makers of thin clients are modifying them so that their customers can seamlessly take advantage of cloud-hosted desktops and software.
The extent to which the business world has implemented desktops and software delivered through cloud hosting has expanded in recent years, with companies increasingly wanting to have third parties take care of managing the infrastructure. Meanwhile, the thin client market has been struggling, especially because low-end PCs have grown closer in cost. In order to stay in the game and get the attention of desktop virtualization companies, thin client heavy-hitters, including Dell, IGEL, and HP, have taken steps to support cloud-hosted desktops.
