1. a terminal server that performs a computational process instead of workstations. It allows you to use server resources to run user applications. Simplifies the administration process, increases security and saves money spent on software and hardware for user computers. Eases the organization of remote access to the desktop from anywhere in the world.
2. thin clients - compact devices (mini computers) that connect to terminal servers. Thin clients connect to the terminal access server via the local network. The computing power of these devices is very weak and is only needed to ensure that the processed information is transmitted from the server. Therefore, the cost of such devices is several times less than the cost of a full computer.
