Thin-Client Computing

But SBC environments cannot be installed overnight. It takes time and effort to transition from fat to thin clients and lay the necessary foundation in server processors. And thin architecture is not for everyone. Scalability is a problem on the server side. You'll need to add memory and processing power for the clients and applications being used. If your users spend more time processing and less time viewing the results, thin is probably not for you. But if your users work predominantly on tasks that do not require intense processing, server-based computing should be on your wish list.
