What functions do thin clients have

and where does HybridDesktop come in?

The origins

Originally, thin clients were used exclusively to establish a connection from a physical workstation to a terminal server running the virtual desktop. To establish this connection, all that was needed was a simple device with little technical equipment – THIN.

Over the years, the demands on the thin client have continued to increase. The device or its operating system had to offer possibilities to integrate local utilities, like VPN or a Bowser.



The thin client today

Accelerated by the Covid19 pandemic, the thin client has to be adapted to the new working world, and more locally executable utilities have found their way in: For video conferencing, for example, local applications are needed for the various meeting solutions.

However, any applications that have to be run frequently and then always locally cause a regular media break because the remote desktop has to be left first. The user experience suffers significantly, and significantly more so for less tech-savvy employees.

This is exactly where HybridDesktop comes in. The local layer is “merged” with the remote desktop, all local applications can be controlled directly from the remote desktop, be it phone calls, browser content or entire applications.

In addition to the re-energized user experience, HybridDesktop additionally ensures that the server is unburdened by handing over computing power to the end device, the thin client.
