ThinC Efficiency Projects
The aim of the ThinC Efficiency project is to test, through actual measurements, the hypothesis that thin client technology offers energy saving when compared to the more traditional “thick client” desktop PC plus central file and print server facilities.
To undertake this project, the research team aims to monitor the energy use of comparable thin and thick client deployments, while they are being used to support an application set which is delivering a typical range of activities within a university environment. The research team comprises a mixture of academic, technical and estates management colleagues.
