Neither of these approaches was satisfactory and, while thin client software promised a good solution, it still had a number of shortcomings. First, thin client software increased costs because it had to be licensed on a per-user basis, (which was meant to be done away with), often causing the cost of the Citrix MetaFrame license to account for more than half of the less-than-enticing monthly fee.

The Marriage of Virtual Machines, Software as a Service, and Cloud Computing


New technology, such as virtual machines and high-speed internet communication, is leading to wider remote application hosting. Here is a tutorial-level technical explanation of how it’s being driven

thin client computing  consider Citrix , a thin client interface , as a way to economize computer memory and provide controlled access to an application. The comparison with Citrix to VM is as follows: Citrix offers virtual terminals such that all Citrix terminals reside in one name space (internal to one VM), and if there is a crash of one Citrix terminal can bring down all the others. In the VM environment, if a VM slot crashes, only that one VM crashes, and time it takes to return it online can be as short as 10 seconds. If Read More

Among other things, the value of unconstrained utility, i.e. the ability to use software freely as often as you like, will be quite high in some organizations. In the short term, customers who decide they need to do this will be better served with a short-term lease a year or less to see if this model is really beneficial to their organization. It is often the case that a long-term rental costs more than buying the equipment up front, so customers will need to ensure pricing is truly Read More
