Streamlining IT Expenses

Thin Computing and Virtualization are two solutions a good MSP will use to streamline IT expenses and provide room for practice growth. This technology offers many benefits for small to large practices.

Why Thin Computing:

  • Saves money on managing, maintaining and upgrading workstations
  • Simplifies software upgrades as they are typically handled per workstation which is inefficient and time-consuming (i.e. EHR, MS Office and more)
  • Applications are centralized on terminal servers which can be efficiently upgraded for all users to share
  • Thin clients can be used instead of full desktop PC’s
  • Thin clients require very little maintenance with no hard drives or moving parts (which commonly fail on PC’s)
  • Can’t get viruses
  • Save on costly hardware expenditures
  • No more rotating and upgrading aged PC’s while maintaining hardware warranties
  • Many existing PC’s can be thinned-down to protect your investment until they physically fail
  • Remote Desktop ideal for satellite offices or other remote access needs
  • Remote Desktop is HIPAA Compliant (Encrypted Access)

Why Virtualization:

  • Saves money by consolidating servers and less physical hardware to buy, manage & maintain
  • Flexibility to add & subtract virtual servers for growth or new solutions which can even be done remotely
  • Enables easier performance and the ability to quickly add virtual server capacity which is important for software upgrades that may need higher computing resources
  • Allows for a testing environment in which servers may be added to test new software releases or lab interfaces
