A new book for Systems Administrators who are interested in designing and setting up a Linux thin client network has today been published by Packt. Written by David Richards, Linux Thin Client Networks Design and Deployment provides enough knowledge to understand how the technology works, make decisions about deployment, and then implement a stable work environment.

A thin client network is a client-server architecture where client computers depend primarily on a central server for processing activities. The client machines (thin clients) mainly focus on passing user input to remote services and receiving and displaying the output; thin clients aren't as much about the hardware or software as about the design.

Written by an experienced Linux thin client network designer and implementer, this book walks users through the concepts of thin client networks, and design issues associated with implementations of various sizes, setting up the framework, outlining strategies, principles, and best practice for creating the design, before running through the implementation step-by-step.

This book has all the information you need to easily set up a Linux thin client network. It will help users evaluate how a thin client network fits into an organization and make informed choices on the hardware and software needed for the deployment. The book then goes on to discuss design issues, and guides readers with building, configuring, and supporting the network.

The book consists of how-to’s for all elements of setting up a thin client network, as well as expert advice on decision making, based on the author’s experience creating a thin client network for the city of Largo, Florida.

Linux Thin Client Networks Design and Deployment is published by Packt and is out now, for more information, please visit: www.PacktPub.com/linux-thin-client-networks-open-source/book
