Frequently asked questions
A Thin Client is a low performance computer designed purely to connect to a remote cloud based server. All the applications work on the remote server and not on the Thin Client. A Smart Client provides the same connectivity to a remote cloud server but it can also run local applications and has the capacities of a higher specification PC. This includes the ability to run Outlook, Microsoft Office and collaboration products such as Microsoft Teams and Video conference applications such as Zoom.
- The Smart Client is about the size of a paperback book and includes a VESA mounting bracket, which allows the device to be fixed to a variety of surfaces such as walls, or on the rear of a PC monitor. This makes the unit ideal for spaces where desk space is limited.
- Extremely efficient, the Cranberry runs on as little as six Watts, significantly less than the usual 40W-80W used by a regular PCs.
- Very low maintenance, the Cranberry has been designed for remote deployment and remote management, ideal for large-scale projects where many units are involved.
- It is a solid state device which can be installed in a location where noise or temperature is an issue, it also makes the device more durable than traditional desktop PCs.
As a standard, Smart Clients run on Windows 10. For larger scale projects, we can provide Smart Clients with Linux, Windows 10 or without OS for the user to install their own licences.
The user can change the operating system and it is possible to replace or increase the SSD based storage. For large project, we can also provide a range of RAM and SSD storage options.
The unit has a built-in Intel TPM chip that allows full disk encryption with devices running the Windows 10 Pro operating system. This technology secures any client or personally identifiable data stored in the device.
Warm air produced by a computer is extracted by the fan, often covered in dust. This exacerbates bacterial growth, which then circulates to the room as hot air is pushed out of the computer. A smart client doesn’t have a fan, so this is avoided.
The Smart Client offers 6 USB ports, including two USB3, allowing a wide range of devices to connect to, including wireless keyboards, webcams (for video conferencing) and external storage devices. It also provides option to connect to Display port, HDMI (via adapter) or VGA monitors.
Our units come with a standard 3 year return to base warranty, but the average lifespan is 5-8 years, much longer than a PC or laptop computer.
