Abstract [en]

The object of this degree project is to investigate, test, and implement a platform for supplying an increased offer of services by means of running programs on a central server from thin clients. The goal is that Kebne, where the work has been done, should be able to sell a complete computer solution, where all the computing power and storage is at Kebne’s computer hall, in order to minimize the total cost of both hardware and support.

I have shown how it is possible for 70 users to use thin clients and run their complete Microsoft Windows environment on one central terminal server. This thesis describes how to set up a terminal server, how to design the network, and how to calculate both performance for such a system as well as its economy. It does this by identifying the limitations and key costs of such a system.

However, the result is not as promising as it first seems, since this solution costs too much to be really competitive and that the computer environment is too limited in functionality compared to a normal PC environment.

The project has also included the development of an administrative web interface where users and administrators can decide what application that should be available.
