The Thin Client is a mini terminal capable of performing all standard computer functions. A Thin Client sits on the user’s desk; it connects to the server. The information is processed by the server and displayed on the monitor. A Thin Client allows server applications to display on the screen as if it were a local session.
Instead of each user having complete access to the company’s data, the user’s content will now be controlled by the server or servers. The user will access their assigned information through a thin client by a remote account set-up. In practice, a server begins to store and manage user accounts and the thin client accesses these accounts. The user will continue to use their programs as normal, and their OS makes migration simple.
Its primary objective is to eliminate the use of traditional PCs thus making any IT infrastructure simple and more secure as well as being more economical. A Thin Client is a complete workstation.
This model brings several advantages to the user and keeps the same experience of using an ordinary computer, thus making it one of the best. Also, management is centralized.The focus is on the server, not many computers. From installation to maintenance to upgrades and operations they are made simple and easy. Thin Client workstations are customized and monitored from a central location, increasing user productivity.
The WeeClient solution can be used in several work environments.
There is an unlimited distance between the Thin Client and the Server.
The WeeClient specialize in business applications such as browsing, text editors, spreadsheets, etc.
The WeeClient Plus is one of the smallest mini PC’s/thin clients on the market. It has a 1GHZ, x86 processor, and 512 MB SDRAM DDR2. The WeeClient is extremely energy efficient, consuming only 4.6W of power, without sacrificing its high performance. It is HD compatible with a VGA interface as well as Mini HDMI.
As a thin client terminal, the WeeClient Plus features an impressive MTBF of 144 thousand hours. That is over 16 years of continuous use! It supports all major GUI’s such as Windows 7 Embedded, Linux, Windows XP, DOS, etc. It is also capable of running the WTware operating system, creating a remote desktop environment for both Windows and Linux (Linux requires XRDP).
The product comes with a WTware license, specially developed to support RDP (Windows systems). In addition to accepting PXE Boot (download OS over the network ), the WeeClient also allows the use of a storage device ( SD Card) for local OS installation.
Its VESA standard mounting allows it to be attached to the monitor screen.

An operational system was developed for ThinClients.
WTware is optimized for network boot.
There is no need to install an operating system on hard drive.
There is no need for a hard drive at all.
Just connect a new computer to the network, select network booting in BIOS — and then the thin client is ready to use.
In remote branches, WTware may boot from USB flash or CDROM.
WTware is easy to configure. WTware includes services for a network boot. In the simplest case (single server, single subnet, no DHCP) it is enough to install WTware on the server. The setup will perform all needed server configuration, and the thin clients will be able to boot. For further workplace tuning uses a graphic configuration file.
WTware works with all standard RDP servers. Tested on Windows Server Terminal Services from 2000 to 2012R2, Hyper-V VDI, Windows Remote Desktop Services xrdp on Linux, Mac Terminal Server, XP Unlimited.
Using the software application control tool, one can see which applications and Windows resources each user, or user groups, will access. For example, if one person is authorized to access only the financial programs and text editors, the application control of AADS is used to a grant user access to only those two requests.
The solution also features FARM. FARM consists of having multiple servers running at the same time, for failure tolerance and loading balance. This feature is important, as it helps prevent the system from stopping, even if one of the servers is defective.
The AADS Server turns a computer with Windows into a terminal server with five, ten, or unlimited simultaneous RDP connections, depending on the type of license purchased.
The RDP protocol allows several users to use independent sections, simultaneously, on the same server, through terminals such as a Thin Client. The network management of an AADS Server is centralized at a single point, providing greater security, control, agility, and quality in operations.
Unlimited user connections via RDP.
User authentication of a network domain.
Authentication of local users defined in Windows.
Load balancing and distribution between the Farm.
Publication and control applications for domain and local users.
