What is more, because the centralized virtual machine is always on, the user can instantly start from where they were previously, without having to wait for a machine to start. This gives a company incredible flexibility with their workforce, as users do not have to transport a PC with them should they change location. With the appropriate network speed and structure, a user can even move to another part of the country and maintain access to their desktop. The instant connection and resumption capability also helps to increase productivity. The Zero Client itself requires no software installation and virtually no setup. If all user information is already prepared, it is simply a case of the Zero Client making the connection to the desktop virtualization server and then the user is ready to go in minutes. For a large number of Zero Clients this can reduce the time required for a roll-out from weeks to days. The user benefits from the minimum downtime when getting a new device, the company gains from the huge increase in productivity this brings. Zero Clients are fundamentally more reliable than a standard PC. With no moving parts, no storage and no software, they are very unlikely to suffer mechanical failure and cannot be corrupted by viruses or failed installations. Any faults that develop with the user's desktop environment can be quickly solved at the server backend, eliminating the high costs associated with service call outs. In the unlikely event of hardware failure, the user does not have to wait for a repair as the Zero Client can be replaced with a functioning device within minutes, allowing the user to resume exactly where they left off. The massive reduction in downtime helps keep a business running at optimum efficiency. Hardware redundancy represents a major expense for companies, a substantial chunk of workload for IT managers and a frustration for users. With a Zero Client based solution, companies can avoid the costs of replacing hardware, IT managers no longer have to organize hardware refreshes and the user has a device that always performs optimally. This is because the Zero Client has no effect on the speed and responsiveness of the user's desktop environment. Should more performance be needed, it is simply a case of upgrading the server backend, which can be carried out much more easily than upgrading hundreds of individual PCs. A Zero Client can hence last much longer than a PC because it will keep functioning with an evolving desktop environment.
