Save some Green by Going Green
with Tisio Thin Clients
There are many benefits to switching from PCs to
thin clients with a resulting benefit to our environment. Research has found that
PCs use substantially more energy than thin clients do. On average, PCs require
between 65 – 250 watts of energy whereas thin clients require only about
40 watts, including the server.
"Using an estimate of 22.9 million
business desktop PCs in operation around the U.S., businesses could be saving
a total of about $354.7 million a year and cutting CO2 emission by about 2.45
billion pounds." (Thin
Clients Save Energy, Spare CO2 - eWeek)
Tisio thin clients require only
7 watts. These energy efficient small units run cooler, weigh less therefore saving
on transportation cost and are extremely powerful. Many different options are
available including a choice of CE.Net, Linux, and XPe.
"Green" Factors to Consider:
Energy Consumption: Tisio thin clients require only 7 watts of energy
per hour compare to an average of 65-250 watts required by a PC, saving money
and resources. Thin clients are also cooler resulting in less power needed for
cooling an office (air conditioning, fans, etc.)
Life Span: Thin clients last approximately 4-6 years longer than their
PC counterparts = Less Wasted Hardware. Computer hardware is damaging to the environment.
Thin clients lessen the burden on our environment because they last longer, are
smaller and can be recycled easier.
Management: Thin clients can be managed from one central location, therefore
maintenance can be performed on remote desktops without having to be at the user’s
More Efficient Use of Resources:
Thin clients only use the exact amount of resources required by the current task
whereas a PC is setup to operate with the maximum load that the user needs.
Compliant: Tisio Thin Clients meet the RoHS regulation regarding the
restriction of the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic
