Case Study IX—Linux Thin Clients Best Choice for 1,200 Remote Users

Case Study IX—Linux Thin Clients Best Choice for 1,200 Remote Users

When the North Carolina Cooperative Extension needed to overhaul the computer system for 1,200 users in multiple remote locations, Systems Programmer Administrator Janyne Kizer found that Linux on thin clients was the best solution.

The North Carolina Cooperative Extension is a joint effort between the state of North Carolina, most of the state’s one hundred counties, and NC State University. Each participating county has an office that accesses the system, which serves a network of agricultural support staff. 4H agents, state agricultural agents, plant pathologists, entomologists, and other staff make use of the network to assist farmers with agricultural management. Ninety servers are spread around the state to support 1,200 users, with some as far as six hours’ drive from the IT support staff’s location.
