Thin Clients and GNU/Linux Using LTSP

Jim McQuillan, Founder, Linux Terminal Server Project (LTSP)

Track: Linux
Date: Friday, July 27
Time: 2:15pm - 2:45pm
Location: Harbor Island I

Linux makes a great platform for deploying diskless workstations that boot from a network server. The goal of the Linux Terminal Server Project (www.LTSP.org) is to create the administration tools to deploy and manage diskless workstations (thin clients) in an enterprise setting.

This technology is very important to the success of Linux in the corporate environment.

We have already saved several customers many thousands of dollars and it has earned a 1st place award in the First Annual Linux Solutions contest put on by the Linux Consultants Support and Resource Center, VarBusiness and LinuxToday.com.

My talk 'Thin Clients and GNU/Linux using LTSP' is aimed at beginner and intermediate system administrators. This will give them an introduction to the challenges that await them in deploying thin clients. Whether they are adding an additional workstation at home, 5 workstations at a dental office, 50 workstations in a Cyber-Cafe or 500 workstations in a major university or corporation.
