Im not entirelly sure this belongs is Networking but I found it the most applicable.
I am at a small town library.
Currently, we have 10 computers for the members of the library to use. Each of those 10 stations has its own Desktop Tower, Monitor and peripherals.
We are looking to upgrade to more current hardware, and I suggested that we remove each individual Desktop and replace our system with One Single CENTRAL computer (Powerful one)
and have the 10 stations run independently off of that "Mainframe" computer.
This way we only need to update software on One computer and keep it up to date.
Any help towards this goal is much appreciated as I have no idea where to start.
Thank you.

Hi Jattatak :welcome:

I suppose you already have a local network installation for the 10 computers, check the NComputing solutions that replaces the computers with terminals or you can reuse the old machines if they are not so old and install a new server...
