tulix Pengarex was a client server technique. A powerful server computer was prepared as an application server. The installed applications could be run remotely, standalone or local but with remote fileaccess on the client computers. The terminals could be diskless or use installed disks for caching purposes (they were also called pengaworkers). It is outdated by advanced installation mechanisms like for example the debian installation system. Also virtual server farms can be used to achieve the same.
