instalación descentralizada/edificio no centralizado
Explanation:
Tiene razón Carvallo y no se trata de finanzas, pero sí de un tipo de arquitectura informática utilizada por corredores y agentes bursátiles.

Es el caso en que los servidores de datos están alojados en un edificio seguro (en cuanto a copias de seguridad, redundancia, fiabilidad, etc.) y los usuarios o clientes se encuentran distribuidos en forma independiente, comunicándose por Internet. Son estas últimas instalaciones las que, por tener una mínima cantidad de equipo (no almacenan datos), admiten que las instalaciones sean más "delgadas" (menos voluminosas). Incluyo algunas frases descriptivas:

• Where the decision is to site central equipment away from a user building, the user buildings are typically known as "Thin Buildings" - a thin building is one that has desktop equipment only. (http://www.globalservices.bt.com/LeafAction.do?Record=fin_mk...

• It is one of the only trading environments in the world to operate a 'thin-building' design, whereby all major technology hardware, equipment and data storage is housed offsite. This minimises the building's power usage and carbon emissions, as well as maximising data protection. (http://www.bp.com/sectiongenericarticle.do?categoryId=900966...

• Benefits of BT’s approach to business continuity for trading
operations include: ‘Thin buildings’ in vulnerable sites no longer contain critical hardware. (http://195.92.138.174/resources/financial_markets/february_0...

Thin Building Architecture: Allows for geographic separation of the front room turrets and the back room equipment, resulting in resource efficiencies and greater protection of the back room in a hardened data center. (http://www.nortel.com/prd/dpp/product/prodpages/collateral/a...

• The networking overhaul is an implementation of a "thin building" architecture that effectively separates back-room switching equipment from the user interface. (http://db.riskwaters.com/public/showPage.html?page=202939)

• This ranges from fully distributed native IP “thin-building” solutions, operating over the customers’ converged WANs and LANs, to traditional single-site configurations with TDM to the desk. (http://btplc.com/News/Articles/ShowArticle.cfm?ArticleID=80e...

El hecho de que casi todos los ejemplos utilicen el término entre comillas, seguido de una explicación, parecería indicar que no se trata de un concepto demasiado conocido. En consecuencia, si fueras a utilizar una traducción más literal, como "edificio liviano", el lector no te comprendería. Sí podrías, por ejemplo, utilizar ambos conceptos: instalación descentralizada ("edificio delgado").
