IGEL Joins VMware Program

READING, U.K. -- IGEL Technology today joined the VMware Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) Alliance program bringing a wide range of VDI-supporting hardware and digital services.

Virtual PCs, running almost any operating system, including Microsoft Windows and Linux, can be deployed to the IGEL client using either the ICA, RDP or NX digital services. Customers can then deploy additional server-based applications to the IGEL client that bypass the virtual PC such as VoIP, SAP or mainframe terminal emulation. This unique approach allows IT Managers to select the right digital services for their VMware environments and results in device consolidation, lower costs, simpler management, faster roll-outs and more efficient use of the server hardware.

VMware customers can also enjoy a large range of VDI compliant IGEL thin client hardware including traditional desktops, mobile thin clients, PC conversion cards, quad screens and LCD integrated units. This allows them to deploy virtual PCs to almost anywhere in their organisation.
