ENP Newswire - 30 July 2013
Release date- 26072013 - Cincinnati, OH - IGEL Technology, one of the world's leading thin client hardware and software manufacturers, will bring its latest-generation Dual Core UD3 and system-on-chip UD2-LX MultiMedia hardware, and its unique, world-class thin-client management system to Briforum Chicago next week.
Dedicated to desktop virtualization, Briforum is an ideal event for IGEL with its virtualization-ready product line. 'We really enjoy attending this event,' says IGEL America General Manager Jeff Kalberg. 'It's a small, intimate gathering of very technical people and that makes it extremely focused. The venue provides for in-depth discussions with attendees about their virtualization projects and how IGEL can help facilitate a highly reliable and low-maintenance infrastructure, and a completely PC-like computing environment for end-users.'
Packing significantly more computing power than IGEL's previous generation high-end UD5 single core, the Dual Core UD3 offers users a 20% boost in speed and performance enabling smooth computing and multimedia capability. The UD2-LX MultiMedia enables a full-screen HD multimedia experience via Microsoft RemoteFX and Citrix ICA/HDX. These and all other IGEL devices are easily managed by the company's unique-in-the-industry, configure-it-and-forget-it Universal Management System (UMS). 'When we ask IGEL customers what sets IGEL apart for them, they invariably come back to the UMS,' notes Kalberg. 'There's no other thin client management solution that can handle thousands of devices so efficiently and with so little effort from IT personnel.'
For those enterprises interested in moving toward desktop virtualization, but saddled with a large stock of PC's, IGEL will demonstrate its Universal Desktop Converter (UDC)-software that transforms a PC into a fully functioning thin client-like device capable of delivering Citrix, VMware and Terminal Server desktop applications, and enables easy management by the UMS. According to Kalberg, the UDC is an easy and affordable way to enter the virtualization world while preserving capital. 'It's a minimal investment and opens the door to desktop virtualization for organizations that might not make the transition due to budget constraints. It's fun for us to demo the migration from PC to TC. People are always amazed. We'll definitely be doing that at Briforum.
The IGEL team will be in booth 36.
