IGEL thin clients certified by Citrix for use with intensive graphics applications

Ideal for Computer-aided design, manufacturing, and engineering (CAD/CAM/CAE), GIS and medical imaging applications
 
Using thin clients for high performance computing with graphics intensive applications is now a reality thanks to a combination of IGEL thin clients and Citrix HDX 3D Pro. Citrix has awarded both the IGEL UD5 and UD6 thin clients with Citrix HDX Premium Certification including HDX 3D Pro.
 
HDX 3D Pro is a set of graphics acceleration technologies designed to optimize the virtualization of rich graphics apps such as computer-aided design, manufacturing, and engineering (CAD/CAM/CAE) applications, Geographical information system (GIS) software and Picture Archiving Communication System (PACS) workstations for medical imaging.
 
"In the past, customers have had to keep isolated islands of PCs in their business if they were using graphics intensive applications, resulting in more costly and complicated management," said Simon Richards, IGEL Managing Director for UK & Ireland. "This certification removes that headache. Businesses can now confidently deploy IGEL thin clients across their entire desktop estate and benefit from our fantastic centralized management and user functionality and reduced support costs. With Citrix and IGEL, they will now be able to confidently provide thin clients for workstations that require a particularly high-performance system and still benefit from a virtual, centralized and remotely managed IT infrastructure."
 
With virtualized, shared graphics resources (vGPU), industries that require particularly high levels of computing power, such as architecture, engineering, planning and design can now confidently use IGEL thin clients. With their sophisticated hardware framework, they are equipped to handle even the most demanding graphics, 3D or multimedia applications. While the IGEL UD5 with dual core processor is ideal for 2D workstations with high multimedia requirements, the IGEL UD6 with quad core CPU and 2 GB RAM is the right choice for professional 3D applications.
 
The combination of certified hardware and an appropriate server infrastructure opens up entirely new possibilities for the use of private cloud-based IT models, particularly in the engineering sector. Companies using CAD, for example, can now take full advantage of the benefits of central data storage, a standardized backup strategy, security and team collaboration through the online availability of all data. The HDX Engine constantly analyzes the combined use of resources, such as the computing power of the virtualized server graphics processor, the applications and end devices as well as the bandwidth. HDX automatically adjusts the quality of transmissions to ensure that users do not experience any drop in performance. IT managers can achieve optimum scaling and, depending on the vGPU profile, can allow up to eight users per graphics processor to work simultaneously.
