Lakeside Software – Plan your virtualization project with the IGEL Thin Client Planning report
Plenty has been written about the benefits of virtualizing computing infrastructure. For users, it increases flexibility by giving them access to their data and apps from anywhere, and for IT, it simplifies management by streamlining the environment and centralizing critical assets. Planning to implement VDI can be a complicated task, and planning for which physical assets should be converted and which type of virtualization hardware to use is a big portion of that task. IGEL offers a variety of solutions to connect to virtual infrastructure, from zero clients to multi-protocol thin clients, and even software that repurposes existing hardware as a thin client. We’ve partnered with IGEL and introduced the IGEL Thin Client Planning report through our MarketPlace program.
Available now from the SysTrack Kits portal, importing the MarketPlace Kit will automatically configure the IGEL Thin Client Planning report to be made available as an SSRS report from the Visualizer Reporting area or Report Center. The theme of the report is highlighting the value of IGEL’s solutions through discussion and usage of SysTrack data collected in the environment. Here’s a quick overview of a few of the topics discussed in the report.
It may seem like a basic idea, but the reality of keeping an accurate inventory of hardware assets can be very complicated. If you’re managing hundreds or thousands of physical devices it becomes a cumbersome task to maintain updated records about those devices. The IGEL Thin Client Planning report provides a simple chart that visually breaks down the mix of workstation types – desktops, laptops, or existing virtual machines. This takes the effort out of developing and maintaining that list yourself, and serves as a great baseline about which portion of devices may perform best as virtual machines with IGEL hardware to connect to them.
