Rory Monaghan Project: Simplified Thin Client Management

Over the years I have worked with many different makes and models of thin clients. In previous years, the management software of most thin clients left a lot to be desired, particularly from the hardware manufacturers with the largest presence in enterprise IT, I’ll let you guess which those are 🙂 When Douglas Brown joined IGEL Technologies, it piqued my interest. When I saw IGEL were giving away a Tesla at VMworld 2017, it piqued my interest even more! I played around with the IGEL Universal Management Suite with a virtual instance of their UDC3 product (Universal Desktop Converter which you can use to deploy the lightweight IGEL OS to physical hardware. This is great for repurposing outdated hardware). With this I tried the typical use cases for a thin client. I tested with my published applications and virtual desktops. No big surprises there! Everything worked as expected.There is integration with many enterprise products including

There is integration with many enterprise products including XenApp, XenDesktop, Horizon View, RDP and Parallels. Above you see some of the different options, there are many more.

As you may also expect, IGEL integrates with some widely used SSO products like Caradigm and Imprivata.

I was fortunate enough to get hooked up with a couple of IGEL UD pocket devices, which is one of IGEL’s newest and coolest products. This device is tiny and perfect when on the go. I can even leave it plugged into my device and then just opt to boot into my regular Windows operating system or boot into my mobile workspace.
