IGEL Technology, the German company which bills itself as the world’s third largest thin client vendor, today announced the broadest range of thin client models supporting the Citrix XenDesktop virtualization standard. With all of its 22 models now supporting Citrix XenDesktop, IGEL’s digital services approach allows organizations “to offer the best user experience combined with robust desktop resilience and powerful remote management”.
The IGEL Technology range includes traditional desktop designs, PC upgrade cards, 17? and 19? LCD integrated units, wireless tablets and quad screen units.
“The arguments for virtualizing PCs are becoming overwhelming,” said Dirk Dördelmann, technical director, IGEL Technology. “Applications can now be migrated to the data center without compatibility issues. The access device choice is so broad that organizations can place them almost anywhere, and the process of deployment is no more complex than plugging in a telephone. IGEL offers the end user a thin client experience that is just like a PC but without the hassles, and we are excited to now offer this capability in conjunction with our long-term partner Citrix.”
IGEL Technology’s range of Citrix XenDesktop compatible thin clients will be on display at the upcoming Citrix Synergy event in Houston, Texas from May 20-23, 2008; and the Citrix iForum08 event in Edinburgh, Scotland, from June 9-11, 2008.
