IGEL Announces Its Latest Linux Firmware Upgrade

IGEL Technology has announced the availability of its latest Linux firmware on its range of thin clients on the market, providing customers with an increased choice of hypervisors for virtual PCs.

IGEL Universal Desktop models powered by Linux have had their Ericom functionality upgraded so they now have the complete Ericom PowerTerm WebConnect client integrated. This provides users with secure, local and remote access to applications and desktops running on Microsoft Windows Terminal Services, Citrix XenApp, Virtual Desktops (VDI), Blade PCs and legacy terminal emulation based systems. With support for 14 hypervisors, including Vmware ESX, Citrix XenServer, Microsoft Hyper-V, Oracle VM, Virtual Iron and others, Ericom PowerTerm WebConnect enables organisations to flexibly choose the VDI environment that best suits their needs.

The 9 IGEL Universal Desktops supporting Linux include traditional desktops, quad screen units, LCD integrated units and the innovative PC upgrade card that allows a legacy PC to be converted for 139/95/$160 into a powerful, secure, virus immune, virtual infrastructure access device. All models come bundled, free of charge, with the IGEL Remote Management Suite.
