(businesspress24) - The VMware Ready solution helps to improve the efficiency and agility of modern end-user computing environments

Reading, UK. Aug. 30, 2016 – IGEL Technology, a world leader in the delivery of powerful workspace management software, IGEL OS powered thin clients, zero clients and all-in-one client solutions, today announced the integration of the VMware® Blast Extreme Protocol.

“We are proud to extend our alliance with VMware, and become one of the first thin client vendors to integrate the VMware Blast Extreme protocol and the first to accelerate the protocol in a media processor,” said Simon Richards, Managing Director for IGEL Technology UK & Ireland. “IGEL is committed to helping our channel partners and their customers improve the efficiency and agility of their modern end-user computer environments, which today includes a growing mobile and remote workforce, and the VMware Blast Protocol consistently provides end users with uncompromised access to their desktops and applications, regardless of device, location or network.”

Industry-Standard Approach Offers Key Advantages
The VMware Blast Extreme Protocol, a component of VMware Horizon 7, is VMware’s next-generation display protocol that uses industry-standard H.264 video compression to provide end-users with access to their desktops and applications hosted in centrally managed environments, from any number of desktop and mobile devices.

“We wanted to quickly integrate the VMware Blast Extreme Protocol because it is a next- generation remote display protocol built on industry standards, and leverages industry standard H.264 and JPG/PNG codec technology to enable exceptional user experience on a broad range of end user devices,” said Matthias Haas, Director of Product Management, IGEL Technology.

Other features and functionality now available throughout IGEL’s entire line of VMware Certified endpoint solutions include:

• Support for server-based hardware acceleration via NVIDIA GRID™ M6, M10 and M60 graphics cards; AMD FirePro S4000X, S7000, S9000, S9050 and W7000; Intel HD Graphics P4700 and Iris Pro Graphics P630


• Endpoint hardware-based acceleration for H.264 capable devices
• Lossless CODECs that enable images to be compressed/decompressed without a loss in quality
• Support for virtual channels

“We are pleased to see IGEL Technology among the first thin client manufacturers to integrate VMware Blast protocol,” said Pat Lee, Vice President of Product Management, End User Computing, VMware. “When combined with the NVIDIA GRID graphic cards, VMware Blast is a game-changer for our customers across a wide range of industries, who faced with a growing mobile workforce, are looking for new and innovative ways to improve performance, increase efficiencies and reduce the cost of their VDI deployments.”

Simple and Secure Management
IGEL’s entire family of thin and zero clients can be managed via the industry-leading IGEL Universal Management Suite (UMS), which is designed to help IT organisations more efficiently and cost-effectively run their workspace environments remotely.

With the integration of the VMware Blast Extreme Protocol, IT organisations can now leverage the UMS to quickly transition between display methods, including other industry-standard protocols such as Microsoft Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) and Teradici PCoIP, and make these changes for the entire network of thin clients, a group of thin clients, or specific endpoint. The UMS also enables IT organisations to add and remove endpoint devices, and perform software and hardware upgrades, as required.
