Fattening up thin clients

Secure enterprise management software IGEL has teamed up with AMD to further enhance the performance of the IGEL UD7 series thin clients with the addition of a new optional AMD Embedded Radeon E9170 Series discrete GPU and a fourth DisplayPort.

The outfit said that with these upgrades, the IGEL UD7 can now support up to four monitors at 60Hz, including two with 4K resolution and two with 2K resolution.

The gear will be part of IGEL’s family of Universal Desktop software-defined thin clients where the IGEL UD7 is designed for end-user computing (EUC) environments when high-performance and access to multiple, high-resolution displays is required. This includes video production and CAD design suites, newsrooms, operations centres and hospital diagnostics centres.

IGEL CTO Matthias Haas said the most powerful thin client solution in his outfit’s portfolio, was the IGEL UD7 which acts as a virtualisation-optimised endpoint and provides end-users across industries with highly-secure access to their digital workspaces.

Stephen Turnbull, director of Product Marketing, Datacenter and Embedded Solutions Business Group, AMD added: “AMD has a strong relationship with IGEL, and over the years we’ve helped them drive a significant amount of innovation for their thin client products. The launch of the IGEL UD7 this year set a new level for high-performance, multi-monitor end-user computing. Now with the addition of an optional AMD Embedded Radeon discrete GPU, UD7 customers can improve the already existing high-quality, multi-monitor thin client computing with even more high-resolution graphics.”

The IGEL UD7 comes pre-configured to support industry-leading virtualisation protocols including Citrix HDX, Microsoft RDP/Remote FX or VMware Horizon Blast Extreme. Organisations can add or re-configure these supported virtualisation protocols leveraging the IGEL UMS to quickly transition between protocols and make changes to their entire network of thin clients, or a specific endpoint.
