Considering a Desktop Virtualization Projectin Manufacturing & Logistics
Spending less time on IT means spending more time increasing productivity. Without VDI you may be experiencing:
HIGHER COSTS WITH ADMINISTERING REMOTE DESKTOPS
Are onsite maintenance demands consuming too many resources?
Are your networks safe from malware and ransomware attacks? Can you meet security requirements without halting operations?
INABILITY TO SCALE
Can you administer desktops to additional manufacturing plants without adding additional resources?
LOW PERFORMANCE AND LOW AVAILABILITY
Can users consistently access the network? Are slow log-on times hampering productivity?
Why consider desktop virtualization in manufacturing & logistics?
Virtualization allows IT to centrally manage all your organization’s endpoints so users can quickly access critical applications while lowering IT costs and complexity.
VDI in manufacturing empowers better IT for better business. IGEL’s endpoint management system lets you:
Securely access all data, including a secure login for manufacturing professionals who need to move from work station to work station.
IT sets user-dependent configurations in profiles so different staff can securely use the same device.
An efficient protocol communicates over the connection and eliminates IT bottleneck so users spend 100% of their time being productive.
Manage mobile and off-network users with the same flexibility as users on the local LAN.
Experience zero touch deployment. IGEL UMS offers automation of policy application so you can manage more manufacturing facilities without consuming additional resources.
IGEL Customization Builder (UCB) has numerous templates for all IGEL firmware, from integrating special drivers to setting registry keys. Customizing your firmware lets you easily integrate your legacy peripherals and software, no scripting required.
Don’t settle for a partial solution.
To get the most out of VDI your endpoint management solution needs to address all criteria.
Remote Display Protocol
Virtualization should enhance your existing infrastructure. Full and open support of Citrix HDX, VMware Blast Extreme, Teradici PCoIP, Microsoft Remote FX, as well as other protocols optimizes your existing environment. Only IGEL supports multiple versions of the Citrix Receiver in a single box.
Ease of Use
Remote endpoint management needs to give users a familiar frontend workspace matched with powerful backend controls. IGEL is tailor-made for enterprise and optimizes endpoint management while guarding intellectual property.
Manufacturing professionals require certain technologies to do their jobs. Fully embedded support for smart card readers, two-factor authentication and custom partitioning.
Mergers and an increasingly mobile workforce are staples of today’s business environment, requiring you to respond to seemingly overnight growth. Remote management should be as easy for 10,000 devices as for 10.
Secure by Design
Read-only file system ensures that the system cannot be manipulated. “Trusted execution” means that every boot up is a secure boot up.
With virtualization, a partial solution doesn’t work.
Most organizations have a patchwork of devices, applications and operating systems. Unless you can find a way to standardize all your endpoints, they won’t communicate together or be able to be remotely managed. It’s only by integrating a single, comprehensive solution for your endpoint management that you’ll get the benefits from virtualization.
Now the manufacturing industry can extend the life of existing assets with IGEL Universal Desktop Converter. UDC standardizes all thin clients and x86 devices, regardless of manufacturer or operating system, and lets you remotely manage them on a single, powerful framework.
Purpose-built for enterprise, IGEL’s endpoint management system brings every endpoint under your control.
