Highly Available Thin Client Management with Load Balancing

High Availability (HA) is an optional extension for the IGEL Universal Management Suite (UMS) and enables the UMS to offer any degree of scalability, availability and redundancy.

With HA, even large-scale thin client environments (500 or more end devices) can be reconfigured simultaneously.

The HA extension is compatible with all IGEL Universal Desktop thin clients – including PCs and thin clients which were standardized with the help of the IGEL Universal Desktop Converter (UDC) migration software.

IGEL Thin Clients are secure and reliable – even without a connection to the remote management software. With the IGEL Universal Management Suite (UMS), up to 500 end devices can be reconfigured as standard – simultaneously and automatically. In certain cases, however, extra scalability, redundancy or availability is required.
