IGEL Thin Clients and VMware Horizon
Components and hypervisors
VMware vSphere integrates the industry-leading hypervisor VMware ESXi. VMware Horizon Composer enables rapid creation of virtual desktops from golden images and linked clones. These desktops can be readily provisioned and managed as needed. Furthermore, VMware Horizon with VMware ThinApp also offers a solution for virtualizing applications as well as a local mode for mobile users.
PCoIP and RDP
In addition to the Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP), VMware Horizon also supports the PC-over-IP (PCoIP) protocol. With its dynamic, efficient use of available bandwidth, PCoIP provides significantly higher transmission speeds. It also supports local USB peripherals, VoIP, rich-media content and multi-monitor configurations.
Support from IGEL software and hardware
VMware Horizon Client (including PCoIP) comes standard with all IGEL models and IGEL UDC software. All devices configured in this manner are certified by VMware Horizon.
