IGEL, a world leader in software-defined endpoint optimization and control solutions for the secure enterprise, will be demonstrating its revolutionary Cloud Workspace Endpoint Management solution at IP Expo in Manchester on April 3-4th 2019. IGEL will be exhibiting with new Gold partner, cloudDNA, and visitors to the stand can take part in “I Challenge Everything” for a chance to win an all-electric Porsche Taycan or cash equivalent. 

IP Expo visitors will see how IGEL Workspace Edition, powered by the IGEL OS 11 operating system, can be used to standardize, manage and secure any complex end-user computing ecosystem. IGEL Workspace de-couples the hardware from the software through new, flexible and transferable software licensing options. IGEL is the only full-offering software-defined endpoint management solution that supports the assignment and transfer of licenses to any compatible x86 machine, regardless of manufacturer. By separating the software license from hardware and pricing, IGEL is maximizing flexibility for its partners and customers by making it easier to acquire and manage a diverse range of endpoints.

Simon Townsend, IGEL Chief Marketing Officer for EMEA, said, “First, we revolutionized endpoint management, bringing simplicity and uniformity to complex VDI ecosystems. Now we’re revolutionizing endpoint acquisition, ownership, and support, a move that we believe is going to be very exciting for both our partners and customers, and one that will make a tremendous impact on their ability to secure, optimize and control the endpoint.”

With the IGEL Workspace, partners and customers will benefit from several features in the IGEL OS 11 that make endpoints simpler to manage. Cloud-based software licensing makes it easy for customers to manage all their compatible x86 endpoint devices for greater flexibility, hardware cost containment and providing complete insight.

Partnering with cloudDNA

Recently appointed IGEL Gold partner cloudDNA will be exhibiting alongside IGEL on the showfloor at IP Expo Manchester 2019. Al Taylor, cloudDNA Co-founder explained the collaboration of the two organizations, “While we’ve never really shouted about it, cloudDNA has been an IGEL partner for around six years with great success across a wide range of organizations, including finance, insurance and the public sector.”

“Having just received the award for the fastest growing Citrix partner in Northern Europe 2018, we are delighted to achieve IGEL Gold partner status. We’re always looking to our vendors to deliver relevant innovation that helps our customers improve the user experience and reduce the cost of service delivery. cloudDNA is best known for SDN and SD-WAN. With IGEL Workspace, we’re now able to add flexible SD-Endpoint Management to our portfolio of both project delivery and managed service offerings. It’s way beyond the average thin client conversation and super relevant to our growing customer base.”

An example of IGEL and cloudDNA customer success is with Lewisham Homes, an arms length management organization (ALMO) set-up to improve social housing in the London Borough of Lewisham, working in partnership with the local council. As part of a significant ‘ground up’ investment in class-leading enterprise IT, Lewisham purchased IGEL UD3 endpoints for IP telephony and video-based training over the desktop. IGEL’s Universal Desktop Convertor (UD3) software was also used to convert existing x86-based Intel devices into universally deployable IGEL Linux-based thin clients.

Manni Etsetowaghan, Lewisham Homes’ Head of IT, said: “cloudDNA helped with our requirements gathering and analysis, offered consultancy about Citrix and how best to deploy it, advised about the thin client selection, as well as audited our environment at the end. We needed someone with deep knowledge of Citrix, networking and VDI delivery to get the most out of our investment. That’s exactly what cloudDNA has provided.”

IGEL and cloudDNA are located at Stands M264 and M266 at IP Expo 2019 in Manchester from April 3-4.
