Teradici and IGEL Announce Expanded Endpoint Support for Multicloud EnvironmentsJanuary 24, 2019
Teradici, the creator of industry-leading PCoIP technology and Cloud Access Software, today announced a new relationship with IGEL, a world leader in software-defined endpoint optimization and control for the secure enterprise, to extend PCoIP Software Client for Linux to the IGEL family of thin clients. For the first time ever, IGEL thin client users will be able to connect to Teradici Cloud Access Software and to Amazon WorkSpaces, a cloud desktop service that uses PCoIP protocol technology. With Teradici Cloud Access, IGEL customers will be able to connect to virtual workstations on any private, public, or hybrid cloud and visualize remotely hosted applications with the security and performance benefits of PCoIP technology.
"IGEL is delighted to be teaming with Teradici to provide support for our mutual customers who are accessing Amazon WorkSpaces or Teradici Cloud Access via the PCoIP Software Client for Linux," said Simon Clephan, Vice President of Strategic Alliances, IGEL. "Together, we are able to offer a secure and simple to manage solution for accessing remote workloads, through the Linux-based IGEL OS."
IGEL customers leveraging the latest endpoint solution and Cloud Access Software will enjoy greater flexibility and choice with access to Windows or Linux hosts on any private or public cloud including AWS, Google Cloud and Microsoft Azure. Remote or mobile users can enjoy the same choices with a Cloud Access subscription and the IGEL UD Pocket, a portable universal desktop thin client that extends the functionality of existing hardware to connect to cloud resources.
"This collaboration paves the way for IGEL customers to access the latest PCoIP virtualization solutions, including Cloud Access Software," said David Smith, CEO of Teradici. "We are thrilled to welcome IGEL to our partner ecosystem and we’re excited to collaborate on compelling solutions for IGEL customers."
Teradici PCoIP solutions are used across financial services, government, healthcare, education, media and entertainment, and manufacturing industries to securely visualize applications in a wide variety of use cases. A Teradici customer in the financial services industry has moved applications to the cloud, to ensure its investment professionals can count on fast, reliable desktop performance to manage relationships, identify trends and opportunities, and even stream TV for breaking news that could affect the market.
As a benefit of the new relationship, IGEL customers will be able to purchase Teradici Desktop Access, Cloud Access, and Cloud Access Plus subscriptions directly from IGEL or an IGEL channel partner.
IGEL will demonstrate the new endpoint solution connecting to Teradici Cloud Access Software and Amazon WorkSpaces at IGEL Disrupt EUC Munich this week and at IGEL Disrupt EUC Silicon Valley Feb 5-7, 2019.
