Efficient remote management for thin clients

Aug 3rd 2015 at 10:54 PM

The thin client is already at home in many companies and government agencies. Whether zero client, multi-protocol thin client or software thin client (PC or notebook with thin client operating system) – the efficiency of thin client environments depends not only on the end device itself but also on the performance of the management solution.

Remote management versus sneaker administration

If a company covers several floors of a building, each with a number of IT workstations, administrators not only have a lot of work but also a lot of walking to do. New software may need to be installed on the first floor, the thin client firmware updated on the second floor and the scanner driver updated on the third floor. With typical tasks such as these, administrators can spend 27 hours per week covering an impressive 56 kilometers. Not surprisingly, little time then remains for strategic tasks.

The solution: remote management

What can be done? Invest regularly in new sneakers? Install a lift? Or wait until teleporting technology finally becomes available? Remote management software provides a cost-effective and lasting solution to the problem. With the IGEL Universal Management Suite (UMS) for example, administrators can easily remote administer and centrally manage a wide range of thin clients, zero clients and software thin clients from the German market leader IGEL Technology.

IGEL UMS: central management of thin clients, zero clients and software thin clients

Straightforward thin client management, optimized workflows

Via the network, administrators access the end devices spread throughout the building from any location and can easily assign to them all necessary settings using the mouse. What is more, they can do so in a guideline-based manner and grouped according to departments or user types. The UMS' graphical user interface is remarkably simple, intuitive and user friendly. The system can be set up and operated in three simple steps: installing the UMS, importing or setting up the thin clients, and the administration itself.

Global management via WAN

At IGEL, what works on a small scale works on a large scale too. With the IGEL UMS, all thin client profiles can be recorded in a central database. The administrators access this via a management console. Via this management console, the relevant individual devices or groups of thin clients, zero clients and software thin clients can be remote managed. For large-scale installations, IGEL offers a High Availability extension which makes it possible to balance server load or achieve UMS server and database redundancy.

Summary: enormous saving of time

At the end of the day, companies and government agencies benefit from a secure connection to individually grouped thin clients, zero clients and PCs/notebooks with the IGEL operating system as well as a secure flow of data and reliable operation.
