High-performance combo: Citrix and thin clients

Sep 10th 2015 at 9:28 PM

The current changes in company IT are marked by centralization and virtualization, mobility and multimedia. Together with the IT provision solutions from Citrix, the zero clients, hardware and software thin clients from IGEL Technology offer particularly high performance and cost-effectiveness.

Close partnership between Citrix and IGEL

Citrix and IGEL – two big names within the sector – have been partners for many years. The companies have been working closely together since 2002. Back in 2006, IGEL launched the first of many Citrix-certified thin clients. The "Citrix Ready", "HDX Ready" and "HDX Ready SoC" certifications demonstrate the perfect interaction between IGEL thin clients and the XenApp and XenDesktop solutions from Citrix.

The certifications: Citrix Ready, HDX Ready and HDX Ready SoC

The Citrix Ready label is evidence of the integrated Citrix Receiver software client via which the thin clients, zero clients and software thin clients connect to one or more applications provided using Citrix XenApp or to a virtual desktop hosted by Citrix XenDesktop. The HDX Ready and HDX Ready Premium labels verify the additional functions of the Citrix High Definition User Experience (HDX). These include support for voice over IP, video conferences and CAD applications. HDX Ready SoC certification indicates a reference design which follows the Citrix System on Chip Initiative.

Multimedia performance, unified communication and client standardization

Thanks to their high-performance processors and chip sets, the hardware and software thin clients, zero clients and SoC clients from IGEL offer Citrix customers outstanding performance. The hardware platform of what is now the IGEL IZ1 HDX zero client which was unveiled in 2012 one – year before the start of the System on Chip Initiative – offers a level of multimedia performance which is unique among entry-level devices. A digital signal processor (DSP) from Texas Instruments (TI) is responsible for accelerating the HDX functions. The development work which led to IGEL's SoC client is remarkable in that the IGEL Linux operating system was specially ported to an ARM platform.

Synergies in the area of security, USB support and remote management

Last but not least, the partnership between Citrix and IGEL results in compelling synergy effects. For example, both solutions offer outstanding security, good USB support and efficient remote management, which ultimately results in lasting cost savings.
