IGEL Technology has entered into a partnership with Quest Software for the inclusion of the Quest vWorkspace client into all IGEL Universal Desktop firmware.
IGEL said that the integration of Quest vWorkspace will allow its customers to benefit from the most comprehensive capabilities for provisioning, deploying and managing enterprise desktop infrastructures through a secure thin client.
According to IGEL, the Quest vWorkspace is a platform independent, virtual application and desktop delivery offering. It aggregates applications and virtual desktops from multiple virtualisation platforms, through a single access point. It delivers enterprise-grade management of virtual desktops and applications, transforming the corporate desktop infrastructure into an on-demand service with an optimised user experience for LAN and WAN deployments.
In addition, the vWorkspace management platform supports and automates rapid provisioning, deployment and management of virtual desktops and applications on Microsoft Hyper-V, VMware ESX and Parallels Virtuozzo Containers, together with Terminal Services and blade PCs, from a single console, the company said.
Simon Richards, general manager at IGEL, said: “The integration of the Quest vWorkspace client into IGEL’s firmware is an important addition for customers looking for an effective desktop virtualisation management solution. The joint solution lets organisations provide more flexible access to data and applications, while also improving control over managing and securing IT assets.”
Jon Rolls, vice president of product management at Quest Software, said: “IGEL’s thin client customers will now have the capability to access a desktop virtualisation management solution that delivers the flexible and feature-rich user experience they expect.”
