IGEL Sees 182% Half Year Growth Driven by USA Business Investment

08-13-2010 08:44 AM CET | IT, New Media & Software

Press release from: Igel Technology America, LLC

IGEL Technology, the world’s third largest thin client manufacturer, reported that its North American business experienced year-over-year growth of 182% for the first half of 2010 as organizations continue to invest in virtual desktop infrastructure to improve end-user computing experience and drive down the cost of delivering core application functionality. In North America, IGEL saw a significant increase of 269% in its traditional thin client business, and an even more dramatic increase in its Universal Desktop Converter software licenses. This license allows businesses to extend the life of old desktop computer equipment by converting old PCs and unsupported thin clients to fully-supported IGEL thin clients.

“Many organizations have already consolidated their back room IT operations and taken advantage of the many efficiencies of virtualization. These organizations are now turning their attention to the desktop environment to realize these same benefits. Part of the desktop equation is management of the desktop device, and these organizations are looking at ways to manage the desktop devices more effectively,” explained Jeff Kalberg, IGEL Technology America, LLC General Manager. “During this extended recession, nearly all organizations have chosen to delay further investment in desktop PCs and the related infrastructure. Now as they begin to emerge from this recession period, organizations are looking to upgrade their desktops using virtualization technology in ways that will make them more efficient and competitive in today’s tough business environment.”

The IGEL Universal Desktop is proving popular because it is an ideal solution for a centrally-managed virtualized desktop environments. With no moving parts, they are reliable, secure, environmentally friendly, and offer a sleek desktop design. Combined with IGEL’s Universal Management Suite, which is included with each IGEL device at no additional cost, organizations are able to minimize deployment, administration and support costs by managing quickly and efficiently all desktop thin client devices from a central location.

Moving forward, IGEL predicts continued growth as organizations trend toward virtualization and cloud computing for application delivery. “Nearly every organization is looking to virtualize its desktop environment, and thin clients are the ideal choice to complement this solution,” explained Kalberg. “We are seeing increased interest in Hosted Desktops, where the desktop experience is being hosted in both private and public clouds where organizations pay a monthly subscription to deliver the end-user computing experience using thin client technologies.”
