With the introduction of the Leostream® VDI client in its new Windows XPe image, IGEL® Technology now offers virtualisation support across its entire thin client product range of 20 different models spanning 3 operating systems.
Reading, England, 21st November 2007 - IGEL Technology today announced its latest Windows® XP Embedded firmware upgrade enhancing the broadest and most powerful range of thin clients on the market. The firmware allows full virtual desktop access via the Leostream Connection Broker. Any organisation using virtual PC’s based on VMware’s Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) standard can now use any Windows XPe model from IGEL’s award-winning product line. Windows XPe gives users a very broad range of digital services and full Microsoft compatibility to compliment their virtual desktop. The image contains Microsoft Internet Explorer 6, Microsoft Media Player, PDF readers and Java on most models, allowing users to deliver certain server-based applications outside the virtual PC connection. This helps organisations reduce server load and also enhance the user desktop experience.
