IGEL presents the UD6 thin client with quad core processor for high performance computing. The combination of tailored hardware and an apprpriate server infrastructure opens up entirely new possibilities for the use of private cloud-based IT models
The multiprotocol thin client can also be used for other high performance scenarios. For example, the VMware Horizon Client 3.1 is integrated into the current version of the firmware. Using PCoIP, the solution provides all VMware customers with optimum support for high-performance applications on existing backend server infrastructures.
The UD6 premium thin client can easily cope with other computing-intensive tasks such as decoding multimedia content, unified communication and other complex applications that generate significant loads on the client side. Given the wide variety of tasks envisaged, the new power package features a broad range of peripheral ports including USB 3.0 and two digital monitor connections. With a resolution of up to 2560 x 1600 pixels, IGEL’s new high-performance class is even suited to viewing centrally distributed, high-resolution visuals, such as X-ray images.
At the heart of the UD6 hardware is an Intel Celeron J1900 quad core processor based on the latest Bay Trail chipset technology. CPUs with frequencies of between 1.99GHz and 2.42GHz (Turbo Mode) are available. The 2GB main memory (DDR3L-RAM) offers impressive multitasking performance with all operating systems. With spare computing power available too, the new UD6 offers investment security and is designed to cope with future requirements. As standard, the IGEL UD6 offers a SATA SSD flash memory ranging from 2GB (LX model) to 8GB (W7+ model). Larger flash memory modules are optionally available. In spite of its high-performance hardware, the IGEL UD6 offers outstanding energy efficiency with a power consumption of just 8 watts under full load.
“With the UD6, we’re opening up entirely new possibilities for our customers. Thanks to its high performance, thin clients can now be used to provide workstations that previously required a particularly high-performance product,” said Simon Richards, UK & Ireland Managing Director at IGEL. “As a long-standing Citrix partner, the integration of the futuristic HDX 3D technology was particularly important for us. As a result, the UD6 offers maximum performance and users enjoy the benefits of a virtual, centralized and remote-managed IT infrastructure.”
