Attributes of the IGEL UMS

Quick installation:

A wizard helps you during the installation procedure. You can connect external database systems as an alternative to the integrated database.

Straightforward management at the click of a mouse:

Most hardware and software settings can be changed with just a few clicks.

Standardized user interface:

The UMS user interface is similar to that for local thin client configuration. The additional remote management functions give the administrator complete control in the familiar, proven environment.

No scripting:

Although scripting is supported, you will only need it for managing the thin client configuration in the most exceptional circumstances.

Asset management:

Automatic capturing of all your hardware information, licensed features and installed hotfixes.

Commentary fields:

For various customer-specific information such as location, installation date and inventory number.

Support for numerous operating systems:

The UMS server can run on many common versions of Microsoft® Windows® Server and Linux, see Installation Requirements.

Access independent of the operating system:

The UMS console runs on any device with the Java Runtime Environment. You can also use the UMS console with Java Web Start without a local installation, see Installation Requirements.

Encrypted communication:

Certificate-based TLS/SSL-encrypted communication between remote management servers and clients to prevent unauthorized reconfiguration of the devices.

Failsafe update function:

If a thin client fails while the update is in progress, e. g. as a result of a power outage or loss of the network connection, it will still remain usable. The update process will then be completed when the device next boots.

Based on standard communication protocols:

There is no need to reconfigure routers and firewalls because the UMS uses the standard HTTP and FTP protocols.

Support for extensive environments:

The IGEL Universal Management Suite can be scaled to accommodate several thousand thin clients.

Group and profile-based administration:

The thin clients within a given organizational unit can be administered easily via profiles. If members of staff move to another department, the administrator can change the settings with a simple drag-and-drop procedure.

Trouble-free rollout:

IGEL thin clients can be automatically assigned to a group on the basis of either the relevant subnet or a list of MAC addresses provided by IGEL. They then automatically receive the configuration settings for the group.

Comprehensive support for all configuration parameters:

Most IGEL thin client settings, e. g. device or session configurations, can be changed via the UMS user interface.

Transferral of administrative rights:

Large organizations can authorize a number of system administrators for different control and authorization areas. These administrative accounts can be imported from an Active Directory.

Planning tasks:

Maintenance tasks can be scheduled to take place during the night so that day-to-day operations are not disrupted.

VNC shadowing:

Members of the IT support team have remote access to thin client screens, enabling them to rapidly identify problems and demonstrate solutions directly to users.
