IGEL will be demonstrating their software-defined endpoint computing solutions around two events this week, at the Open Source Summit in Vancouver, and right next to VMworld in Las Vegas, with the latter being something of a guerilla operation.
IGEL has been in North America for a while, but the company is now investing considerably more in its key partners and its channel program, to develop a core of elite partners to drive market share growth. They are at Citrix Synergy this week discussing future plans with their partners, who also typically sell Citrix.
An appliance originally designed to bring Citrix into the low end of the market has had its scalability increased more than tenfold, now supporting up to 5000 users. Dell also announced its new ThinOS software, which now supports Skype for Business, and is backwards compatible into the existing install base.
