Conversion Card Provides Businesses with Cost-Effective Way to Reuse Old Hardware Without Making Additional Investments in Desktop Internet Security or Management Software

In this tough economic climate, businesses are re-assessing their IT investments and looking for ways to reuse existing resources to save money, but many organizations don't have the funds available to purchase new hardware or software subscriptions to meet their evolving needs,

IGEL Technology, the world's third largest thin client vendor (2008 by revenue, IDC), today introduced its $99 conversion card that turns PCs into energy-efficient thin clients, allowing businesses to cut computing costs by migrating to virtual desktop or server-based computer solutions. The conversion card is the perfect solution for businesses with aging PCs looking to quickly reap the rewards of a more cost-effective and secure computing environment.

The IGEL PC to thin client conversion card offers full Citrix® and VMware® virtualization support with the world's first 'one click' virtual PC appliance mode, allowing customers to quickly and easily configure their old PCs to a new sever-based computing or virtual desktop environment.

By reusing existing PCs, businesses can lower the initial costs of migrating to a more effective computing environment, while immediately seeing the benefits of lower total cost of ownership and improved security from data loss and viruses.

The PC to thin client conversion card also comes pre-packaged with the IGEL Universal Management Suite (UMS); IGEL's powerful, user-friendly software that enables businesses to remotely manage their thin clients and minimize support costs, while having the added benefit of having access to IGEL's future firmware upgrades, free of charge.

"In this tough economic climate, businesses are re-assessing their IT investments and looking for ways to reuse existing resources to save money, but many organizations don't have the funds available to purchase new hardware or software subscriptions to meet their evolving needs, "said Andrew Chambers, North America sales manager for IGEL Technology Ltd. "We view the IGEL conversion card as the innovative solution to this problem; it can turn PCs into centrally manageable thin clients, providing companies with access to any server-based application or virtual desktop with the familiar look and feel of a traditional PC, for less than $100."
