existing hardware to connect to cloud resources.

“This collaboration paves the way for IGEL customers to access the
latest PCoIP virtualization solutions, including Cloud Access Software,”
said David Smith, CEO of Teradici. “We are thrilled to welcome IGEL to

industry has moved applications

reliable desktop performance to manage relationships, identify trends
and opportunities, and even stream TV for breaking news that could
affect the market.

As a benefit of the new relationship, IGEL customers will be able to
