Today IGEL announced the release of the latest version of its operating system, IGEL OS 11.03.5000. This new version is aimed at home workers that leverage IGEL OS as a secure workspace, providing access to Office 365, Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI), Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS), and collaboration tools like Microsoft Teams and Zoom. Another big part of this release is the addition of custom partition capabilities and the new IGEL Starter License.

The customer partition capability is a fairly big deal in IGEL OS 11.03.5000. This feature allows users to use IGEL OS to support non-standard applications and protocols. Basically, this gives organizations the ability to support a “legacy” application or interface that they still need to use but isn’t yet supported by IGEL OS. This can save companies by not having to purchase IGEL’s Enterprise Management Pack subscription to support custom partitions.

The new IGEL Starter License in IGEL OS 11.03.5000 allows for a quicker conversion of hardware endpoints to IGEL OS-supported devices. This is particularly important at the moment with so many working from home. The license provides organizations 30 days to use IGEL Workspace Edition to accelerate and simplify their IGEL roll-out. Version 11.03.5000 doesn’t require activation or registration of a new installation of IGEL Workspace Edition. That company states that IT organizations can now automatically convert their IGEL Universal Desktop (UD) endpoints or third-party endpoint devices to IGEL OS using the IGEL OS Creator tool included in IGEL Workspace Edition.

The IGEL OS 11.03.5000 supports WVD, as well as Citrix Workspace and VMware Horizon 7, as well as Linux client support for Microsoft Windows Virtual Desktop (WVD) announced earlier this year.
