Failsafe operation of mission-critical business processes and compliance with applicable rules and regulations
Failsafe rollouts of new settings to 500 or more devices even while they are booting up essentially simultaneously
IGEL thin clients will boot up and function securely and reliably even if they aren't able to establish contact with the IGEL Universal Management Suite (UMS). In this case, they simply use the last locally saved settings. However, to ensure 100% availability of the UMS, the High Availability Extension offers the option of creating a redundant set of components, allowing both internal and external requirements, rules and regulations for failsafe operation of all systems to be met. In particular, in cases where there are separate user-specific configuration settings for a shared workplace, it's good practice to deploy this kind of failsafe design to ensure that all users of the same workstation can obtain their individual settings as needed. In addition, this extension enables load balancing between the individual UMS instances, allowing new settings to be distributed even in environments with more than 500 devices that are all booting up at essentially the same time.
