IGEL Cloud Gateway on Nutanix AHV

The IGEL Cloud Gateway (ICG) implements a secure connection between endpoint devices and the UMS, both of which are located inside private networks.

Finally I found some time to implement the IGEL Cloud Gateway (ICG), which enables the Universal Management Suite (UMS) to securely manage endpoint devices outside the company network.

The UD Pocket boots IGEL Universal Desktop Linux on your computer. However, it does not make any changes to the operating system already installed on the hard disk, SSD or flash storage – UD Pocket runs entirely from the USB stick. With the latest firmware now it is also possible to turn your Apple Mac into a temporary IGEL Thin Client.

That’s exactly where the IGEL Cloud Gateway (ICG) can jump in and fill the gap.
