Austin Solution Provider Powers DaaS Offering with IGEL and Parallels
In 2014, Austin-based Trinsic Technologies introduced Anytime Cloud. Anytime Cloud is a Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) solution designed to help SMB clients improve the end user computing experience and streamline business operations. Through Anytime Cloud, customers gain access to the latest cloud and virtualization technologies using IGEL thin clients with Parallels, a virtual application and desktop delivery software application.

Headquartered in Austin, Texas, Trinsic Technologies is a technology solutions provider focused on delivering managed IT and cloud solutions to SMBs since 2005.

In 2014, Trinsic introduced Anytime Cloud, a Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) designed to help SMB clients improve the end user computing experience and streamline business operations. To support Anytime Cloud, the solution provider was looking for a desktop delivery and endpoint management solution that would fulfill a variety of different end user needs and requirements across the multiple industries it serves. Trinsic also wanted a solution that provided ease of management and robust security features for clients operating within regulated industries such as healthcare and financial services.

The solution provider selected the IGEL Universal Desktop (UD) thin clients, the IGEL Universal Desktop Converter (UDC), the IGEL OS and the IGEL Universal Management Suite. As a result, some of the key benefits Trinsic has experienced include ease of management and configuration, security and data protection, improved resource allocation and cost savings.

Ovum: Igel's Security Enhancements for Thin Clients
Thin client vendor Igel is enhancing the security capabilities of its products, both under its own steam and in collaboration with technology partners. Ovum sees these developments as important for the next wave of thin client computing, which will be software-based – particularly if the desktop-as-a-service (DaaS) market is to take off.

With hardware-based thin client shipments in the region of 4–5 million units annually, this market is still a drop in the ocean compared to the 270 million PCs shipping each year, though the latter figure has been declining since 2011. And within the thin client market, Igel is in fourth place behind Dell and HP (each at around 1.2 million units annually) and China’s Centerm, which only sells into its home market.

However, the future for thin clients looks bright, in that the software-based segment of the market  (which some analyst houses refuse to acknowledge) is expanding, particularly for Igel. Virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) technology has stimulated this growth, but the greatest promise is probably in the embryonic DaaS market, whereby enterprises will have standard images for their workforce hosted by service providers.

Growth Opportunities for MSPs, ISVs, VARs and SIs in the Post-Pandemic Era
As remote work continues to stick around even as an end to the pandemic draws near, there’s been a surge in demand for virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) and Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) environments. This white paper discusses the many opportunities that have opened for MSPs, ISVs, VARs and SIs to meet this demand. We also explain how the VDI solution Parallels Remote Application Server (RAS) can help you offer more value to your clients at a more affordable cost to you.

Remote working as the norm has become a reality for many organizations. Much of the global workforce has become more mobile, leading to an increase in the adoption of digital workspace technologies such as VDI and DaaS solutions.

As more companies turn to these technologies, business opportunities have multiplied for MSPs, ISVs, VARs and SIs. Not all companies have the in-house IT talent to maintain and manage virtualized environments, so third-party service providers offering VDI- and DaaS-related services can step up to fill this gap.

Services that can be offered in this space include:

  • Consulting and assessment of an organization’s VDI/DaaS readiness.
  • Implementation and deployment of VDI/DaaS solutions.
  • Managed services to ensure optimal solution performance.

Partnering with Parallels Remote Application Server (RAS) gives MSPs, ISVs, VARs and SIs even more lucrative opportunities for growth. The features and license model of Parallels RAS allow you to maximize earnings while offering clients an all-in-one VDI solution that takes simplicity, security and cost-effectiveness to a whole new level.
