We are happy to announce our latest Slack Channel is LIVE! #igel-custom-partitions!
Our goal for the #igel-custom-partitions channel is to discuss, share, help, and learn about the awesome power of IGEL Custom Partitions.
IGEL Custom Partitions allow IT to package Linux applications, custom scripts, and/or files and centrally deploy them to an IGEL OS. The Custom Partition feature is part of the base Workspace Edition license.
Typical use-cases might include deploying Google Chrome, Zoom, Microsoft Teams, or any Linux version of a line of business application. It works great for allowing those applications that are best run locally to be managed centrally but installed locally.
For example, In today's world of work-from-home, Zoom, and Teams have become a requirement though running them through a remote solution such as Citrix, Microsoft, VMware might not give you the same experience as running locally. IGEL has many customers who use the Custom Partitions feature to deploy Zoom and Teams locally while maintaining the centrally managed power IGEL is famous for.
Another example, IGEL has a retail industry customer who installs their POS software via Custom Partitions directly to the IGEL OS to create a fully centralized solution for implementing and maintaining their devices anywhere, easily. Everything runs locally.
If you are interested in learning more about the awesome power of IGEL Custom Partitions running on IGEL OS, please join us in the IGEL Community.
