Amazone Chooses Ericom's Virtualization Solution

Amazone Gains Savings On Costs and Resources By Developing Ericom's Presentation Virtualization Solution

Ericom announced that Amazone has replaced its Citrix infrastructure with Ericom's PowerTerm WebConnect RemoteView software. PowerTerm WebConnect RemoteView provides Amazone's employees with secure and centrally managed access to applications running on Windows Terminal Servers (WTS), including their Sage Bäurer Industry ERP system.

With Ericom's simpler, faster and cost-effective alternative to Citrix, Amazone rich and thin client users benefit from secure, on-demand access to applications and desktops running on Windows Terminal Servers and optionally, to virtual desktops (VDI). Ericom's full-featured presentation virtualization and desktop virtualization solution reduces the cost and complexity of managing desktops and branch office computing, using one management environment for both Windows Terminal Services and VDI environments.

Amazone recently extended its global operations to Russia, Hungary and other locations across Europe. As its Citrix licenses were about to expire, the agricultural pioneer decided to replace its Citrix farm with a more cost-effective access solution that enhances business agility while lowering IT complexities and costs. After a thorough evaluation, Amazone chose Ericom's PowerTerm WebConnect for its high quality, capabilities and cost-effectiveness, along with the extremely responsive technical and professional support services that Ericom provides.

"We were very pleased with the speed and ease in setting up Ericom's PowerTerm WebConnect in a Terminal Services environment," said Clemens Rittel, Head of IT at Amazone. "Maintaining the Windows-based TS environment with Ericom running on top is far less complex than maintaining a Citrix environment. For a global operation of our size, the learning curve involved in gaining the required specialized know-how on Citrix's systems is longer than we can afford, while also maintaining applications. Ericom's PowerTerm WebConnect RemoteView also provides us with cost-savings, while enhancing and streamlining the end-user experience."

"By implementing Ericom's Presentation Virtualization and Desktop Virtualization solution, organizations gain the financial and operational flexibility of choosing how to manage their resources and TCO," said Ilan Paretsky, Ericom's VP of Marketing. "As Amazone chooses to migrate their power users to virtual desktops, both Windows Terminal Services and VDI environments will be managed from a single console, making IT staff's life that much easier." Paretsky added, "Ericom's PowerTerm WebConnect delivers the same key security, reliability, performance, and usability features that Citrix provides, at a price that organizations can afford for enterprise-wide deployments."

"When Amazone sought an alternative to Citrix, I immediately recommended Ericom," said Jens Tegelhuetter, CEO, CUS IT Projects Ltd & Co KG. "Ericom's tech support team and Professional Services are extremely responsive and helpful, from initial contact, down through integration," added Jens. "In the end, Ericom's solution exceeded expectations, providing far more cost-effective and comparable functionality that was simpler to install and manage."

PowerTerm WebConnect RemoteView capabilities include:

  • Easy Setup and Configuration
  • Intuitiveness and Ease of Use
  • Centralized TS Virtual Desktop Management
  • Optional Comprehensive Hypervisor Support
  • Enhanced Security

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository.

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
