Universal Management Suite (UMS)

UMS and its simple yet powerful user interface make it easy for a non-expert to control and manage from just a few to up to 100,000 IGEL OS-powered endpoints with minimal training. In addition to making end-user computing management massively scalable yet easy, UMS features simple cloud-based endpoint software licensing where licenses can be ported between any compatible x86-64 devices and also includes:

High availability

A high availability option helps ensure the continuous operation of the Universal Management Suite even if the primary server should become unavailable for any reason. This can prove to be extremely beneficial in larger configurations of many thousands of IGEL OS-powered endpoints.

The UMS Web App provides an admin-friendly feature set, especially for performing helpdesk functions from remote locations. With this UMS web console extension, you can find the right device quickly, perform comprehensive error analyses by shadowing a device, and execute the most important power control commands – from any location, local or remote.



A REST API allows for easy integration of IGEL UMS with existing management, reporting, and trouble ticketing systems. Often a requirement in many enterprises, the REST API makes it easy for organizations to exchange information between their IGEL OS-powered end-user computing environment and other software systems.

With Workspace Edition, IT teams can minimize the time and effort needed to manage and control their end-user computing environment.


“What really made the IGEL platform stand out for us was the faster boot-up times, performance and flexibility, and the ease of management. I still can’t figure out why some of the competing endpoints are popular as none of them come close to IGEL in terms of their management capabilities.”
