Established in 2001, our initial core business was offering power solutions to a variety of users. Before we knew it, we had ventured into the education industry to meet the needs of the nation. When the Malaysian Education Ministry took a major leap forward, giving primary and secondary education a complete makeover with the introduction of technology in classrooms, we saw an opportunity for growth. Taking baby steps, we started by providing power solutions and audio/visual solutions. Little by little, we found ourselves supplying more and more technological products that could find a place in the education industry. We were then known as Portable Power and we spent many years servicing Government projects and forming key partnerships with various business leaders. With this, we were able to offer clients the industries' best solutions at attractive prices.
We built our reputation as a leading distributor and supplier of technological products for the education sector. Proof of this is the presence of our products in thousands of schools, and hundreds of thousands of classrooms across Malaysia. As we transformed into the leading ONE-STOP solutions centre for all technological needs in the education sector, our name needed to undergo a transformation of its own.
We are now Veridian Distribution Sdn Bhd... bridging education and technology. With products ranging from audio/visual equipment to security systems, we carry virtually every next generation product that gives the modern school an added advantage. With education as our primary focus, we strive to provide the ultimate learning experience by implementing solutions that are not only affordable, but innovative and interactive.

Tomorrow's Technology Today
IGEL Thin Clients
Thin Client and Cloud Computing
Veridian offers IGEL thin client solution as we gear towards host based centralized cloud computing. With these solutions, the cost of computing is lowering as the hardware requirements reduce.
A typical thin client architecture for a company only comprise a server with the necessary software, and monitors & IGEL thin client or IGEL Universal Desktop for each user. IGEL Universal desktops cost a fraction of the standard PC, and clients see extra savings as only one original software is required for the server, compared to multiple software licenses for all the computers in the company.
Thin clients are a cost efficient and energy saving alternative to PCs. It increases the data security and Compliance with laws and regulations like HIPPA. All sensitive data are not stored locally and the use of USB-ports can be managed remotely by the administrator.
Thin clients come without fans or rotating hard drives therefore they are much more reliable than PCs and increase the overall availability of IT. The low energy consumption helps to reduce costs and CO2 emissions. Together with an efficient remote administration of all local thin client settings they offer a fast return on investment. The introduction and roll out of Cloud Computing or virtual desktops or classis server-based computing becomes economically favourable when cost efficient thin clients replace PCs. The Total Cost of Ownership / TCO of the IT infrastructure is decreased sustainably.
Future-readiness due to their technological versatility and flexibility, including direct access to IBM mainframes and many other legacy hosts, server-based computing (Microsoft, Citrix, Linux), VDI (VMware View, Citrix XenDesktop, Microsoft RemoteFX, Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization, Quest vWorkspace), cloud services and VoIP.
Investment protection through ongoing firmware updates and enhancements (at no extra charge). Supported protocols and clients: Microsoft RDP including RemoteFX, Citrix ICA including HDX, PCoIP, NoMachine NX, SPICE, Ekiga (VoIP), Citrix Access Gateway, Cisco VPN, NCP Secure Client, etc.? • Minimal infrastructure costs: a selection of optimum IT provisioning methods for standard, medium and power users.
Minimal power consumption due to the latest processor technology, such as Via Nano.
Soft migration by means of the IGEL Universal Desktop Converter (UDC) software, which provides secure operation and centralized management of older, legacy PCs, selected nettops and specially prepared thin client models from certain other manufacturers.
Consistent remote management: standardized, efficient and free remote management capability provided by the industry-leading IGEL Universal Management Suite (UMS) management software

Universiti Pendidikan Sultan Idris (UPSI) or Sultan Idris Education University is one of the oldest higher learning
institutions in Malaysia. The school was established in 1922 first as a training institution for Malay teachers. Then in
May 1997, because of the country’s plan to boost the production of teachers in both the primary and secondary
levels, the school was upgraded to a university status and renamed as it is today.
UPSI has 9 faculties in both the undergraduate and postgraduate programs covering Languages and
Communication, Music and Performing Arts, Education and Human Development, Science and Mathematics, Art,
Computing and Creative Industry, Management and Economics, Sport Science and Coaching, Human Sciences and
Technical and Vocational Education.
UPSI’s main campus is found in Tanjung Malim and a new one is being built in Proton City, which is just 5km away.
In the new campus, 5 resident halls are being built, each able to accommodate 1000 students.
When the university’s ICT team began considering a move to server-based computing and thin clients back in 2009,
the overall driver was the need to reduce cost and time spent on maintaining their 3000 PCs spread across the
“We need computing in almost every part of the campus and we were spending more and more time assisting staff
and students with PC issues, patching and upgrading the PCs,” explained Mohd Nazri bin Md.Saad, ICT Director at
the University. “We looked at the thin clients available on the market and chose IGEL as our provider.”
The university installed a Sun Blade X6270 server farm, with Citrix Presentation Server and began rolling out IGEL
UD3 thin clients across the university. Today staff use the devices for all of their work activities and the thin clients
are also available for use by the students in the computer labs and the library.
“The IGEL devices make a lot of sense in the university,” said Mr Nazri Saad. “All staff and technicians use our
University Integrated Management System, which is a portal for all our work activities, including email, booking
holidays, paperwork and so on. The beauty of using the IGEL thin clients is that if anything goes wrong with our
servers, they can still access the portal through the Internet, via a web browser, to carry on working.”
The students also use the thin clients for study and research in certain areas of the university. The devices are perfect for this scenario as they are almost noiseless, without
any moving parts such as a fan, secure and free from viruses. Mr Nazri Saad added that the Heads of Department also enjoy the staffs working on the IGEL devices
because it ensures they stay focused on their work. “We are able to ensure that the students cannot access social media websites or watch videos for example, while they
are working with the devices. They are also useful in helping the staff to experience and get used to cloud computing.”
For the ICT Department there are also a large number of additional benefits. “The roll-out of the thin clients is quick and easy using the IGEL management software,”
explained Mr Nazri Saad. The IGEL Universal Management Suite (UMS), which comes free with every device, can be used to set-up, maintain and upgrade all the IGEL
thin clients from a central location. It is a simple to use management tool, which can have thin clients up and running in minutes. Intuitive to use, secure and scalable up to
100,000 thin clients, the IGEL UMS drastically reduces management time for IT administrators.
The university now has just 3 technicians looking after its 500 IGEL thin clients because all updates and most user problems can be handled remotely. The ICT Department
also expects to continue saving money moving forward as the life expectancy of an IGEL thin client is 6-8 years, compared to the 3 years of a PC. The IGEL devices are
also designed to be flexible to deal with future IT developments. The firmware that comes standard with IGEL Universal Desktops contains a great variety of integrated
software tools, clients and protocols. These features allow users to directly access the greatest variety of centralized IT infrastructures. They include traditional server-based
computing (SBC) environments (Microsoft® Windows®, Citrix® and Linux) as well as virtual desktop environments (VMware®, Citrix® or Microsoft®). It also covers legacy
and SAP host systems. In addition to Java-based or Web-based applications, the IGEL thin clients can handle direct multimedia streaming or VoIP by means of thin client
and headset (softphone).
Moving forward, the ICT team will be rolling out more IGEL thin clients when its new University Campus opens before the end of the year. “We will continue to run the server
farm at the existing facility and extend our network to the new campus 5km away. We have already tested this network and we were very happy with the performance of the
IGEL devices,” explained Mr Nazri Saad.
