Teradici, the developer of the innovative PC-over-IP® (PCoIP®) protocol
that enables a true PC experience for cloud delivered desktops, today
announced the availability of its Teradici Arch™ published desktop
software technology preview. Teradici Arch delivers session-based
Microsoft® Remote Desktop Services (RDS) desktops using the high
performance PCoIP remote display protocol, the same protocol currently
used in the VMware View® solution. With Teradici Arch, IT managers who
deploy Microsoft RDS desktop environments can now ensure consistent
performance and security to RDS desktops while enabling rich media and
remote access for users. Teradici Arch allows IT managers to use all
PCoIP-based solutions in their RDS deployments, including zero clients
from Teradici OEM partners and the Teradici APEX server offload card for
enhanced PCoIP performance and user experience.
The Teradici Arch technology preview can be downloaded from the Teradici
technical support website and used free of charge for an unlimited
number of users for up to 180 days.
“We are very impressed with the benefits the Teradici Arch software
delivers. It was easy to install and streamlined our existing VMware and
RDS infrastructure," said Phillip Valenta, Watson School system
administrator, Binghamton University. "The ability to deploy zero
clients to all of our desktops, including those running RDS sessions, is
something we've been interested in since we started investigating
desktop virtualization several years ago. With Arch we can now centrally
broker multiple computing resources without adding complexity for the
end user. Utilizing Teradici technologies have enabled us to achieve an
on demand computing infrastructure contributing towards our building’s
Platinum LEED Certification.”
“DHDW is committed to exceeding our customers’ expectations by providing
the most innovative and effective remote desktop solutions. With
Microsoft RDS being a widely used technology within our customer base,
we are thrilled that Teradici Arch is bringing PCoIP performance and
security to RDS,” said Devin Henderson, solutions architect and
cofounder, DHDW Consulting, LLC. “By coupling this technology with the
APEX server offload card we can accurately support a high performance,
With Teradici Arch, IT managers can take advantage of the only solution
that enables access to the full ecosystem of PCoIP products and delivers
the following benefits:
· Simplified mixed environments—The ability to broker and manage
both VMware View VDI and RDS session desktops through VMware View Manager
· Improved user experience—The adaptive PCoIP protocol provides a
rich, interactive experience over any network (LAN, WAN and wireless),
expanding the capabilities of RDS deployments to include rich media and
zero clients are the only client devices that do not have a
general purpose CPU, local data storage or application operating
systems, resulting in the most secure, easiest to manage desktop clients
· Cost savings—Teradici Arch enables the TCO savings experienced
with low maintenance, ultra-secure PCoIP zero clients and eliminates the
need for expensive VPN products
· Consistent performance—The ability to use the innovative
server offload card to offload image encoding tasks and
reduce peaks in CPU utilization to protect and ensure a consistent user
experience regardless of task and activity level
· Non-disruptive add-on—Teradici Arch is a simple software
solution that allows customers to leverage existing infrastructure,
including VMware’s connection server to deliver load balancing and fault
tolerance capabilities, ensuring predictability and consistency across a
farm of Windows servers
“Today’s virtualized desktop environments typically consist of mixed
technologies, which tend to present management and performance
challenges,” said Brett Waldman, research manager, client virtualization
software at IDC. “With Arch published desktop software, IT can deliver
secure and easily managed desktops, with a single protocol and advanced
capabilities that improve performance and user experience for both VDI
and RDS environments. Cost-effective, easy-to-use solutions like
Teradici’s can reduce the complexity and TCO of virtual desktop
“At Teradici, we are constantly looking for new and innovative ways to
provide the best possible VDI experience for end users,” said Trent
Punnett, vice president of marketing, product management and systems
engineering, Teradici. “Through early product trials, we’ve discovered
how compelling the use of the PCoIP protocol for terminal services is to
our customer base. Teradici Arch delivers a highly secure, centrally
managed desktop with advanced capabilities, and illustrates how the
PCoIP protocol delivers the best in remote desktop computing experiences
for both VDI and RDS desktop users. We are thrilled to provide customers
with access to Teradici Arch through this technology preview.”
The Teradici Arch solution will be generally available in Q3, 2013 and
sold for a list price of USD $60, per named user through Teradici
distribution channels. This is a perpetual license and includes the
first year of maintenance and support from Teradici. Subsequent years of
maintenance and support are available for USD $10, per named user.

About PCoIP Technology
Teradici’s PCoIP protocol is an innovative remote display technology
that allows the user’s desktop operating system, applications, and data
to reside in the datacenter, eliminating the need for traditional
desktop workstations, PCs and thin clients, and delivers an
uncompromised user experience to each person, anywhere, over any network
and to any type of device without incurring the security risks
associated with having data reside in remote PCs, laptops, or tablets.
PCoIP technology provides high resolution, full frame rate 3D graphics
and high-definition media, with full USB peripheral interoperability,
locally over a LAN or remotely over a high-latency WAN. It compresses,
encrypts and encodes the entire computing experience at the datacenter
and transmits it 'pixels only' across a standard IP network to secure,
stateless PCoIP zero clients, thin clients, and mobile devices.
The PCoIP protocol is implemented in several software configurations,
including VMware View™, the industry leading desktop virtualization
platform as well as in silicon for hardware accelerated performance and
enhanced security. A growing ecosystem of over 30 third-party vendors
provide a wide variety of PCoIP products including server plug-in cards,
rack and tower workstations, blade PCs, zero clients, integrated
monitors, and IP phones with PCoIP capability.
Teradici Corporation has developed PCoIP® (PC-over-IP®) technology, a
unique remote display protocol which makes network delivered computing a
viable corporate computing reality. Founded in 2004 and headquartered in
Burnaby, BC, Canada, Teradici for the first time enables an exceptional
end user experience for datacenter-based computing. Through a
combination of unique graphics algorithms, flexible software solutions,
high-performance silicon processing, and workstation/server add-in
cards, the company is changing how personal computers are used, deployed
and managed. For more information, including current career openings,

According to Forrester Research, every business will become either a digital predator or digital prey by 2020. To avoid demise, organizations must rapidly create new sources of value in their end-to-end customer experiences. True digital predators also must break down information and process silos and extend digital transformation initiatives to empower employees with the digital resources needed to win, serve, and retain customers.

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lead...
