Burnaby, British Columbia – August 30, 2011 — Teradici, the developer of the PC-over-IP® (PCoIP®) protocol which enables a true PC experience for desktop virtualization, announced today enhanced capabilities in PCoIP Software Release 3.8. The new release offers bandwidth improvement by up to 75 percent, enhanced session resilience for mobile users and software session statistics to improve end user session management and performance monitoring.
The PCoIP Software Release 3.8 enhancements include:
“Our new release delivers a significant reduction in bandwidth consumption, improved session resilience for mobile users and comprehensive performance monitoring and diagnosis capabilities - addressing important issues for our customers and IT professionals,” said Trent Punnet, vice president of marketing, product management and systems engineering at Teradici. “Teradici is excited to introduce these PCoIP protocol enhancements to address the needs of users on LAN, WAN and mobile networks, and enable our customers to better manage their virtual desktop infrastructure.”
Teradici’s PCoIP software release 3.8 is included in VMware View 5.0.
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.
