Challenge

  • High-performance WAN access to central Linux environment (CAE/CAD applications and design database)
  • Risks associated with single-vendor solution
  • Unsatisfactory software support, lack of Linux expertise, and limited hardware choices

Solution

  • Teradici PCoIP Zero Clients and Remote Workstation Solutions
  • Other product or key solution parameter (e.g., centralized applications in main data center)

Results

  • Strong working relationship: MTU and Teradici jointly enhanced the PCoIP Host Software for Linux; improved level of support (full support for Teradici solution in Linux environments)
  • Lower risk: PCoIP solution eliminates reliance on a single-vendor solution.
  • Lower costs: Remote offices can now choose lower-cost PCoIP zero clients.
