"It is quite easy for our end users to share the PCoIP Hardware Accelerator and GPU resources. It is not necessary that we plan the exact mapping – in shared mode, they are assigned as needed to virtual machines."

Challenge

  • Gaining the benefits of VDI without sacrificing user experience with 2D/3D CAD applications (AutoCAD, SolidWorks)
  • Maximizing client-server ratios (optimizing CPU overhead on the hosts)
  • Reducing the burden on IT teams at sites around the world

Solution

  • Virtual desktop infrastructure (VMware® Horizon View™)
  • Teradici® PCoIP® Zero Clients and PCoIP Software Clients
  • Teradici PCoIP Hardware Accelerator cards with GPU deployment

Results

  • Simplicity: new VDI endpoints (zero clients; software clients) can be deployed in minutes instead of hours (PCs)
  • Performance: the most demanding image encoding tasks are offloaded from the CPU; users get the full potential of the GPU experience
  • Ergonomics: quieter, cooler operation improves office environments
  • Security: zero clients keep content in the data center
