The Hurlingham Club Relies on Zero Clients and VDI for a Quiet,
Energy-Efficient Foundation for Exceptional Services

On 42 acres next to the Thames, the magnificent grounds and facilities of The Hurlingham Club are a symbol of tradition and history. Since 1867 the exclusive club has continually promoted its members’ well being, good health, and philanthropy, offering facilities for first-class social events, meetings, sports, and leisure.
“The Teradici PCoIP technology is easy to deploy, especially in the case of the Pivot3 appliance and Teradici-powered zero clients… It’s quick to plug it all in and it just works. Amazing.”

Hurlingham Club

Challenge

  • IT staff of 1 supporting users in 9 buildings (campus-like infrastructure)
  • Fitting modern technology into buildings constructed in the 1800s
  • Finding a VDI solution that was budget friendly for a medium-sized business

Solution

  • Pivot3 “VMware Horizon Suite in a Box” solution (P Cubed VDI appliances)
  • Zero clients, with integrated Teradici Tera2 technology
  • Teradici APEX PCoIP Hardware Accelerators and Management Console

Results

  • Ease of deployment: non-technical office staff can install their own zero clients; the solution integrates nicely with point of sale and back-office business applications
  • High performance: PCoIP acceleration delivered user experiences equivalent to traditional PCs, even for video streaming (doubled frame-per-second results)
  • Cost savings: savings of 18 – 20% compared to initial VDI deployment estimates that included dedicated servers and supporting storage area network
  • Lower cost of ownership: patch management (improved security), remote management, and visibility
