Company Showcases PCoIP Zero Clients Running Amazon WorkSpaces at re:Invent 2014
BURNABY, British Columbia – November 10, 2014 – Teradici®, the technology leader for creating virtual workspaces, today announced general availability of PCoIP® Zero Clients for Amazon WorkSpaces. Almost 50 zero clients from 27 of the world’s leading manufacturers are now available in a variety of form factors, offering additional device flexibility to Amazon Web Services (AWS) enterprise customers.
“Workspace-as-a-Service addresses the key IT pain points of application availability, device management and data security, while enabling enterprises to be more agile with their BYOD and enterprise mobility strategies,” said Scott Ottaway, vice president, 451 Research. “451 Research has seen this market grow to over $2 billion driven by broad adoption across all customer segments and verticals, supported by a full spectrum of enterprise devices – such as PCoIP Zero Clients, which address strict security, manageability and compliance requirements.”
Amazon WorkSpaces is a managed cloud-based desktop computing service that leverages the PCoIP protocol to compress, encrypt and encode the users’ desktop computing experience and then transmit it ‘pixels only’ to the endpoint device. PCoIP technology is a key ingredient of industry-leading cloud computing solutions, as it easily scales to meet customer requirements, providing best-in-class security and a superior user experience over a range of networks.
“Zero client devices provide Amazon WorkSpaces customers with a secure, easy-to-manage, affordable solution for their users to access Amazon WorkSpaces,” said Gene Farrell, general manager, Amazon WorkSpaces, Amazon Web Services. “We are excited that our customers can choose from a wide variety of zero client devices from Teradici’s broad ecosystem of PCoIP Zero Client providers.”
“We’re delighted to join AWS and our partners to extend the benefits of PCoIP Zero Clients to Amazon WorkSpaces enterprise customers,” added Dan Cordingley, president and CEO, Teradici. “We’ve completed PCoIP Zero Client beta programs with companies of all sizes, representing a wide variety of use cases running Amazon WorkSpaces. Feedback has been resoundingly positive, particularly with regard to cloud desktop performance, characterized as virtually ‘indistinguishable’ from a traditional desktop. At AWS re:Invent, we’re eager to demonstrate the phenomenal results we’ve achieved with Amazon WorkSpaces to date and enthusiastic about what the future holds.”
Attendees can see Amazon WorkSpaces running on PCoIP Zero Clients at AWS re:Invent this week in Teradici booth #432 or at AWS Test Drives.
With Amazon WorkSpaces support for PCoIP Zero Clients, customers can access cloud-based desktops from secure, high performance and easy to manage enterprise end points. PCoIP Zero Clients are typically deployed at a user’s office or cubicle, and complement software clients for Amazon WorkSpaces, meeting the demand for another connectivity option to the existing Windows, Mac, iOS and Android clients and in keeping with today’s corporate BYOD strategies.
