BURNABY, British Columbia and Palo Alto, Calif. – September 4, 2013 – Teradici, the developer of the PCoIP® protocol, and VMware, the global leader in virtualization and cloud infrastructure, today announced an extended partnership to continue collaboration on PCoIP development and innovation that will support next-generation virtual desktops from VMware. As part of this agreement, Teradici will work to develop new features and capabilities for the PCoIP protocol that will support and complement future VMware Horizon View™ solutions.
“Our partnership with Teradici has proven very successful in the growing VDI market – both with the PCoIP protocol and proliferation of their zero client in the VMware Horizon View™ base. We look forward to collaborating even more closely moving forward,” said Jeff Jennings, senior vice president, Enterprise Desktop, VMware.
Interest in VMware Horizon View with the PCoIP protocol and for PCoIP zero clients has prompted continued investment in the complementary technologies. This partnership renewal reinforces both companies’ commitment to VMware Horizon View customers, and will serve to advance PCoIP development. Teradici and VMware will also collaborate on joint go-to-market and VMware Horizon View sales development activities.
“We are very pleased to extend our strategic relationship with VMware,” said Dan Cordingley, president and CEO, Teradici. “We have achieved joint success in the marketplace and look forward to continuing that as the desktop virtualization market grows and evolves.”
