Deloitte Fast 50 award highlights rapidly growing PCoIP ecosystem and virtual workspace innovation
Burnaby, British Columbia – November 13, 2013 – Teradici, the developer of industry-leading PCoIP technology for virtual workspaces, has been listed #12 on the Deloitte Technology Fast 50, with year-on-year revenue growth over five years, making it one of Canada’s fastest growing technology companies.
“Desktop virtualization has reached a critical watershed,” says Teradici’s CEO, Dan Cordingley. “It’s an honor to be recognized as one of Canada’s fastest growing companies and a tremendous tribute to our employees and partner ecosystem. Their dedication to creating a phenomenal computing experience for millions of end users has paved the path for broad adoption of Teradici’s PCoIP technology in today’s virtual workspaces.”
Teradici’s business success can be attributed to a thriving ecosystem, expanding partnerships and continued momentum in the virtual desktop category. The company continues to actively pursue partnerships to develop, integrate and distribute new virtual workspace solutions and services built with Teradici’s cloud-optimized PCoIP technology. For example, earlier today Amazon Web Services (AWS) announced that Teradici PCoIP is now available as part of its Amazon Workspaces desktop-as-a-service offering, unveiled at the re:Invent developer conference in Las Vegas. (See Teradici PCoIP Now Available as Part of New Amazon Web Services Desktop Offering).

The company currently employs more than 200 people in its Burnaby office and works with more than 100 ecosystem partners globally to deliver a secure, high-quality virtual desktop computing experience across any standard IP network.
“Canadian Fast 50 companies innovate, demonstrate leadership, create jobs, and invest in R&D,” says Deloitte’s National Managing Partner, Technology, Media & Telecommunications, Richard Lee. “They are remarkable companies that show dedication, drive and commitment that are key to growth in the Canadian technology sector.”
