About the Graphics Agent for Linux 21.01¶
The Graphics Agent for Linux is part of Teradici Cloud Access Software. It enables Teradici customers to deliver GPU-powered physical and virtual workstations to end users via remote clients.
Users include high-end knowledge workers, graphic designers, artists, and CAD/CAM designers.
A deployed Graphics Agent for Linux requires these components:
- A host machine which provides the desktop to remote clients. The host must be a virtual machine in a data center or in the cloud. See System Requirements for more information.
- The agent software installed on the host machine.
A GPU. The PCoIP Graphics Agent requires an NVIDIA GRID card.
The GPU can be dedicated to the workstation, or shared among virtual workstations by a hypervisor. See System Requirements for more information.
