PCoIP Connection Brokers¶
PCoIP connection brokers are resource managers that dynamically assign host PCs to Tera2 PCoIP Zero Clients based on the identity of the user establishing a connection from the Tera2 PCoIP Zero Client. Connection brokers are also used to allocate a pool of hosts to a group of Tera2 PCoIP Zero Clients. If the Tera2 PCoIP Zero Clients in a PCoIP deployment are configured to always connect to the same host (that is, a static one-to-one pairing), then a connection broker is not required. Hosts consist of virtual machines or workstations with the appropriate PCoIP Agents installed and can include workstations with the Remote Workstation Card installed. The hosts can exist on premises or in the cloud.
For connecting clients and hosts, a number of PCoIP compatible connection brokers are available.
- Cloud Access Manager offers brokering for PCoIP Zero Clients and PCoIP Software Clients connecting to Cloud Access Software (CAS) and workstation hosts that have any of the PCoIP Agents installed.
- The Horizon/View Connection Server broker is used to connect Tera2 PCoIP Zero Clients to VMware Horizon virtual desktops and workstations with the Remote Workstation Card installed.
- Third party brokers are provided by Teradici Connection Brokering Technology Partners such as Leostream. Technology Partners can be found here.
