Teradici Arch Published Desktop Technology Preview Now Available

Teradici, the developer of the innovative PC-over-IP® (PCoIP®) protocol that enables a true PC experience for cloud delivered desktops, today announced the availability of its Teradici Arch™ published desktop software technology preview. Teradici Arch delivers session-based Microsoft® Remote Desktop Services (RDS) desktops using the high performance PCoIP remote display protocol, the same protocol currently used in the VMware View® solution. With Teradici Arch, IT managers who deploy Microsoft RDS desktop environments can now ensure consistent performance and security to RDS desktops while enabling rich media and remote access for users. Teradici Arch allows IT managers to use all PCoIP-based solutions in their RDS deployments, including zero clients from Teradici OEM partners and the Teradici APEX server offload card for enhanced PCoIP performance and user experience.

The Teradici Arch technology preview can be downloaded from the Teradici technical support website and used free of charge for an unlimited number of users for up to 180 days.

“We are very impressed with the benefits the Teradici Arch software delivers. It was easy to install and streamlined our existing VMware and RDS infrastructure," said Phillip Valenta, Watson School system administrator, Binghamton University. "The ability to deploy zero clients to all of our desktops, including those running RDS sessions, is something we've been interested in since we started investigating desktop virtualization several years ago. With Arch we can now centrally broker multiple computing resources without adding complexity for the end user. Utilizing Teradici technologies have enabled us to achieve an on demand computing infrastructure contributing towards our building’s Platinum LEED Certification.”

“DHDW is committed to exceeding our customers’ expectations by providing the most innovative and effective remote desktop solutions. With Microsoft RDS being a widely used technology within our customer base, we are thrilled that Teradici Arch is bringing PCoIP performance and security to RDS,” said Devin Henderson, solutions architect and cofounder, DHDW Consulting, LLC. “By coupling this technology with the APEX server offload card we can accurately support a high performance, scalable solution."

With Teradici Arch, IT managers can take advantage of the only solution that enables access to the full ecosystem of PCoIP products and delivers the following benefits:

· Simplified mixed environments—The ability to broker and manage both VMware View VDI and RDS session desktops through VMware View Manager

· Improved user experience—The adaptive PCoIP protocol provides a rich, interactive experience over any network (LAN, WAN and wireless), expanding the capabilities of RDS deployments to include rich media and remote access

· Security—PCoIP zero clients are the only client devices that do not have a general purpose CPU, local data storage or application operating systems, resulting in the most secure, easiest to manage desktop clients available

· Cost savings—Teradici Arch enables the TCO savings experienced with low maintenance, ultra-secure PCoIP zero clients and eliminates the need for expensive VPN products

· Consistent performance—The ability to use the innovative Teradici APEX server offload card to offload image encoding tasks and reduce peaks in CPU utilization to protect and ensure a consistent user experience regardless of task and activity level

· Non-disruptive add-on—Teradici Arch is a simple software solution that allows customers to leverage existing infrastructure, including VMware’s connection server to deliver load balancing and fault tolerance capabilities, ensuring predictability and consistency across a farm of Windows servers

“Today’s virtualized desktop environments typically consist of mixed technologies, which tend to present management and performance challenges,” said Brett Waldman, research manager, client virtualization software at IDC. “With Arch published desktop software, IT can deliver secure and easily managed desktops, with a single protocol and advanced capabilities that improve performance and user experience for both VDI and RDS environments. Cost-effective, easy-to-use solutions like Teradici’s can reduce the complexity and TCO of virtual desktop deployments.”

“At Teradici, we are constantly looking for new and innovative ways to provide the best possible VDI experience for end users,” said Trent Punnett, vice president of marketing, product management and systems engineering, Teradici. “Through early product trials, we’ve discovered how compelling the use of the PCoIP protocol for terminal services is to our customer base. Teradici Arch delivers a highly secure, centrally managed desktop with advanced capabilities, and illustrates how the PCoIP protocol delivers the best in remote desktop computing experiences for both VDI and RDS desktop users. We are thrilled to provide customers with access to Teradici Arch through this technology preview.”

The Teradici Arch solution will be generally available in Q3, 2013 and sold for a list price of USD $60, per named user through Teradici distribution channels. This is a perpetual license and includes the first year of maintenance and support from Teradici. Subsequent years of maintenance and support are available for USD $10, per named user.

About PCoIP Technology

Teradici’s PCoIP protocol is an innovative remote display technology that allows the user’s desktop operating system, applications, and data to reside in the datacenter, eliminating the need for traditional desktop workstations, PCs and thin clients, and delivers an uncompromised user experience to each person, anywhere, over any network and to any type of device without incurring the security risks associated with having data reside in remote PCs, laptops, or tablets. PCoIP technology provides high resolution, full frame rate 3D graphics and high-definition media, with full USB peripheral interoperability, locally over a LAN or remotely over a high-latency WAN. It compresses, encrypts and encodes the entire computing experience at the datacenter and transmits it 'pixels only' across a standard IP network to secure, stateless PCoIP zero clients, thin clients, and mobile devices.

The PCoIP protocol is implemented in several software configurations, including VMware View™, the industry leading desktop virtualization platform as well as in silicon for hardware accelerated performance and enhanced security. A growing ecosystem of over 30 third-party vendors provide a wide variety of PCoIP products including server plug-in cards, rack and tower workstations, blade PCs, zero clients, integrated monitors, and IP phones with PCoIP capability.

The essence of data analysis involves setting up data pipelines that consist of several operations that are chained together – starting from data collection, data quality checks, data integration, data analysis and data visualization (including the setting up of interaction paths in that visualization). In our opinion, the challenges stem from the technology diversity at each stage of the data pipeline as well as the lack of process around the analysis.
