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.
Teradici Corporation has developed PCoIP® (PC-over-IP®) technology, a
unique remote display protocol which makes network delivered computing a
viable corporate computing reality. Founded in 2004 and headquartered in
Burnaby, BC, Canada, Teradici for the first time enables an exceptional
end user experience for datacenter-based computing. Through a
combination of unique graphics algorithms, flexible software solutions
and high-performance silicon processing, and workstation/server add-in
cards, the company is changing how personal computers are used, deployed
and managed. More information, including current career openings, visit: www.teradici.com.
