Teradici Pervasive Computing Platform Simplifies Cloud Delivery

By Michael Guta

Cloud computing is making enterprise grade IT services available at price points individual consumers and organizations can afford. As the technology continues to evolve and more ‘as-a-service’ solutions enter the market place, the return on investment (RoI), CAPEX and OPEX of on-premises IT infrastructure is being reevaluated by many organizations. The growth in the market has resulted in innovations that gives service providers the tools they need to build and deliver cloud based solutions. One of the companies making this possible is Teradici, a developer of industry-leading PC-over-IP (PCoIP) technology for secure virtual workspaces, which announced the availability of the Teradici Pervasive Computing Platform.

The new platform is designed to make cloud more accessible for solution providers so they can create products and service that can be delivered with more efficiency to their customers. The Pervasive Computing Platform removes the barriers of cloud integration while at the same time ensuring robust security and performance.

According to the company, it allows service providers to deliver cloud-based workspaces and vertical solutions to end point devices via pixels (not data). It goes on to say, this ensures a higher degree of security with better remote user experience with lossless delivery across all types of network conditions.

This technology is built on Teradici's PCoIP, which eliminates the need for local CPU power, making it possible to transfer the image of software running on a central server or workstation to any PCoIP-ready end-point. The PCoIP on the central source compresses, encrypts and quickly transports image pixels to PCoIP end-user devices, which in turn is decrypted and decompressed so the image can be displayed on a screen

The benefits of Teradici Pervasive Computing Platform include:

  • Accelerated time-to-value with pre-tested, pre-integrated components for building and delivering virtual workspaces and cloud-based vertical solutions.
  • Cloud security concerns are removed by using a highly secure solution that sends applications in pixels via PCoIP technology.
  • Providers can supply customized solutions based on the request of their customers by leveraging open APIs and SDKs to build unique and innovative virtual offerings.
  • The user experience is delivered with the same high quality no matter where the end user is, even in the most demanding graphic-intensive computing environments.
  • Anywhere, anytime access with the support for BYOD scenarios, from ultra-secure, easy-to-manage PCoIP Zero Clients to flexible PCoIP software clients and mobile clients.

"The rise of the 'as-a-service' models, including Workspace-as-a-Service, has spawned a new breed of IT channel partners that are faced with a difficult and complex task: aggregating and delivering SaaS applications with virtual desktop solutions across different types of devices to a broad range of users in organizations of varying sizes from both public and private clouds," said Dan Cordingley, president and CEO of Teradici.

The company is releasing two versions: with the desktop edition available now, and the workstation edition to be available for general release in the Fall of 2015.
