Teradici is the creator of the PCoIP remoting protocol technology and Cloud Access Software, the leading solution for a cloud-ready future. The company, founded in 2004, is focused on its core mission of seamless delivery of workstations and applications for end-users.

Boosting network efficiency for employees accessing their desktops from home is one of the top concerns for enabling productive hybrid work. Read on to find out why you should consider Auto-Offload to enhance your Amazon Web Services (AWS) experience. 

Auto-Offload, now built into the PCoIP Ultra® feature set in Teradici CAS helps optimize the performance of remote desktops and maintain image fidelity for users working with graphics-intensive and motion-intensive content from home networks or other remote locations that have bandwidth or latency constraints. 

Dynamic Use of CPU and GPU Resources for the Best Experience 

Auto-Offload dynamically switches between CPU and GPU resources to best deliver whatever content is on screen in a given moment based on display rate change, whether video, static images or text. This enhanced capability makes more efficient use of the network bandwidth to ensure the user is seeing the most important display features on the desktop in that moment in the most optimized way. This ensures motion is smooth during video playback, and colors, lines and texture details are highly accurate when performing more intricate tasks such as editing, compositing, texturing, or color correction. 

CPU Offload is used by default to provide the best image fidelity, GPU Offload is used during periods of high display activity to provide improved frame rates and bandwidth optimization. This setting is only effective if the remote host and client endpoints are capable of both CPU and GPU Offload. You can select this option when you are enabling PCoIP Ultra. 

 

 

The automation of the new feature saves considerable time and effort for IT teams supporting remote workforces as well, by eliminating the need to customize the desktop configuration to optimize performance for each user’s role. 

Benefits of Auto-Offload

Using the auto-offload feature ensures that the best codec is used for a solid quality vs efficiency balance and continuous adaptive performance. Depending on the amount of display change PCoIP Ultra CPU or PCoIP Ultra GP will be used. If there is a large amount of change picked up the protocol will transition to PCoIP Ultra GPU to allow for higher frame rates and lower bandwidth. Auto-offload also ensures: 

  • Better workload bandwidth without sacrificing color accuracy 
  • No per-workload admin tuning required 
  • No burst stealing of CPU or GPU cycles 
  • No transitionary image artifacts 
  • No aggressive network consumption 

Experience Auto-Offload in Action

At GTC 2021, Teradici and NVIDIA showed how they are enabling teams to collaborate from anywhere with interactive, graphics-intensive applications like CAD, where users demand photorealism, crystal-clear wire-framing, and seamless interactivity. They used the NVIDIA Omniverse™ platform and Omniverse View, a purpose-built application designed specifically to accelerate and visualize AEC workflows, and show how Teradici CAS leverages PCoIP Ultra™ technology to securely deliver the remote workstation experience without compromise. Check out the on-demand presentation from GTC 2021.
