UPDATE (March 2020):

There are currently Teradici Cloud Access Software listings on the Google Cloud Platform (GCP) Marketplace specifically designed for Windows or Linux-based VM instances that require a GPU for graphics-intensive applications such as Adobe programs or Autodesk Maya. Setting up a virtual machine via the GCP console is simple, as seen in this set-up video. In addition to these two existing listings, now available is Teradici Cloud Access Software-Standard for Windows Server 2016, in a non-GPU offering. This greatly reduces the total deployment cost and the number of steps, for those who do not require access to high graphics use cases. It’s never been easier to take a test-drive to see if Cloud Access Software on GCP is a right fit for your virtual desktop needs.

This April, at Google Next ’20: Digital Connect, Teradici will be presenting an introductory, educational session onRethink VDI and Deploy Remote Desktops on Google Cloud, Headache Free”, with an emphasis on several use cases and benefits of Cloud Access Software Standard.

Google has announced the general availability of virtual display devices for Compute Engine virtual machines (VMs), letting you add a virtual display device to any VM on Google Cloud without having to use GPUs, which can be powerful but also expensive.


We are excited to share the news of a key feature released by Google Cloud and its compatibility with Teradici Cloud Access Software. Organizations worldwide have been using Cloud Access Software for Google Cloud Platform (GCP) to securely deliver high-performance Windows and Linux desktops from any cloud or data center and provide a high-fidelity user experience for the most graphics-intensive applications.

Today, office workers in sectors like finance, IT or government requiring a Windows desktop, but not the full power or cost of a GPU, can utilize Cloud Access Software with Virtual Display devices on GCP for a secure virtual desktop experience.

Customers using Cloud Access Software for Google Cloud can enable this feature without extra cost. To enable Virtual Display devices, customers can access the documentation posted here by the Google Cloud Services team.
