Teradici and Microsoft Collaborate to Enable Automated Deployment of Windows VMs for Game Creators to Work Remotely  

With the rise of hybrid working models, companies across all industries need to be able to provide a secure, productive remote work experience for employees that feels just like being in the office or studio. For game developers, it’s essential to have a flexible remote work solution that enables creators to access their game development tools from anywhere, without compromising on performance.

Microsoft and Teradici have partnered to deliver a solution that supports in-office, remote and hybrid game creatives everywhere and anywhere, on any device, using Microsoft Azure, the cloud with more datacenter regions around the world than any other cloud provider, and Teradici CAS, the most secure and high-quality remote desktop experience. 

“We’re thrilled to partner with Teradici to deliver tools, services, and support to game creators across the world,” said James Gwertzman, General Manager for Gaming Cloud at Microsoft. “Remote work capabilities are increasingly important for game developers, and the combination of Microsoft Azure and Teradici CAS provides a high-fidelity, low-latency end-user experience that's ideal for artists and other creators, and which will unlock 'in-studio' levels of productivity from anywhere.” 

The solution enables automated deployment of Windows Virtual Machines (VMs), connecting to your choice of NVIDIA and AMD GPUs. It’s a pre-built desktop image that includes Microsoft Visual Studio for coding work, Blender, and Visual Studio App Center for mobile gaming.  

Game Dev Environment is Ready to Deploy and Use for Creators 

Deployment is easy, so teams can seamlessly roll a game development environment out broadly and begin working. Simply input a few details, and the virtual desktop is ready to use in under 20 minutes, streamlining the installation process and speeding time to productivity for game developers, artists and editors. See the deployment guide here. Plus, all of the team’s preferred devices, from Wacom pen displays and tablets to Xbox controllers are also supported. Features include: 

  • Microsoft Visual Studio (BYOL) 
  • Xbox game development support 
  • Mobile gaming capable (with Visual Studio App Center) 
  • Automated deployment (with NVIDIA/AMD) 
  • Ready-to-use Windows desktop image pre-installed with Microsoft Visual Studio, Visual Studio App Center, and Blender 
  • Windows and Teradici CAS updates accessible through Azure Marketplace 
  • Supports PCoIP Ultra® for the highest quality graphics on multiple 4k monitors  
  • Coming soon, the solution will include CAS Manager and all the components to enable enterprise-level deployments 

 

The solution is free to deploy through your Azure subscription, and it’s available now in the Microsoft Azure Marketplace in all Azure regions. Licenses for other applications, including Teradici CAS, can also be accessed through Azure Marketplace.

Game development workstations demand high frame rates, low latency, amazing responsiveness, as well as high quality for the visual aspects.

For developers, artists, and IT professionals who require the local, under-the-desk experience of their workstation in their gaming studio but are situated elsewhere, Teradici PCoIP solutions offer the ultimate flexibility without compromising on performance.
