Excitement Builds for Cloud Access Software & Platform

Posted by Teradici on October 12, 2016

We’re not the only ones excited by the launch of our new Cloud Access Software and Cloud Access Platform! Our new Cloud Access Software and Platform make it easier for organizations to migrate to any cloud, public or private, with “lift and shift” mobility of applications, workloads and desktops. This capability has drawn some positive attention and started the ball rolling on some great use cases!

The Importance of Lossless Support

Posted by Teradici on May 13, 2016

In our previous post, we talked about the importance of choosing a protocol that supports multiple codecs so that you have the best end-user experience possible, while also having the optimal CPU load and bandwidth usage. Choosing a multi-codec protocol, such as PCoIP vs a single-codec protocol like H.264, recognizes that your experience on your desktop is dynamic and that your protocol should be dynamic as well. 

When comparing protocols, however, it’s not just about multiple codecs. One of the other important distinctions between PCoIP and other protocols such as VMware Blast Extreme, which is based upon the H.264 codec, is the concept of lossless support.

Why You Need Multiple Codecs for Remote Display Protocols

Posted by Teradici on May 10, 2016

VMware recently announced the release of its Blast Extreme protocol in VMware Horizon 7, built on the H.264 video codec to enable additional use cases. As a long-time partner with VMware, we are excited to see any developments that can help increase adoption as this benefits the entire industry.

With VMware supporting both Blast Extreme and Teradici’s PCoIP protocol, many blogs and benchmarks have tried to compare Blast Extreme vs the PCoIP protocol. Most important for a complete comparison is that Blast Extreme uses a single H.264 video codec to compress the entire display, while the PCoIP protocol applies multiple codecs to the display as needed. Having just a hammer is fine if all you are working with is nails, but having a full toolbox is essential if you are building a house.
