Google's annual enterprise-focused event, Google Cloud Next took place last week in San Francisco. The three day event showcased Google's achievements during the past year as well as exciting announcements for its future in the cloud space.
The event also included keynote presentations, and many cloud-focused sessions. During these sessions, Google featured Teradici, bringing attention to our Cloud Access Software and its ability to help companies visualize and interact with GPU applications from the cloud.

2017 is the year that the Cloud becomes mainstream. It has been estimated that 92% of global data center traffic will come from the cloud by 2020, and yet already we see the cloud becoming the “new normal” when it comes to IT infrastructure.
For the past two years, we have seen forward-thinking organizations go all in on the cloud, while others have adopted an approach that embraces the cloud for only new IT investments. Based on the growing pressures and opportunities of the cloud, we offer the following predictions...

VMware recently announced the release of the Blast Extreme protocol in VMware Horizon 7, built on the H.264 video codec. A lot of claims have been made that Blast Extreme is now at feature and performance parity with Teradici’s PCoIP or that VMware will eventually drop support of PCoIP. Both claims are far from the truth. Using Blast instead of PCoIP will typically increase the cost of your server and network infrastructure while providing an inferior user experience, higher client management costs, and security exposures. These are some of the reasons customers will continue to demand support for PCoIP.

Graphics Processor Units (GPUs) are essential for delivering the rich, graphical experience for high-end, 3D applications such as CAD, GIS, Media and Entertainment, Oil and Gas Exploration, etc… However, the majority of users in a VDI or DaaS deployment are using 2D or lightweight 3D applications (e.g. Microsoft Office Suite) can easily be rendered using the CPU resources in the server making the benefits of using GPUs less obvious for these users. Thus, a properly designed display protocol needs to be able to deliver a great user experience whether a GPU is present or not while minimizing the impact on network bandwidth and the number of desktops that can be hosted on each server.

Available now in technical preview, Microsoft Azure’s new N-Series virtual machines with NVIDIA GPUs open up a range of new accelerated compute scenarios.
Last month, Microsoft's Karan Batta shared the Ignite stage with NVIDIA's Sagar Rawal and our own Randy Groves to demonstrate the groundbreaking capablities of these GPUs in the cloud.

Organizations have been considering the cloud for the past several years, with increased awareness of its benefits, which include business agility, improved data management and employee productivity. Despite its many obvious draws, organizations have struggled with the reality of migrating desktops, workstations, applications and workflows to the cloud. The uncertainty about transitioning applications and workload performance have stalled many cloud initiatives.

We’ve shared with you how you can improve virtualization performance with Teradici PCoIP Hardware Accelerator, the only product of its kind. Hardware Accelerator can dramatically reduce the load on VDI servers by not only reducing CPU overhead but also efficiently encoding the pixels generated by the GPU to deliver higher frames per second to the endpoint. Hardware Accelerator is the only solution available in the market that ensures efficient delivery of those pixels to the endpoint.
In order to show this to you firsthand, we created a video highlighting the performance benefits of the Teradici PCoIP Hardware Accelerator. This video will show you how the Hardware Accelerator smooths CPU usage peaks for the best and most consistent user experience at all times.
In July, we hinted that there would be big things happening at this year’s SIGGRAPH, thanks to our partnership with Microsoft. At the conference, we showed off accelerated graphics applications – including Autodesk Maya – running on Microsoft Azure, leveraging the new N-Series virtual machines, delivered via Teradici PCoIP Technology.
Our show highlights include longtime Teradici customers from all the major studios who stopped by to see what’s new and were wowed by our live demos running from Azure. They had the opportunity to try out Nuke with a Wacom tablet as well as Autodesk Maya from a PCoIP zero client. Customers were excited to learn that they could leverage their existing zero clients to connect to the Azure cloud. And Teradici CTO Randy Groves presented two informative sessions in the Microsoft Theater – Bringing the PCoIP Experience to Azure and Revolutionize Workflow and Collaboration for Large Compute and Rendering Projects.
