PCoIP Delivers Powerful 3D Mapping From The Cloud

Posted by Teradici on October 28, 2016

"...a major milestone in the delivery of high-end graphics applications."  John Meza, Esri

Mapping software leader, Esri has been taking advantage of the new N-Series Azure virtual machines, running its ArcGIS Pro in the cloud with the support of Teradici Cloud Access Software.

Blast Extreme Does Not Measure up to PCoIP

Posted by Teradici on October 17, 2016

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.

Blast Extreme Requires GPUs to Deliver a Competitive User Experience

Posted by Teradici on October 17, 2016

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.

Video: GPUs in Azure for Visualization and Compute

Posted by Teradici on October 7, 2016

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.

'The Angry Birds Movie' Created With Support by Teradici PCoIP

Posted by Mabel Louie on August 5, 2016

Visual effects can make or break a movie. Similarly, a sub-par computing experience can make or break a creative professional trying to work on those visual effects. There’s a reason why some of the biggest names in visual effects and animation rely on Teradici to ensure performance that matches a workstation experience, with 100 percent color matching and full-HD lossless support, even across multiple displays and under less-than-optimal network conditions.

Teradici has been proud to help support the creative teams of Industrial Light & Magic, a Lucasfilm Ltd. division, helping bring films such as Star Wars: The Force Awakens to life, and with Sony Pictures Imageworks to help bring the new The Angry Birds Movie to life.

Bringing the PCoIP Experience to Azure

Posted by Teradici on August 4, 2016


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.
