In this guest post, Imprivata's Chris Feeney looks back at some of the milestones leading to the IT security company's success in the healthcare industry.
It was February 2012 at HIMSS in Las Vegas when I first got a glimpse into the future of end-user computing. Little did I know that it would dominate much of my career over the next five years at Imprivata, and in particular within the healthcare industry.

Moore’s law continues to provide ever more powerful server processors that provide the ability to support more virtual desktops per server and improve the cost per desktop accordingly. How do these more powerful servers affect the value of PCoIP protocol offload provided by PCoIP Hardware Accelerator?
Starting in January, we’re hosting a series of three ‘How To’ webinars to show you how to efficiently manage your PCoIP Zero Client deployment in an Amazon WorkSpaces or VMWare Horizon environment using the PCoIP Management Console Enterprise Edition.

With the fantastic advancements being made in cloud technology, customers need to sort through all of the hype to avoid making quick decisions that unnecessarily lock them into a specific cloud or cloud software stack.
Cloud adoption is being driven by many factors including business efficiencies, reduced technological burden, increased collaboration for an increasingly mobile workforce, adaptability and the ability to scale operations easily and quickly.

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.

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!

10ZiG Technology also had big news this year at VMworld 2016. While Teradici is here celebrating our 3 millionth PCoIP Zero Client, 10ZiG is launching two new advanced dual screen PCoIP Zero Clients. 10ZiG is debuting two new PCoIP Zero Clients with DP (DisplayPort) and DVI (Digital Video Interface) video ports.
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.
