The baby finally got a name: Teradici Arch! Teradici’s PCoIP solution for RDSH gets into the first preview stage as of an article in the CIO magazine.
IDG News Service (London Bureau) — Teradici has been forced to delay the release of Arch, which combines VMware and Microsoft server-based desktops using its PCoIP protocol, due to a scalability issue. But a new tech preview will still allow enterprises to familiarize themselves with the product.
Today, PC-over-IP (PCoIP) is used to improve the performance of multimedia and other graphics-heavy applications on VMware’s Virtual Desktop Infrastructure.
Teradici’s Arch was previously known as Remote Desktop Services Host. The platform allows enterprises to combine VMware View and Microsoft RDS desktops and have the same performance levels across both types of desktops. The first version was supposed to have shipped in December, but the company was forced to delay the launch because of a scalability issue related to VMware View, which results in only 45 sessions per virtual server.
