What’s New for RDSH Published Desktops: A Close Look at Published Desktops Delivered Through PCoIP®

without comments

Back in August at VMworld 2012 in San Francisco, Teradici has announced a new product bringing the power of PCoIP to Microsofts Terminal Server. In fact it is a competitive solution to Citrix XenApp, brokered by VMware View.

Teradici has recorded a webinar about their new RDSH solution which is now available on their website.

Watch this webinar to learn how you can unify your mixed VDI and published desktop environments using PCoIP, simplifying network configuration and standardizing end point devices to meet expectations for lower TCO and improved end user experience.

The new product offers:

  • Unifies mixed deployments under one protocol to simplify network configuration
  • Opens up the PCoIP ecosystem of zero client endpoints
  • Allows users to access their RDSH desktop over the WAN

At VMworld Europe in Barcelona I had the chance to get a Live Demo of Teradici’s new solution and I was really impressed about it. If you didn’t read my article, here’s the link: http://www.thatsmyview.net/2012/10/13/back-from-vmworld-europe-2012-my-thoughts/

The following link will take you to the Teradici website where you can register for the webinar.

On the Teradici website it still says that the RDSH solution is coming in Q4/2012 so stay tuned. If you want to learn more about it please feel free to visit this link.

Teradici Brings PCoIP to Microsoft Remote Desktop Services

without comments

Interesting news which we got today! Teradici brings PCoIP to Microsoft Remote Desktop Services. This is what loads of people where looking for I guess. Let’s wait until VMworld US and hope that many bloggers will visit Teradici’s booth to take videos. :-) Unfortunately I’ll not be there this year.

“Until today VMware View customers and service providers looking to combine full-featured VDI-based virtual desktops with Microsoft RDS to provide basic desktop virtualization services have had no choice but to run multiple separately managed desktop virtualization solutions with multiple remote display protocols; both of which significantly add to the cost and complexity of a comprehensive service,” said Simon Bramfitt, research analyst at Entelechy Associates. “Teradici’s entry into the RDSH market will prove attractive both to existing View customers and service providers alike as awareness of the benefits of desktop virtualization increases and organizations that had previously discounted VDI reconsider that decision. Teradici’s announcement of its RDSH solution should do much to refocus attention on the technology that has frequently been overlooked since the introduction of VDI. The increased choice it offers will do much to help customers looking to implement RDSH, especially those who do not need the comprehensive feature set and corresponding premium price of Citrix XenApp.”

For IT managers with both VMware View and Microsoft RDS session desktop environments, Teradici RDSH provides RDS session desktops with:

  • PCoIP protocol support for Microsoft RDS session desktops with the benefits of industry leading performance, security, and user experience.
  • The ability to broker and manage both VMware View and RDS session desktops through VMware View Manager.
  • The benefits of high performing, secure, and minimal management Teradici Zero Clients for RDS session desktops. Teradici PCoIP Zero Clients are available from over 30 OEM partners in a wide variety of form factors and options.
  • The ability to use the revolutionary Teradici APEX 2800 PCoIP server offload card to provide Microsoft RDS desktop sessions with the same increase in performance and scalability as currently offered in VMware View deployments.

To read the full text please visit the Teradici website.

As of this text from Teradici’s website they’re going to release the product in Q4 this year!

Teradici RDSH will be generally available in December 2012 and will be demonstrated at Teradici’s booth #917 at VMworld 2012 taking place August 26 to August 30 at the Moscone Center, San Francisco. For further information, visit www.teradici.com/RDSH

VMware teaming with Cisco to accelerate desktop deployment

without comments

Cisco and VMware are together simplifying the physical and virtual infrastructure management associated with virtual desktops deplyoments. to learn more, please check the VMware blogs. you’ll find the link at the end of the article.

Both Cisco and VMware have diligently delivered on our joint vision to regain control of the corporate desktop environment. We’ve integrated VMware View with the Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS). We’ve made the Cisco Desktop Virtualization Solution with VMware View a core module of the Cisco Virtualization Experience Infrastructure (VXI) system. Known simply as Cisco VXI with VMware View, the solution addresses today’s IT and end-user challenges: achieving scalable, high-performance desktop virtualization with media-rich communications, unified management, pervasive security and an uncompromised user experience. The integration of voice, video and virtual desktops transforms desktops into virtual collaborative workspaces.

In an effort to simplify implementation, we are working with our ecosystem partners including NetApp and EMC to deliver Cisco Validated Designs that provide detailed technical guidance based on validated and tested configurations. Both NetApp and EMC have worked with Cisco and VMware to deliver separate validated reference architectures for shared infrastructure and virtual desktops.

Customers of VMware, Cisco and NetApp, including Metro Health (a regional healthcare provider based out of Grand Rapids, Michigan) have embraced our joint solution, achieving significant cost and efficiency benefits. Read about optimizing clinical workflows with VMware View and Cisco VXI or hear what Metro Health has to say about utilizing desktop virtualization to optimize clinical workflows and improve care.

Metro Health in example is using VMware View with Cisco VXI and NetApp.
