Teradici PC-Over-IP Management Console Streamlines Remote Desktop Maintenance

Teradici Corporation, the industry leader in delivering a true PC experience over standard IP networks, today announces the availability of the Teradici PCoIP Management Console, a tool that enables administrators to manage an entire enterprise deployment of PC-over-IP (PCoIP) devices from a single screen.

The PCoIP Management Console allows administrators to monitor and configure PCoIP zero clients and host devices either individually or by group and profile to simplify the management and maintenance of large deployments. With the PCoIP Management Console, IT managers can achieve a wide range of tasks, including the following:

  • Graphically view PCoIP device status and connection information
  • Assign static connection between host and zero client devices
  • Access and update the configuration of all PCoIP devices
  • Manage devices individually or by group
  • Update device firmware to enable new functionality
  • View device log files
  • Manage over 2000 PCoIP devices from a single instance

"We are impressed with PCoIP zero clients because they require essentially no management,” said Jason Langone, Data Center Architect for Federal Division at INX, Inc. “Within minutes after installing the PCoIP Management Console, we updated the firmware on hundreds of back-level zero clients to enable and configure VMware View functionality. And thanks to group-based management, maintaining the right configuration for different types of users was straightforward and painless."

The PCoIP Management Console is currently available at no charge from PCoIP solution partners and through the Teradici customer support site. A full overview of the Management Console including video tutorials is available at

Teradici’s PCoIP remote display protocol delivers unprecedented graphics and responsiveness in a remote desktop, combined with exceptional security and virtually zero desktop management. PCoIP processor based solutions are ideal for demanding applications such as engineering design, digital content creation, video editing, financial services, geographic information systems and medical imaging where traditional thin clients cannot deliver the required graphics and performance. In addition, for businesses seeking the flexibility and cost benefits of virtual desktops, VMware View™ 4 now integrates the PCoIP protocol in software to deliver a superior user experience that is fully interoperable with PCoIP hardware hosts and zero clients. This enables every user ranging from task workers to the most demanding engineers or designers to be served within a single environment.

PCoIP zero clients virtually eliminate desktop management because they have no CPU, application OS, device drivers, fan or hard drive. As a result, they require no OS patches, driver updates, anti-virus software or signature files.

Another option for managing hardware PCoIP devices, such as Teradici or other brand Zero Clients, connecting to PCoIP hardware hosts, is to use a connection broker such as PowerTerm WebConnect DeskView.  DeskView will allow you to efficiently manage all your PCoIP users, streamlining deployments and administration.

The difference between DeskView and the Teradici management console is that the Teradici management console assigns the static connection between host and zero client devices.  On the other hand, DeskView is a full connection broker that dynamically manages which devices should connect to which PCoIP hardware hosts based on user ActiveDirectory / LDAP credentials or the client's physical attributes. Moreover DeskView manages pools and dynamic assignments based on pool, manages failover in case the host is not available.  DeskView has a graphical console for all of the above, that shows both which users and which client devices are currently connected and to which hosts and can manages tens of thousands of client and server PCoIP hardware devices.
