Pivot3 and Teradici Join Forces to Deliver High Performance VDI solutions

Pivot3, a leading provider of converged storage and compute appliances, today announced a partnership with Teradici, the developer of the PC-over-IP(PCoIP) protocol, to further drive exceptional end-user experiences within VDI environments. With joint customers across a wide array of industries in both the U.S. and EMEA, Pivot3 and Teradici have helped provide organizations with cost-effective solutions that boost end-user experience across the board. Through the partnership, both companies will work together on co-marketing initiatives and potential bundle programs addressing key vertical markets where VDI is a perfect IT solution.

“With our parallel focus on providing VDI solutions that simplify and enhance the end-user experience, a partnership between Pivot3 and Teradici seemed like a natural progression,” said Olivier Thierry, chief marketing officer at Pivot3. “Pivot3 is committed to simplifying VDI environments by drastically cutting the costs associated with adoption while constantly improving the end-user experience, a similarity we see between both companies. We look forward to continuing our work with Teradici to provide current, and perspective, customers with high-performance VDI appliances suited to meet today’s business demands.”

Both Teradici and Pivot3 will be showcasing solutions at VMware Partner Exchange, taking place February 25 – 27 at the Mandalay Bay Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Pivot3 (Booth 1401): Pivot3 will showcase its vSTAC VDI appliances which provide an affordable enterprise-class VMware View virtual desktop infrastructure with high performance, high availability and no single point of failure. Through its patented Serverless Computing software innovation, Pivot3 delivers radically simplified and integrated shared storage and virtual servers in a simple, scalable appliance.

Teradici (Booth 1501): Teradici will provide live demos of Teradici Arch Published Desktop, APEX 2800 server offload card, and Tera2 zero clients, showcasing how PCoIP solutions can help VMware Partners to expand their virtual desktop opportunities tenfold. The Teradici PCoIP protocol compresses, encrypts and encodes the entire computing experience at the data center and transmits it ‘pixels only’ across any standard IP network to stateless PCoIP zero clients.

"As a global transportation company, we had an immediate need to address our mobile workforce," said Josh England, chief financial officer at CR England. "Pivot3's VDI solution was a strong fit that offered feasibility and manageability. Along with the Teradici APEX card, we were able to provide our employees with the flexibility they desired, while also providing a great user experience that exceeded our expectations."

“The Hurlingham Club sought an IT solution to upgrade our desktop capabilities while still providing an exceptional computing experience for our staff,” said David Appleton, IT manager at The Hurlingham Club. “We selected a Pivot3 and Teradici solution as it best fit our budget constraints, while also demonstrating superior performance during our Proof-of-Concept trial. We are currently starting implementation and we will be going live to staff at the end of April 2013.”

“We are thrilled to announce this partnership with Pivot3, seeing that we have synergistic solutions geared toward providing customers with the best user experience in virtualized environments,” said Trent Punnett, vice president of product management, systems engineering, and corporate development at Teradici. “Pivot3 customers now have the option to utilize the Teradici APEX 2800, as well as zero clients, to reap the benefits of PCoIP, therefore significantly improving experience and scalability.”
