Teradici PCoIP Hardware Accelerator Now Compatible with VMware Horizon and VMware ESXi 6.0 with NVIDIA GRID vGPU Technology

PCoIP Hardware Accelerator complements NVIDIA's vGPU technology to provide the best remote user experience to high-end 3D Graphics workloads

Teradici have released the latest drivers (version 2.5) for its PCoIP Hardware Accelerator, which enables organizations to further capitalize on the latest release of VMware Horizon and NVIDIA GRID vGPUs.

The VMware and NVIDIA solution offers VMware Horizon users an immersive, graphics-intensive virtual desktop experience, delivered cost effectively with GPU shared across multiple users. Coupling VMware/NVIDIA vGPU deployments with the Teradici PCoIP Hardware Accelerator, allows IT managers to deliver the ultimate user experience, by efficiently encoding the extra pixels generated by the GPU and delivering higher frames per second to the end point client.

The PCoIP Hardware Accelerator also reduces CPU overhead by dynamically offloading up to 100 of the most active displays to ensure compute resources are optimized. For example, University Duisburg-Essen in Germany successfully delivered virtual desktops that support graphic-intensive 3D applications to students through a solution that leveraged a Teradici PCoIP Hardware Accelerator and NVIDIA GRID GPU in each VMware Horizon VDI server.

"When IT added the Hardware Accelerator and GPU to the server, the user experience was amazing. We now have true anywhere access to all of our department applications, and are no longer limited by data center walls or campus boundaries," said André Kreft, managing director, Faculty of Biology, University Duisburg-Essen.

With the new capabilities, organizations can deliver virtualized workstation-grade desktops to a broader range of users, from knowledge and power users to workstation users in need of graphics-intensive applications, including 3D, prevalent with film editing, design and CAD/CAM application users.

In addition to support for VMware ESXi 6.0 and VMware Horizon View 6.1, the Hardware Accelerator is now also compatible with VMware Horizon Published Desktop (RDSH).
