PCoIP-Enabled Thin Client from Devon IT Now VMware View 4 Certified
Devon IT, Inc., a leading thin client hardware and software provider, today announced its Teradici PC-over-IP® (PCoIP®) protocol-enabled TC10 thin client is now VMware Ready™ Certified for VMware View™ 4. This designation indicates the TC10 has completed the VMware Hardware Certification Program testing criteria for use with VMware View 4 and is now listed on the VMware Hardware Compatibility Guide.
“This powerful solution requires high-powered thin clients like the TC10 to work effectively. We are pleased that the TC10 fits these requirements after passing specific VMware integration and interoperability criteria.”
The TC10 is among the first thin clients to run Teradici’s patented PCoIP® protocol on hardware-to-hardware and hardware-to-software displays after becoming the first thin client ever to run PCoIP in 2007. PCoIP enables customers operating remotely to deploy rich functionality and full multimedia user experiences. VMware View 4, the industry’s only purpose-built desktop virtualization solution, has enabled new quality, cost and scale standards and helped users eliminate critical functionality barriers that previously restricted customer adoption.
“We are excited about the expanded capabilities for VMware View™ 4 with Teradici’s PCoIP® display protocol,” said Raj Mallempati, director, product marketing, Desktop Business Unit, VMware. “This powerful solution requires high-powered thin clients like the TC10 to work effectively. We are pleased that the TC10 fits these requirements after passing specific VMware integration and interoperability criteria.”
"The collaboration between Teradici and Devon IT continues to deliver innovative PCoIP solutions to enterprises looking to maximize their VDI investment," said Dan Cordingley, president and CEO, Teradici Corporation. "With comprehensive security, optimal desktop reliability, and low total cost of ownership, the TC10 zero client provides VMware View 4.0 customers with a reliable and future-proof solution."
“VMware View™ 4 has no doubt raised the bar for delivering high-quality, PC-like desktop experiences to users of all intensity levels, from task workers to CAD engineers and financial traders,” says Stephane Verdy, CTO for Devon IT. “We have worked with innovators like VMware and Teradici for years, and we are ecstatic that we can once again provide customers with the most powerful PCoIP-based thin client in the world.”
