VANCOUVER, British Columbia --(Business Wire)--
today introduced new software for Dell (News - Alert) Precision workstations that gives
mobile workers instant access to a rich remote computing experience -
whether from a conference room, home office, or on-the-go. With Teradici
Workstation Access Software, companies can offer employees the freedom
to work from any location with an ultra-secure, easy-to-deploy solution.
Ideally suited to small- and mid-sized businesses (SMBs) in
architecture, construction, engineering and manufacturing, the new
software client can be installed in less than five minutes for a
seamless connection from any compatible end point.
Today's news from SIGGRAPH
Vancouver 2014 extends the companies' successful partnership over
the past 5+ years in which Teradici PCoIP technology has become a key
ingredient of desktops and workstations in Dell's broad portfolio of
enterprise products. Teradici PCoIP Workstation Access Software is
compatible with existing Dell Precision workstations, and
newly-introduced tower and rack models announced
today. The new software will be available for download at the Dell
Online Store and through Dell's channel partners.
"The era of work anyplace, anytime, on any machine with access to your
full database, applications and project files is upon us," said Dr. Jon
Peddie, president of Jon Peddie Research. "Teradici has been a leading
innovator in the market for remote graphics. Teradici and Dell have made
remote workstation technology accessible, giving IT management a simple,
low cost way to add remote visualization."
"With Teradici PCoIP Workstation Access Software for Dell Precision,
customers can enable their employees to instantly and securely access
their workstations from anywhere with a rich remote user experience
across the network," said Andy Rhodes, executive director for Dell
Precision workstation solutions.�"The ability to access applications
from Windows devices will offer a new level of flexibility and
productivity for mobile workers, with iOS and Android (News - Alert) support on track
for release in the coming months. This new software builds on our
existing remote access solutions, so we're excited to bring the benefits
of this easy-to-deploy solution to Dell Precision workstation customers."
The new software includes PCoIP remote visualization technology, which
ensures all user data and computing applications are transmitted as
pixel-only images - not data - making it possible for IT management to
protect corporate intellectual property and sensitive internal data,
while enabling end users to access their workstations remotely over LAN
or WAN connections. The initial PCoIP Workstation Access Software
release is ideal for Dell tower workstations in deskside deployments,
allowing for remote access to the user's physical workstation from any
location, while ensuring local native performance at their desk. Future
product releases will support Dell rack mount virtualized or physical
workstations in the data center.
"This introduction marks a significant milestone for our partnership
with Dell," said Dan Cordingley, president and CEO of Teradici.
"Together, we've collaborated to bring feature-rch, high-fidelity
