IGEL, provider of the next-gen edge OS for cloud workspaces, and Teradici, the creator of industry-leading PCoIP technology and Cloud Access Software, announced that the new IGEL UD3 is the first endpoint device to be optimised for cloud connectivity with the Teradici PCoIP Software Client for Linux, including the PCoIP Ultra feature set.
“IGEL’s collaboration with Teradici enables us to continue to provide our mutual customers with an exceptional end user computing experience,” said Casey Cheyne, vice president of cloud partnerships, IGEL. “The enhanced support of PCoIP Ultra, for example, exemplifies a common directive from both companies – to enable secure, optimized performance within virtualized and cloud workspace environments.”
The new IGEL UD3 endpoint device takes advantage of the powerful AMD Ryzen Embedded R1505G SoC with Radeon Vega 3 Graphics, enabling the use of the AVX2 instruction set or H.264/HEVC hardware decoding options. PCoIP Ultra accelerates the decoding processes on the client, improving user experience by providing a smoother display of any moving graphics on the host machine, even in high resolution. The IGEL UD3 can support two 4K displays, providing enhanced productivity for users requiring large amounts of dynamic, visual information with minimal latency and high security.
The PCoIP Ultra enhancements, first introduced by Teradici last year and supported by IGEL OS since June 2019, uses an expanded array of encoders on the host, enabling the choice of the most efficient hardware or software codecs according to content characteristics. This flexibility results in a faster, more interactive experience for users of remote desktops working with high-demand graphic applications, including those working in visual effects, computer aided design (CAD), animation, simulation and modeling, broadcast video, financial trading, or medical imaging.
“Working with IGEL over the past year has convinced us of the company’s dedication to provide innovative, high-performing solutions and the best possible user experience,” said Ziad Lammam, vice president of product management for Teradici. “The IGEL UD3 endpoint, with the integration of PCoIP Ultra and the hardware features to optimise its performance, further demonstrates the company’s strength in providing remote desktop solutions that balance security and performance needs for a variety of applications.”
With PCoIP Ultra and the UD3, end users benefit from greater flexibility of choice with the ability to securely connect with Teradici Cloud Access Software for a rich, high-fidelity user experience to any cloud or private data center, including Amazon WorkSpaces and AWS, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud.
