Fujitsu Technology Solutions reportedly will provide Teradici’s PC-over-IP (PCoIP) technology in its CELSIUS workstations. Teradici’s PCoIP technology enables PCs and workstations to be centrally managed in a datacenter. It also provides high resolution, full frame rate 3D graphics and HD media, with full USB peripheral interoperability.
Fujitsu (News - Alert) will incorporate PCoIP remote desktop technology across the entire CELSIUS product line. The company expects that the PCoIP enabled workstations will deliver a number of benefits for Fujitsu customers such as improved security, reduced power requirements, and simplification of management. These customers will now be able to apply remote computing technology in CAD/CAE, engineering, and other applications.
Explaining how the technology works, Teradici’s officials said that the CELSIUS Remote Access PCoIP host card is integrated into the centralized workstation. Once it is integrated the card compresses and encodes the complete desktop environment including high-definition graphics, USB and audio. The encoded desktop is communicated in real-time over a standard IP network to the CELSIUS Remote Access PCoIP desktop portal, a small, stateless desktop appliance.
Wilhelm Geyer, director, Workstations at Fujitsu Technology Solutions (News - Alert) indicated that PCoIP remote computing is set to become added capability for a number of customers across a variety of markets.
He also expressed his company’s commitment to delivering an optimal remote computing solution across the entire range of CELSIUS workstations, including high-end and mid-range workstation models.
Dan Cordingley, Teradici Corporation president and CEO expects this agreement will offer exciting new advantages to customers in the markets such as energy, automotive, and aerospace who are searching for remoting capabilities immediately.
“We are pleased to make this announcement today with one of the global leaders in workstation design and development.”
Teradici specializes in delivering a true PC experience over standard IP networks. Earlier this month, the company partnered with Amulet Hotkey, a solutions provider for financial markets and multi-nationals. Under the agreement, Teradici’s PC-over-IP (PCoIP) technology will be integrated into Amulet Hotkey’s new remote quad-monitor blade workstation solution.
