NCS Draws Strong Interest for VDI at VMworld

Posted by Katie Callahan on Aug 30, 2017 3:31:28 PM

VMworld Day 4 at Mandalay Bay, Las Vegas

Interest in desktop virtualization is a strong focus for many attendees at VMworld 2017 in Las Vegas. Many IT managers come to our booth to continue earlier discussions from weeks or even months ago. But there are also many IT administrators, who know little about us, who stop by to discuss "next steps". They have already virtualized the data center, perhaps even through private or public clouds services, and now they are ready to tackle the desktop.

The questions are many. What products does NCS offer? In what use cases are they typically implemented? How easy are they to manage? What are their price points? How secure are NCS zero clients?  Over the past few days we have also fielded many questions about the desktops virtualization protocols available. Since this is a VMware show, the two most popular VMware ecosystem protocols being discussed are PCoIP and Blast Extreme, but other protocols do come up.

It is the NCS view that the PCoIP protocol from Teradici continues to be the best choice over alternatives, primarly because of its proven manageability, iron-clad security and the overall performance - even in challenging high definition environments. 

PCoIP transfers the image of software running in the data center to any PCoIP end point (zero client). Because the protocol transfers only the pixel data location information, it's super secure - no secrets or personal data or business information ever leaves the data center. The PCoIP security module leverages the AES 256 and NSA Suite B cyphers, which meet the highest level of security required by governments.

In applications requiring higher bandwidth, PCoIP shines over Blast Extreme and the rest of the competition, including including Remote Desktop Protocol and HDX. If bandwidth becomes variable, competing protocols can deliver choppy screen results. But a PCoIP client, assisted by hardware acceleration, will maintain smooth video motion by slightly varying the resolution to optimize the viewing experience.

It is fair to say that Blast is creating strong interest from the VMware user base but from all comparable data administrators will still be better off by going with the PCoIP protocol.

VMworld Day Three at Mandalay Bay, Las Vegas

There are scores of vendors displaying solutions at VMworld 2017 and certainly major areas of interest include the cloud, storage and overall data center virtualization strategies. When it comes to VDI and the desktop, it is accurate to say that NCS Technologies is one of the key centers of expertise at the show. Since Sunday evening we have had more than 100 conversations with IT administrators from government, healthcare and the enterprise who are very knowledgeable about the relevent issues involving virtualizing the desktop. What is impressive is that they are coming to our booth to better understand how VMware, the PCoIP protocol and the comprehensive desktop product line from NCS can make a successful desktop virtualization strategy possible.

If you are at the giant virtualization event, please stop by NCS Booth #823 through tomorrow to learn how desktop virtualization can improve security and ease your IT administrative complexity.
