Update From VMware User Con in Philadelphia
The Philadelphia area VMware User Group expo wrapped up Thursday and activity at the NCS exhibit space was heavy all day. VMware professionals from around the metropolitan attended educational sessions and got an inside look at VMware partner products and services - including industry-leading solutions from NCS and its partner Teradici.
At the NCS table, our staff interacted with dozens of IT administrators and users about the comparative benefits of thin clients and zero clients and the benefits of various remote display protocols. What became obvious in the many discussions is that NCS, with its years of experience, product excellence and its wide customer base in government and industry, is the leader in delivering virtualized end point solutions.
NCS solutions use PCoIP from Teradici as its preferred remote display protocol. PCoIP transfers the image of software running on a central server or workstation to any PCoIP-ready end-point. PCoIP compresses, encrypts and rapidly transports image pixels to end-user devices. The desktops and notebooks in turn decrypt, decompress and display the image on a screen. From a user’s perspective, there is no difference between working with a local computer loaded with software and a zero client receiving the image of the software running via PCoIP. Users always experience a high performance, fully-functional computing experience - even with HD.
VMware is the NCS virtualization platform of choice. This platform improves the availability, performance and utilization of IT resources. Years of customer experience and testimonials from customers at expos like this indicate that IT administrators using the VMware-Teradici-NCS software/hardware ecosystem of end point solutions experience improved manageability, reduced cost of ownership and improved security over alternative technology solutions.
For efficiency and value in managing its virtualized endpoints, NCS recommends its customers use the Teradici All Access Plan.
