This is a guest post from Olivier Favre, director of product management, at Dell partner Teradici. Favre is the director of product management at Teradici, looking after the workstation portfolio and the newly launched PCoIP Workstation Access Software. He is responsible for managing portfolio lifecycle and defining new products that meet the needs of the workstation verticals for remote access. Before moving to the workstation and virtual workspace industry, Olivier held several product management positions in the Telecom sector and has experience working in both North America and Europe. He holds an MBA from Kellogg School of Management, and Masters Degree of Engineering from France
Traditionally, remote workstation technology has been ideal for the large enterprise-class of users. This type of user has the resources necessary to invest in the infrastructure required to run specialized and graphics-intensive workloads from the data center. The need for purpose-built applications and the trend towards increased mobility further adds to IT management challenges, making remote access technology for workstations difficult for businesses with limited IT resources or expertise. Organizations across a variety of industries, including design, architecture and engineering, require the high-end visualization technology available in workstations, they are increasingly looking to capitalize on the potential of a seamless remote experience for their workforces, from anywhere, anytime.
As the desire for greater flexibility and productivity increases, so does the number of remote and mobile workers, particularly with the onset of BYOD. To date, delivering a remote visualization experience to SMBs across these verticals has been difficult. Smaller businesses do not operate with the same IT budgets nor do they have the same resources or skillsets at their disposal as large enterprises. Plus, they are not able to experiment with remote workstation technology due to the investment traditionally required to deploy such solutions.
But what if smaller organizations in graphics-intensive industries were able to benefit from anywhere, anytime access to high-end workstations without interruption? Imagine the convenience and the new levels of productivity that could take place. What if new ideas would be possible to organizations which can tap into talent pools outside of their local purview, or freeing workstation users from being tied to their desks?
To help address this new world of possibilities for SMBs, we’ve announced with Dell our remote access solution for workstation users, Teradici PCoIP Workstation Access Software for Dell Precision Workstations. The announcement made last week at SIGGRAPH 2014 Vancouver extends the successful partnership between Teradici and Dell over the past 5 years.
This partnership throughout the years has seen Teradici PCoIP technology become a key ingredient in cloud client solutions and workstations in Dell’s broad portfolio of enterprise products. Teradici PCoIP Workstation Access Software is compatible with existing Dell Precision workstations, and the newly introduced tower and rack models that will come available in early September.
The capabilities of Teradici PCoIP Workstation Access Software for Dell Precision Workstations include:
- Democratizes access to rich computing from any location at anytime, while maintaining a high level of security.
- Brings new levels of convenience and ease of IT management to smaller businesses. Users in industries such as architecture, construction, engineering and manufacturing, who may have previously been on the fence about making a remote workstation deployment, can now on-ramp in less than five minutes without putting any additional strain on IT resources or requiring a steep learning curve.
- Brings purpose-built, remote visualization technology to a whole new class of users, allowing companies of all sizes to benefit from the potential of remote workstation access anytime, anywhere, without having to modify their current IT infrastructure.
