Teradici announced the general availability of the Teradici APEX 2800 server offload card for VMware View deployments.
Designed to offload PCoIP image encoding from the server, the card seamlessly and dynamically switches image compression tasks as needed without the user noticing the switch. By offloading the most active 64 displays, APEX 2800 creates virtual CPU headroom to ensure consistent application performance. Reducing peaks in CPU utilization by up to 50% and smoothing overall CPU demand provides a reliable and consistent level of experience regardless of the overall demand on server CPUs. The APEX 2800 PCoIP server offload card is compatible with all PCoIP zero clients and VMware View™ software clients. It is fully integrated into the VMware vSphere® and managed by VMware View 4.6 or later. The Teradici APEX 2800 server offload card is the first Teradici product sold direct to end customers and is now available through worldwide distributors and resellers, including Dell S&P and HP 3PO websites as a peripheral at MSPR of $1,995-1,999 in the US.
