VMworld 2009: VMware readies PCoIP

VMs go remote

Another new technology that was demoed in Steve Herod’s VMworld 2009 Wednesday keynote was VMware’s new PC-over-IP (PCoIP) protocol. Like Microsoft’s Remote Desktop Protocol, PCoIP is a remote display technology. VMware acquired the PCoIP technology from Teradici and will use it to connect thin clients to VMware View. With PCoIP the host renders the graphics. The demo showed remote support for 3D graphics and a YouTube streaming video. PCoIP will be shipping later this year. You can find out more about PCoIP at www.teradici.com
