Teradici®, developer of industry-leading PCoIP® technology for virtual workspaces, today announced a partnership with CounterPath Corp. (NASDAQ: CPAH) (TSX: CCV), a leading developer of award-winning desktop, tablet and mobile VoIP client solutions. Together, the companies will deliver the industry’s first scalable unified communications (UC) solution for PCoIP Zero Clients for desktop-as-a-service (DaaS) and virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) deployments.
Integration of CounterPath’s market-leading Bria softphone technology into Tera2 PCoIP Zero Clients will culminate in an interoperable UC solution for enterprise customers across the broadest range of SIP-compliant environments, including Alcatel-Lucent, Avaya, Broadsoft, Cisco, Metaswitch Networks and Mitel, for voice, messaging, presence, contacts and social media. With virtual desktops delivered via PCoIP, all applications and data remain in the data center where they can be centrally managed, with a remote link to the local client device. Users can readily move between devices while preserving their desktop environment, greatly enhancing employee mobility, data security and disaster recovery.
“We’re delighted to be the first independent software vendor to jointly develop and deliver a scalable VoIP unified communications solution for PCoIP Zero Clients,” said Donovan Jones, President and CEO, CounterPath. “Our partnership with Teradici expands the reach of CounterPath and highlights the flexibility of our unified communications solution. With more than one and a half million PCoIP Zero Clients deployed in companies across diverse markets, we have a tremendous opportunity – with great potential for acceleration, as VDI and the emerging DaaS markets reach new levels of maturity.”
“In collaboration with CounterPath, we’re excited to bring greater flexibility and an enhanced user experience to PCoIP Zero Clients – the most secure, easy-to-manage endpoint devices for virtual workspaces,” added Dan Cordingley, President and CEO, Teradici. “Bria softphone solutions have been broadly adopted by more than 400 operators, OEMs and large and small enterprises in more than 50 countries worldwide. CounterPath has a proven track record in delivering a high-quality product with interoperability across a breadth of SIP-compliant network equipment. We’ve selected the right partner at the right time to jointly develop a scalable, robust, cost-effective UC solution.”
Development of a joint UC solution for PCoIP Zero Clients by Teradici and CounterPath is underway with an expected release in calendar Q4.
Built for the cloud, ultra-secure PCoIP Zero Clients simplify IT management and displace traditional PCs at a fraction of the cost, eliminating hard drives, CPUs, graphic processors, applications and OS software. Today, Teradici’s ecosystem includes 50 of world’s leading computer manufacturers, delivering PCoIP Zero Clients in a variety of form factors (desktop, laptop, all-in-one monitors) that meet the industry’s strictest enterprise standards for workplace security, performance and ease-of-management.
CounterPath is a global leader in softphone technology, with millions of endpoints downloaded. With unmatched interoperability with IP PBXs and SIP-based application servers, Bria is built toward industry standards with proven multimedia technology that provides a highly-secure, high-quality, UC experience to voice and video calls over fixed, mobile and Wi-Fi broadband networks. Bria’s ability to move a UC session, without interruption, between mobile and Wi-Fi networks gives businesses new options for "always on" connectivity while realizing cost savings through enhanced access to free Wi-Fi networks.

Containers are all the rage among developers and web companies, but they also represent two very substantial benefits to larger organizations. First, they have the potential to dramatically accelerate the application lifecycle from software builds and testing to deployment and upgrades. Second they represent the first truly hybrid-approach to consuming infrastructure, allowing organizations to run the same workloads on any cloud, virtual machine or physical server. Together, they represent a ver...

IT data is typically silo'd by the various tools in place. Unifying all the log, metric and event data in one analytics platform stops finger pointing and provides the end-to-end correlation. Logs, metrics and custom event data can be joined to tell the holistic story of your software and operations. For example, users can correlate code deploys to system performance to application error codes.

Secure Cloud through Automated Compliance | @CloudExpo @CloudRaxak #Cloud #BigData #DevOps #Microservices
Cloud computing delivers on-demand resources that provide businesses with flexibility and cost-savings. The challenge in moving workloads to the cloud has been the cost and complexity of ensuring the initial and ongoing security and regulatory (PCI, HIPAA, FFIEC) compliance across private and public clouds. Manual security compliance is slow, prone to human error, and represents over 50% of the cost of managing cloud applications. Determining how to automate cloud security compliance is critical...

As-a-service models offer huge opportunities, but also complicate security. It may seem that the easiest way to migrate to a new architectural model is to let others, experts in their field, do the work. This has given rise to many as-a-service models throughout the industry and across the entire technology stack, from software to infrastructure. While this has unlocked huge opportunities to accelerate the deployment of new capabilities or increase economic efficiencies within an organization, i...
