Secure and flexible IT for education
Education programs are changing and growing rapidly to meet the demands of future jobs and employment criteria. Schools are becoming more diverse, demanding a modern and agile IT to provide the services that students and staff require, including the ability for students to bring their own device, learn from home or on demand.
K-12, higher education and specialized training institutions depend on PCoIP® remote desktops and workstations for ultra-secure access to learning and testing applications, regardless of where students are located or what devices they are using. From flight simulation programs, training labs, 3D animation or AutoCAD classes, Teradici solutions enable effective learning in the classroom or online.
Centralized computing makes the routine management of student labs and courseware significantly easier and allows you to scale up or down easily.
Manage student or teacher devices from the data center through a single management interface, eliminating the time and resources spent on OS, software updates and patches. Scale the deployment up for as many staff or students as needed, then scale down or deactivate users when the course or school year ends.
Secure tests and every staff and student device
Like any other organization, schools and learning institutions also have a high demand for security. They need to protect their valuable IP, prevent exam theft, control learning materials and keep financial or medical records confidential.
Central computing means that no information leaves the data center or public cloud – adding a significant layer of protection against malfeasance. PCoIP technology encrypts and transmits only “pixels” across a standard IP network to PCoIP-enabled clients that decode and display those pixels. No data is stored locally – keep courseware, student data and testing materials secure while maintaining the application performance and user experience.
Save hardware costs, space and power
In the classroom, PCoIP Zero Clients have a small footprint -- around the size of a pocket book – which means workspaces can be more compact. Zero clients help you save on floor space costs, but they also produce almost no heat or noise compared to traditional towers or laptops. Keep the classroom quiet and help students focus on learning while reducing energy costs by 40% - 80%.
Have existing hardware? PCoIP technology supports any device and both Windows and Linux applications. There’s no need to purchase Windows laptops or PCs just to run Windows applications. Use your existing MacBooks or Chromebooks and access virtualized applications with the same user interface.
In the data center, PCoIP solutions like Cloud Access Software or Remote Workstation Cards enable higher hardware density, saving on data center space, cooling, power, maintenance and security.
PCoIP technology also protects your organization from emergencies like power outages or other interruptions in service. Easily redirect connections to teaching materials and desktops hosted on disaster recovery infrastructure and continue operations with minimal downtime.
Extend the learning experience
Learning does not stop outside the classroom. Provide students with the freedom to access a desktop and courseware in the lab at school, or through their own soft client installed on a personal laptop, PC or tablet at any time. Even STEM subjects that require extra compute for large data sets or graphics-intensive applications can be virtualized and accessed from anywhere and on any device instead of utilizing expensive and hard to scale workstations.
Our enterprise subscriptions deliver a complete set of secure remoting solutions for knowledge workers and power users across a wide range of vertical markets. There are four All Access plans choose from to fit your particular needs. Each plan includes Management Console Enterprise Edition and 24 x 7 support from Teradici.
With a Desktop Access subscription you can rest easy knowing that your deployment is up-to-date, managed efficiently and supported by the inventors of PCoIP technology. Be certain that your infrastructure will evolve and scale with you, whether in your data center or the cloud.
The CA subscription gives you access to the PCoIP Standard Agent and is designed for applications that run solely on the CPU to process the workload. The CA+ subscription unlocks the PCoIP Graphics Agent and supports applications that require GPUs to support graphic-intensive workloads.
