Teradici, the creator of industry-leading PCoIP technology and Emmy Award-winning Cloud Access Software (CAS), and MacStadium, the leading provider of enterprise-class Mac cloud solutions, today announced an agreement that will enable Mac users to remotely access Apple hardware as if they were on a local machine. Working with Apple, this initiative leverages MacStadium’s cloud-hosted Apple Mac infrastructure to streamline and accelerate the delivery of Teradici CAS with PCoIP support to Mac customers across the globe.
The Teradici and MacStadium agreement will support a wide range of Mac infrastructure use cases, including automating CI/CD pipelines, improving testing, bringing Mac desktops to wherever they are needed, and using Macs as servers.
“The transformation of the remote workforce will continue to accelerate because out-of-office user experiences can now match what people are accustomed to on-premises,” said Ziad Lammam, VP, Product Management at Teradici. “We’re excited to bring Teradici remote technology to the Mac, and to enable Mac users to benefit from powerful remote access. The combination with MacStadium’s enterprise-class cloud capabilities will surely delight users of the platform.”
“Companies that want to leverage Mac hardware in the cloud choose MacStadium for our expertise and long history of building innovative Mac solutions,” said Chris Chapman, MacStadium’s Chief Product Officer. “We are excited for this partnership, and we know that combining Teradici CAS technology for macOS with our cloud-hosted Mac infrastructure will provide users with the remote working experience that they have been waiting for.”
This collaboration will allow enterprises and businesses that operate Mac hardware and macOS as their computing and IT platform of choice to easily deploy secure, high-performance remote access technology. For nearly a decade, MacStadium has been building solutions to empower Apple technology for business users, offering the widest variety of cloud solutions for iOS and macOS which will soon include Teradici CAS and PCoIP technology.
“As a global IT products and solutions provider, SHI is looking forward to the much-anticipated Mac solutions these two companies working together can offer our clients,” said Cary Dahl, Field Chief Technology Officer at SHI. “Teradici is the market leader in enabling remote work from anywhere with their PCoIP display protocol, and MacStadium is the de facto standard for cloud solutions built on Apple hardware. Truly it’s a great match for them, for us, and for our customers.”
Teradici CAS will support Macs running either macOS Catalina or macOS Big Sur and provide the highest levels of security, responsiveness, and fidelity to facilitate graphic-intensive workflows. Additionally, all existing PCoIP endpoints, including macOS clients, Windows clients, Linux clients, PCoIP Zero Clients, and PCoIP thin clients will be able to connect to a macOS host.
Teradici and MacStadium anticipate Teradici CAS support on MacStadium will be available in mid-2021and will extend to knowledge worker and power user use cases.
