Taipei, Taiwan, Dec 22, 2009-Leadtek Research Inc., known globally for extreme visual graphics technology development, is pleased to announce that its WinFast VP200 P PC-over-IP (PCoIP®) zero client has achieved VMware Ready certification for VMware'sView 4.0 desktop virtualization product..

WinFast VP200 P PCoIP zero clients ensure data security and provide simplified IT management, by eliminating the need for updating and managing operating systems on the user's desk.

The WinFast VP200 P zero clients and VMware View 4 solution provides users with a rich desktop PC experience while IT managers benefit from low operational cost, increased end-point security, and future-proof desktop scalability.

The VMware Ready program enables customers to quickly identify VMware partner products and solutions that are optimized for VMware environments. Customers will look for the VMware Ready logo when assessing which VMware partner products are the best fit for the immediate needs of their virtual desktop infrastructure. The PCoIP technology enables the true zero client solution that can support any user type from task worker and mainstream office workers to extreme workstation/visualization application users.

Key benefits of PCoIP zero clients include:

  • Support any user, all 2D/3D graphics, multimedia
  • Support for LAN or long distance WAN network connections
  • Lowest operational cost
  • Maximum end-point security
  • Flexibility – RDP and PCoIP protocol
  • Integrated VMware View 4 Client interface

“The combination of PCoIP hardware zero clients with VMware View 4 provides Leadtek customers with the flexibility they need to deploy end-to-end solutions to meet a broad range of users and applications,” said Dan Cordingley, president and CEO, Teradici Corporation.

"VMware support for the PC-over-IP protocol provides tremendous value for customers looking to extend the capabilities of virtual desktops throughout the enterprise," said KS Lu, CEO at Leadtek.
