Teradici Picks Up $17m C Round

Its widgetry promises inexpensive computer stations at any site, running any operating system

Teradici, the Canadian PC-over-IP desktop virtualization house and close friend of VMware, has gotten a reportedly oversubscribed US$17 million C round from Telus Ventures, Alloy Ventures, GrowthWorks Capital, Skypoint Capital, BDC Venture Capital and Alta Berkeley Venture Partners.

Let's see that makes - my, my - $43.3 million to date.

Its widgetry promises inexpensive computer stations at any site, running any operating system with applications and data residing in the data center.

The new funds are earmarked for marketing current stuff and developing a new offering for consumers and small businesses.

It says customers of the future service would be able to sit at any workspace in the office, remote office, or home and log in to access their system and files from the central datacenter.

They could use their own equipment or get a terminal as part of their contracted service. In return Teradici promises exceptional graphics, multimedia, audio and USB connectivity without buying, managing or maintaining a PC.

Teradici is providing technology for VMware's virtual desktop platform. Its PC-over-IP widgetry compresses centrally rendered display data and USB signals into a digital format that's relayed over a company's internal IP network to a remote desktop client for improved desktop display and better data security.
