Lakeside Software Enhances SysTrack
with PCoIP Protocol Support
Integration of controls for breakthrough display compression technology
enables superior management of VMware View™ virtual desktop deployments
Bloomfield Hills, Michigan ― August 23, 2011 ―
Lakeside Software, a leader in business intelligence solutions for IT professionals, announced
the release and general availability of SysTrack® v6 incorporating support for the PCoIP® protocol.
The PCoIP (“PC-over-IP®”) protocol developed by Teradici® and incorporated into VMware View™ 5
as a part of the co-development between the two companies allows all enterprise desktops, from
task workers to power users, to be centrally located and managed in the data center, while
providing the remote user with an exceptional user experience.
SysTrack monitors all 33 session metrics specific to PCoIP performance and supports new PCoIP
management interfaces in VMware View™ 5 to track display protocol behavior. Technicians can
model the protocol’s impact on the user experience and call out individual elements of a PCoIP
transmission to better understand factors comprising bandwidth demand. SysTrack utilizes
Lakeside’s patented and massively scalable DataMine™ distributed relational database architecture
that aggregates user-level data unmatched in depth and quality.
Uniquely, SysTrack maps this comprehensive PCoIP data to application behavior, system resource
analysis, integrated event and fault tracking, automated backend-server detection and analysis
and other data to provide IT professionals with unprecedented insight into the dynamics of the
end-user environment. With this insight, IT professionals can more effectively manage their
virtualized user community, proactively diagnose and fix problems, and quantify the delivered
end user experience over time and across geos and lines of business.
“Lakeside enhances the value of the PCoIP protocol to client organizations by providing
a powerful tool for measuring the quality of the end-user experience and the effectiveness of
the PCoIP implementation,” said Dan Cordingley, CEO of Teradici. “With deeper
insight gleaned from better data, IT professionals can ensure the best virtualized user
“VMware View™ 5 delivers the best user experience on the LAN or the WAN with
drastically improved PCoIP performance while reducing bandwidth by up to 75%,” said
Vittorio Viarengo, vice president, End-User Computing, VMware. “By partnering with
VMware, Lakeside delivers to VMware View customers greater visibility and insight into
PCoIP performance to better manage their virtual desktop deployment.”
“Organizations utilizing VMware View™ and the PCoIP protocol can now use
SysTrack to more effectively manage their virtualized user communities,” said Brinton
Baker, Vice President of Marketing, Lakeside Software. “PCoIP support in SysTrack
improves the end-user experience and productivity and enables IT organizations to provide
