What you need to know

  • MacStadium and Teradici are working together to enable super-fast remote macOS access for businesses.
  • The move allows remote Mac access at speeds akin to a local machine for the first time.

MacStadium, the company known for offering remote access to data centers full of Macs, has announced a new partnership with PC-over-IP company Teradici. The pair will work together to help make remote access to macOS Big Sur an experience akin to that of working with a local machine. At a time where more and more work is remote, having a Mac that's reliable and speedy can be vital and today's announcement will help make that a reality.

Today's press release also notes that the two firms have been working on the project with Apple.

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

As remote working continues to become the norm, Teradici's cloud access software will run on Macs inside macStadium's data centers.

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.

The two companies say that all of this will be up and running by the middle of 2021 which, my my calculations, is just around the corner.
