ClearCube Technology, Inc. Sponsors Trade-In to Recycle and Upgrade Program for All OEM PCoIP Tera 1 Zero Clients and Host Card Adapters


Customers of All OEM PCoIP TERA 1 Products have about one million zero clients with End-of-Life TERA1 chips that are ready for recycling so ClearCube Technology creates an easy Trade-In and Recycle to Upgrade Program.

Austin, TX, June 11, 2015 --(PR.com)-- An estimated installed base of about one million zero clients with End-of-Life OL Tera1 chips are ready for recycling.

To provide recycle trade-in value and make it easier for asset accounting, ClearCube has partnered with New Jersey firm, AnythingIT, to offer a convenient process for owners of Tera 1-based products to recycle their EOL products. In return the customer may upgrade to Tera 2-based products and receive market value credits for their recycled products.

ClearCube created this program which will run from June 1, 2015 through September 30, 2015 after receiving the Teradici announcement that the TERA1100 Portal Processor and the TERA1202 Host Processor will no longer support future releases of VMware Horizon, with the last supported version being 6.0.1.

“We selected AnythingIT to manage this program for ClearCube customers based on their credentials that recognize compliance with approved government processes for recycling services and on their service reputation,” says Jim Zakzeski, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for ClearCube.

This simple 5-step service is explained on the ClearCube website at http://www.clearcube.com/promotion-Tera-1-trade-in-upgrade.html

ClearCube provides the most flexibility to customers looking to upgrade to Tera 2 zero clients, host card adapters, hardware accelerators and remote access PCoIP blade PCs / Engineering Workstations and VMWare-based virtual desktops with advanced GPU enhancements.

“Just like our Trade-In to Recycle and Upgrade program, we’ve made upgrading to Tera2 products an easy value proposition. Tera2 improvements feature a 5x performance boost, stronger AES 256-bit encryption, USB 2.0 support, 2560 x 1600 display resolutions at higher mega-pixels-per-second (150-300 Mpps) performance and more. With the newer releases of VMware Horizon the Tera 1 products lose the capacity to exercise many of the new capabilities that make upgrading a smart move,” explains Zakzeski.

Customers have four options:

Upgrade Options

Support Implications

Capability Impact

Stay with Horizon 5.3 or below

Upgrade to Horizon 6.01

Supported by Teradici only*

No benefit from the new features from VMware

Upgrade to above Horizon 6.01

Not be supported by either VMware or Teradici

No benefit from the new features from VMware

Upgrade to Horizon 6.1 with Tera 2 products

Support by VMWare and Teradici

Benefit from all Horizon and Tera 2 feature capabilities

*Teradici provides general support for Tera1 zero clients on VMware Horizon up to and including version 6.0.1 - But this will reach End-of-Support and End-of-Life on December 2015 for all Tera 1 firmware.

Statement of EOL/EOS from Teradici:
Tera1-based products have enjoyed an eight (8)-year-long service life in Remote Workstation or VMware Horizon deployments. The Tera1 processor and firmware has reached the end of its Product Life Cycle due to insufficient capacity to take on new features. This also prevents Tera1 PCoIP Zero Clients from achieving VMware Ready certification for VMware Horizon 6 or higher.
