Are You One of the Million+ Soon to be Disconnected by VMware PCoIP EOL News?

VMware Horizon Users Can Rest Easy with 10ZiG Blast Zero Clients

Worried about End of Service i.e. End of Life for PCoIP in a VMware Environment on particular PCoIP supported endpoint devices?

In March, VMware officially announced EOS/EOL for PCoIP, and this will eventually affect over one million+ endpoint devices, rendering them useless. VMware has been supporting PCoIP as a protocol option in Horizon for years, but as their Blast protocol has evolved, they have announced dropping support for PCoIP in Horizon.
