About Tehama

System Requirements

See the Prerequisites section in the Getting Started Overview for information on what you need to set up and run a Tehama Room, manage it, and connect to its Desktops from the Tehama Web UI.

Find a synopsis below.


 • Browser

The Tehama Web UI is accessed through a browser interface. See the Supported browsers in the Tehama Web UI page for a list of browsers you can use to run it.


 • Tehama Gateway host

This is the host machine inside your private network on which you install a 'Tehama Gateway' for your Room.

The choice of host depends on the installation method you choose. See the Tehama Gateway User Guide to select the best installation method for your network.

The host for a Tehama Gateway instance can be a standalone host or a Virtual Machine.

If installing via the automated-script, choose a host that meets the minimum specifications and can be configured as directed in 'Configure your Gateway host (for automated-script-installations' in the Tehama Gateway User Guide.

Note: The Tehama Gateway does not require a dedicated host. You can run the Gateway on an existing host in your infrastructure as long as it can be configured as required, instead of setting up a host specifically for the purpose (which may require an additional OS license)._


 • Desktop host device

This is a host device capable of running the Tehama Client and accessing the Tehama Web UI (through one of the supported browsers.).

Use this device to launch and connect to Tehama Desktops.

One of these hosts is required for each user for whom you provision a Tehama Desktop.

See the list of supported Tehama Client hosts (Platform Compatibility) in the Tehama Client Overview.


 • Domain Join requirements

Tehama offers a Domain Join feature for Tehama Gateway Rooms. This feature allows an organization to create a Gateway Room that has their network's domain joined to the Room, giving read-only access to the domain's objects, such as users and policies, to the Room.

If you are interested in creating a Domain Join Room, read through the Domain Join Room Requirements and Limitations section in the Room Domain Join User Guide to be sure that this type of Room is right for your organization and that your network meets the requirements necessary for this type of Room.


Cloud Platforms

Tehama Rooms are constructed on demand using Amazon Cloud infrastructure within the Amazon regions listed in the Room Regions section of the Rooms User Guide.


Dependencies on Third Party software

Teradici PCoIP Client Third Party Software

Users typically connect to their Tehama Desktops, of all types, using the Tehama Client, with a single click. In certain circumstances, users may opt to use the 'Teradici PCoIP Client' with manually entered credentials.

Amazon WorkSpaces® Client Third Party Software

Users typically connect to their Tehama Desktop of type 'Workspaces' using the Tehama Client, with a single click. In certain circumstances, users may opt to use the 'Amazon Workspaces® Client' with manually entered credentials.

We support both AWS native and browser versions of the AWS client, but with known issues.

  • All the AWS browser clients have been reported to have copy/paste issues.
  • The Google Chromebook native app (Android based) has a series of separate issues.
  • Windows 10 Amazon WorkSpaces have been reported to have copy/paste issues regardless of the AWS client used to connect. Ensure your laptop/device is fully up to date, as recent updates seem to correct this problem.

For further information on AWS clients, we suggest you browse the AWS Developer Forums, including the Amazon WorkSpaces Forum.

Other Third Party Software

A few basic applications are installed by default in the Desktops to enable web browsing and network connectivity.

Users can customize the applications available on their Rooms' Desktops by requesting Custom Desktop Specifications. See the Custom Specifications User Guide for more information.
