VMware VDI

Enhancing the Value of VMware VDI

While VMware has optimization techniques built into the PCoIP protocol, including compression and local client-side caching, a dedicated WAN optimization solution like Silver Peak can further enhance VMware VDI performance. With packet loss reduction, latency mitigation, and application-specific QoS, Silver Peak improves the delivery of VMware VDI traffic over the WAN, ensuring the success of multi-site VDI deployments.

  • Application virtualization (for example, Citrix XenApp) and Virtual Desktop Infrastructures (for example, Citrix XenDesktop, Microsoft Desktop Virtualization, and VMware VDI) deliver enormous management and costs savings throughout an enterprise. However, the benefits of virtualization can easily be lost if application performance hampers end user productivity, as often happens when virtual applications and desktops are delivered across a Wide Area Network (WAN)
  • Silver Peak’s WAN optimization solution helps enterprises reap the rewards of virtualization by overcoming network challenges that impact the performance of these applications across the WAN. More specifically, Silver Peak addresses latency, packet loss, and bandwidth challenges that cause virtual applications (for example, Citrix XenApp) and Virtual Desktop Infrastructures (for example, Citrix XenDesktop, Microsoft Desktop Virtualization, Sun Ray, and VMware VDI) to be unresponsive and/or unreliable across the WAN.
