Remoting protocols for gpu-accelerated, vdi environments

March 22, 2019

Because user experience is the key to VDI success, many enterprise organizations are choosing to add GPUs to traditional CPU-only VDI environments to improve the performance of graphics rich applications and operating systems. Everything from general office applications on Windows 10 to specialized design applications for architects, engineers, and other visual artists can benefit greatly from GPU acceleration. When using GPUs in a VDI environment, however, it’s important to select the correct remoting protocol to optimize image quality and bandwidth consumption. Perceived issues with GPU-enabled desktops are often the result of remoting protocols that aren’t optimized for a given use case. This paper provides an overview of nine different VDI policy sets from Citrix and their impact on the user experience. You’ll learn how to choose the right protocols for specific end user needs.

Virtualization Defined - Eight Different Ways

whitePaper | October 4, 2021

Virtualization as a concept is not new; computational environment virtualization has been around since the first mainframe systems. But recently, the term “virtualization” has become ubiquitous, representing any type of process obfuscation where a process is somehow removed from its physical operating environment. Because of this ambiguity, virtualization can almost be applied to any and all parts of an IT infrastructure. For example, mobile device emulators are a form of virtualization because the hardware platform normally required to run the mobile operating system has been emulated, removing the OS binding from the hardware it was written for. But this is just one example of one type of virtualization; there are many defi nitions of the term “virtualization” fl oating around in the current lexicon, and all (or at least most) of them are correct, which can be quite confusing.

VMware TCO Comparison Calculator

whitePaper | March 11, 2020

Definitions and Objectives In evaluating the cost of a virtualization and private cloud solution, it is essential to use a metric that not only accounts for the cost to acquire the software and the physical infrastructure it requires, but also includes the time and effort needed to operate the solution. Because centralized management is a fundamental component of any virtualization and private cloud deployment, hardware and software costs associated with related management products.
