Security Server with PCoIP over UDP available with View 4.6

February 25, 2011

In my October blog post A Simple Experiment , I discussed the great WAN experience that we demonstrated at VMworld Europe using View and PCoIP. What I didn’t talk a lot about was that we weren’t using an off the shelf VPN for the connection back to the US, we were actually using an early version of the View Security Server that was enhanced with native PCoIP support over UDP. VPNs that tunnel UDP over TCP/IP will be far less effective at delivering the rich user experience that PCoIP is capable of when compared to approaches that preserve the protocol control of native UDP. Mark Benson described our Security Server architecture in his posting Secure Remote Access with View and PCoIP ....

Secure Remote Access with View and PCoIP

Mark Benson – View Architect – VMware End User Computing CTO Office View Security Server is a component of View that is typically deployed in a DMZ to support remote access to virtual desktops. When accessing desktops from the Internet, such as by the home or mobile worker, Security Server provides the required level of security and connectivity. It ensures that the only remote desktop traffic that can enter the corporate data center is traffic on behalf of a strongly authenticated user. It also ensures that the user can only access desktop resources they are authorized to access. In View 4.5 and earlier, Security Server supports the secure tunnelling of TCP based protocols (such as RDP, USB redirection etc.). PCoIP is an advanced remote...

Why PCoIP is Ideal for Remote Virtual Desktops

It’s not a secret that remote desktop protocols have been lacking to date when compared with local execution on client PCs. However the centralized management and security is compelling and has often made up for this shortcoming. VMware has been hard at work addressing this deficiency – we aim to bring all the operational benefits of virtualized desktops to our customers without having to compromise on the richness of the user experience. PCoIP is a remote graphics protocol originally designed by our partner, Teradici, and available today in hardware implementations. VMware has been diligently working with Teradici to create a virtualized implementation of this robust, innovative protocol and deliver the premier remote desktop experience for VMware View. I thought it would be useful to...
