VMWare View to Support PCoIP over Internet

It appears that VMWare is finally going to bring in support for PCoIP across internet. See link below.


It will be interesting to see what move will Citrix make to make their product appealing. In my opinion One of Citrix’s biggest selling point was unified experince across LAN, WAN and across the internet with ICA and VMWare view always got beat up because of it’s inability to route PCoIP. I have always thought PCoIP would be routable then it will be a game changer because linked clones are far superior and easier to manage than Citrix Provisioning services and far less complex…

Also both Citrix and VMWare has lacked support for virtual desktop Antivirus solution specially with non-persistent desktop deployments, with the release of VShield for Endpoint VMWare seemed to have take a leap in right direction..

It will be exciting few months. I hope VMWare releases iPad client, Anroid Client which will support PCoIP as well , that will make VMWare View far better solution than Citrix XenDesktop from user experince and cost prospective. The reason I said cost prospective is because Citrix XenDesktop is licensed per user or per device Vs. VMware view is licensed per concurrent user.

Gourami Tools

Gourami has some excellent Citrix Tools, They used to be free but Most of them are paid at this point. One of the better free one is UNICA which allows you to uninstall all versions of ICA installed on a workstation.
