VMware develops rival protocol to ICA to compete in the VDI market space

Jason Tramer Jason Tramer Profile: Jason Tramer

One of the exciting (and long overdue) announcements from VMware is there development of a new PCoIP protocol for use in the VMware View product. This protocol will be replacing their use of RDP. One of Citrix’s big claims to fame in this market space with it’s Xendesktop product is it’s use of the ICA protocol which is far and away the superior protocol over RDP.

Good on Vmware for taking the fight to Citrix. I think this fight will go a few arounds so sit back, relax, and enjoy the match.
