Virtual Desktop User Experience
Experience Optimized Protocol Enables Broad Adoption of Desktop Virtualization

Quest Software unveiled its Experience Optimization Pack (EOP) from the Provision Networks division. Quest EOP is an extension suite for Microsoft’s Remote Desktop Protocol aimed to eliminate the adoption barriers of hosted desktop virtualization in all use case scenarios over both local area and wide area networks.

VDI promises to change the way organizations deliver applications and deploy desktops. It promises to change the way users will compute, ensuring higher levels of productivity, desktop and application availability, and higher levels of security, while lowering the cost and complexity of managing the desktop infrastructure. Technical challenges have however so far impeded the broad adoption of desktop virtualization.

Introducing Quest Experience Optimization Pack
Hosted desktop technologies such VDI, Blade PCs or even presentation virtualization, rely on Microsoft’s remote desktop protocol (RDP) to provide access and connectivity. RDP however does not deliver a PC-like or even a near PC-like experience. Quest’s EOP embraces and extends RDP and delivers the best user experience for LAN and WAN connectivity:

  • Quest EOP delivers support for bi-directional audio, enabling organizations to deploy dictation, collaboration and certain VOIP applications.
  • Quest EOP accelerates the delivery of multimedia content such as recorded webcasts and web-based training from remote virtualized desktops and applications.
  • Quest EOP dramatically improves the remoting of graphics including browser and flash acceleration.
  • Quest EOP eliminates the effects of network latency which can cause havoc for simple applications such as word processing.

“VDI certainly holds tremendous promise in the way desktop management and deployment is accomplished. However, the user experience will dictate the feasibility of a desktop virtualization project, said Andi Mann, research director, Enterprise Management Associates. Quest is on target by choosing to improve this user experience which enables organizations to virtualize more desktop scenarios spanning the enterprise.”
