VMware Adds To VDI Protocol Collection
VMware Is Collecting Protocols - Licensed Wyse's RDP Add-Ons To Broaden the Use Case of its VDI Push

VMware is collecting protocols.

Last week it made Teradici’s day and announced that it had licensed the software implementation of the Canadian start-up’s PC-over-IP display protocol technology as a key piece of its so-called PC-replacing vClient initiative.

It’s already picked up the Sun Ray Appliance Link Protocol (ALP) and HP’s Remote Graphics Software (RGS).

Now it’s gone and licensed Wyse’s RDP add-ons to broaden the use case of its VDI push, RDP being the Microsoft protocol and so giving VMware access to, say, XP Professional and Vista in a virtual machine.

Like the Teradici protocol – which remains VMware’s primary VDI protocol – sometime next year two components of Wyse’s remote display software are supposed to be integrated into a future release of a newfangled VMware View product family.

View is supposed to extend VMware’s Virtual Desktop Infrastructure to both server-hosted virtual desktops and client virtual desktops so it can ultimately re-create the desktop on any device – including obviously Wyse’s thin clients.

VMware View promises users a single view of all their applications and data in a personalized virtual desktop, a k a “myview,” from anywhere.

VMware will extend Wyse’s enhancements, its TCX-MMR multimedia and TCX-MDS multi-display (think four) widgetry, to PCs and other people’s thin clients.

Since Wyse utilizes the processing power of the client, not the server, to deliver a multimedia experience, it will have minimal impact on the network and server.

Meanwhile, Teradici is supposed to deliver a true PC experience, complete with high-resolution graphics and rich multimedia, including streaming movies and high-def audio, over existing LANs and high-latency WANs.

VMware said its PC-over-IP software implementation would interoperate with hardware-based implementations of the thing.

The company’s vClient Initiative is supposed to include client virtualization, image management (VMware’s View Composer) and offline desktop.
