VMware View 5.1 Performance Imporvements

VMware recently released View 5.1.  Some of the improvements in this release are performance-centric. 

  • PCoIP efficiency – up to 1.3x reduction in PCoIP overhead
  • Client Optimizations – there has been significant optimization of the VMware View clients, making their protocol handling significantly more streamlined. This is especially apparent on thin-clients, where video playback performance is improved by as much as 3X over previous versions, as illustrated in the figure below. Indeed, even relatively low-performance processors can deliver excellent 720p video playback performance. These improvements are available for both x86 and ARM clients.
  • Network Improvements – PCoIP handling of adverse network conditions has been significantly improved. This is especially beneficial for users connecting wirelessly from tablets or laptops over congested and lossy WiFi networks. These enhancements are most apparent during video playback and ensure fluid high-frame video playback — the improvement can be as high as 8X.
  • Interactivity Improvements – Significant improvements have also been made to interactivity, making interaction with the remote desktop significantly more fluid, and continuing to further improve the experience associated with using a remote desktop. As a simple visual test of this improvement, the picture below show a user rapidly drawing a spiral in mspaint, when connecting to their remote desktop using both RDP7 and View 5.1.
