F5 Networks releases deployment guide for VMware View 4

F5 Networks released a deployment and procedures guide for VMware View. This document provides guidance and configuration procedures for deploying the BIG-IP Local Traffic Manager (LTM) v10 with VMware View.

Probably one of the most interesting features provided by F5 BIG-IP appliance is the ability to create UDP tunneling with dTLS (datagram TLS) and TCP fall back. dTLS aim to improve PCoIP UDP end user experience over high latency networks such as the internet.

The video below demonstrate the capabilities of the dTLS datagram:


Deploying the BIG-IP LTM system with VMware View is tested and validated with BIG-IP LTM v10.0 and 10.1 and View v4.

The deployment guide can be found here.

    This is an old but very interesting post, not much on the net about peoples experience with this dTLS UDP feature and whether it does actually improve high latency connections.

    Looking at an application where endpoint AV checks need to be done before allowing a PCoIP connection.

    Would be really interested to hear from anyone with any experience of this? especially interested with highly latent links about 100-250ms and view experience.
